Winter Weather Advisory: 2-4" of snow possible in parts of central Ohio

 Central Ohio will see its first measurable snowfall of the season.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until midday Tuesday for all of Central Ohio and extended until Wednesday morning for Coshocton, Guernsey, Knox, Muskingum, Noble, and Richland counties.

About 2-4” of snow is possible in the Columbus area by Tuesday afternoon with a few spots getting a little more. We’ll see more snow, 3-5” in the north with a few isolated spots getting up to 6” from Mansfield to Cleveland.


Temperatures this evening are around freezing, but gusty winds have the wind chill ten degrees cooler in the 20s. Snow is starting to stick to the ground here in central Ohio News. 

Overnight, temperatures will tumble into the upper twenties with wind chills in the teens. Snow will continue to fall.

Snow showers will pick up into the night and will continue to accumulate across the state heading into Tuesday morning. For those hitting the roads during the morning commute, be careful and take it slow as the roads will likely be slick.

Snow showers will continue to move through Tuesday morning, with winds picking back up out of the west. Highs will only be in the low 30s and with the winds, it will only feel like it's in the teens all day.

Some bands of lake-effect snow will be possible during this time, with heavier amounts of snow for those north near the snow belts. 

Snow will taper off during the evening hours on Tuesday, with most of the accumulating snow done by sunset. This will set up for more slick conditions during the evening commute, so be careful out of the roads.

As the snow wraps up, temperatures will continue to fall into the 20s Tuesday night. Winds will stay breezy, with more wind chill values in the teens by Wednesday morning. 


Most of the snow will be to our north and lesser amounts will be to our south. 

Central Ohio:

-Those along I-70 will be in the 2-4" range. Those that are along and north of Delaware county will be close to the 3-5" range. 

-Areas a county south of I-70 are still in the 2-4" range. 

-Columbus is in the 2-4" range. 

-Depending on where these snow bands set up on Tuesday, some areas within central Ohio could get hit with an additional 1-2" of snow, but that will be highly isolated and not widespread.

Southern Ohio:

-This is where the least of the snowfall will be located, but it will still yield light accumulations across the region.

-Anywhere from 1-3" will be possible, with the higher end of the totals being found close north towards I-70. 

-The lower totals will be along and south of the Ohio River.
