Lake Effect Snow Warning: Heavy Snowfall Expected For Region
Meteorologists warn that the eastern suburbs of Cleveland could receive lots of snow between Monday and Wednesday
The National Weather Service has issued a lake effect snow warning for the eastern suburbs of Cleveland -- including Solon.
Meteorologists say the region could receive as much as 10 to 20 inches of snow between Monday and Wednesday morning at 7 a.m.
The snow will be caused by an arctic airmass that is moving into the area.
Its cold air combined with the low pressure across the Great lakes will allow for the possibility of persistent lake effect snow across Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania.
Lake-effect snow is expected to return Monday afternoon and continue through Tuesday night.
The snow will also be paired with a drop in temperatures. Thermometers are expected to dip to between 4 and 20 degrees through Wednesday.
Finally, a wind chill advisory has been issued for Sunday morning.
Wind speeds are expected to reach between 15 and 25 miles per hour and reach gusts of 35 mph. The wind will feel as if it is 10 degrees below zero or lower.
