all these animals see on the screen will go out to conroy road facility in sharonville and be available around 3:00 p.m. today. >> and we'll have furry and on air friends -- about three p.m. >> starting at 10:00 o'clock this morning the telethon will kick off. >> all right thanks, adam. you can see this is our tower camera it looks foggy outside. that's mist and drizzle across the area this morning. that's going to continue throughout much of the day today. you can see on precision doppler 12 h.d. looking pretty nice. a lot of the rain we had around yesterday is gone. that's why it's looking pretty nice on doppler radar. whatever is out there is so light it's not being picked up by radar. we'll see flurries and mist about midday we could see maybe a light snow shower move through. so 31 degrees at the
wind coming out of the west. that's a change from yesterday. a cold front came through and changed our wind direction. it's pulling in much cooler air that we have around during the day today. so instead of the 40s upper are 40s like yesterday we're barely getting above freezing. same temperatures barely making it above freezing but one or 2:00 o'clock still carrying on with the flurry chance even late afternoon and evening hours where temperatures fall back into the 20s by 9:00 o'clock. so if you're going out this evening yeah it's going to be a chilly one. we'll have flurries around. don't expect big problems on the road. if any of the road temperatures are freezing. they'll be falling slightly but whatever falls out of the sky is going to be flurries. don't expect too much problems. most of them are in indianapolis and will push eastward. what we're watching tomorrow is a separate cold front an arctic cold front. we call it arctic because it's bringing in much cooler air from
there's the cold front right through sioux city and northern midwest and snow showers back behind it are going to push in tomorrow. we'll have a slightly better chance of a snow shower tomorrow versus today. so 31 here, 28 and 25 off toward central illinois. that's where our cooler air is coming from. already we're 11 degrees cooler this time than yesterday morning. it's much cooler off towards the west. if you want single temperatures they're off toward the daq coat tease. -- daq coat as the. they're below zero in the dakotas. so as we go through the next couple days you can see a couple live spritzes of snow flakes mainly flurries. they're possible anytime today and could carry on into the evening hours. tomorrow morning i think we're mainly dry. we could see brief breaks in the clouds before the sunrises.
the arctic cold front you could see extend from columbus all the way down the ohio river back towards the mid mississippi valley there. there are light snow showers out ahead of it. it could put down a light coating and that's the chance for a couple slick roadways sunday because temperatures will be cold enough it gets pavement temperatures down as well sunday. don't expect big problems but a light dusting can cause problems on the roadways. so that's what we're watching sunday and then here comes the colder air by monday. we're talking lows into the single digits and highs 16 degrees monday. 23 by tuesday. twenty-nine by wednesday. we have a slight chance of light snow wednesday. we're getting higher confidence in that. it's going to be very light. as we go into thursday and friday that's when things get uncertain. high temperatures around 33 degrees. could see snow there. computer models all over the plays with that storm system.
have to watch carefully. >> is that a three? >> that's a three. >> that's a three down there. >> that's a three with sun and rain and flurries and something for everyone really cold and warm and wet and you deliver. >> and that 3 degrees is an average. temperatures could be sub zero in some of the coldest spots. >> some of the colder spots. thanks so much brandon. >> coming up we're going to tell

thirty-four by 3:00 o'clock. we may have a light snow shower. most of it is -- most of it is going to be plane old flurries a couple areas may squeeze out a light dusting but that's about it -- get down 30 degrees. most snow showers will come tomorrow when we have a second cold front and arctic cold front from canada. behind it is where you can see snow showers. right now it's in the dakotas but by later tomorrow afternoon tri-state. not looking at big snow fall amounts. maybe a coating but a coating can do a lot on the roads we've seen over the past couple weeks. so 31 in cincinnati. the 20s are off towards the west this is eight degrees cooler than yesterday morning but it's about 20 degrees around this time yesterday.
towardss georgia the carolinas and it's moving out to sea -- you can see the flurries we'll see into evening hours. as we go overnight we may see a couple breaks in the clouds. i think it will be mainly cloudy especially with the second cold front. this sparks off these snow showers around three, 4:00 o'clock sunday they'll be right over the heart of our area right over cincinnati. that's when you want to watch out for a couple slick spots on the road if you don't want a chance of dealing with it you want to go do you're out door plans during the day today. you see storm models spitting out a quarter inch of snow sunday but that's a very light coating. that's it. 16 degrees for highs. by monday some of the coldest air of the season 3 degrees by monday night into tuesday morning -- tuesday morning. >> more snow chances next week plenty of time to watch it.

