Issued: 9:47 PM EST Jan. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Strong winter storm impacting the Ohio Valley through tonight...

near blizzard conditions, with visibilities near zero at times.

Travel conditions will quickly deteriorate, becoming hazardous
and potentially dangerous. Flash freezing will be possible on some
roads, with blowing and drifting snow causing brief whiteout
