COLUMBUS, Ohio – Commuters throughout Ohio were dealing with messy roads thanks to a spring snowfall.

Snow in the springtime in Ohio isn’t that rare, but this time it came on the heels of a sunny and warm weekend, not to mention at the tail end of one of the longest, coldest and cruelest winter many people can remember.

Snow accumulated in central Ohio and many other areas of the state on Tuesday, with temperatures in the 30s. Some schools were on a delay Tuesday morning because of the weather while others had to delay the start of classes because of a large power outage on the East Side of Columbus unrelated to the weather.

The northern part of the state was expected to get around 2 inches of on the ground, with less elsewhere.

The National Weather Service is calling for frigid temperatures — including a hard freeze in some parts of the state — Tuesday night into Wednesday before a gradual warm-up. Because this part of the year is considered the growing season, freeze warnings have been posted.

Highs are expected to be back in the 60s late in the week and for the weekend.
