Snow and Slick Driving Possible Sunday

A special weather statement has been issued for snow Sunday on Cincinnati. I’m sure you’ve all seen it. Actually, I’m sure most haven’t seen it because few see special weather statements. Not a big storm but there may be slick driving at times, especially Sunday morning and later in the evening. It’s super bowl Sunday. I would have issued a winter weather advisory. Another complication is that pavement temperatures are cold but the air temperature will likely be above freezing for most of the event.
