Another big snowstorm is ready to bear down on northwest Ohio, beginning tonight and continuing into Wednesday.
The National Weather Service in northern Indiana at 11:12 a.m. today issued a winter storm warning for northwest Ohio.
Total snowfall amounts by midday Wednesday are anticipated to be generally in the 6- to 10-inch range with the highest amounts along and south of the U.S. 24 corridor.
Snowfall rates of 1 to 1.5 inches per hour are possible with greatly reduced visibilities this evening into tonight.
Farther northwest, snowfall amounts should gradually taper to 3 to 6 inches across far northwest Indiana into extreme southwest lower Michigan.
In addition, north winds will increase and likely cause significant areas of blowing and drifting snow to develop later tonight and continue into midday Wednesday, especially in open and rural areas primarily affecting east to west roadways.
Travel will become difficult especially during the Wednesday morning commute across the region.
Interstates 65, 69 75 and 80 will be impacted. Primary roads including U.S. 6, 24, 30, 31 and 33 will becomes snow covered and hazardous. Consider alternative travel plans if possible.
