Many Tri-State residents woke up to cold temperatures, snow flurries and slick roads on Monday morning.

Some quick bursts of snow led to slick spots on untreated roads and overpasses. 

"It was horrible," said Erik King of West Chester. "Windy as heck and all over the place in (my) little Corolla. I've seen better road conditions really."

Road crews were out with salt trucks to treat the roads, but several accidents were still reported. Cincinnati road crews say they are monitoring and treating city streets where necessary and don't expect the same problems for Tuesday. 

"I anticipate travel to be safe. From what I'm hearing we shouldn't experience the weather we received (Monday) morning," said Cincinnati Roads and Traffic Department Superintendent, Jarrod Bolden. "Tuesday, traffic should pick up and I don't think it will be the same situation."

The snow did not cause any school closings or delays for the several school districts that went back to class after Christmas break.

Tuesday and Wednesday will also be cold, with temperatures in the low teens. By the end of the week, however, temperatures will be back into the upper 40's and low 50's.
