Snow Closes Schools and Slows the Morning Commute in the TriState

Oak Hills....Lebanon...Madison....New Miami....Southwest....Springboro...Three Rivers and West Clermont are all among a list of school districts across the Tristate that are now closed today because of the snow that is falling. Conditions deteriorated very quickly this morning in many area's leading superintendents who initially were going to operate on a delay to ultimately decide that it was better just to close. Hamilton County sheriff Jim Neal issued a level one snow emergency urging people to use caution while driving because of hazardous conditions. Road crews have been out across the area but in some spots the snow came down too quickly for them to keep up.

The heaviest snow totals we have heard so far, about an inch and a half on the ground in Cheviot.
