A powerful Nor'Easter will track across Eastern Pennsylvania and New York this morning. As the storm drifts westward, expect spotty rain and snow showers to begin in Ashtabula and Trumbull Counties after 9 a.m.

The cut-off will be very sharp... Most of Portage, Geauga and Lake Counties may only see a few rain showers throughout the day. If you live west of I-77, expect cloudy skies with no precipitation.

Accumulating snow is possible this evening and overnight in Ashtabula and Trumbull Counties as temperatures fall. Snow will transition to lake-effect early Tuesday. Lake effect rain/snow showers are likely through Tuesday afternoon. Snow totals will be minimal in far eastern Ohio.

Everyone else will be impacted by very gusty winds through late tonight. High temperatures will reach the mid-to-upper 40s. Lows drop to the low 30s tonight.

By Wednesday, the storm will be long-gone. Temperatures will reach the upper 50s under partly cloudy skies.

A quick-moving low pressure system will bring a chance of rain Thursday, before dry weather returns at the end of the week.
