heavy rain. temperatures drop behind the front. by 6:00 and 7:00 tomorrow morning, we transition to snow, a brief period of moderate to heavy snow. not going to be too concerned with the roadways because they'll be quite wet and above freezing temperatures today will help that out. but for grassy surfaces and elevated surfaces this snow will likely collect and so we're talking a covering to maybe an inch tomorrow morning with snow showers coming down to start off. they're not long. by 10:00, 11:00, we're quiet. looks like for the afternoon, we bring back a touch of sunshine late for sunday. today, 56 for the high. cloudy with the rain arriving into the evening. for the overnight forecast, temperatures will be sitting in the upper 50s -- 50 to upper 40s as we head towards midnight. the rain will be increasing in coverage. heavy rainfall to start the overnight. then temperatures start to fall back. we'll be near freezing by 6:00 a.m. when we transition to snow showers, a couple of snow showers tomorrow morning.

the year before that was then. that's kind of what i'm getting back. moment. jonathan: did you catch the nervous shake? i'm glad he's starting. we're going to win. we've got to beat the steelers doing it. they've officially ruled out one of their weapons as well, which doesn't hurt. deangelo williams. run? he had 900 yards in the regular season and is a playoff veteran. injury. a.j. mccarron played against the steelers last month. that was the same game andy dalton was injured in. our first drive, down by the goal line. mccarron had two touchdown passes in that game but also two interceptions. he is, of course, hoping to avoid those mistakes tonight. some controversy before tonight's game, centering around a local radio station. 700 wlw radio is taking a lot of heat for a fake barng warning aimed at
it tells women to use extreme caution, especially if heavily consuming alcohol in the downtown area. goes on to say he poses the greatest theft to 18 reat to 18 to 40-year-olds. the spoof is against sexual allegations against the former miami redhawk. >> one in three women, one in six men have experienced rape or sexual abuse. that, in and of itself, is not something i think is worth joking about. jonathan: we reached out to the radio station for a comment but haven't got an response. by the way, our station, wlwt, news 5, not associated with wlw radio. the party's started downtown for football fans. orange and black, black and gold, either way, it means a lot of green for business owners. wlwt news 5's emily wood has the football fever going on down at the banks. reporter: at the holy grail, the

more than 65,000 fans will pack out game. go bengals. >> let us see your bengals spirit. upload a photo to the u local section at the wlwt app. there are our gals. we'll add it to our who-dey slide show. new details this morning about a police cruiser crash in college hill. a cincinnati police officer lost control around 8:00 last night in a single car crash. looks like that was the car. the cruiser went off of hamilton avenue and hit a pole. the police officer was not seriously hurt. no word on what caused the officer to lose control. fellow firefighters are organizing a fundraiser for the family of fallen hamilton firefighter patrick wolterman. the fundraiser is january 23 from 5:00 to 11:00 at the pub in rookwood. part of the sales that night will be donated to the wolterman fund at first financial bank.
the wait is almost over for those hoping to become a millionaire. the record breaking powerball jackpot has now reached $800 million. that's a lot of money. it could reach $1 billion before the drawing with the fever. your odds of winning are the same whether you buy one ticket or 50 tickets. that is, 292 million-to-1. but that wet blanket reality isn't stopping powerball dreamers, because they say somewhere, some day, someone will win. >> can you imagine the friends i'd have? that's the whole thing right there. once people know you won all that money, that's when they come around you. i have to take care of my family. i know that. jonathan: can't buy you love. well, if you win, and you want all the money right now, the lump sum would be $496 million after you paid your taxes like a responsible sit citizen, you'd have

jonathan: welcome back. new video emerging of a philadelphia officer ambushed in an isis inspired attacks. police say it was an attempted assassination of officer jesse hartnett, sitting in his police cruiser when a man opened fire. the attacker continued shooting as he got closer. this is tough to watch, frankly. eventually, he shot inside the driver window. he unloaded 11 shots. officer hartnett somehow survived, even getting out of his car and returning fire, though he'd been hit three times at that point. officer hartnett is expected to survive. police say suspect edward archer pledges his allegiance to the islamic state and was called by

jennifer: it's a quiet and mild saturday morning. look at the satellite and radar, a couple of showers late for friday evening to start the overnight. since then, the cloud cover. more to arrive this afternoon. i don't think we see much in the way of sun today, but the first half of the day is mainly the cloud cover. the second half, when the more widespread rain will arrive. on citycam, cloudy skies. the pavement is damp in spots. temperatures mild at 49, a south wind at 10. the humidity is high. for temperatures, we have the mild and moist air coming in from the south with the south breeze. so we have a mild start to the weekend, but a big contrast tomorrow. a cold front is diving through the plains and will arrive tonight, have a big impact on sunday's forecast. that's the most noticeable change in the forecast. note current temperatures across the dakotas in single digits. wind chills are 15 to 20 below zero and diving into our direction. we're going to be talking wind chills tomorrow in the late afternoon, dropping back into
for what it's going to feel like by sunday late afternoon to evening. a big drop back. for today, though, highs make it back into the 50s, even with the cloud cover. steadier rain is still comfortably to the southwest. not going to arrive for us until some scattered showers probably past 4:00 and 5:00 this afternoon. if you're tailgating, i expect to see a couple of showers, a mild afternoon. then for the evening, more widespread rain starts to arrive. we'll pick up the rainfall coverage during the overnight. some of that rain may be briefly heavy at times. the cold front comes in past 4:00 tomorrow morning when we transition to some wet snow showers early in the morning. now, i don't think it's a big problem for area roadways, not to say some slick spots on bridges and overpasses, maybe some visibility concerns at times with some of the more robust snow showers that come down. most of this will be grassy surfaces, elevated surfaces, up to a slushy one inch of snow tomorrow morning. as we head past 8:00 and 9:00, we quiet down. afternoon flurries will be
it does get active this weekend. it's a quiet start this morning. but it starts off as rain. then tonight and tomorrow we transition to some snow and a big drop in temperatures. overnight, the temperatures will be in the upper 40s as we head toward midnight. that will be high temperatures for tomorrow. it's all rain today and to start overnight, 2:00, 4:00, by 6:00 a.m., we're looking at the transition to snow. snow showers, wet snow showers and temperatures dropping back to the freezing mark. then sunday afternoon, 23 degrees at 5:00 p.m. that wind chill, upper single digits to low teens. it will be windy through the day tomorrow as we usher in the cold air. then the cold air sticks around next week. highs in the 20s and 30s. looks like tuesday, more snow showers. tomorrow morning could very likely be our first measurable snowfall for right season. we need a tenth of an inch. if we don't get it tomorrow, another potential with scattered light snow showers tuesday.

