This is a weak lake-effect snow event. Warm ground temperatures will also limit how much can stick. Elevated and grassy surfaces may be able to accumulate up to an inch. 

With a dominant north wind, snow will be possible across all of Northeast Ohio. Many of the bands will be coming from Lake Huron, then consequently enhanced by Lake Erie.

It will not stay cold forever! This Easter weekend looks great. A mix of sun and clouds will return as light southerly winds bring us back toward the 60-degree mark. Highs will reach the 70s by next week.
