Most of Ohio was under winter storm warnings or advisories through this morning.
Sleet began falling early Tuesday afternoon as temperatures hovered around freezing. Sleet turned into snow with consistent heavy snow falling by 8 p.m.
“The storm came in a little later than anticipated but once it got going, we saw sleet in many areas,” Emergency Management Director Rick McCoy said. “The east side of Van Wert County saw quite a bit of ice. An inch and a half of snow fell by 9 o’clock Tuesday night. This storm was putting down heavy snow fall rates at this point.”
