CLEVELAND — A major East Coast winter storm is tracking a bit further north Tuesday, bringing potentially disruptive snow to Northern Ohio Wednesday through Thursday morning.

Model guidance has shifted the storm track further north for Wednesday, which is expected to bring accumulating snow north into our area, with peak snow Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday morning, according to Power of 5 Chief Meteorologist Mark Johnson.

Johnson said the Greater Cleveland area and lake shore should expect an inch or two. Akron is in the 1-to-3 or 2-to 4-inch range. Canton, Dover and the area from Dover to New Philadelphia may get more than 4 inches of snow by Thursday morning.

The snow will be heaviest during the evening commute on Wednesday, meteorologist Bryan Shaw said.
