CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland National Weather Service said on Sunday that a winter storm watch for much of northeastern Ohio remained in effect for Monday.
The advisory is effective before sunrise Monday through Tuesday morning, according to the NWS. Heavy lakefront snow is possible, with the potential for total snowfall accumulations to be between six and 10 inches. Wind gusts could also reach around 35 mph.
The heaviest snowfall is likely to fall east of Cuyahoga in Lake and Geauga counties, the NWS advisory says. These snow bands are also expected to reach southern Ashtabula County.
The National Weather Service is warning that travel could be very difficult during the snowfall and that unsafe conditions could impact travel on Monday.
The forecast for Monday’s possible snowstorm is changing, so the NWS recommends watching for updates on the weather and how it might affect you.
At around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, there was light rain and fog at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, and the temperature was around 42 degrees. Temperatures are expected to dip into teens overnight, however, and stay in the low 20s on Monday.
