The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a winter storm warning for a mix of snow…sleet and freezing rain which is in effect from 10 pm this evening to 7 pm est Wednesday. The winter storm watch is no longer in effect.
Snow will develop this evening and continue through the night. snowfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches can be expected tonight ahead of the warm front.
Snow will continue on Tuesday but is expected to be light in intensity as the first wave of snow moves east of the area. The snow will then increase in intensity again late Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. However…due to warm air moving north ahead of the storm system…the snow will become mixed with sleet and freezing rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The mixed precipitation will reduce the amount of snow accumulation south of the lake shore. Freezing rain will cause ice to accumulate on exposed untreated surfaces.
Ice will accumulate around one quarter of an inch where the freezing rain develops. Higher amounts of ice accumulation between one quarter and one half an inch are possible…mainly across the southern tier areas…if the precipitation changes to freezing rain much sooner.
Total storm snow accumulation will be around 3 inches across the south and around 12 inches near the lake shore.
The storm system will move east of the area Wednesday afternoon changing any mixed precipitation over to all snow. the snow will gradually taper off to light snow toward evening on Wednesday.
A winter storm warning is issued when severe winter weather is expected. heavy snow and/or ice will cause hazardous driving conditions. If you will be traveling in the warning area you should choose an alternate route if possible, or you should use extreme caution if travel is unavoidable.
