Now this feels more like it, right Cleveland? With snow already plastering the ground around the area, forecasters are saying another 4-9 inches will fall before Tuesday night.
Hot diggidy damn.
According to the Lorain Morning Journal, there's a wrap-around low pressure system that is flushing the region with cold air, and picking up plenty of moisture from Lake Erie.
A wrap-around low pressure system off the Eastern seaboard is still largely to blame for the one-two weather punch that’s slamming Northeast Ohio.
Combined with the relatively still-warm and open Lake Erie and Lake Huron, there’s ample moisture for the system to keep pounding the region through Tuesday evening.
Worse yet, weather experts say, another powerful system will continue to supply snow-rich, blustery air.
For this reason the entire Northeast Ohio area — along with northwest Pennsylvania — is under a lake-effect snow warning until 7 p.m., Tuesday.
An Ohio Department of Transportation spokeswoman said the Burton area of Geauga County already has approximately 1 foot of snow on the ground.
