CLEVELAND — More wintry weather is on the way with accumulating snow expected across Northeast Ohio.

That's why the National Weather Service has issued a series of winter weather alerts for counties across the region (see the full list at the bottom of this story).

The snow will arrive early Wednesday morning as the National Weather Service says it's possible for snow rates of up to 1 inch per hour.

So how much snow is expected overall? 3News meteorologist Hollie Strano says 3-5 inches is a safe estimate across Northeast Ohio -- but some areas could still see upwards of 6+ inches.

School closings are also coming in.

Road conditions could be very slippery and slow, so be sure to give yourself plenty of extra time.

"Slow down and use caution while traveling," the National Weather Service warns.


ODOT says their teams are preparing for the incoming snow, advising drivers to leave early and go slow if they must travel on Wednesday. Some 300 crews will be out across Northeast Ohio to pretreat roads with salt and brine, then plow as needed. 

District 4 spokesperson Ray Marsch stressed the importance of giving plows room to work.

"It's just so much easier for them to do their job when they're not worried about vehicles either tailgating them or trying to pass them at a high rate of speed," Marsch said.

He added that ODOT drivers often see reckless motorists on the roadways.

"If you ever see our plows "tandem plowing," that's two plows, one plow following another, please don't try to get in between them and try to pass through. They're out there to clear the roads and make it safe, make it passable," Marsch said.

Crews will begin working 12-hour shifts starting at midnight on Wednesday.
