It was a short night for road crews throughout Northeast Ohio.
In Akron, most roads remain snow-covered and slippery.
As predicted, several inches of snow fell in the region overnight, ending around 4:30 a.m.
"We are currently working on primaries only," said Keith Harpster with Akron Snow and Ice Control. "We haven't been on any secondary routes, so all secondary streets will bring some difficulty in traveling."
Harpster says they hope to begin addressing those needs later in the morning.
Harpster says two things worked in their favor: Temperatures hovered in the upper teens/low 20's, about 15 degrees warmer than it was Friday morning. Second, the timing of the winter storm was ideal since the snow fell after the Friday afternoon rush hour and volume tends to be light during the early hours on a Saturday morning.
Interstates in the Akron area were also snow-covered around 5:30 a.m.
