tv Good Morning Cincinnati Saturday CBS January 23, 2016 5:00am-8:00am EST
right on the edge of this thing -- this is stale range together the east of us with heavy snow falling in west virginia into maryland and the northeast whether it's a down right blizzard not the case though here in the cincinnati area. we were right on the edge of it and over night we've seen snow continuing to move through the area. still a little bit out there right now this is the precision doppler 12 h.d. south and east of cincinnati. flakes flying and then it's steady light snow continuing in highland county down through adams west union where we have light snow continuing east of cincinnati. that's the way it's going to be over the next two hours. if you're east of town you're going to see a little bit of light snow continuing to push through your area. so will mying on the hills
maybe a few flurries. that's going to be it about -- as we go through the morning. so we're not going to add to the snow totals. we saw an inch of snow at the airport. winter storms were east of cincinnati. again no advisories. no warn nipgs for hamilton county or northern kentucky -- warnings. here's the view. 23 degrees cloudy skies and a biting north wind at 16. that's giving us a wind chill of 10 degrees. morning. skies mostly cloudy. going head up to twenty-six at noon. you may see flurries early on. some snow showers are going linger into the early part of the afternoon so keep that in mind 31 degrees at 4:00 o'clock this afternoon with skies becoming partly cloudy later on today. one of the big questions for a lot of folks are how are things
i'll tell you around the metro area things are looking a ok. it's as you get east that things are not quite as good. we've had reporters out and about and i believe we're going to perry who's been roaming areas. how it is -- is it looking perry? >> well good morning to you john? you know for the most part if you're headed out this morning i think you'll be ok but we're in anderson township. some roads are still snow covered. those are the secondary roads the high ways coming from mount auburn were perfectly fine. so four 71, 275 looking good. mostly wet. i shouldn't say perfectly fine because you don't know if you're going to hit black ice. so you do want to pay attention to that but again most of the main roads look ok. what you're seeing now are the
these are still snow covered. you can see some concrete but not completely. you can see the lanes again not completely. so you want to make sure that you take your time. but if you are headed out you shouldn't have too many problems as long as you keep that in mind. as we head more east we'll see how those roads look. it looks like most crews have been out salting plowing and doing pretty well. guys, back to you. >> thank you very much. we'll check back in with you. >> the roads are pretty bad down south. >> i know i was in northern kentucky and snow is coming down there. good morning my friend. >> we just arrived here but check out this video that was taken yesterday in marysville. it was coming down pretty good. it's coming down lightly.

wood when we started seeing the snow covered roads -- ridgewood. it taped period off in dry ridge. the main roads look like they've been treated. we've seen plow trucks out behind us clearing this area where there are restaurants, hotels. trying to put a dent into the parking lots here but this is what dry ridge looked like yesterday. brad underwood was here and it sounded like they got two to three inches. they might get a little bit today but for the most part it's starting to taper off. that should happen in the next couple hours. they've been out all night trying to clear the roads. they've been out since yesterday morning. also they said the state crews have been out on the inter states making sure the roads are clear. they say they'll probably do one more round and be done -- it should be tapering off in the next couple hours. here in this parking lot they're
customers who might be coming out to get a bite to eat today. right here in dry ridge not too bad. so this is what we're seeing. we'll let you know if it picks up anymore. we'll send it back to you guys. >> megan, i wonder how it is under your feet. can you hear me? >> yes. >> can you tell me about if you're heading out this morning you might want to take a walk around. how is that feeling underneath your feet? >> yeah. underneath my feet it reminds me of what we saw wednesday. i'll show you the snow. it still doesn't pack very well. in cincinnati it seemed like a wet consistency. this still seems to be pretty dry. it's not very slick and the same on the roads when we were coming in. i thought we would hit slick spots but really not too bad. of course be careful but not too much of an issue here. >> good to know. all right you can continue to

marysville where we will have a live report from brandon orr in minutes. here's the view of the winter storm warning. still up for our eastern and far southern areas this will expire though at 7:00 o'clock this morning as this storm winds down and there's the view into downtown cincinnati largely unscathed by the snow. temperatures in the 20s right now. winds are fairly gusty. that's producing a wind chill of just 10 over at the international airport. the wind sustained out of the north at 16. we've seen gusts over 20 miles an hour. it's going to make for a cloudy morning. flurries off to the east early on by noon twenty-six. clouds gradually clear today as we reach a high temperature in the low 30s. i mention the wind. brandon orr is out in marysville joining us out -- with a live report. brandon you mentioned blowing and drifting snow out that way. how is it looking? >> yeah, jon that's what i'm
some parts you can see the grass. there's that little snow. the other parts there's a foot. we're out through downtown marysville. when we were coming down here and we literally just got here the aa highway was find out of cincinnati. it was when we hit pendleton county. for a time it was completely snow covered. we didn't know what lane we were driving in but it's passable. there's a truck coming down the road that it is passable. he's are the snow drifts where you go through here and it's halfway up to my knees. you can see the grass. it's very difficult to measure how much snow. if i had to estimate a half a foot or so. you can see the grass that average out to six inches. i just talked to someone. he owns this mcdonald's that we're standing at. he says in the southern part of this county the roads are
he was driving through pendleton county over towards falmouth. so we're going to walk around and get an idea of what's going on in marysville and we'll have an update. now we want to check with megan moore. how it is where you are in dry ridge? >> hey there brandon that's right. we're here in dry ridge and i'm sure this is how much the kids would have liked to have gotten here this is just what the plows pushed off in the parking lot. this is more of an accurate look at what they got probably two or three inches. not too bad. actually you know driving in here we saw quite a bit of snow coming down but we're seeing less and less. when i talked to brandon he was saying in the next couple hours we'll start to see it taper off and really come to an end. i talked with the road department and they've been out since yesterday morning keeping the roads clear. they weren't too bad the main roads. they look pretty good.
