COLUMBUS, Ohio – After being teased with a day of spring-like temperatures, central Ohioans were reminded that winter isn’t quite over yet.

Snow emergencies were declared in some northwest Ohio counties Wednesday morning as heavy snow closed many schools and the University of Toledo. Some school districts in central Ohio canceled classes early in the morning as a precaution.

Parts of central Ohio could get 1 to 3 inches of snow. With area temperatures in the 60s on Tuesday, the precipitation could create slushy driving conditions for afternoon commuters.

The National Weather Service says a storm system that has already brought rain will dump up to 8 inches of snow in the Chicago area and northern Indiana and more along the Great Lakes in northern Ohio, Pennsylvania and upstate New York.

Cleveland is under a winter storm warning and the Toledo area could see 6 to 10 inches of snow.

Forecasters say rain will start Tuesday evening and eventually change over to snow after midnight as colder air moves into the region. Wind gusts could reach up to 50 mph. And a glaze of ice is possible.

The storm comes on the heels of a pleasant day Tuesday that saw temperatures in the 60s in many areas of the state.

The winter has been especially long and cold in the state, with some cities seeing record snowfall and cold temperatures.
