CLEVELAND — It's just the beginning of a wintry mix coming through Northeast Ohio as several storm systems move through the Ohio Valley and the lower Great Lakes over the next 7 to 10 days.

A variety of weather is likely, with scattered snow and some rain Monday into Tuesday, then it's back to more snow on Wednesday.

Same conditions just different days. The same snow scenario will arrive on Friday and Saturday with another system bringing more snow and/or ice to the area by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

Right now, these storms look to be mainly disruptive rather than severe. But, any shift in the path of these storms could change our fortune quickly.

For now, watch these following impacts:

  • Overnight snow means by Monday at sunrise, roads will be slick which likely will cause slow travel for Monday a.m rush hour. Dozens of schools are closed or delayed Monday. See full list here.
  • Monday brings the threat for more scattered light snow and perhaps some afternoon freezing rain before it changes over to rain sometime Monday night and early Tuesday. No ice is good ice.
  • Once again, right now, it appears to be disruptive weather. The Weather Team and I are in constant communication, monitoring the latest developments, honing our weather plan and weather stories as we move into the new week.
