Chances for school closing on Thursday

While there is a chance for some school closings Thursday, it's important to remember that we don't make those decisions. School closings are ultimately decided by superintendents and other school leaders.

Snow estimates
How much snow can we expect? These are our early estimates by Friday. Keep in mind they will likely change based on the actual track of the storm.

The city of Lorain has issued a snow parking ban that will go into effect at midnight on Thursday morning. 

“This is going to have an impact on your Wednesday night plans,” 3News meteorologist Hollie Strano said. “Be that meetings after work or dinner plans or the kids have a game tonight, whatever the case may be, already be thinking ahead to allowing extra time tonight."

Strano said this storm could drop 3-5 inches of snow, but that will vary depending on how much rain mixes in.

“Tonight is going to be the brunt of it as far as the steadier precipitation.”
