It may be sunny — or partly cloudy — now, but the fluffy white stuff is about to fly.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory ahead of expected snowfall for much of Northeast Ohio. The storm could drop up to six inches of snow between tonight and Saturday night.
Among those counties included in the advisory are Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas, Carroll, Columbiana, Wayne and Holmes.
"The snow will spread across the region from west to east later tonight and then taper off by late Saturday evening," the weather service said Friday morning on its website at www.erh.noaa.gov. Accumulations were listed at 5 to 6 inches of snow.
The advisory was scheduled to be effective from midnight Friday through 10 p.m. Saturday.
The temperature was expected to reach 27 degrees Friday before falling to an overnight low of 23 and then rising Saturday to a high of 32, the weather service said.
The chance of snow last listed at 100 percent for Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night, falling to 40 percent on Sunday.

On-street parking for much of this weekend will be banned due to expected snowfall.
PLAIN TWP Due to the expected snowfall this weekend, the township is banning on-street parking within its boundaries from midnight tonight to noon Sunday, said Trustee Louis Giavasis.
He said Stark County sheriff's deputies will be ticketing and arranging for the towing of vehicles that do not comply with the parking ban. Vehicle owners would have to pay impound fees to get their cars back.
Giavasis said the parked vehicles need to be off the streets, so they don't obstruct township snow plows.
