Several areas around Central Ohio experienced winter weather Thursday morning.

As of 6 a.m., Muskingum County and Hocking County were under a Level One Snow Emergency as a result of the incoming snow and freezing temperatures.

Meteorologist Andrew Buck Michael said Central Ohioans can expect another cold and blustery day with spotty light snow.

"Not expecting much in the way of accumulation today, but Northern and Eastern Ohio could see some light accumulations later today," said Michael. "A few flurries tonight and Friday with a mix of clear skies and clouds. More sun Saturday and cool temps."

The weather caused issues for drivers. Several accidents were reported on SR-315 by 6:15 a.m.
