Winter Weather Advisory
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Friday to 3 p.m. Saturday for all of northeast Ohio.

3News Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling says we can expect snow late Friday, which will change to an icy mix Saturday morning. Betsy is predicting 1-3 inches of snow in addition to sleet, rain and freezing rain.

Betsy provided a live update just prior to the start of the advisory on, Facebook Live, and YouTube. You can watch it in the player below:

The rain will change back to some snow Saturday night as colder air wraps in behind the storm system. Sunday will feature snow showers that transition to lake effect snow as much colder air moves in. Highs will struggle to get out of the 20s. 

The Ohio Department of Transportation says preparations are underway, with 325 snow plow drivers ready to plow and salt roads across 17 counties. ODOT says crews will work around the clock in 12 and 16-hour shifts.
