CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A wintry mix of rain and snow is moving through northern Ohio early this evening.

We’re expecting accumulations of one to three inches from Akron north to the lakeshore.

For Canton and areas to the south, expect three to five inches of snow by Saturday morning.

Bands of lake effect will develop Saturday afternoon.

One to four inches of additional accumulation will occur in snow squalls.

The lake effect snow will finally wind down after midnight Saturday evening.
