Snow falling once again in the Tri-State

Posted: Updated:
Highway 64 in Princeton Highway 64 in Princeton

Another round of snowfall for the Tri-State.    The big problem on the roads this morning is slide-offs and drivers going too fast for conditions. 

Meteorologist Byron Douglas is predicting one to two inches of snow before skies clear later this morning.

School closings include EVSC, Henderson County, Warrick County and East/North/South Gibson Counties.  Daviess County, Kentucky and Owensboro Public Schools are open this morning.  

Sheriff Eric Williams reports that roads in Vanderburgh County are relatively clear but he is warning drivers to watch out for black ice.  There have been several slide offs but no serious crashes.   Posey County dispatch is also reporting several slide offs this morning, but no injuries.

Roads in Gibson County are snow covered, especially Highway 41 past Toyota in Princeton.  The Princeton street superintendent says trucks have been out plowing and treating roadways.  They are working the main route of Brumfield, Spring and Main in Princeton.  Highway 64 in Princeton is also snow covered but conditions are improving.   Gibson County dispatch reports one slide off, but no one hurt.

In western Kentucky, Highway 60 in Owensboro is pretty clear.  The Kentucky Transportation Department is urging drivers to take it easy, drive slow and maintain a safe distance between vehicles.

In Illinois, Wayne County is reporting one slide off and White County city crews are out as well as state road crews.  Wabash and Edwards County have reported no slide offs.
