Posted at 9:44 AM, Jan 09, 2022

CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a Winter Storm Advisory for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, and Lake counties from 7 a.m on Monday until 4 a.m. on Tuesday.


Accumulating lake effect snow is expected, mainly starting Monday afternoon. Three to five inches of snow is possible.


Colder air and a shift in the winds will kick the lake effect snow machine into gear. Moderate to heavy lake effect snow early Monday and will continue until early on Tuesday.

This will be a similar scenario to last week's lake effect snow event with a wide range of snowfall totals. The highest amounts are expected in the primary snowbelt/eastern Cuyahoga into Lake and Geauga counties.

Travel could be very difficult and the hazardous conditions could impact both the morning and evening commutes. It will also be frigid with temperatures in the 20s and winds could gust as high as 35 mph. Blowing and drifting snow will be likely during the afternoon.
