As Friday’s storm nears, the Cleveland 19 News meteorologists will continue to update the timeline below.


  • 6 a.m. – 10 a.m.: Temperatures in the 40s with rain showers. Overall the morning commute shouldn’t be too bad. It’ll just be wet and rainy.
  • 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.: As temperatures fall into the 30s during the day, rain will change to freezing rain/ice and sleet. We could be dealing with a coating of ice for midday, afternoon, and evening commuters. Roads will be dicey.

  • 7 p.m. – midnight: Freezing rain/ice and sleet will mix with and then change to widespread snow. Snow will cover already icy roads. Travel is not advised. Several inches of snow are likely. Snow will continue through the overnight hours.


  • 6 a.m. – noon: Snow continues. Temperatures will have fallen into the teens at this point. Several inches of additional snow are likely. Travel will be hazardous, especially in the morning.

  • Noon – 6 p.m.: Snow showers will begin to wind down from west to east with temperatures in the teens all day. Since we will not get above freezing, roads will be touch and go in spots.
  • 6 p.m. – midnight: Snow may linger in some areas through the evening and overnight hours, as lake effect kicks in. Temperatures will fall into the single digits overnight, so roads will still be touch and go in spots.
