COLUMBUS: Another big snowstorm messed up the first morning commute of 2014 for lots of Ohio motorists.
Accidents and delays were reported as snow that began falling before dawn covered the roads as many commuters returned to work Thursday after the holidays. Some schools that were scheduled to be back in session after the holiday break were delayed or closed.
Accumulations ranging from 4 to 6 inches are expected across the state as the snow tapers off this afternoon and the storm moves east. Winter weather warnings or advisories have been posted for most of Ohio.
The storm is expected to bring heavy snow, strong winds and bitter temperatures to much of the northeast later Thursday.
