Lake Effect Snow Warnings and Advisories are in effect through early Monday afternoon. 


A lake effect snow warning is in effect for Geauga and Ashtabula counties and a lake effect snow advisory has been expanded, in effect for Cuyahoga, Portage, Medina and Summit counties through the early afternoon. 


This could affect the morning commute for many with the heaviest snow arriving between 2 or 3 am through 9 or 10 am Monday.  Where squalls persist, some folks in the warning area could see 5-8 inches of snow. In the advisory areas, I expect less - closer to 2-4 inches.

Regardless of the accumulation, Lake Effect snow can bring unpredictable visibility conditions and drivers should be prepared for rapid changes in weather.
