Lake-Effect to Continue Cleveland Travel Trouble Into Thanksgiving

Lake-effect snow following the winter storm will make for wintry travel into Thanksgiving Day around Cleveland and northeastern Ohio.

As the storm rolls up into Canada, gusty northwest winds will continue to produce bands of lake-effect snow focusing over northeastern Ohio and areas hit the hardest by the snowstorm. However, some of these bands of snow and flurries will also impact the Cleveland area.

Motorists heading eastward on I-80 and I-90 should expect major delays as temperatures fall, wet and slushy areas freeze and snow accumulates on areas that were previously wet.

Lake-effect snow will diminish later Thanksgiving Day. However, a few spotty flurries are possible into Black Friday as a weak disturbance rides southeastward across the Great Lakes.
