Winter is returning to Northeast Ohio this weekend. A clipper system is moving SE and bringing our first widespread snowfall. It will be chilly all day Sunday and Monday with steady temperatures in the 30s and low 40s.

Snowfall is causing issues for motorists across Northeast Ohio. CLICK HERE to see the News 5 Traffic Map.

The Ohio Department of Transportation has around 200 crews out on the roads across the state.


An area of snow is spreading across Ohio and will become widespread into the early afternoon. Expect gusty winds, lowered visibility and slick spots on the roads. During the afternoon, rain will mix with snow for many locations and a few spots will see a period of only chilly rain. This evening and tonight snow will continue - especially to the east of I-71 and in the snowbelt. The best chance for accumulating wet snow looks to be at that time. Lake effect snow showers are likely throughout Monday.


We could get another inch or so for much of the area tonight into early Monday with some isolated higher totals across the snow belt. Visibility will be reduced in heavier bursts and a few slick spots could develop on elevated surfaces overnight. But most roads are expected to be wet or maybe a little slushy. Widespread snow will taper off tonight with some lake effect snow bands expected to impact parts of the snow belt into Monday.


We are expecting a range of snow totals with this system due to melting and mixing. Most of Northeast Ohio will see a trace to 2 inches of snow. However, higher totals (3 inches plus) are expected in the snowbelt and higher elevations. Most of the accumulation should stick to elevated and grassy surfaces, but bands of heavier snow could overcome road temperatures and briefly coat the roads. Prepare for slick and slushy spots on the roads!
