CINCINNATI (AP) - City officials say they have 60 snow removal trucks, 14,000 tons of salt and 10,000 gallons of brine ready for a storm that could dump up to 10 inches of snow on Cincinnati.

The city braced itself Wednesday as steady rain and sleet was expected to transition to snow in the afternoon and evening. By Thursday, City Manager Harry Black says the city could experience “perhaps, the most significant winter weather of the season.”

City officials say road crews would be working 12-hour shifts beginning Wednesday morning.

Cincinnati Public Schools and dozens of businesses and churches closed Wednesday in anticipation of the snow and hazardous roads. More snow is forecast for Thursday. The Weather Service says total snowfall could range from 4 to 10 inches in the city.
