CLEVELAND, Ohio — In anticipation of an incoming snowstorm, the National Weather Service in Cleveland issued a winter weather advisory for Ashtabula, Trumbull and Portage counties in Northeast Ohio 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The advisory includes areas outside Northeast Ohio, stretching across Stark, Mahoning and Holmes counties in Ohio, and Erie and Crawford counties in northwest Pennsylvania. Snowfall in those counties could reach 3 to 5 inches, inducing slippery road conditions, including during Wednesday morning’s commute.

The weather service says to prepare for snow-covered roads and limited visibilities, and to use caution while driving.

The snow is stemming from an area of low pressure moving up the Ohio Valley. Snow associated with the low center will spread across northern Ohio and northwestern Pennsylvania late Tuesday night. The snow will continue most of the day Wednesday, before tapering off toward the evening.

Areas outside the advised counties will still see snow, just in lesser amounts not yet warranting an advisory.
