DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The snowfall that caused local schools and businesses to delay and even some to cancel this morning has ended but the below freezing temperatures will make untreated roads slick.

The snowfall began falling around 5:00 Wednesday morning when winter made another appearance in the Miami Valley.

The snow began south of Dayton but soon spread north and east. Local schools began delaying the start of classes due to the weather early Wednesday morning but many of those delays later changed to closings.

2 NEWS heard from many people that commute times were double and triple the normal duration. Roadways were slippery and cars slid off highways all over.

Eaton saw between 1.5 and 2 inches of snow on the ground while Miamisburg got about 1 inch of the white stuff.

Drivers should continue to use caution and allow extra time for their travels. The Ohio State Highway Patrol says you should drive slower, even below the speed limit and watch for disabled vehicles.
