11:43 pm
it was stuff from welfare and, you know, it was just -- it was a struggle all the time, all the time. >> sounds like it was kind of intimidating to go to school. >> yeah, it was. i couldn't have what the other kids had. >> reporter: his comments now five decades later are echoes of a painful past. >> even less work for a 16-year-old that had to quit school last year when he could no longer mend his jeans or deal with the insulting name river trash. >> this is 14 in mansfield, one of the lovely rehab old neighborhoods of old cincinnati. but before all the renovation, this is where eddie wilson spent a lot of his younger years, and growing up poor on these streets was one of the things that helped him make a very tough decision to drop out of high school. >> reporter: after living downtown, ad's family moved to dell high on the same street where he bought his home.

11:49 pm
because i know if he can do it, i can do it, and we just -- i strive to be like him, as strong as he is. >> reporter: in hillsborough, angela ingrim, local 12 news. >> justin also raises awareness and money for children's hospital by sharing his story. diligenceboro elementary will have another jump for justin event next monday. what a special young man. all right, we've got precipitation in some areas of the tristate and a lot of fog, it looks like. >> yeah, the fog will be here for quite some time. the dense fog advisory goes until 1:00 this morning. i should say tuesday morning. but we're still gonna be dealing with on and off soggy areas throughout the next couple of days. and this is what you're looking at. this some along ohio 32 near winchester in adams county and one of our photographers, matt, was out there, and he said that 32 was kind of slick because the fluffiness was building up on the roads and the parking lots there, as you can see.
11:50 pm
be along with the accumulation of snow in those parts of the tristate and that's where we're looking at picking up anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of snow. >> we're looking at accumulation, especially off to our eastern and southeastern corner of the viewing area. right now we are tracking a mixture of drizzle and some very ound cincinnati. and that's what we're seeing outside of the station here. we still have a mix of rain and light snowflakes through northern kentucky. off to our east is where our heaviest precipitation is from areas from southeastern clinton county, highland county, brown and adams county all the way down to brackin, mason and robertson county. we're all seeing for the most part snow with a little bit of rain mixing in. these areas that you see that dark blue color just like we see around people in west union, back in clermont county we're
11:51 pm
work in a little bit more from that rain/snow mix to some snow. we're gonna continue to see this mix transition to over all snow after midnight. you can see this shield of moisture, most from cincinnati eastward, with a little bit of flurry activity has been developing north and west. i think areas north and west in the local 12 viewing area, consersville, liberty and brookville, other than a few slick spots tomorrow morning, i don't think there will be major issues. where we will have issues and at the places under the woke up advisory. includes highland, brown, adams, brackin, mason counties. morning. areas shaded in gray is the dense fog advisory. this is probably the best camera you can actually see something
11:52 pm
down to quarter of a mile visibility. we're at 34 from the airport. 32 for hillsborough. 34 in georgetown. these numbers are playing a huge role in who's seeing what right now. my concern, as well, is once we fall a little further, those road conditions will get colder and i'm afraid anything that's wet may be slick, especially bridges and overpasses tomorrow morning. here's 2:00 for tuesday morning and this shield of precipitation going to continue to back off to the east. so by 4:00 we're almost done with the precip. by 5:00, we may see a couple of lingering snowshowers from hillsborough down to west union and then we're done. we see cloudy conditions pretty much all of tuesday. a clipper-like system just to the south of and us that may climb a western county tomorrow afternoon which may prompt a spotty chance for shower or snowshower but i don't think it's gonna cause any additional problems because temperatures are going to be topping out in the mid-30s tomorrow.
11:53 pm
the white shade, 1 inch or less in areas north and west. i really don't think we're going to see any accumulation at all. and again the snow that has been talking in places like highland county, a lot of it has been the melting on contact with the ground but we will see light accumulations tomorrow morning. 37 on wednesday after starting off in the 20s. 40s by thursday, which is actually normal for this time of year and then we'll be pretty breezy on friday with a chance of a few rainshowers but we won't care because temperatures will be close to 60 friday, saturday and even into the 50s for sunday and we should see a little bit of sun for this weekend, so much better than the past weekend.
