If you were hoping for a White Christmas, you got it - and the snow doesn't stop there.

Heavy snow, strong winds and hazardous travel are all things to look out for and be careful of through Wednesday.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning is in effect for much of Northeast Ohio until 4 p.m. Wednesday, especially east of Painesville and Chardon. These areas could see at least 9 inches of snow through Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Ashtabula and Erie Counties should especially be on the lookout for heavy snow throughout today and tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service is also reporting wind gusts up to 30 to 40 mph at times throughout the day, causing blowing and drifting snow. Drivers should take caution when traveling on the roads. Wind chills will also fall below zero tonight.
