Snow complicating first Ohio commute of 2014

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Another big snow storm is complicating the first morning commute of 2014.

Accumulations ranging from 4 to 6 inches are expected across the state as snow began falling before dawn Thursday. It was predicted to last into the afternoon, with Cleveland and northeastern Ohio expected to get the heaviest accumulation.

Snow is reducing visibility and making roads slippery as people are returning to work after the holidays. Some schools that were scheduled to be back in session after the holiday break were delayed or closed.

Temperatures are also expected to drop into the teens over the next few days in the state.

The storm is expected to bring heavy snow, strong winds and bitter temperatures to much of the northeast.