cincinnati when we first got on i-75 south they just looked wet. once we got near ridgewood that's when we started seeing snow covered roads. then getting in here to dry ridge really the roads were wet again. so looks like state crews have been out locally. actually we have some plow trucks that have been trying to get all this snow out of here. so for the most part doesn't look too bad and if the snow is going to stop looks like they'll be in good shape. desk. >> thank you very much megan. i know it will take a little while but they can clear them again. a lot of kids started their day. >> some bad roads all across the drive. school was cancelled. local 12 perry scheib lee is
was hit or miss dicey. how are things where you are? >> well i think that's exactly what we're seeing right now adam. we're on ohio pike 125 just past 132 in amelia headed east towards bethel and just a few minutes ago there were wet roads. now you see what we're dealing with the right lane is almost completely snow covered. you can see some tire tracks but it's hard to see the lane lines. now to the left the other lane on the left of me that has more concrete just simply from the volume of traffic. this is where things get dice see. you saw photographer just change lanes there. well it looked like he did but it's hard to tell if we're actually in a lane at this point or not. here's where the lane is but when you cross these lanes through the snow and slush that's when you can start to slide. if your
you want to steer in the direction that you want to go -- avoid slamming or pumping the brake pedal. that's very important to keep you from sliding completely off the road hopefully but in these conditions it's very very slick. especially when you make lane changes so out here there are trouble spot and snow still coming down just a little bit. adam back to you. >> perry, you guys stay safe. we're going to stay in oh high owe. these are from last night. we spent a lot of time in georgetown this morning o dot says 100 drivers plowing and salting in that district -- the crews are dealing with winds blowing the snow all around the roads. >> well we're going to from our area to a place where they're really getting hit. eighty-five million americans in the path of the monster storm but the nation's capital expected to get the worst of it. it could take 48 hours for roads to be cleared which means monday
really messy. we have more from brine todd. >> the snowstorm of a lifetime is heading into it's heaviest stages. it was an early arrival with snow pal seen before noon. by then d.c. mayor issued another warning. >> we see this as a major storm. it has life and death implications. >> tennessee and north carolina were hit first early friday with snow and ice pounding charlotte, greensboro, asheville. >> i'm going to grab last minute snacks here. >> traffic brought to a stand still. trucks side slipping. cars needing a push. even emergency vehicles got stuck. there were fatalities from accidents on i-95. then the storm bear relled north. officials in washington and other areas are pleading with
>> we want people to stay inside. >> snow fall and truck operators are hoping for that too. >> if there are more people on the roads how does that make it tougher for you? >> it makes it very unsafe for the public. if we go into a slide we have ice. we're asking the public to please stay inside. >> the national guard told all city residents to be off the streets by 3:00 in the afternoon. even with 2,500 personnel and 13,000 pieces of equipment to deploy they're concerned about northern virginia known with congestion. officials warning it will only get worse. >> it will begin a light fluffy mixture. it will become heavy and wet snow at times. >> many airlines have cancelled flights up and down the east coast through this evening. the flight aware shows air
travelers hoping to beat that storm yesterday but only a few were lucky to get out. all flights into philadelphia and washing on the d.c. cancelled. crews are warning drivers to stay off the roads. >> i've never seen it this bad. i feel sorry for those guys. there's nothing they can do is sit will. i live up the road so i thought i will walk. >> -- it is there. >> high winds are expected to complicate efforts to keep the roads clear. major bridges could be closed. officials have asked drivers to stay off the road. >> in d.c. the traffic is bad even when there's no snow. they get flurries and that place comes to a halt. so imagine what this is going to do there. >> some of the worst commute times. >> well still head on good morning cincinnati saturday under arrest a local high school
tri-state and will continue to bring you the very latest. >> we're loving this. gasoline selling for about the same price that drivers paid back in 2009 when we were in the midst of that recession. >> when you stand at the pump you can't picture a downside for gas under $2 a gallon but there are hidden costs to cheap fuel. >> the free falling price of oil has put an estimated 200,000 oil workers out of work. >> most people's reaction when i tell them is well it suction for you i like the gas prices. >> energy companies are getting pump meld with low gas prices. >> we've had to cut expenses -- we had to lay a person off and part-time. >> prices are at unprecedented
