CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - High-impact lake effect snow is in the short-term forecast for the Primary Snow Belt.

The National Weather Service has issued Winter weather alerts for a portion of our area. (This is through tomorrow.)

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for Lake and Geauga counties.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning is in effect for Ashtabula County.

The greatest impact, and the highest accumulation, will be in the Primary Snow Belt.

Those of you in Lake, Ashtabula, Geauga and Cuyahoga counties should expect occasional lake effect snow bands and squalls for the next 24 hours.

In Cuyahoga County, the snow may be pretty sparse until early Thursday morning.

Outside of the Primary Snow Belt, we will see occasional snow showers through tomorrow, but the accumulation and the impact will be much lower.

Cloudy skies and colder-than-normal weather will dominate the forecast through the weekend.

More lake effect snow showers are in the forecast on Friday, mainly along the eastern lake shore.

The weekend will start on a quiet note, but more lake effect snow is in the forecast for Sunday.
