those are air temperatures. wind chills are actually low to mid 20s in spots. some of our weather bug network locations feels like 19 in butler, county. 23 in bethel and 21 in lebanon. so a colder start this morning. especially coming out of the nice temperatures from last week. but we will, in time, get out of the cold spell and have those temperatures be warming up as we head into the week for next week. 28 right now. a wind chill of 21. north wind at 7 miles an hour. temperatures this afternoon will be like yesterday afternoon, but we'll have a lot more sunshine with them. partly cloudy skies through the stretch today as we warm up. we stay about ten degrees below average. highs today in the mid 40s under scattered clouds. our system to the west will sink into southern kentucky. cloud cover in ohio, not quite going to make it in. we end up with just our surface wind out of the north, allowing the temperatures to stay below average today. temperatures in the mid 40s this afternoon. the north wind persisting tonight and to start our monday. so we haven't broken free of
highs on monday will be in the upper 40s. we'll have scattered clouds around tomorrow. another quiet day expected. but you want to note the warm front that's building out across the plains. it's not going to have a big impact on us for monday quite yet. some of us may in the southwest counties tap up to around 50 for a high tomorrow. but it's going to be tuesday, that warm air will invade the ohio river valley and we're talking temperatures warming from monday to tuesday, about a 15 degree jump in high temperatures. today, we're at 44. another cool day. mostly sunny skies in the morning. partly cloudy for the afternoon. it will be a chilly start tomorrow morning. the coats, a couple of jackets possible this morning. keep them out for tomorrow morning as well. then north wind will start to switch out of the west tomorrow afternoon. but we're still on the cooler side. 48 for monday and partly cloudy, a dry day. dry for most of the week. the warmer, mild days will be tuesday, wednesday, thursday. a nice stretch with temperatures above average. it comes to an end thursday when a cold front arrives.

and do what they say. elise: with such a quick turnaround between games and an unfamiliarity with the upcoming opponent, xavier uses a simple strategy. each assistant coach is assigned to one team and they make sure not to overload the players with information. >> wisconsin is the same way from what i understand. so this time of the year, the players have heard so much. it's been a long year. you don't want to make it any longer. you want to keep their attention. >> at the end of the day, it's about playing hard and getting after it and coming out with more intensity and energy. elise: wisconsin likes to play the classic, big ten style of basketball. they like to be physically tough from start to finish. that won't be a problem for the musketeers. they love playing physical basketball. just one game stands between xavier and another ticket to the sweet 16 for a second straight year. from scottrade center, elise jesse, wlwt news 5 sports.

being exposed inappropriately to prescription medication. children get into something that mom or dad or grandma has lying around the house or possibly an adult who gets confused or maybe picks up the wrong bolts and takes the wrong thing. something like that. jennifer: you also brought in a couple of examples we're going to show. i have young kids. it's hard to remember to put protection on every single drawer that might have something and there are things that kids get confused, right? >> exactly. it's important to remember that child resistant closures are only child resistant. they're not child-proof. these are examples of medications in the same bag with a piece of candy and the look-alikes. the red one is a piece of candy and a nasal decongestant. the pink one is a piece of candy and an antacid. it's important to keep things in
we get that often in the days of big bucks retailers where people buy a large quantity of something and repackage it to make it more convenient to carry around the house. they forgot about it or don't tell anybody. someone picks up something that isn't meant for ingestion, but, you know, they think it's something else. jennifer: what would be your number one piece of advice for families with young children and how to prevent the scenarios. >> the main thing is to keep things in the original caner, use child resistant closures whenever possible, keep things away from kids. locked cabinets are a help. kind of be aware of what's going on with your kids. it's a piece of plastic has a child resistant encloesh is no substitute for supervision. be aware of what's going on. if anything happens, call us immediately. jennifer: are you 24 hours? >> 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. we have qualified medical professionals standing by to help anyone who calls us. jennifer: thanks for coming up to help kick off this week and
