Winter alerts in effect; Snow to cause travel impacts starting Sunday night into Monday
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Hard to believe a winter storm system is on its way to Northeast Ohio with the clear skies we saw on Saturday and will see through the day on Sunday.
Here is the timeline through the rest of the weekend:
Sunday starts off and stays dry.
Wake up temperatures will sink into the single digits for many early Sunday morning.
The system snow arrives late Sunday night from the south, mainly after 8 PM.
Areas south of Cleveland will see the biggest impacts overnight into early Monday morning.
The higher snow totals will be east and along the I-71 corridor, with the heaviest snow expected east of the I-77 corridor.
Regardless, snow will still be falling in these areas come Monday morning, so expect snow-covered roads and slick travel during the Monday morning commute.
The second part of the ALERT will be lake effect snow picking up and continuing through the afternoon Monday.
This is where we could pick up and additional 4-8″ in the snowbelt where snow squalls persist.
This could lead to travel impacts during the evening commute as well.
A few lake effect snow bands will linger through the first half of the day Tuesday.
This is a complicated and evolving system. Stay with the 19 First Alert Team for the latest updates.
