Central Ohio Braces For Latest Round Of Winter Weather
It’s a good day for most local students to already be off of school, as a large snowstorm moves into Central Ohio.
Forecasts call for 2-4 inches of snow during the day Monday, with wind gusts up to 24 miles per hour. The snow is expected to ramp up Monday night and early Tuesday morning, with another 3-5 inches of new snowfall likely to cause big problems with the Tuesday commute.
Most schools, state and local government offices are closed Monday for President’s Day.
