14 for hamilton, mason. 11 over in harrison. most areas will drop another three or four degrees and then level out. maybe climb a couple degrees towards morning. an inch or two of snow across the area appeared the farther north you are of the ohio river, closer to one in spirit farther south and west of metro cincy, maybe a little heavier snow. in general, an inch or two is what we expecting. a winter weather advisory in effect for the area, and that is mainly because we will have some snow-covered roads. it mainly your secondary streets, neighborhood roadways near the interstate, depending upon how heavy the snow comes down during the morning commute, there could be/on the main thoroughfares. i think road crews will be able to keep up with of that. it will be the secondary roads
