4:00 pm
thank you, tyler. . >> tracking the storm in the last couple of days. we want to get to them for the
4:01 pm
>> good afternoon. national winter service has said continued the storm warnings we've seen today. 24 includes highland county brown and all of northern kentucky. this goes all through saturday. the winter weather advisory for hamilton county. switzerland and dearborn county. this is due to the amount of dry air in place, especially to the north and to the northwest of cincinnati. we mentioned all along, littleton, snow, connorsville. brookville, liberty. for cincinnati, we're in the dividing line of virtually no snow to perhaps a half inch to an inch of snow. so we still have the 2-4 inches ban south of hillsborough, extending down interstate 71
4:02 pm
we have 6-8 inches of snow south of peebles. six inches of snow in mazeville and south. much of hamilton county, have taken out of accumulating snow. less than an inch, in wilmington and port william. and most of the storm will focus the efforts to the east and southeast. from where we had them a couple of hours ago. still plenty of snow to track. not so much in the 275 loop. i mentioned in the cutins, 1:00, 3:00 in the afternoon, the burst of snow trying to reach to hamilton county. that's unsuccessful in making a lot of progress in hamilton township. close to hillsborough.
4:03 pm
hillsborough and down to the south. i think some of the snow, will get to the grounds. and the hour-by-hour forecast, shows temperatures steady, evening. snow will be favored early, south and east of cincinnati and at best, lingering in the night. and another look at the snowfall total map and updated look at the impact in the winter weather event coming in 10 minutes. . >> and we will check back. communities to the south and east. bracing for the heavier snowfall. angenette levy is live in brown county in the community of georgetown. the snowfall there. >> and hi, brad. we're there on 125 and main
4:04 pm
georgetown ohio. take a look at the roads behind me. the snow is good falling out here. pretty lightly in the next hour and a half or so. we have an accumulation on the road. it's not impacting traffic at this point. a lot of people who live out here stay home or are making their way home so they can stay for the night. look at the video we shot a short time ago. this is in downtown georgetown, down by the courthouse. you have people driving through, very slowly, taking their time. we have seen a couple of snow plows. the people out here, waiting to see what happens. we see quite a few people coming in and out of the stores around here. we're going to talk to the people. obviously, it's going to be one of the big, the first big or possibly the bigger snowfalls here in the area, in the georgetown area. we'll keep an eye on things and see how things are going. right now, you could see over
4:05 pm
way here. there's a plow and a truck going by. we've seen quite a few pickup trucks. a lot of people take the time. a lot of people working inside, the trucks in the winter, so they can make extra money clearing driveways, things like that. i'm sure you could see a lot of people with >> and we will check with hers. and sydney benter. >> sydney is checking things in the eastern part of the state. she joins us live. apparently she's not available but joe webb is available. >> joe webb. >> joe webb, check in with us. where are you now? >> well, i'm at the top of the cut-in-hill, where just like scott dimmich told us, snow inside the 275 loop has pretty much been nonvented. you don't get too far south.
4:06 pm
and let's look at the pictures we took earlier today around 2:00 in the afternoon. it's been snowing steadily since 10:00. i-75 was well treated. traffic was moving pretty well in the roadway. northbound truckers, truck stop, 75 was snow packed, down to one lane through much of lexington. traffic is slowing down 20 miles an hour. drivers we caught up with, rest stop, richville kentucky, scraped ice down the cars. sigh the roads were a mess until they got 20 miles. i think it's safe to say, here in the heart of the tri-state, we dodge the bullet. and we know the snow event isn't over completely yet. i think it's pretty clear, like tom and tim and erica, scott,
4:07 pm
to get the least of the storm. i have to tell you, the story today for me, is this cold. it is cold and it's extremely windy, even though we're not getting the snow we expect it to get, this is a tough day. i mean this is really a tough day to get outside. expecting a big snowfall and made plans to stay. it is brutal out here. >> and you're up high on a hill. it's all about location, location, location, my friend. >> i'm ready to get into a warm location, warm location, warm location. >> we're with you, buddy. thank you very much. >> the good news, jane's location. >> jill. >> i can't hear. >> i couldn't hear him so i'm not -- >> wining inside. >> he's stuck in the cold. >> the evening commute is a little letter.
4:08 pm
their week early and they did. >> they left downtown and >> and i like the second, what joe webb said. even though i see flurries here. you're like the kid '. a lot of people were here very early. they didn't want to deal with the snow, depending where they leff in the trihb. obviously, to avoid any problems on the way some time. business was very light today. they didn't have a lot of customers especially those who work downtown. and leaving work for the day. one man, he got the call that
4:09 pm
on the bus. literally almost to work, he got off the bus in fountain square. got back on and go right back home. he didn't mind. others say they were going to call it a day around 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon. a lot of the co-workers leave early, what were they saying >> it wasn't actually that busy. due to the snow, people were gearing to come out. oh, yeah that's about it. >> what time do you normally would? >> like 6:00. >> you used to seeing downtown so empty. a lot of people got. >> i think people got out of dodge, to avoid the choice >> and i think some people were telling us, they think some of the co-workers decided to stay home, not even bother, either had child care issues because school was cancelled or they didn't have to deal with any issues on the highway.
4:10 pm
usually buzzing with people. some people are saying, later for the cold, i'm not trying to deal with it. they have caused it a day. reporting live from fountain square, local 12 news, paula, back to you. >> you think about the fact, this is friday evening and this is downtown. >> shut down the city. local 12 has your coverage for you. keep a close eye on the traffic . >> >>. >> and people pick up the night. and we will start the turn around, how quiet the interstate right now. they either left early or didn't go out at all. if you look at 71-75, cut-in-hill.
4:11 pm
inbound and outbound. and in fact, we're accident-free on the map. on a friday afternoon, that's kind of unusual. i wanted to take a look at the cameras that's a little further down south. scott dimmich said there may be light flurries going on, 71-75, richwood. and you could tell there is flurry action going on there, south, north of verona. the interstate looks fine. no issues to report at all. again, i will leave you with this four camera look of the interstate. we have no problems. i will be back in the next hour. >> always good news on the traffic. sydney benter, has a good look at the road conditions. >> is checking out things in the eastern part of the state.

