Several crashes were reported after midnight as a result of the snow.

A jackknifed truck caused lengthy delays on northbound Interstate 71/75 by blocking the ramp to I-275 most of the morning. The wreck finally cleared just before 11 a.m.

Several crashes were reported Thursday morning in the city of Cincinnati but none were serious, police say.

Ice was reported on Whitfield Street between Terrace and Dixmyth avenues, prompting officers to divert traffic in the area until further notice.

Earlier Thursday in Northern Kentucky, a vehicle slid off the ramp from southbound Interstate 71/75 to Kyles Lane, according to Kenton County dispatch. No one was hurt, but the ramp closed until road crews could treat it.

Other crashes or slick roads also closed I-471 at I-275 in Campbell County and I-75 near the I-71 split in Boone County, dispatchers there say.

Looking ahead to next week, a nice warming trend will push temperatures into the 50s by Thursday and Friday.
