Snow Coming To Central Ohio

The season's largest snowfall and coldest temperatures are coming to Central Ohio. The National Weather Service predicts the region will see up to five inches of snow between Monday night and Tuesday morning. The most snow is expected to fall in areas north of Columbus. Forecasts say another two inches could fall later Tuesday morning. Cleanup efforts are expected to be hampered by plummeting temperatures. The thermometer is not expected to make it out of the teens on Wednesday. Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, forecasters predict a low of -5 for Columbus; some outlying areas could see lows near -10. Columbus public safety officials say crews have pre-treated bridges, ramps and overpasses in preparation for the snow. The city took heavy criticism last winter for a lack of snow plows that left many city streets snow covered for several days.
