National Weather Service receives report of ‘ice pellets’ in Mayfield Heights

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A National Weather Service meteorologist said the agency received a report of icy precipitation Saturday morning in Mayfield Heights. 

“We just received a report of ‘ice pellets’ in Mayfield Heights,” meterologist Gary Garnet tweeted just before 8 a.m. Saturday.

Lake effect showers rolled through much of northeast Ohio Saturday morning with temperatures dipping below 40 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

It’s not unprecedented for greater Cleveland to accumulate some snow before Halloween. The first snowfall in 2015 was Oct. 17, and in 2008, Oct. 29. It has been as early as Oct. 2 in 1974 and 2003.
