CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Watch for slick, icy spots on roads from freezing drizzle and refreeze after weekend snow.

The drizzle is falling south and along the Ohio River.

A thin glaze of ice or less may form on roads and other surfaces as thermometers dip into the low 20s.

Several school districts are operating on delays including Mount Healthy City Schools and Finneytown Local Schools.

Northbound Interstate 71 was briefly shut down due to a crash on the ramp from ice, a Boone County dispatcher said.

The ramp onto I-75 reopened shortly after the crash was reported about 5:30 a.m.

Later, skies will be cloudy and then gradually sunny.

The high will only top out in the upper 20s.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and noticeably colder with lows falling to around 17.

For now, we should stay dry through Wednesday night.

Rain will return to the forecast Thursday.

We could see our next chance of snow, mixing with the rain, by Friday night and into Saturday, changing to all snow by Saturday night as the low drops to 21.
