Major winter storm bears down on Northeast Ohio

Posted: Updated:
(WOIO) -

From temperatures in the 60s yesterday to single figures tonight - winter is making an unwanted encore.

A major storm system is now moving through today. The latest blast of wintry weather started out as rain, freezing rain and sleet before finally turning over to snow by mid-morning. 

Very strong winds will be out of the north with near 50 mph gusts possible along the lakeshore counties.

Near blizzard conditions will create tough travel conditions. The lakeshore areas will get the most snow. Expect 4"-10" of snow with lesser amounts farther inland. An additional 1"-3" is likely this evening with some lake effect added in.

Temperatures will be crashing through the 20s this afternoon and into the single digits tonight.