>> it slows economic growth. it slows the u.s. growth and global growth. >> and it has rocked financial markets to a degree wall street has never seen in the month of january. >> it's tremendous negative sentiment that feeds into stock market behavior and we're seeing that in states with oil. >> in moderate oil dependent states like texas, objection objection -- oklahoma, north dakota and alaska tax growth is down 50 percent. >> if crude oil remains below $30 a barrel agree sessions will hit texas and alaska is already in one -- re: sessions. >> at the current price of oil it would not cover the cost of our k through 12 education. >> claire went back to earn a degree in geology. she's been out of work for a

the muskies lost to georgetown. the highway use known as the three point shooting team but they knock down 10 triples. chris mack and crew have lots of respect for the pirates -- >> we have a really good team coming in saturday and we have a great respect for this team. they have as much talent and toughness as any team in our conference so you know anytime you lose at least -- it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth but you cannot feel sorry for yourself. you have to try to fix what ma be y be caused you that loss and move forward. that's what we intend to do. >> the hoosiers going after their 12th straight win taking on northwestern. the muskies battles -- battled the pirates. u.k. back home in the s.e.c. against vanderbilt.
going against the flames of illinois chicago. john brandon's club. the flames are flickering o and six in the league. new tradition the blowing of a horn to call the battle. the north off to an early lead. holland pay is -- pay he is it forward. murray leading with 21 points. he goes back to billups. the north scored over time to put out the flames. it wasn't make-or-break game for the bearcats of u.c. but it was close. after losing in double over time to temple the cats could ill afford another conference loss at home. so behind troy's 25 points u.c. went out and took care of business at memphis a four point win that has the bearcats believing once again.
of 16 from the field really helped control the tempo and pace of the game. had four assists along with three steals. a real turning point. nick kroen than has seen a world of difference from last season and this season -- >> i haven't talked about it but they lost their coach and poor larry has to go start being ahead coach and call plays which is not his job as an assistant really. the assistants really do the defense and we had six new guys. >> we just had to play slower to get everybody on the same page. it was how we had to play which was his first year playing point guard for us. >> that's your look at sports. we'll have all your college basketball highlights later. go out have a great weekend stay warm stay safe. >> thank you, brad. we're still dealing with snow

john gumm has your no wait weather. >> yeah guys this is massive storm. in cincinnati we're right on the edge of it. that made it difficult to determine exactly where the cut off to the snow was going to be overall in the greater cincinnati area we got less snow than anticipated but boy they got hit south and east of town. you can see still some snow in virginia. it's snowing heavy there. the storm is making its way along the southern virginia coast. we continue to be on the edge east of cincinnati. falling. we actually picked up more snow overnight around the metro. the airport coming in oh initially with an inch of snow now. that's a look at precision doppler 12. flurries around the 275 loop. that's about it. still some snow around lynchburg coming down pretty good in some spots. still some light snow through back con county.
back ken county. we see a big east coast low keeping our snow going in the eastern counties so you're going add minor accumulation as we work our way through the morning. the winter storm warning is in effect east of cincinnati and south of cincinnati. that goes through 7:00 o'clock in the morning. there's our atrium medical center camera. we're calling for an inch or two of snow in downtown cincinnati. we had an inch at the airport. twenty-three right now. north winds 17. a wind chill of nine degrees. mostly cloudy. we'll make our way to 31 at 4:00 o'clock with gradual clearing but you'll see flurries and light snow persist to the east of cincinnati as we work our way through the morning time hours. we've had crews all over the tri-state taking a look at the road conditions and i think we'll look at more of that coming up in just a bit. >> you heard john say the snow
>> and because of that we have megan moore and several reporters to the south. we want to go ahead and find out what megan is seeing. she's joining us with the latest conditions in dry ridge. kind of a sleepy town there but waking up and clearing the snow megan? good morning. roefr reporter northern kentucky doesn't look like they got much of it -- >> reporter: it looks like the snow is starting to taper off here. fortunately we talked with guys plowing the parking lot here and he told me yesterday he was here three different times. i know they only got a few inches of snow. that's at least what it looks like to me but he said he was here a few times yesterday having to reclear it out because of snow drift. that might be an issue on the roads if the snow gets blowing around. the winds an issue. honestly not too bad.
