Winter weather advisory issued for Huron County

• Jan 7, 2018 at 5:49 PM

The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a winter weather advisory for Huron County and surround areas that will be in effect from midnight to 1 p.m. Monday.

Snow will move in from the west tonight, changing over to a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow for many for a few hour period before changing back over to all snow around the morning rush.

From Cleveland to Canton and points west, a light glaze of ice and 1 to 3 inches of snow are expected. East of the Cleveland to Canton line precipitation is expected to remain mostly all snow with 2 to 5 inches of snow expected through Monday afternoon.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Here are additional details from the weather service:

• Mixed precipitation expected. Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday. Total snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze are expected.

• Portions of north central, northeast and northwest Ohio.

• Precipitation will start off as all snow. A transition to a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow is expected around 1 to 2 a.m. along the I-75 corridor and around 3 to 4 a.m. along the I-71 corridor. Precipitation should change back over to all snow everywhere by 7 a.m. The heaviest precipitation is expected to fall from 4 through 9 a.m.

• Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.
