Well, here it comes. Don't like it but glad I'm prepared.
NWS Cleveland Ohio:
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CLEVELAND HAS ISSUED A LAKE EFFECT SNOW WATCH... WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.
* ACCUMULATIONS... 12 TO 24 INCHES... MAINLY FROM THE EAST SUBURBS OF CLEVELAND TO NORTHWEST PA. LOCALLY HIGHER ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE.
* TIMING... LATE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.
* WINDS... WEST 10 TO 20 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH.
* IMPACTS... ACCUMULATING SNOW WILL MAKE ROADS SLIPPERY REQUIRING LOWER SPEEDS AND GREATER DISTANCES DRIVING DISTANCES BETWEEN VEHICLES. DRIVING CONDITIONS CAN ALSO CHANGE QUICKLY IN A SHORT DISTANCE WITH LAKE EFFECT SNOW.
* TEMPERATURES... 4 TO 20 ABOVE.
* VISIBILITIES... LESS THAN 2 MILES.
A LAKE EFFECT SNOW WATCH MEANS THAT SIGNIFICANT WINTER WEATHER IS POSSIBLE IN LOCALIZED AREAS WITHIN THE NEXT 36 HOURS
Since 5:30AM, the temp has fallen from 40F to 27F and still dropping. It has been very, very windy for the last two days with winds from the Southwest. Now they're out of the west and changing to the Northwest which will likely produce the Lake Effect since the lake is unfrozen and much warmer than normal for this time of year. Here we go........... The next few days look to be interesting.
