8:26 am
at 2:00 p.m. for lake geauga and into ashtabula. nick, we're forecasting three to five inches where squalls persist. definitely higher amounts. >> and the cold is on the way. thank you, janessa. and, of course, our biggest story this morning so you're telling me there is a chance. a reference to jim carrey, one of his movies, no one matching all six numbers in last night's nearly $150 million powerball jackpot. there were several match five winners, including two here in ohio. they were purchased in goshen and milford. the jackpot for next wednesday's drawing now, $1.3 billion that is a pad of more than 800 million, the biggest in u.s. history and that is only going to add up from that point forward as we get closer to the lottery drawing. right now, they're trying to track down an armed bank robber. this is a picture of the suspect inside the 5th third bank on vine street. witnesses said he pointed a gun
