ODOT said it had more than 100 crews out, most in Northeast Ohio, Friday.

As the FOX 8 Weather Team predicted, the heaviest snow was in the snow belt.

ODOT pointed out how a few miles made the difference in many areas between snow, wet and dry roads.

OHGO announced the speed limit on I-90 in Lake County was reduced to 60 mph due to the conditions.

FOX 8 Meteorologist Scott Sabol says bands of lake effect will last through 10 a.m.

The ground temperatures still remained warm enough that crews who treated the roads got some extra help.
