Winter storm update

TUESDAY MORNING POST:

Forecast is still on track.  Snow will turn steady this afternoon into this evening, making for increasing travel problems.  A winter weather advisory is in effect through Wednesday morning.  Additional lake-effect snow will occur in Erie/Huron counties Wednesday afternoon.

MONDAY EVENING POST:

We continue to track a major winter storm moving towards the area.

Snow will begin  Tuesday morning or midday, but should not cause a significant problem for the morning rush hour.  Snow will turn steady and possibly heavy at times during the mid/late afternoon into the evening.  Accumulations of a few inches will be likely by the evening rush hour, with additional snow Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning.

Final accumulations by midday Wednesday will be at least 4 inches across the entire area, but could reach as high as 8 inches in spots.
