CLEVELAND — While the winter storm is in our rearview mirror, the remnants of a winter mess remain right in front of us—power outages, knee-deep snow in some places, and school closings.

All winter storm warnings and advisories have been canceled for Northeast Ohio.

The skies will clear from West to East Wednesday. Most areas will enjoy sunny skies by this afternoon, but it won't give us much relief. Come Wednesday night into Thursday morning, melted snow will refreeze on roads, on parking lots, on sidewalks and driveways. Plan on pockets of ice each morning.

Damage done to Cleveland's oldest restaurant
Guarino’s Restaurant, established in 1918, announced its newly built winter garden was damaged after heavy, wet snow caused the tent to collapse. Read more here.

Snowfall totals
The National Weather Service has released its 24-hour snowfall total following Monday night’s winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow in some places. Find the snowfall total in your area here.

Power outages

While the snow has ended, power outages across the area remain with more than 47,000 residents waking up Wednesday without power. See outages in your area here.

School closings

After a winter storm dumped more than 12 inches in some places Tuesday, more than 70 schools across Northeast Ohio remain closed Wednesday. See the full list here.
