CLEVELAND — Winter is coming to Northeast Ohio. At least a quick glance of it... Lake-effect snow will be possible this weekend, late Sunday evening into early Monday.

FORECAST: Sunny Halloween followed by a wintry mix on Sunday

We're looking for your weather photos, and you have a few options: You can use the Near Me feature on the WKYC app to easily send photos right from your phone; text them to (216) 344-3300, post them on our 3News Facebook page in the comments section for this story, or use the hashtag #3weather on your social media. We will show the best on air and on WKYC.com!

3News' own Andrew Horansky already shared photos of hail from his own home. Most of the lakefront is also under a wind advisory, and the worst is likely yet to come.

COLD FRONT THIS WEEKEND

A clipper system in southern Canada will be dropping south into the weekend. Before the front arrives, light rain will be likely in Ohio on Sunday morning. Once the front pushes through with cooler air, we will see that transition over to snow showers near sunset. Scattered snow showers will be possible into early Monday morning.

HOW MUCH SNOW?

Amounts will be tricky. Here is our best guess: the lake-effect snow belt will be the winners with this quick round of snow showers with a couple inches possible. In the surrounding Cleveland metropolitan area there may be a dusting. Many spots south and west of downtown may not receive any measurable snow.

TIMING

The transition from light rain to snow showers may take place around sunset on Sunday evening. Snow showers may linger into Monday morning, dissipating before the afternoon.
