Licking and Union counties were also under Level 1 snow emergencies Monday morning.
There are three levels of snow emergencies, according to the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather website. A Level 1 snow emergency means that roads are icy and there is some blowing or drifting snow into roadways.
The National Weather Service cautioned drivers heading out Sunday afternoon as roadways could remain slick and blowing snow could lead to lower visibility in some areas.
