Snow began to taper off in Franklin County by 5 a.m. The National Weather Service saw reports of up to three inches of snow in Franklin County early Monday, but totals above half a foot were reported in eastern Ohio.
Travel will remain "tricky" in parts of the region on Monday, said Logan Clark, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Mixed precipitation in the form of sleet and freezing rain began to fall in Franklin County between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday. After that, beginning around 6 p.m., snow began to cover the region.
The heaviest accumulation occurred between 6 p.m. and midnight, after which things began to taper off, with "scattered snow showers on the back end" that could add a few tenths of an inch through Monday morning, Clark said.
