Athens City and Nelsonville-York Schools were operating on a two-hour delay schedule Monday morning as some rural roads made traveling difficult for students and staff.

The decision for Athens came Sunday night as the school system evaluated the condition of road surfaces in the service area.

Single-digit temperatures were experienced throughout Southeast Ohio Monday morning though a warming trend is expected for the area on Tuesday.

Fairfield, Hocking, Perry, Pickaway and Ross Counties remained under a level one snow emergency from the lingering effects of snow that rolled through the area during the weekend.

Athens and Counties south of Columbus should remain snow-free through the day but a winter weather advisory was issued for counties north of that line calling for as much as four additional inches of snow.

The warming trend for Southeast Ohio could bring temperatures into the high 50s and low 60s by Thursday.
