Flights have also been canceled at airports in Cleveland, Columbus and the Cincinnati region.
   
Ohioans are urged to monitor storm developments, especially people around Lake Erie and in low-lying areas.
   
Forecasters are warning of 30-40 mph winds that could gust to 55-60 mph in parts of central Ohio Monday afternoon and Tuesday.

They could cause damage and power outages in some areas. Forecasters say some Ohioans likely will see the season's first snow Tuesday.
