CLEVELAND — A Winter Weather Advisory has been activated in a few counties as we track some lake effect snow here in Northeast Ohio.

So how much snow can you expect and where?

“Latest model guidance brings several inches of snow – perhaps 3-6 in areas of the snow belt,” says 3News meteorologist Matt Wintz.

The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 7 a.m. Monday until 4 a.m. Tuesday in the following counties:

  • Ashtabula (inland)
  • Cuyahoga
  • Lake
  • Geauga

“This evening into tonight, the wind will turn more north / northwest, so that would bring the snow bands a little bit further inland,” Wintz explains.

The National Weather Service warns drivers to plan on slippery road conditions.

“Slow down and use caution while traveling,” the National Weather Service advises.

We’re also keeping a close eye on the brutally cold temperatures impacting the region with wind chills in the single digits.
