Snow makes commutes slow, slick as Ohio schools cancel class

CINCINNATI (AP) — Overnight snowfall is creating a slippery, slow morning commute for drivers throughout much of Ohio.

Hazardous travel conditions and a notable drop in temperatures prompted road advisories from some sheriffs Tuesday and had a number of school districts delaying or canceling classes, including Columbus City Schools in the state capital.

Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories were in effect through Tuesday morning for much of the state. The National Weather Service said several inches of accumulated snow and reduced visibility could hinder morning travel.

Wind chills in the single digits were reported in some areas Monday as temperatures dropped into the teens from weekend temperatures in the 50s. Temperatures are expected to drop into single digits later this week, with wind chills below zero in parts of the state.
