Latest on Central Ohio Snowfall: Road conditions, snow emergencies


Overnight, a fast-moving system brought a widespread swath of snow showers across central Ohio. Waking up this morning, most of us saw dry, powdery snow on the ground.

The good news is that the bulk of the snow has moved through, so we are left with a fresh blanket of snow and some scattered flurries for the rest of the day.
