( Tri-State ) Overnight snow has slowed the morning commute across our area. The extremely cold temperature has made the salt that is being put down not as effective. The gusty winds are causing problems as well, blowing the light snow back across roads that have already been treated causing them to refreeze.

Police responded to numerous reports of cars sliding off roads and into guardrails, ditches and other vehicles. There are no reports of any serious crashes or injuries.
From the city of Cincinnati:
City crews are responding to a bout of snow that begin passing through the area earlier this evening.
Cold temperatures and quickly falling snow has resulted in slick driving conditions on many area roadways.
Throughout the evening, crews will focus on treating primary roadways and main thoroughfares. Residential roadways will begin to receive treatment once precipitation has subsided and once hazardous conditions on primary roads have been improved.
The primary focus tonight will be on making roadways as safe as possible for the morning commute.
Anyone on area roadways this evening should use extreme caution as roads are slick and hazardous.
If possible, plan for extra travel time for any early morning travel.
As with any winter weather event, drive smart and stay safe.
