As spotty ice and rain is expected across the Tri-State and wide spread snow has passed, Adams County cancelled its Level 2 snow emergency.
Pendleton County in Northern Kentucky has issued a Level 1 advisory.
There are three levels of snow emergencies. While there may be slight variations from one community to the next, these are the general definitions:
LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy.Drive carefully. Motorists must move cars from snow emergency routes.
LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.
LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one else should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
