The snow moved in this Saturday and we saw steady snowfall throughout the afternoon and into the evening. What’s turned out to be the biggest snowfall of the season led to slick roads and snow emergencies across Central Ohio.

As of this writing (10 p.m.) much of Central Ohio was under a Winter Storm Warning or Winter Weather Advisory. These are in effect well into Sunday morning. Generally, snow totals have been around 3.0 - 4.5” inches across much of the area with isolated areas getting a little less or a little more depending on where you are. Here are some of the reports the NWS has gotten so far from across the area:

Lancaster: 5.6”

Washington Courthouse: 5.0”

Valleyview: 5.0”

Groveport: 4.5”

Dublin: 4.5”

Leesburg: 4.0”

Pickerington: 3.8”

Grandview Heights: 3.5”

Bexley: 3.5”

Centerburg: 3.5”

Mansfield: 3.0”

Marion: 3.0”

Athens: 3.0”

McConnelsville: 3.0”

Zanesville: 3.0”

Anecdotally, we’ve received reports of 5” to nearly 7” via social media in some areas south and southeast of the city. The snow isn’t quite over yet but will be tapering off as we head through the overnight hours.
