Winter storm triggers weather alerts: How much snow you can expect

Here we go again...

After several days of warm temperatures and sunshine, Mother Nature is bringing us back to a winter reality.

Snow is set to make an impact on Northeast Ohio from Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning, which is why several counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory.

Here’s how it breaks down…

- Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties are under the advisory from 1 p.m. Monday through 10 a.m. Tuesday. Forecasters say these areas can expect 2-4 inches of snow. Isolated totals could hit 5 inches. The heaviest snow is expected from 3 p.m. Monday until midnight.

- Ashtabula County is under the advisory from 4 p.m. Monday through 10 a.m. Tuesday. Snow totals here will range from 3-5 inches. The heaviest snow is expected to fall from 6 p.m. Monday through 3 a.m. Tuesday.

“Localized areas of heavy snow may occur again around the Tuesday morning commute, mainly across Cuyahoga County,” according to the National Weather Service.

It's also important to note that just because your county isn't included in the Winter Weather Advisory doesn't mean you won't get snow. This winter storm will bring accumulating conditions to everybody in the WKYC viewing area.
