Winter Storm Warning ending earlier than expected

March 15, 2017: Good news! The Winter Storm Warning for several spots in Northeast Ohio is ending earlier than expected.

Good news!

The National Weather Service has trimmed its timeframe on Wednesday’s Winter Storm Warning impacting several counties.

The weather alert -- which was originally slated to end at 8 p.m. -- will now wrap up at 4 p.m.

The following counties remain under that Winter Storm Warning:

- Cuyahoga
- Lake
- Geauga
- Ashtabula
- Summit
- Portage

Forecasters are predicting an additional 1-3 inches could accumulate where lake effect snow bands persist. Locally higher amounts are also possible -- especially on the higher terrain of Geauga County and Northwestern Pennsylvania.

Trumbull County is the only remaining Northeast Ohio region still under a Winter Weather Advisory, which is also set to expire at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Another inch or two of snow is possible within portions of the county.

All previous winter weather alerts -- including those impacting Stark and Medina counties -- have been canceled.
