The National Weather Service placed the Warning from Noon Sunday through 7am Monday (1/16-17/22).

Heavy snow is expected with total snow accumulations of 3 to 6
inches, with locally higher amounts. Some brief mixing with
sleet or freezing rain is also possible, with little to no ice
accumulation expected. The counties impacted are Fairfield, Ross, Pickaway, Hocking, Adams, Pike, Scioto and Athens counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory is listed for Fayette, Highland, Clinton and Brown counties, which are expecting 2-4 inches of snow with some brief mixing with sleet or freezing rain also possible. Little to no ice accumulation expected.

Northeast Kentucky and West Virginia counties will also be impacted by this storm, which could also produce ice storms in the Carolinas and Virginia along the I-95 corridor, which was hammered by heavy snow two weeks ago.

This could change as the storm moves closer to our region.
