CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Low pressure over the Southern Plains will move northeast through Ohio Thursday into Thursday night.

Then, a trough of low pressure will linger across the region through Friday night.

All of this translates to very unsettled and disruptive weather during this time.

Widespread rain will move in Thursday morning.

Rain will pick up through the day, causing ponding on the roadways and limiting visibility for drivers.

The rain will change to snow overnight Thursday into Friday, and travel conditions will continue to deteriorate.

By the time you wake up on Friday morning, it will have been snowing for several hours, so many local roadways will be coated in snow.

Visibility will be poor for Friday morning’s commute, as snow is expected to continue through the day.

The snow will finally wind down on Friday evening.

The northern half of Cuyahoga County should see two to four inches of wet snowfall.

The southern half of Cuyahoga County, as well as northern Geauga County, inland Lake County, and west central Ashtabula County should expect three to five inches of snowfall.
