TOLEDO: Plummeting temperatures are turning snow-covered roads into an icy mess in northern Ohio and prompted some schools around the state to cancel Tuesday’s classes well in advance.
Parts of a few major routes in the Toledo area near the Michigan state line were shut down Monday because of the icy conditions. Several counties in northern Ohio told all drivers except emergency workers to stay off the roads.
The blast of dangerously cold weather came as Toledo and northwest Ohio were digging out from a storm that dumped more than 8 inches of snow on the area.
Many Ohio schools and some universities closed on Monday. Columbus city schools and the University of Toledo were among those that put out early notices canceling Tuesday’s classes, too.
