CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – From 1 to 7 inches, the snow didn’t miss anyone in Northeast Ohio.

The National Weather Service’s early reports had Shaker Heights with the most snow, at 7.5 inches.

They’re expected to release a full report later Wednesday.

Other than some lingering lake effect, it’s a done deal and snow started quickly melting.

Breaks of sun will take care of a lot of it.
