This evening into tomorrow morning, much of Ohio will be impacted by a winter storm bringing with it a range of wintry precipitation, from heavy accumulations of snow in some parts of the state, to a mixture of rain, snow and ice in other regions. Walking and driving conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly beginning this afternoon in most parts of our state. Ice and snow accumulations could also lead to power outages.
