Icy Roads And School Closings Be careful If You Have To Drive
CINCINNATI (FOX19) – Snowy roads across Cincinnati combined with bitterly cold temperatures are making for an icy morning commute.
Overnight snow has ended, leaving 1-2 inches across the Tri-State. It’s bitterly cold with 20 degrees at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and feel-like temps in the teens.
Several schools are on delays or closed.

The snow on area roadways is slicker than Clark Griswald’s non-chloric, silicon-based kitchen lubricant.
Unless you need to travel for an emergency, please stay home until the roadways are treated.

Cincinnati police are asking drivers to delay head out, tweeting “side streets are extremely slick. If you can delay your travel until after the sun and salt melts the snow you might just avoid crashing your car.”
Several main roads and hills in Cincinnati are still snow covered and icy including Columbia Parkway, Sycamore and McMillan.
The Clifton area in particular is icy, and now there is a 7-vehicle crash on Queen City Avenue
