The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for most of the region -- including Summit County.
Meteorologists are warning that southwest winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts reaching up to 41 mph will rattle the region today.
The strongs winds are being caused by an arctic front that has moved into the area.
The advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. today.
Furthermore, the wind is expected to be joined by precipitation. Meteorologists predict that rain showers will turn into snow by the mid-morning today.
The snow will persist through Wednesday with between one and three inches falling by Wednesday night.
