It looks like 1" to 2" of snow falling along the I-71 corridor and most of it coming down between 5am and 7am. That is not a great amount but two factors make it more of an issue than 1" to 2" of snow would normally be. First, it is well below freezing so this snow will be a dry snow and it will stick especially when traffic runs over it then it re-freezes. So rural roads and residential streets will be particularly slick. Second, is timing. It is going to fall during the morning commute and that means as it falls it will slick up until salt works. In un-treated areas it could be slippery for several hours.
For the average Cincinnati area snow 1" of water makes between 11" and 12" of snow. In this case because the temperature is cold look for 1" of water to make about 18" of snow. So if we get about 0.06" of liquid equivalent moisture we get the 1' to 2" of snow.
