Medina County Level 1 snow emergency ends after spring snow comes down in northeast Ohio

CLEVELAND - Snow is falling across northeast Ohio and one county has been placed under a snow emergency.

The Medina County Sheriff has issued a Level 1 Snow Emergency for Medina County. A Level 1 Snow Emergency warns that roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy and to drive carefully.

Wadsworth police said the City of Wadsworth is also under a Snow Emergency in effect until further notice and there is no parking on city streets.

Power of 5 Meteorologist Jason Nicholas said the heaviest snow is through northern Medina, northern Summit, Lorain and southern Cuyahoga. The snow will continue through the morning commute before tapering a bit later Monday morning into the afternoon.

Good Morning Cleveland crews drove through treacherous conditions on I-71 and I-77 from 4:30 - 7 a.m.

ODOT said they have 80 crews out in District 12 working 12-hour shifts and will continue that until the snow passes. In District 3's eight counties, there are 102 crews out at this time and they will continue to operate with these crews until the conditions improve. Lorain County has 14 crews out, and Medina County has 16.

Some snow and rain were reported around the state during the day Sunday. But the National Weather Service says there was no significant accumulation.

A winter storm warning is in effect for much of northern Ohio, including Holmes, Carroll and Tuscarawas counties, with heavier snow amounts and temperatures in the low to mid 30s predicted.

A meteorologist for the National Weather Service says west central and southwest Ohio could see four to 10 inches, with about one to four inches expected in far northern Ohio.
