CLEVELAND — Snow is spreading across Northeast Ohio early this morning and will become widespread around sunrise. Widespread accumulating snow from a clipper plus lake effect snow is expected throughout the day on Sunday. Travel could be very difficult. Slow down and use caution while traveling.

A Winter Weather Advisory was expanded overnight to include every county in the Power of 5 viewing area until Sunday afternoon and night. The advisory expired Sunday evening but remains in effect for the following counties until 11 p.m.:

  • Cuyahoga
  • Lorain
  • Lake
  • Geauga


This clipper will move across the region early Sunday and looks to become widespread around sunrise through the mid afternoon. Expect accumulating snow across the area from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.. Snow could be heavy at times leading to slick roads and several hours of low visibility. Snow will gradually taper off between 2-5 p.m. and will likely come to an end for most of the area by the mid-afternoon. However, lake effect snow bands are likely to linger in the snowbelt and lead to higher snowfall amounts for the rest of the day. Lake effect is expected to end by Sunday night/Monday morning. The winter weather advisory is in effect for Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga Counties until 11 pm.

Snow will be widespread. Accumulation will be likely for most of the area on Sunday. The axis of heaviest snow has shifted to the north. Expect a few inches of snow, three to six inches, for most of Northeast Ohio. However, higher amounts (4-7 inches or more) will be likely for some communities in the snowbelt due to lingering lake effect snow. The lowest totals are expected in our southern most communities. This snow expected to be pretty light and fluffy, so blowing and drifting snow will be possible.
