The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of Northern Ohio through Saturday afternoon.

The NWS says a storm system will bring wintry weather into the region.

A low pressure system will move northeast through the central Great Lakes Saturday. The combination of the cold air in place and plenty of moisture with the storm system will result in snow initially.

The snow will become mixed with or change over to freezing rain by Saturday morning for a period of time before becoming all rain. The low pressure system will move northeast of the area taking the precipitation with it Saturday night.

For Hancock, Seneca, Sandusky, Lucas, Ottawa, Wood and Wyandot counties, the advisory is in place from 7 p.m. Friday until 1 p.m. Saturday.

Snow will begin to move into the area Friday evening. The heaviest snow will fall tonight before becoming mixed with and changing over to freezing rain and sleet Saturday morning.

The freezing rain and sleet should only last one to three hours before the it transitions to all rain as temperatures warm to near 40 degrees Saturday afternoon.
