3 more inches of snow fell in Toledo overnight, frigid temperatures to continue Monday

Three inches of snow fell overnight, and while the white stuff should be done for a while, keep your coats and hats close.

“Tonight we’re going to see lows around 0 to 5 degrees with wind chills down as low as -10, so it is going to be cold,” said Karen Clark, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Cleveland.

Look for partly cloudy skies on Monday with high temperatures around 15.

Though the thermometer was hovering around 12 today, a hint of sunshine, snow plows, and salt were combining to get roads in fairly good condition.

Fulton, Henry, and Sandusky counties also remained under a Level 1 this afternoon. Lucas County canceled its Level 1 snow emergency at 2 p.m.

A Level 1 snow emergency is for all roads and streets in a county including state, county, and township roads, and all city streets. This means that roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.

The blowing snow made driving treacherous in spots overnight.

An Ohio Highway Patrol cruiser that was parked on the left berm of I-475 southbound in Sylvania Township was struck in the rear by a car driven by Brittany Kralik, 17, of Rossford, that lost control just before 11 p.m.

Trooper Jacquelyn Layson, 42, who is assigned to the Toledo post, was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Miss Kralik and her two passengers, who all were wearing seatbelts, were not injured.

According to the Highway Patrol, Trooper Layson was pulled over with her emergency lights activated sitting behind a vehicle that had lost control and ended up on the median. She was waiting for a wrecker to arrive when her cruiser was struck from behind.
