How Wednesday night's snowfall will impact your Thursday morning commute

Posted at 9:47 PM, Feb 12, 2020

CLEVELAND — A winter storm will bring another round of snowy, icy weather Wednesday through Friday morning.

Communities between Lorain and Ashtabula counties could wake up Thursday morning to snowfall totals between four and six inches.

Communities further south, such as Akron, Canton, Wooster and Mansfield will see sleet and ice mixing in with the snow, which will cut down the snowfall totals.

Morning commutes across Northeast Ohio will most likely be treacherous.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Johnson said you will want to give yourself some extra time to clean your car off, shovel your driveways and drive on untreated roads.

Snow squalls will happen throughout the day on Thursday, so be prepared for low visibility while driving.
