Winter Storm Warning In Effect Now Through Thursday Morning

Travelers should expect hazardous driving conditions, reports National Weather Service.

Old Man Winter has been pretty quiet the past month, but he's expected to roar into North Canton today to deposit anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow – then blow it all around.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Stark and other Northeast Ohio counties that runs from 7 a.m. today through 7 a.m. Thursday.

The storm could spell trouble for post-Christmas travelers, as the government agency is saying heavy snow will combine with gusty northeast winds to create hazardous driving conditions.

"Heavy snow will make travel difficult Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. Visibilities could be reduced to near zero at times from the combination of falling and blowing snow," ," the agency reported. "You should use extreme caution if travel is unavoidable."

Forecasters at The Weather Channel are saying chance of precipitation in North Canton is 100 percent and that those winds will be blowing at 24 mph. The temperature is expected to hover around 30 degrees all day.

A blizzard warning is in effect for counties across Northeast Ohio, including: Cuyahoga, Lorain, Erie, Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Lake and the lakeshore communities of Ashtabula County, WEWS reports.
