Heavier snowfall expected closer to the Highway 30 to Interstate 80 corridor. In fact, parts of Northeast Ohio could get several inches of snow from Monday evening through Wednesday morning.
Temperatures are expected to fall into the upper teens by Wednesday morning with 10 to 15 miles per hour winds and gusts to 25 miles per hour are possible, especially closer to Lake Erie. However, continued bands of lake effect snow will be possible around the Thumb and Port Huron. North of there, though, heavy snow is likely. Rain showers are likely through the day, but that is expected to change to snow late in the day Monday as temperatures head steadily down. That will make conditions right for snow in some areas. Most of the accumulating snow arrives this afternoon and evening. More than 3 inches of snow could be on the ground Tuesday morning and another inch could fall during the day.
Bitterly cold temperatures will stick around through much of the week. With these snowfall amounts, this will be the most widespread significant snowfall yet of the young fall/winter snow season.
As the snow exits from west to east on Tuesday, cold air will return, with below normal temperatures likely for a large part of the eastern US for the balance of the week.
