Central Ohio and Columbus weather forecast as snow moves in

Max Leu, from downtown Columbus, goes for a run in the snow Sunday afternoon in Columbus' Topiary Park. A winter weather advisory has been issued for the Columbus area through the lunch hour Wednesday.

Central Ohio is bracing for a fresh wallop of snow only days after another winter storm last weekend dropped a few inches of snow around the Columbus area.

Here’s what you need to know about the winter storm, its timing and impact:

What is a winter weather advisory?

Central Ohio is under a winter weather advisory from midnight until 1 p.m. Wednesday. A winter weather advisory is issued whenever one or more of the following is expected: Snow of 3 to 5 inches in 12 hours, sleet accumulation up to 1/4 inch, freezing rain in combination with sleet and/or snow, or blowing snow. 

How much snow is Columbus getting?

Between two to four inches of snow is expected to fall between midnight Tuesday and 1 p.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. Much of central Ohio, including Franklin County, will be under a winter weather advisory during those hours, with snow possibly changing to sleet or an icy drizzle mid- to late-morning.

The National Weather Service is now also warning about the possibility of gusting winds on Wednesday afternoon and evening, with wind speeds possibly reaching up to 32 miles per hour.
