but it is not sticking to the ground just yet. it could be sticking to your back deck. i saw a dusting on my back deck. the dog had some dusting on him after he came inside after his morning trip outside. we do have those snow showers falling across much of ohio this morning. this is more in the way of flurries through portions of kentucky. let' s start in butler. you can see from trenton to middletown, right there as you move towards monroe, we can see some snow showers. the same thing for fairfield. everybody can see the snow, but it is not exactly sticking. southern portions of brown county can also see this snow. this snow is not sticking at the moment. our temperatures are currently right around freezing. this is the air temperature.

down like this, i would be concerned about road conditions for the morning commute. it would really be sticking to the road and beginning to pile up, but luckily, we had those warmer temperatures over the past couple days. we have warmer road surface temperatures and things will be good for the morning commute. one of the things you can notice is you might have to flip on the windshield whiper. the snow may stick to the car more than the roads. if you run into any problems in your area, please let us know. we will come check them out. lisa: thank you, andrew. as the roads begin to fill up with commuters, we are watching for the pockets of snow. mark: dan griffin is live now with the latest conditions. dan: good morning. we are here along kenwood road.
flurries blowing this way. we have seen a little bit of that pick up. i am going to step out of the shot here. the roads here this morning are pretty much just wet. some of the sign areas are picking up a touch of snow. we are talking mulchy, muddy areas. everyone else seems to be pretty much wet. the big factor today seems to be the wind. if you are going to be walking to work or school, be prepared to bundle up. wear a scarf so you can stay warm. for now, it is pretty much just wet. we' re live here in blue ash. mark: thank you, dan. the deadly storms have brought havoc on several states. millions were threatened along the east coast. miriah turner is that the life alert desk now. good morning.

the coach says they have bigger fish to fry . >> it was going to take a monumental effort from our team for 40 minutes. i think that is what we gave. i am proud of our team. we have those thoughts as players and coaches, you guys have never beaten villanova. the average margin of victory is yada yada. our team was able to struggle that stuff off and compete against the best team in our again, if we were 14-14 we would probably storm the corut -- storm the court. i think it would be out of line my two daughters did. maybe they are out of line. reporter: e dropped of a moment like this -- he said he dreamt of a moment like this
mark: a championship kind of night there. it was a championship kind of day at training yesterday. lou pennell a is back with the reds. lou in a reds uniform for the first time since 1992. he leds the reds to the world series title in 1990. he managed them for three years. and what a three years it was. a fight with dibble. things the fans like to remember, but what he would like to forget. >> i wish i had not done those things. tom e , truthfully, they are somewhat embarrassing as i have gotten older. but listen, film does not lie. but if

lisa: all of the xavier fans probably don' t care if it is snowing. they probably feel like they are in hawaii. randi: i bet some people are still pretty excited. if you take a look at the wlwt radar, if you were hoping for somw snow to do later classes, sorry. in most places, the weather has been warm recently. the snow is melting away as it hits the ground. we are taking a look at some of the areas with the more intense snowfall. that is an catered -- that is indicated by the deeper blue. that is the middletown area, over toward mason. again, it is not really sticking, accept to the grass. those are the areas where you will see accumulation. down south closer to the ohio river. we can see some snow showers
right along 68 as well. as we take a look at the wide view, we are with this snow we pattern throughout the day. we have off and on snow showers through the evening commute. that fades away after sunset tonight. temperatures right now are a degree or so above freezing. i would expect not a lot is going to stick. it will look impressive at times, part of that due to the strong winds. you are going to see wind driven snow, but not a lot the cumulative. outside right now it is 33 degrees with winds out of the west at 18 miles per hour. it feels like 22. at 8:00 a.m., we have light snow and windy conditions. the same thing at lunchtime. around lunchtime we have flurries and snow showers. the futurecast shows a break for us late morning into the early
in the mid afternoon. temperatures by 3:00 or 4:00 will be 35-37 degrees. it looks like snow for ohio, it could be warm enough for us to see a mix with some rain south of the river. as we head into the evening commute, snow showers continue through portions of ohio. the most likely places to see those continued bands of snow will be a long and north of the ohio river. here is our snowfall potential. not exactly a big one for us. some spots are pushing one inch, but most of us will have less. that has to do with the melting occurring right now. or a six is our high today with a strong winds. tonight we are dipping down to 25. tomorrow will be a little breezy with 10-15 mile per hour winds. a stray flurry could be possible. and then we approach the weekend.
sunny and next week, temperatures will be warm enough that we will be talking rain showers, instead of snow. lisa: health officials say three pregnant women have tested positive for the zika virus in florida. a news release says all three cases are believed to be travel related. officials are not identifying the counties where the pregnant women for diagnosed. -- pregnant women were diagnosed . a total of 32 cases have been reported in that state. mark: police are warning students and staff regarding safety precautions. miriah turner is here to tell us more about the message. miriah: right now police are limiting specifics about the attack. students got an e-mail this past sunday saying a sexual offense happened around 3:00 a.m. february 5 in an academic building. the victim is a student, but they don'
