Brrrrr!!

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Central Ohio woke up to a rude reminder that it is still winter.

Early-morning lows in the Columbus area were in the single digits and wind chills were below zero.

A Wind Chill Advisory remained in effect until noon for all of central and western Ohio air temperatures expected to remain between 5 and 10 above zero with 20-30 mph winds creating dangerously cold wind chills as low as 12 below.

The state sent 70 snowplow crews out onto the roadways, clearing away slick spots on the roads after overnight snow showers lleft as much as 2 1/4 inches of snow on the ground.

There were between 46 and 51 Columbus city trucks treating arterial streets and collector streets and that process was expected to continue all day, spokesman Rick Tilton said.

More than three dozen trucks worked overnight on arterial streets and streets next to schools, Tilton said.

Frigid temperatures and dangerously cold wind chills are in the forecast for Friday night and the National Weather Service says we can expect to see at least some snow all weekend.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning remains in effect until tomorrow morning for the snowbelt counties of northeastern Ohio, with snowfall of six inches to two feet possible.

Saturday is Groundhog Day when legend maintains that, if a groundhog sees his shadow, it is a sign that there will be six more weeks of winter.