early morning. you did a great job for us. that my friend. >> yeah i know. i was waiting for a good transition from you liz. it's a good day to be indoors because it's much colder than the past couple days. we're just into the 50s just two days ago. now we're around the freezing mark. so we do have light precipitation coming down. you can see this whooi wide spread area in the gray -- that's mist and drizzle moving in from the north and west. not too much going on. pavements are above freezing. not air temperatures. just pavement temperatures around freezing in southeastern indiana oxford in northwest butler county 33 degrees. indiana the cooler air moved in first. so they've had temperatures below freezing a little bit longer. it went down to to 32.
counties be aware that there might be isolated slick spots. the rest of us are looking ok for now. we know we have a lot of sunshine but we will get the temperatures up a degree or two. they're not going to rise much above freezing. if you take a closer look into downtown around hamilton county we're right there at freezing mark. a couple areas a little closer to the river around 34 but that's as warm as it gets with the slow climb to 34 about 3:00 o'clock for most of us. still carrying a chance for a light sprinkle into the evening hours as temperatures drop down 29 degrees around 9:00 o'clock. so we're headed well into the 20s tonight. we certainly don't have that now but we'll see it tomorrow as more cool -- cold air moves in. we have snow showers up in the northern dakotas with where a second cold front is.
tomorrow is a completely separate storm system. today is a cold air filtering in from the west. notice due west. it turns west-northwest off towards illinois. that's bringing in much cooler weather filtering into the area. 20s in illinois is moving in our direction. in fact it's a whole lot colder than that. minneapolis very cold. very cold in north dakota. by monday night tuesday morning high temperatures into the low single digits. wouldn't be surprised to see sub zero so going throughout the day notice a couple areas of light blue popping up. that's flurries that we'll have hours. the clouds could break up overnight tonight. this is by 1:00 a.m. but i think we'll see mostly cloudy skies with the second cold front moving through.
hour especially by three, four, five o'clock in the afternoon. three to five. that's the main timeframe for some of these snow showers. a couple could be heavy enough to put down a light dusting in a couple spots. pavement temperatures are going to be lower. so that's when we could watch out for slick spots on the roadways and throughout our viewing area. not a whole lot of snow. a dusting at most but that's all it takes to create slick spots on the roadways. that's what our computer model has if you want more than that you have to go to the words the middle of the workweek. monday night around three. the wind chills combined with those very low temperatures 15 degrees below zero. so it's going to be very chilly monday into tuesday. watching the chance for light snow wednesday. it gets more uncertain thursday into friday. >> monday is a holiday for a lot of people not for us.

and about brandon orr says it's a good day to go skiing. >> yeah. there's one place that has snow left perfect north. it still has quite a bit of snow. it's going to be right there at the freezing mark. notice how they're not making snow because temperatures have fallen to around the freezing mark. overnight they've been falling. we were in the 40s yesterday and 50s the day before that. certainly not the case anymore. this is gray shading. that's flurries that are pushing in from the north and west. that's going to be around all day long. temperatures road temperatures on the pavement are above freezing. it takes a while for pavement temperatures to fall compared to the air. notice how southeastern indiana are at the freezing mark. they're colder because that's where the cooler air moved in first. you can see they're updating now. liberty 32 degrees. that's where we could have
the rest of us just looking at wet roads. maybe a few slick spots later today. we have more for a -- long period of temperatures. certainly tomorrow when we have snow showers moving through. we have a whole lot of clouds. this is going to be what it looks like later on today. we're all pretty uniform in the 30s. so we're right at freezing and will it is there throughout the day. we're going to have flurries around. temperatures drop into the 20s by 9:00 o'clock. so expect temperatures falling through the 20s and don't be surprised to see snow flakes from time to time. we're seeing those move in from the north and west. it's hard to see it on radar because they're so light but we can see more snow showers.
that's pushing into the area. you can see winds are out of the west but if you go slightly west. they turn northwest. that's pulling in cooler weather. we're pulling in cooler weather where it's two degrees right now in minneapolis. sioux city six degrees. single digit temperatures are on the way into the tri-state within the next couple days. lots of clouds around. that's the area of white. the blue dots you see that's mainly flurries. maybe about isolated snow shower. other night we hang onto clouds. we'll await the second cold front that brings the slightly better chance for snow showers sunday. maybe a light dusting could create slick road ways. it's just a dusting. it's not going amount to too much. then the cool weather sets in. if you have the day off monday
tuesday very cold start. 3 degrees wind chills between 10 and 15 degrees below zero. we see our next chance of snow light wednesday. twenty-nine degrees there. then we're looking at another storm system moving into the area thursday night and especially into the day friday. very uncertain what that storm system is going to do. the computer models are all over the place. temperatures around the freezing mark. that's something that we'll update you on the planning

-- they're all charged. and if you live in northern kentucky your water rates are going up. the northern kentucky water district receives the green light for higher rates. the first increase will go into effect immediately. the next hike goes into effect a year from now. it will increase about the same. that gives them 4.8 million dollars in annual revenue. >> it's cold out there brandon. >> yeah weather is around freezing. we're not rising much more than where we are now. what it looks like and feels like is where -- what it will feel like today. we can't rule out flurries all day today. not looking at many slick spots until tomorrow. we have a better chance for snow showers. so pavement temperatures will be lower.
monday night and tuesday morning. wind chills make it 10 and 15. >> we think that's great weather to stay inside and watch our friends. >> pick up your phone and help a great organization. spca does so many great things and this money does so many things for these pets. >> all these pets will be available for adoption at 3:00 p.m. if not join us 10 to 1 today and we'll be back with an update in 30 on good morning cincinnati. >> [captioning performed by u.s.
