Original Report:

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Franklin, Delaware, Licking, Madison and Union counties beginning at 4 a.m. and lasting until 10 p.m. Monday.

According to the NWS, 2 to 3 inches of snow are expected in those areas.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

A fast-moving clipper system will approach from the upper Midwest, bringing snow to the region starting as early as Monday morning. While snow will start in the morning, little to no accumulation is expected during the morning hours.

Snow chances will increase throughout the day, with the bulk of the snow arriving later in the afternoon and evening, during the busy commute home.

Snow will then taper off overnight into Tuesday morning.

This system will not bring as much snow as what we most recently received, but it looks to bring light accumulations (1-3” possible) by daybreak Tuesday.

The bulk of the snow will be over central Ohio, with lesser amounts further south.

After the passage of this system, Tuesday morning will be frigid & blustery, with subzero wind chills. This system will reinforce the arctic air across Ohio until the weekend.
