WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY issued for much of Central Ohio today until Monday morning. The leading edge of the storm system is still to our west, but will arrive in Central Ohio late this morning and last through tonight. Snow is expected for Northern Ohio with Southern Ohio seeing rain then transitioning over to snow briefly Sunday night. According the latest forecast models, the I-70 corridor will be the dividing line between the rain and snow.

***There will be a dramatic cut-off of high snow accumulations to much lower snowfall totals due to the rain.***

Snowfall totals will be 2"-4" along the I-70 corridor. Higher totals for Northern Ohio and less for Southern Ohio.

Stay tuned to the forecast on WSYX ABC 6 and WTTE FOX 28 for any tweaks to the forecast as the storm system nears Central Ohio.

City Forces Homeowner out of House, After She was Found Buried in Trash

COLUMBUS (Lisa Rantala/Dawn Faugl) -- The city issued an emergency vacate order on a Howey Road home after firefighters found the homeowner inside, buried in trash.
According to court documents, firefighters went to the home in May on a report of a person who was down and couldn’t get up. When the crew arrived, they said they only saw trash coming out the door, and no one was in sight.

They called for the homeowner and said they found her six inches away “buried in trash and belongings by the front of her refrigerator.” They say it took nearly 40 minutes to “dig her out.”
Code enforcement officers then went to the home last week, forcing the homeowner out. Officers took the woman to Grant Medical Center, and posted “vacate” signs around her home, calling it unliveable.