jonathan: welcome back. now to commitment 2016. the ohio republican party formally endorsed that man, our governor, john kasich and his run for the white house. the apart's governing body made its endorsement yesterday. public policy polling shows kasich with 11% support in new hampshire. considering the field, that's not bad, he's tied for third in chris kristy. donald trump remains the republican frontrunner nationwide, but not in iowa, apparently. presidential candidate donald trump held a rally in south carolina and is being called out for a mistake he made. the republican frontrunner discussed his stance on the iraq
trump says he was against the war, but that democratic candidate hillary clinton and gop rival rand paul voted yet -- yes for it, except that rand paul wasn't there at the time. he was elected to office in 2010. the vote happened in 2002. cincinnati mayor john cranley has vetoed the tax budget for the 2017 fiscal year that would have increased taxes. he based the decision off the failure of the november parks levy, saying voters made it clear they oppose any tax increases, saying the current rates are enough to meet the taxes. city council approved the measure wednesday night. three were against it, six for it. >> having not done that, that we might come up short. so the idea is better that we come up just a little bit over than that we come up short. what we pass is the
i felt good doing that. jonathan: in a statement, yvette simpson who voted yes, says she stands by the administration's tax, saying, this measure is prudent to make sure we don't collect less than $28.9 million. still a lot more ahead on news 5 today, including speed, air, dirt and danger. sounds like a recipe for fun, doesn't it? what off-road motorcyclists at this weekend's arena cross say will be the most challenging thing about the course. your live look outside. citycam 5. green lights at the radisson. warmer out there this morning. i have a furrowed brow from the meteorologist. what color do you want them? jennifer: we'll change those to red. jonathan: look for a red hue

part in the seven hills race will be before a judge this morning. thomas stidham was arrested friday morning after being tased twice. he hit 57-year-old kathy chatfield last month near the intersection of dorchester avenue and reading road. that's right around the corner from our station. he is then accused of remeefg the license plate from the car he was driving before running from the scene. chatfield's death devastated cincinnati's running community and her family. >> they need some justice and closure. and i think mr. stidham being arrested will be the first step in bringing closure to the family. jonathan: in all, stidham faces five counts connected to chatfield's death, including aggravated vehicular homicide. he also faces an unrelated domestic violence charge, a case in which a woman says he slapped, choked and head butted her, then punched holes in her walls and kicked in her doors. excitement building for bengals fans.

it's not going to be too difficult to climb today to a high of around 56 degrees when you start off at 49. we have mild air to start the weekend. look at what's heading our way. we're not going to see these temperatures late for the weekend, single digits, but this cold air will moderate and dive into the ohio river valley tomorrow. the cold front arrive the tonight. a big change in the weekend forecast. wind chills across the dakotas near 15 below zero. we're talking late weekend wind chills in the single digits. sop quite a drop back expected over the next 36 hours. here's the satellite and radar with our clouds building in, but the rain is still to the southwest and that low pressure is still in the development stage. as it arrives for later today, the leading edge, showers past 4:00 and 5:00. for tailgaters, we have scattered showers out there, but temperatures in the 50s. past 9:00 and 10:00, here comes more widespread rain showers, some of it a touch heavy during the game.
rainfall, everybody getting wet. the cold front not arriving until after midnight. cold air transitioning in past 6:00 and 7:00 tomorrow morning with snow showers on the back side. we're still going to have a pretty good axis of moisture overhead. some of the snow showers, air temperatures will be 33 or 34 degrees. so it's not going to cause a big problem on roadways with the exception of isolated bridges and overpasses, but may see dropback in visibility with a burst of snow, wet snow coming down tomorrow morning. elevated surfaces, a better potential for accumulation, a half inch, maybe an isolated one inch. better chance the eastern half of the tri-state. not too much in terms of accumulation. anything more than a tenth of an inch at the international airport would be the first measurable snowfall. 56 for the high today. mainly the cloud cover. then we'll see rain showers overnight. rain expected to increase towards midnight. temperatures in the mid forties. the front comes through. we drop back into the low 30s.
snow showers past 6:00 tomorrow morning until 9:00 or 10:00. tomorrow afternoon, by 5:00 p.m., the temperatures has dropped off with a strong wind. we'll be at 23 degrees. a wind chill getting ready to drop off into the single digits. quite a drop back for sunday. the cold air sticks around next week. if we don't get measurable snowfall at the airport tomorrow, we'll have another chance for snow showers tuesday with the high only around 30 degrees. now here's your saturday morning sports . george: george and zach, back @ with more blitz on a saturday morning. @ basketballs bouncing on both sides of the river last night. @ year in and year out, there are teams to be reckoned with @ in northern kentucky. @ zach: one of those teams would be colonels of covington catholic. last night, the colonels were getting after it. george : we go t o hebro n and conner high school on cougar path. colonelers with the bucket . credit j.j.
