COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio drivers are bracing for slick morning commutes as a winter storm blows through the state, leaving behind several inches of snow in some places.

Most of Ohio is under winter storm warnings or advisories through Wednesday morning. Forecasters said parts of southwest Ohio could get 6 inches of snow or more, and some schools and churches in the area canceled activities Tuesday night as the storm arrived.

Airlines canceled dozens of flights at the Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus airports late Tuesday and Wednesday, many of them to or from Chicago and other Midwest cities hit by the storm.

It was part of a system that started in Montana, struck the Dakotas and Minnesota on Monday and then barreled through Wisconsin and Illinois on its way toward Washington, D.C.
