MENTOR, Ohio -- A late winter, early spring snow storm snarled traffic and chilled attitudes in the heart of the Snowbelt Thursday.
The National Weather Service issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning for Ashtabula, Geauga and Lake counties until midday Friday.
A Lake Effect Snow Advisory was in place for Cuyahoga and Trumbull counties.
“I never enjoy snow,” said Karen Burger, as she scraped ice off her car in Mentor. “I never enjoy snow or cold.”
The snow showers have the potential to organize and deposit another 1-4" of additional snowfall where snow showers persist. Temperatures will likely be in the 20s and visibility could be reduced to about a quarter of a mile in some areas. Salt trucks are tackling some very slick roadways.
“I’m so tired of the snow. I wish spring was here,” said Dave Rees, as he shoveled his driveway in Painesville.
The weather is always unpredictable this time of year in Northeast Ohio. Last March temperatures were in the 80s.
Lake County residents say don’t worry, those days will be here soon enough.
“It’ll be over shortly and then we’ll be complaining cause it’s too hot,” said Burger.