roads were just wet. so that may not be too much of a problem unless it gets cold and we start to see ice. the interstates look clear. i talked to the grant county road department and they've been out since yesterday morning keeping the loads clear and it shows. they've been busy trying to keep the roads clear for people -- the parking lots they're getting to these. so i think roads may not be a problem. walking around on the snow i know you asked earlier liz what it's like walking around. i think you can get some pretty good traction if you have good boots. don't come out on your kids. you might fall and that would not be fun -- kedz. the snow is pretty dry. that's what we saw wednesday. so maybe more of an issue if it was really wet. it might freeze over. but yeah for now dry ridge not looking too bad and it looks
we'll send it back to you guys. >> all right. now that is a good thing because a lot of people venture out be shopping a little bit and you know how you think it's snowy and underneath it it's frozen. good reminder. i kid see people out in their kedz yesterday. >> people still wear kedz? >> -- yeah good point thanks for reminding of -- us of that. we'll check back with you. >> kentucky governor has declared a state of emergency in ken tuck kichlt areas farther south see close to a foot of snow -- kentucky. lexington. a series of crashes cause them to close the roads. the university game will continue at four at rup arena. >> -- we're going to now the east side in our area.
claremont county. >> perry schaible joins us and photojournalist eric gary hardt is driving -- we lost their shot but we do have perry driving out live and she's going to give us a look at the road conditions once we can get the shot up. >> okay. and moving from perry we're going to check back with perry in just a little while as we mentioned -- it's the east coast that's getting the worst of this snow. they've been slammed by this system. washington, d.c. has called in the national guard to help deal with the projected three feet of snow. today it could be falling at a rate of two to three inches an hour. conditions there are already bad. the good thing however is that most drivers are listening to the call to stay off the roads. one family from virginia says they're just going to make the most of this version -- winter wonderland. >> we came to have dinner with our neighbors with our friends. so we thought we would walk
>> good for you. philadelphia could see a couple feet of snow. new york city expecting a foot. the jersey shore bracing for coastal flooding especially this cone sides with a full moon and high tide. >> we're going to have continuing coverage. make sure you stay with local 12 and local12.com. >> a young man from the tri-state being held in north korea. what we know about his detain meant just ahead.
the snow is falling in marysville. other parts dodged a big bullet. >> a lot of commotion when the fire broke out in the neighborhood. >> crews were called to 12th and pendleton. that identifier mostly on the top floors. firefighters fought it from the outside -- that fire mostly on the top floors. squatters were in the basement and they were able to get out safely. >> a man and woman accused of overdosing on heroin and causing a crash happened with their children in the car. amanda gordon and clay wilson facing charges following what happened on i-74 yesterday right near an exit. both were revived with narcan and their two sons eight and 10 are staying with other family members. >> a high school graduate has
now the u.s. state department is trying to figure out how to get them home. the student was on a chinese tour. he's accused of hostile act or straight by the u.s. government. the same rhetoric the communist government has used in prior arrests of american citizens. >> we continue to share the latest on snow fall from all over the tri-state. >> local 12 brandon orr has been fwolg this storm. he will share details kind of who got what where this morning -- following this storm. >> that's from marysville. it's still coming down out in marysville where we've seen greater than five inches of snow in some parts of mason county. still flying.
