CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Many areas overnight saw up to 4 inches of snow in Northeast Ohio.
That’s causing some outages with power lines weighed down under the weight of the snow and also tree branches snapping.
On the highways and interstates, some areas just have one lane clear.
The secondary roads are in a little rougher shape, but ground temps should help get melting going as the sun rises.
