Cleveland, are you ready for some snow? And by some, we mean a lot. For three days. Yippee.
The lake may have finally frozen and lake-effect snow may be done for the winter, but it looks like the Forest City will be smashed by a huge storm for the next three days. How big? Here's our favorite forecast so far, from NewsNet5:
Right now, our forecast calls for light steady snow to arrive across the area Monday night. The snow could mix with sleet, especially south of the Interstate 76. After a 2 to 4 inch snowfall Monday night, scattered light snow and light sleet will continue thru the day on Tuesday. Another round of snow will move in Tuesday night with an additional 6+ inches possible. We would likely see a transition to all sleet and or freezing rain early Wednesday before the morning rush hour. Freezing rain would transition to rain in Akron, Canton, Mansfield, Youngstown & Wooster by 8 or 9am. With the entire region seeing some rain by late morning or early afternoon. The rain would change back to light snow late Wednesday afternoon or evening as colder air sweeps in again behind the storm. This averaged scenario would likely require weather advisories or perhaps even a few warnings to be issued for parts of Northern Ohio as early as Monday afternoon.
