CLEVELAND — The lake effect snow machine is cranking up Wednesday with snow developing during the morning commute through the afternoon.

Geauga and Ashland counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory until 10 a.m. Thursday.

Snow is beginning to stick on the roads on I-271 northbound near the US 422 split. A crash was reported on I-271 southbound near Harvard.

The morning commute could be difficult in some areas. As of 6:15 a.m., the Ohio Department of Transportation has 400 crews across the state treating the roadways.

Lake effect snow will bring the highest accumulations to inland locations and higher surfaces. The snow will intensify later Wednesday evening and continue into Thursday.
