(FOX19) - It's another snow day for thousands of Tri-State kids and their parents.

Dangerous driving conditions and snow covered roads have prompted dozens of school districts, including Cincinnati Public for the second straight day, to cancel classes. For a complete list of closings, click here. For a list of cities and counties that are still under a snow emergency, click here.

Most areas of the Tri-State saw 4 to 6 inches of snow on Thursday. For a list of snowfall totals, click here. While the snow accumulation has ended, wind chill factors are in the single digits Friday. The colder temperatures meant the snow is not melting, and causing slush to refreeze in some spots, creating slick roads.

Most of area interstates are running smoothly; however there have been several reports of accidents and slick conditions.

Most road crews are concentrating on main highways first, then will focus on residential areas. For that reason, several side streets and residential roads remain slick. 

In Cincinnati, crews worked through the night pretreating and plowing primary roadways. However, icy patches remain on these streets. Roadways that have been treated and melted can easily refreeze and will create hazardous conditions.
