Locally heavier amounts are possible in the watch region, which also includes Adams, Huntington, Wabash and Wells counties in Indiana and Van Wert County, Ohio, the weather service said.
It said an area that includes Mercer County, Ohio, may receive 8 to 12 inches of snow, along with a trace of ice.
