Central Ohio roads are mostly clear, but people are still doing their best to stay indoors.

Temperatures fell below zero in many areas early Friday, with wind chills nearing -20 degrees.

After an expected warm-up into double digits Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will dive back down, with highs throughout the state from only 0 to 5 for Monday. And it’ll stay bitterly cold through most of next week.

Some counties are still cleaning up from the storm that blew through Thursday, leaving 4 to 6 inches of new snow.

But the northeast U.S. is getting the brunt, with around 2 feet of snow in some areas.
