CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - This is what we advertised!

Today is an ALERT day.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 10 P.M. for 6 or more inches of snow along the lakeshore of Ashtabula County.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Lake County and inland Ashtabula County until 10 P.M. for 3 to 6 inches of snow today.

The rest of us will see amounts of between a trace and 3 inches. More of our classic Lake Effect snow can be expected throughout the day and into tonight.

Adding insult to injury, winds will be gusting up to 40 mph at times blowing snow across roadways and elsewhere as temperatures today struggle to reach the mid 30s.
