the first one is the artic cold front coming in. you can see it right here. it has a band of heavy snow. a thin band indeed but it is going to bring in low visibility and moderate burst of snow during the evening. if you are trying to get home from work or school, you got a little while longer. here. once this band gets in, it is going to be a good 20 to 30 minutes of moderate snow, slippery roadways and lower visibility. that is threat number one. through about 8 or 9:00. again we can see lighter flurries across the region right now from cleveland, up east and 90 and mentor and ashtabula and a couple of flurries developing south of sandusky. erie islands. that is what we are tracking. here is the moderate squall and the flurries. flurries for the next little while, timing this in, let's

have a look. we found snow and decreased visibility and cars have the lights on so they are able to be seen by other vehicles on the roadway. that snow is not sticking to the roadways now but as it persists you can imagine that the snow will continue to stick to the roadways and we have transitioned from fine flakes to bigger flakes and doesn't seem to be sticking. janessa web is out here. we have snow in ashtabula and how about cleveland? >> reporter: the team is tracking the snow. i am tracking the colder air. now that front is moving across the front and will cause the temperatures to plummet and the winds are picking up 20 miles per hour. and that is just going to add insult to injury as this snow starts to move in here. the temperatures, we will step out of the 20s down to the
