But how much snow will the weekend bring?

A swath of the Channel 3 viewing area can expect 1-3 inches by Sunday afternoon, while some spots east of Cleveland can expect up to 5 inches.

“I think temperature is the key here,” WKYC meteorologist Greg Dee says. “Just a couple of degrees different will really make a difference in those accumulations. For many of you, it may just be on grassy surfaces. I don’t think this will be a big impact to travel -- at least during the daylight hours on Saturday.”
