Moderate to heavy snow has fallen across Darke County on top of already treacherous and ice covered roadways. Several inches of snow has fallen across the county with 1-2 additional inches possible during the afternoon and evening afternoons. Temperatures will fall this evening increasing the risk of roads refreezing. Extreme caution should be used if driving, particularly on secondary roadways.
