Forecasters predict about 2 to 4 inches of new snow by this evening in parts of the county. There are 4 to 7 inches already on the ground in various locations, the NWS report states.

A high temperature of 34 is expected today, and light snow with a low of 28 degrees is probable for tonight. Precipitation of a half inch or less tonight is likely, according to the weather service.

Medina resident Jerry Turner, who was clearing snow of sidewalks along West Union Street earlier today, said he’s getting used to a snow storm on about a weekly basis.

“I just like to get out and help the neighbors,” he said. “It’s something to do when I’m off work.”

Henry Davis, who was shoveling snow along North Elmwood Street, agreed.

“I’m kind of the neighborhood grunt,” Davis said jokingly. “I enjoy being able to get out.”