look at the rest of yourr welcome back good morning cincinnati. it has been snowy depending on where you live. much further south getting a lot of snow here. not as much. but we've had teams driving all over our tri-state this morning. >> i believe perry schaible are out. how are things right now? >> yeah sorry we missed you before. we're on one 33 near bethel in wiggins vil and this is the thing with this storm. i think a lot of people walk out of their house in cincinnati area -- and think hey we didn't get any snow. the snow has come down but it's worse in different areas this being a prime example of that. take a look at one 33 completely snow covered. all you can see is in the left lane -- tire tracks but that's
you can barely see the lane markers. it's very very slick and the snow is still coming down. now this isn't snow covered for lack of trying we've seen several plows salt trucks out on the road throughout the morning so they're definitely working on it but the snow coming down may be faster than they can deal with this and again these are secondary roads so they're smaller tighter. they're going to be tough to drive on as people wake up and start to leave. like i said we don't want to be alarm mist in some areas immediately in cincinnati things aren't too bad but here in claremont county they are definitely snow covered roads snow still coming down. so people are going to have to deal with this throughout the morning. some areas on the primary roads we definitely saw ohio pike was very slushy. that causes problems because people get more comfortable. they think they can change lanes. that causes problems because
start to slide if you do start to slide you want to turn into the slide point your car in the direction that you want to go. so we'll be out here throughout the morning checking out these roads and continue to bring you guys updates. adam back to you. >> that's the thing. if the snow is still falling you can be out in the back roads. crews can be out there. but if it's still falling they're not going to get out there with the regularity they're doing on 275. >> you can go through one area and it will be fine and then another area. marysville is one of the areas slammed by the snowstorm. >> that's where we find brandon orr. snow still falling there brandon? >> yeah adam the snow is still falling. we finally got it together in marysville. it took us a while because the roads are completely snow covered here. on the way down on the aa highway we couldn't see what road we're in. as long as you take it slow and you're aware of cars around you
we didn't see any wrecks. checkout the snow drift this is caused when the wind was pretty strong yesterday. it's not that bad right now but when we put the ruler in it just completely disappears and keeps ongoing. so snow drifts are more than a foot through here. you can walk through it. it's up to my knees. i believe this is highway 68. this is completely covered. it's not as big as the aa highway but it's pretty identical pretty snow covered. the plows are coming through. they try to plow it and then the snow covers it again. the salt is helping to a point but with temperatures this cold it dovent esn't start and it's slower. we'll come pair that to cincinnati but guys we'll send
>> brandon i have a yard stick that someone brought come and see me before they send you out and i'll give you that yard stick. >> i know i needed that here. we need something bigger than the ruler. >> we got you covered next time buddy. thanks brandon. >> john gumm is in the house. >> i volunteered to go out there and do that. i want to make that perfectly clear but here i am -- >> all warm and cozy. >> there was a line. >> there was a sharp cut off to the snow and in our forecast yesterday morning we are trying to determine where that was. we said we don't exactly know where that's going to be and it ended up being 20 miles more east than what we thought. we did end up with an inch off snow at the airport. most came last night. snow is winding down but to the east the snow continues. h.d.
cincinnati but highland county storm still happening out here. it's generally light snow around the hillsboro area but it's still accumulate lg and out here you saw the shot from perry schaible -- and there's snow coming into claremont county and williamsburg and it's snowing pretty good there as you saw in perry's live shot. we've seen over five inches of snow already over to these areas. you'll notice in adams county we still have snow. we have a pretty good band setting up over peebles. east of cincinnati is where the snow is going to be. so as we loop the radar from now through 8/18 you'll notice in our eastern counties we continue
accumulations. that's why the national weather service has warnings up for our eastern and southern counties. it goes until seven. so it will come to an end soon. one other thing to point out we have winds gusting at 20 miles per hour. so we see blowing and drifting snow off to the east of since natty. these are old snow fall totals but we're going to update these -- cincinnati. overnight. again 1.2 at the airport. around three at hillsboro. we've added to totals in bethel and notice as you get back to the west shef yet very little -- there's the view into downtown cincinnati. we're going to clear out. it's going to take it's time. not as cold sunday. warmer monday as we get back into the 40s. >> 23, north wind at 17 miles per hour. a wind chill of nine degrees so
we start in the 20s with clouds. we'll see a gradual clearing trend. snow showers will continue east of cincinnati over the next several hours. by late today more. look at this massive snow system. thing. snow is quite heavy in west virginia and maryland this morning but for us we're on the edge of the snow. some clearing starting to take cincinnati. so we'll see that clearing eventually take shape as we move through the day. snow showers coming to an end out east. skies opening up a little bit with sunshine peeking through. and then we start clear. we'll bring back a few clouds tomorrow morning and more in the way of sunshine tomorrow. forties. here comes the little rain into the mix as we get into monday night. so expect showers late monday. thirty-one gradual clearing today. 20s if you're headed out the door with skies clearing out. thirty-seven partly cloudy tomorrow. forty-four.
and then -- or late monday. and then showers change to snow showers tuesday. otherwise fairly quiet in the next week. look at the warm up by the end of the week 40s thursday and friday with things turning warmer. don't forget our weather august thoerpt i think app. that snow is hanging out east of town -- authority. we're going to have slick roads as you travel east of cincinnati. >> thank you, john.
snow fall. some outlying areas of cincinnati. we have crews all over and we'll show you that. we want to show you something fun. some cincinnati mascots are prepared to hit the ice at fountain square. >> they'll go head to head at 11. it is free to attend. you'll have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with the mascots both before and after the event. i've never played broom ball. it looks like fun. >> people are probably ready for that. >> speaking of the ice and cold we're tipping to follow the winter storm in the tri-state. >> these are live pictures from i believe the dry ridge area where we have megan moore and she's been out there all morning. one of the main areas she's been looking at kind of the shopping areas the parking the sidewalks. some of those places we'll be hitting today as we venture out of our homes.
some in dry ridge as well. we're checking out the tri-state and i know brandon is in marysville. we'll see him in a little bit too. >> snow to the south. thank you so much for waking up with us on cincinnati saturday. i'm adam clements. >> and i'm liz bonis. >> first a quick check with the forecast. good morning. >> all right. good morning, guys. hey i'm over here checking things out to the east of cincinnati. we still have snow flying east of downtown cincinnati. some of this has still been accumulating especially out through claremont county and brown county. this is precision doppler 12 h.d. around hillsboro. still some snow falling. especially south of williams burlington -- williamsburg.
brooksville light snow. county. this is an accumulating snow -- rip lee. this storm is not through with areas east of cincinnati yet where the snow continues to fly. some spots closing in on six inches or better of snow in the far southeastern part of our loop. it's just been flurries the past hour or so. we did add snow overnight which put our total to over an inch of snow with this system. it's massive system at that. look at this thing. it is pounding parts of the northeast on the back edge of it. we're starting to see that snow coming to an end across the greater cincinnati area but areas to the east is going to persist before it winds down. winter storm warnings will expire in a little bit to the east and south of downtown cincinnati. there is down town cincinnati where we escape most of the snow.
winds at 17. a wind chill of just nine right now. we start with clouds and flurries around the i-275 loop. light snow persists east of snow. temperatures mostly cloudy. we work our way into the low 30s. there's a nice warming trend following this system. we'll step you through the weekend and into next week in a few minutes, guys. >> thank you very much, john. >> i know john and brandon have been talking about the worst of the snow in north kentucky. >> megan moore is live in dry ridge this morning. couple inches on the ground still? >> you know i think it depends where you stand. clearly they have cleared off the roadway. we're in a residential area. we wanted to see what the roads looked like here. for the most part snow covered. some people have been traveling down this road but then you step
there's quite a bit more snow. so it's kind of hard to judge just how much they got. probably a few inches as looet -- least. earlier when we were coming this way on i-75 south roads were not too bad. interstate not too bad. roads were mostly wet. and then heading near ridgewood we saw the snow coming down and it's sticking down to the roads. like here in the residential areas i'm seeing some people have their lights on already. they may want to vep church out this is what you're or going to see -- if you try to get out of your driveway. depending on how good your car and tires are you may have a problem geth out. we've seen a lot of plow trucks. they're trying to clear the parking lots -- also driving this way some of the main roads
where we came off the exit it looked like the roads were more wet but some of the roads you may see snow covered. so depending on how well your traction is on your tires you may slip and slide. for the most part not too bad. the snow seems to be tapering off so that's a good thing too. hopefully you'll be able to get out this weekend. i know some people are tired of the snow and that might be a possibility to get out and do something today. >> megan john gumm says he needs seven different measurements within a five feet radius and then average those together so we need you to work on that ok? >> ok. i'll do that. >> go get in the van and stay warm. >> let's look at what we found last night in brown county. you can see in georgetown efforts to clean private lots.
counties are in odot district 9 and the state reported 100 drivers plowing and salting in the district -- adams. people are urged only to drive if absolutely necessary rifl. people seem to be staying put -- necessary. >> this storm system is coming down hard in the south. now this is video from south carolina where plows were working to keep one the falling snow and dropping temperatures. lots of accidents there. cars ending up in ditches on the sides of the interstate. >> you can deal with the winter weather therein new engineers see in the garden state. not only is there concern about the snow fall but high tooidz could bring flood from the coast. yesterday bulldozers were busy trying to shore up a san dune that was built after super storm sandy. >> airlines have cancelled more
that rush was on yesterday to get out of airports from cities as far south as charlotte all the way back to new york city and the east coast storm has caused a rip pell effect all over the country. -- united cancelled harry's flight and now he will not be able to return until monday. >> i would love to be back with my family and they're going to be there and get two feet of snow and probably the power is going to go out and there's nothing i can do to help them. >> that storm is expected to impact 80 million people. >> we will of course have continuing coverage of the weather conditions this morning. we'll be following along with a storm on the east coast. make sure you stay with local12.com. >> turning now to local news. today kroger will help with an effort to to bring fresh water to flint, michigan. the city's water was tainted after switching systems to change money. a truck will be parked outside
you can bring donations to take there. now the truck will hopefully be filled and at 9:00 o'clock it will make it's trip to flint. >> a local child suffering from brain cancer gets a special celebration. tyler has been released from cincinnati children's hospital after some more procedures. he'll be picked up by firefighters at one and taken to bridgewater church. people will gather to welcome him home once again. he has dipg which is the same illness lauren hill had. >> brandon orr is in marysville this morning. that's an area they're getting quite a bit of snow. we're going to check in with them to see how the roads are old up out there.