4:19 pm
lebanon and wilmington. . we have adjusted the forecast. the nags. the winter weather advisory in fact. everyone and early saturday. i think that the winter storm warning will verify peebles, augusta, perhaps south of owington. i think the winter storm warning is a bit much, boomton, and as far west and south as carol county. to the north of the winter storm warning, there's a winter weather advisory. clinton and warren count eye. i think this is over done as well. sf stekt. and the biggest concern for snow, well southeast of cincinnati.
4:20 pm
nonevent for areas northwest of cincinnati. oxford, perhaps, closer to an inch near cincinnati, especially south of cincinnati, still have florence, switzerland, ohio county, back to hillsborough, and amounts really start to ramp up. bans of snow, cincinnati's risk of snow has gone down in a couple of hours. a lot of dry air near the ground. temperature and dew point is close together, it's difficult to get snow reaching the ground. at least in part. in this case, for many in full. there will be periods of snow, cincinnati. this afternoon and this evening gradually. and clouds will break up.
4:21 pm
you could track the snow, that would be favored south and southeast cincinnati. the weather authority app, updated the forecast, within the last hour. temperature 29, cincinnati. we can see the buildings in downtown well. i don't see a big concern, occasionally, we see a few flakes showing up here in the weather cam. even those will accumulate. the heavy snow, will beat the south of the event. little if any snow is expected, in cincinnati to the north, northwest. snow moves out for everyone overnight. temperatures 28. dew points 18. that's a problem. numbers will be close together for snow to be close to the ground. flurries and snow showers,
4:22 pm
cincinnati. not so much, . >> southeast of cincinnati, area of low pressure pulls out. snow continuing in the nation's capitol, all the way to tomorrow night. you deserve a break of snow and clouds. threat level, and be prepared.
4:23 pm
snow will accumulate. reduced. northern kentucky, areas along union. snow is favored, southeast of cincinnati tonight. breezy. we're up to 31 degrees. planning forecast shows we've got sun tomorrow and sunday. especially late tomorrow. wall to wall sun, with high clouds on sunday. opportunities for rain showers and snow showers will have to wait until monday and tuesday. the screaming message down. and around the 275 loop. expecting winter weather advisory. winter storm criteria and northern kentucky and in the ohio river. that's where 2-4, 4-6 possible. >> check the radar. >> we'll talk to you how great traffic was. we have a problem. >> kind of change a little bit.

4:26 pm
saturday. i think the most hoikly spot for the winter storm warning verify will be close to mazeville, west union and augusta. i think we struggle to make it a winter storm winter level. and there's winter weather advisory for part of south eastern indiana. hamilton county, warren and clinton county. i think we struggle to get this verifying. this comes from the national weather service. we're under a different school of thought, thanks to dry air being pumped to the north and northeast. 1-2 inches of snow, including hillsborough. especially areas south of cincinnati. 2-4 likely in the deeper shade of blue. 6-plus south of mazeville. this is a nonevent for areas north, northwest of cincinnati. especially hamilton, oxford, brooksville. flurries in and around

4:44 pm
struggling to reach the ground, at least in parts. in and around cincinnati, mainly flurries especially in the shade of gray in the eastern edge of the 275 loop. down to the international airport and especially up to the dearborn hamilton county line. i think we struggle to pick up an inch of snow or, any snow, and further to the east, and to the southeast of cincinnati, this is where the winter storm is. this is where the possibility of two or more inches of snow will be. . >> time for diminish. along the ohio river from stout,

4:46 pm
and the northern edge of the winter storm warning, probably one to two inches of snow. : close to cincinnati, and an inch of snow is probably being generous. northwestern hamilton county, not much. i think you'll be able to get out and about without any problems. take the dog for a walk. enjoy the flurries around you. that should be about it. mazeville, reporting visibility under two miles. notice visibilities in the 275 loop. ten miles. that's how high it should go. the dew point is well below the temperatures. those numbers are close together before they should reach the ground. there's a tight. snow will be focused south and east downtown.
