The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a winter weather advisory in effect from 1 p.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Light snow will begin to overspread the area this afternoon. The precipitation will then transition to sleet and freezing rain from south to north by evening.

Freezing rain will be the primary precipitation type during the evening hours. After midnight, when surface temperatures warm above freezing, rain is expected.

Precipitation amounts are expected to be light enough during the afternoon and evening for only light ice accumulations. Ice accumulations are expected to be less than 2 tenths of an inch. The snow and sleet accumulations are expected to be an inch or less, except 1 to 2 inches possible across Lucas and Wood counties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions

A winter weather advisory is normally issued for a variety of winter weather conditions such as light snow, blowing snow, sleet, freezing rain and wind chills.

While the weather will be significant, the word advisory implies that severe winter weather is not anticipated.
