Sunday’s weather system has dropped heavier snowfall totals than were forecast throughout Cincinnati’s Tri-State area, making imperative for residents to practice safe driving behaviors. The storm has prompted several counties to issue snow emergencies and travel advisories as road conditions deteriorated.
The following serves as a warning system to alert residents and drivers and that bad weather could make it unsafe to travel:
