CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The winter wonderland that left Northeast Ohio under a blanket of snow Wednesday morning is causing trouble on the roads.

Traffic Anchor Jamie Sullivan and Meteorologist Jeff Tanchak provide AM commuters with a weather and traffic update in the below video.

Jamie is watching a few crashes on I-480.

She says multiple drivers have spun out on the interstate near W. 130th Street.

Be ready to adjust your driving speeds. The speed limit is reduced on I-90 in Lake County due to low visibility, according to OHGO.com.

Roads in rural and residential areas may be snow-covered.

Remember: If your windshield wipers are on, your headlights should be on.

Jamie warns drivers to look out for fallen debris or power lines.
