COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Several central Ohio counties have declared Level 1 Snow Emergencies ahead of more winter weather expected to move through the region Sunday.

Those counties are:

  • Guernsey
  • Hocking
  • Jackson
  • Muskingum
  • Perry
  • Pickaway
  • Pike
  • Vinton

An upper impulse brought periods of light snow that diminished to freezing drizzle, mixed with a few flurries, and areas of fog tonight. Watch for widespread slippery areas on sidewalks and roads in subfreezing temperatures overnight making travel potentially hazardous on untreated surfaces.

LEVEL 1:
Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.

LEVEL 2:
Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.

LEVEL 3:
All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
