( Cincinnati ) - Road crews have been prepping city streets for the winter storm that's expected to start Monday evening. New members of the staff are set to hit the roads at 7pm to continue pretreating. They'll work through the night to make sure roads stay passable for Tuesday's morning commute.

Unlike the last time when COVID negatively affected the number of drivers available in Cincinnati, this time the Department of Public Services says they'll adjust their staffing and operational plans based on weather conditions.

WCPO 9 Meteorologist Sherry Hughes says to expect several inches of accumulating snow overnight. "It's going to make for some slippery road conditions, no doubt. Especially secondary roads, side streets, and such," Hughes said.
