Ohio on alert for big winter storm

COLUMBUS (AP) — Spring might be near, but you’d never know it in Ohio and other parts of the Midwest.

The National Weather Service has put most of the Buckeye State under either a winter storm warning or winter weather advisory from 11 a.m. Tuesday to 1 p.m. Wednesday. That’s because the biggest storm of the winter is now sweeping through the Midwest.

National Weather Service forecasters say rain will change to snow Tuesday night, bringing as much as 4 to 6 inches of snow to parts of eastern and central Ohio.

On Monday, the system moved east across the Dakotas and Minnesota, dropping up to a foot of snow in some areas and freezing rain in others. Chicago could see 10 inches of snow by the end of Tuesday.
