CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 19 First Alert Weather team has already issued a First Alert Weather Day for Monday and Tuesday, but the National Weather Service has also issued their own warning for multiple Northeast Ohio counties.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties for Monday and Monday night.

However, winter weather is expected Monday into Wednesday Morning.

Precipitation will overspread the area on Monday as low pressure tracks northeast up the Ohio Valley. Precipitation will transition to snow earlier in the day in Northwest Ohio as cooler air is wrapped into the back of the system.

As the system continues eastward, remaining areas will transition to snow on Monday evening.

Several inches of snow are expected across Northeast Ohio Monday night.

By Tuesday, lake effect snows will develop across the primary snowbelt region.

Lake effect snow may be heavy at times and will continue into Wednesday morning before flow shifts any lingering bands out over Lake Erie. Snowfall in excess of 8 inches are possible.

The highest accumulations will be focused where lake effect bands persist, especially in Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula Inland and Ashtabula Lakeshore counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for parts of northwest Ohio for 3 to 5 inches of snow on Monday and Monday...

The National Weather Service also warns that record-breaking temperatures are possible to drop on Tuesday and Wednesday on top of the snowfall.

In addition to the snowfall this week, record-breaking cold temperatures are also possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. It's going to feel like the middle of January, so make sure to get that winter gear out!
