Tips for driving in snow and ice.
We could again on Tuesday see quick bursts of heavy snow that could result in whiteout conditions and slick roads.
Similar snow squalls wreaked havoc on the roads Thursday. Two people were killed in a chain-reaction crash in West Chester Township and there were closures and crashes on all the major local highways.
Intense snow squalls will be possible after 10 a.m. Tuesday morning into the evening, according to a hazardous weather outlook from the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Just before 10 a.m., the National Weather Service said snow showers were moving into Greater Cincinnati and will impact areas along and west of Intertate 75.
More developments are expected in the afternoon.
Snow squalls can cause rapid changes in visibility and hazardous driving conditions even though accumulations will be under an inch.

Here are safety tips from the National Weather Service:
- Don’t slam on the brakes. This is what causes those chain-reaction crashes.
- So that means you need to drive slowly. Oh, and turn on your headlights and keep them on. Visibility and road conditions change quickly during a snow squall.
- Remain alert. And, well, consider just not driving if you can.
