MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) — The snow has ended around the Miami Valley but slick road conditions continue for the rest of the morning. Much of the area picked up 2 to 4 inches of snow.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base said Wednesday the base is closed and employees are excused from duty except for those designated “base essential”.

Logan County and Preble County are under a Level 1 Snow Emergency which means roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Caution should be used when driving. Montgomery County is also under a Level 1 Snow Emergency.

Authorities say drivers should expect difficult travel conditions in all areas under the advisory or warning. Visibility could be reduced at times.

Several schools in the Miami Valley are operating on delays, with several others closed. Click here to see the full list of delays and closings.