we'll preview theirir claremont county saw a lot of snow last night. >> perry and eric have been driving the roads. good morning, perry. >> hey good morning you, liz. you know what? i think what you're seeing on the picture may be different. it almost looks to me like you cap see pavement where we are on ohio pike in yankee town. you cannot see pavement at all. the road is completely snow covered. it's tough to see which lane
it actually is very slick out here. we have seen more drivers hit telling road. we also saw one that slid off the road. so it's very very important to get out here to take your time and to know what to do if that happens. if your car starts to skid you want to steer it in the direction that you want the car to go. so avoid slamming or pumping the brake pedal. that should help you stay on the road. this car was actually off the side and dipped down. so it's going to be tough to get that out of our -- or off the side of the road and back onto the road but those are things that people are dealing with. i think this snowstorm is really tough because some people walk outside. they say the roads are just wet. there really isn't any snow. clearly in some areas there is a lot of snow and here's the thing. it depends on where you are completely. when we turn off this ohio pike sometimes there's snow filled roads.
clear even though those are the secondary roads. so it depends on what you're seeing. on our way out here four 71, 275 those look ok -- but they look wet but worry about black ice that you can't see. this here is more visible and again ven very very slick for folks in this area. guys back to you. >> perry remind us again exactly where you are -- i think i counted maybe two cars. it looks like there's not a lot of traffic this morning? >> we are actually in brown county so we have moved from claremont count toy brown county ohio pike. and it's yankee town. -- county. >> all right. we'll check in with you shortly and exactly what you said is true but take your time. >> we do want to take a moment if you're staying home. you may want to stay in and watch some sports. we're going to throw it to brad
>> we hope the weather wasn't too bad -- lots to get to this morning. we start with xavier. muskies bouncing back from their second loss their first at home. later today a big east battle against seton hall coming off to a loss to villanova. the highway use aren't normally known as the shooting team but they knocked down 10 triples. chris mack and crew have lots of respect for the pilots. >> we have a really good team coming in saturday. a team we have a great respect for. they have as much talent and conference. anytime you lose it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. yourself. you have to try to fix what maybe plagued you in that loss and move forward. that's what we intend to do. >> it's going to be a great day of basketball headed your way.
the hoosiers taking on northwestern. the muskies battled the pirates at home at 2:00 o'clock. u.k. back home in the s.e.c. the red hawks are on the road. >> northern kentucky at home going after their second horizon state win. john brandon's club. new tradition the blowing of the horn. jaylen finds lavon for the triple. north is off to an lead. holland over to cole for another three ball. murray leading with 21 points. later on murray goes back to billups. inside for the bucks. north scored 17 points in over time to put out the flames 82 to 69 the final. >> you know it wasn't exactly a
bearcats of u.c. but it was close. after losing to temple the cats could ill afford another loss so u.c. went out and took care of business against memphis that has the bearcats believing once again. just standing around. the junior point guard went nine of 16. really helped con rent to the tempo and pace. had four assists along with three steals. nick cronin has seen a world of difference in his team. >> i haven't talked about it all year but they lost their coach and poor larry has to go start being ahead coach and call plays which is not his job as an assistant really. the assistants usually do the defense. we have six new guys. we just had to play slower last year to get everybody on the
that's just how we had to play which was really his first year of playing point guard. >> that's your sports this saturday morning. allie will be here later today. go out and have a great weekend. stay warm. stay safe. >> we've been mentioning when the college basketball u.k. is going to play anyway today even though lexington has quite a bit of snow. so does marysville. >> absolutely. that's where we find brandon orr in marysville. brandon marysville is one of those pretty little sleepy country towns and you've got a guest with you there. >> yeah. everyone is off the roads. we're not seeing too many cars but one person that is mark. you've been out here trying to clear the parking lots for the businesses. how does this snow compare to a couple days ago? >> a couple days ago it wasn't nothing. we didn't do nothing but spread salt. >> and this is not as much as
get? >> no i thought we were going to get 10 inches or so. >> i think we got lucky compared to what they had just to our south. >> yes. >> you were talking about the owner of this mcdonald's. it's a mess down in family mix berg. >> i know time is money -- thanks for talking with us. >> be careful. >> now snow amounts were around half a foot or so and you could see in the parking lot how much snow is here on the pavement this is including what melted when the snow initially started to fall and they had the road salted and pretreated and ready to go. so it continues to fall here lightly. we're going to see it for the next few hours. it's not going to add on much accumulation. checkout how this appears over in cincinnati. this graphic shows they got an inch for cincinnati. that means totals is a little more than eight inches.
