Winter Storm Could Be on the Way for Lakewood

Rain and snow—and lots of it—are expected to start Thursday.

Update, 8:24 p.m.

The National Weather Service has upgraded this alert to a Winter Storm Warning. The warning will be in effect from 4 a.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday. Lakewood could see six to 12 inches of snow throughout that time. 

Drivers should be cautious; the service notes that heavy snow and ice could make the roads dangerous. Strong winds are also still expected.

The watch issued Thursday is no longer in effect.

The weather has been pretty mild for December in Northeast Ohio so far this year, but that could change soon. 

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for the Cuyahoga County area, including Lakewood. The watch starts Thursday night and lasts until Saturday evening.  

According to the watch, Lakewood could receive 6 to 10 inches of snow. The heaviest snow is expected Friday and Saturday. Winds are expected to be pretty strong, too, and could reach up to 55 miles per hour.  

Rain is expected for the remainder of Thursday afternoon and evening
