Cold temps and a few bands of precipitation drop snow and slush across several pockets of Northeast Ohio.


CLEVELAND -- Though the season is still more than a month away, quick blasts of winter weather dusted parts of Northeast Ohio with a thin layer of snow and slush overnight Thursday into Friday morning.

Two bands of precipitation that started as far west as Avon, stretched as far south as Richfield and continued out east of Solon into Geauga County.

Accumulation was minimal and most of the snow and slushy portions of the downfall is not expected to affect the morning commute.

The system largely left the Greater Cleveland area before 2 a.m.

Temperatures hovered just above freezing for most of the night. Some impromptu rain/snow showers could pop up later in the morning, but nothing is expected to stick to the ground, according to projections from the WKYC Weather Center.
