CLEVELAND — The lake-effect snow machine turned on overnight. Accumulating snow fell overnight and into early Friday with most of the viewing area in the advisory area seeing 1 or 2 inches of snow accumulation.

Weather Advisory issued and canceled
Lake-effect snow prompted a Winter Weather Advisory for Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties for Friday during the morning commute. As of 9 a.m., The National Weather Service canceled the advisories that were originally in effect until noon.

Total snow accumulations are expected between 2 and 5 inches, with Geauga and Ashtabula counties expected to get close to 6 inches.


Drivers should plan on slippery road conditions as a couple of bursts over the lake could bring some snow for the west side.
