Ohio Drivers Face More Snow, Colder Temperatures


UPDATED: Tuesday January 21, 2014 6:00 PM

The northern half of Ohio is under a wind chill advisory and commuters are being warned about dangerous driving conditions as temperatures plummet and snow is expected to blanket much of the state.
    
Forecasters were especially urging caution Tuesday in far northwest Ohio, where the National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook warning of windy weather, drifting snow and slick roads for an area that included about eight Ohio counties.
    
Several counties in the area were under snow advisories because of snowy or icy roads, as were some counties in southern Ohio.
    
Temperatures were expected to drop below freezing, with below-zero wind chills. Forecasters called for anyone headed outdoors to bundle up and keep themselves protected from potential hypothermia and frost bite.
