Winter isn't quite over for northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan residents as another round of snow is expected to fall on the area.
According to Meteorologist Joe Thompson things will start off with rain on Tuesday night and then switch to a wintry mix after midnight.
Thompson adds that mix may also include a few areas of freezing rain, forming a thin layer of ice on untreated roads.
That will be in addition to the 6 to 10 inches of snow expected to fall, beginning between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., making for a messy Wednesday morning commute.
The situation has government and school officials on high alert as they prepare to issue any needed school closings, delays or snow emergencies.
Perrysburg School's Superintendent Tom Hosler said, "Making decision when there is no snow on ground. Relying on forecast. Getting students home safely is a concern based on timing."
By 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Danbury Schools had already made the decision to cancel classes on Wednesday.
The winter has been especially long and cold in the state, with some cities seeing record snowfall and cold temperatures.