for now we'll send it back to you guys. we'll go around. we'll try to talk to more people see when they're trying to opening -- open the businesses. >> brandon we heard that truck starting up. >> it was so loud i felt bad. i said can you turn this off so we can hear you when you talk? >> so he's cost thing guy money and making him get cold. good job, brandon -- costing the guy money. >> brandon said six inches. we have hamilton county in cincinnati in a band of one to two inches. we were on the low end and it took all night to squeeze out that inch of snow. >> and you said things moved east? >> 20 miles farther east than what we were estimating. i told people -- i wrote a big dissertation shin.
be a sharp storm because there's going to be a sharp cut off. we're going to give you an estimate and that's the estimate. it was 20 meals east. east of town roads are bad -- 20 miles east. someone wrote me and said hey we have snow falling in hamilton. yes. hillsboro some light accumulating snow. we're not going add much to totals but you're going to increase totals by a continue any bit around georgetown and snow continues. it's starting to end here in claremont county but flakes around 679 still seeing light acouple lating snow -- and it's let up in marysville that is band of snow has pushed back west around german continue and
continues in adams county. -- there's embedded bands here with a little bit of accumulation expected with that band but not much more in the way of accumulation. the next couple hours some snow and scattered flurries across the tri-state will persist before things clear out. winter storm warning expected to come down very soon and it will be dropped to the east and south of cincinnati. winds have been gusty too. and the places southeast of cincinnati. we've seen blowing and drifting snow out that way as well. winds gusting at 25 miles for hour at lunken airport. five, west union, aberdeen, six in marysville brandon orr says. 1.2 at the international airport and three inches from critical
cheviot a half inch overnight. there's the view downtown with in your rears here and there. we're going to clear out today. not as cold tomorrow. warmer monday. that's the trend to get warmer in the days ahead. twenty-three now north winds at 17 wind chill at 9:00. we'll start out with clouds flurries and light snow east of cincinnati. we'll head into the low 30s this afternoon. massive storm system. this thing is pounding the east coast. we're right on the edge of it. we've been on the edge of it over the past 24 hours and the heaviest down of in tennessee and kentucky. you can see how the snow has been winding down over the past few hours. so things are beginning to improve and that is the trend here. snow coming to an end today. clearing later on. we'll hit 31 degrees. tomorrow we're partly cloudy up to 37. and then monday we see rain
snow is going to start melting away 44 degrees monday. a few snow showers tuesday. especially early in the day. upper 30s. wednesday looks quiet maybe a flurry. look at the warm up by the end of the week. we're back into the 40s next week. you can track the weather changes with our free weather authority app. i would say i've been doing weather 20 years in cincinnati. half that in cincinnati. that was one of the top five most difficult storm to forecast because of the cut off being in the middle of my viewing area. i'm looking at the models. i'm like really? because we're not going to be able to tell exactly where that's going to be. so you do your best there. thankfully we didn't get the heavier snow in cincinnati. >> it's almost like people are disappointed and we should be grateful. >> yeah. >> all right.
it's kind of dark. you can see where my dogs have trainsd through it and i'm guessing perhaps we got an inch of snow -- i live in northwestern kenton county. so that would have been one to three inches. just with john gumm there's a picture of my grill with snow on top. >> i'm grad we got the grill in there. >> love it. >> across parts of northern kentucky we have snow come through overnight that add towed the total roughly -- added to the total. 1.2 out at the international air poert. >> you know it's cold -- airport. >> do you know the name of john lomax's doing? >> johnny cash. >> only john loam max can pull
>> indeed. we still have snow flying east of cincinnati. you may see a flurry around the metro but most of this stuff is off to the east. it's winding down. still some snow going down in highland county around hillsborough. out here through brown county -- crossing around augusta germantown, marysville and back ken county. even into eastern pendleton -- even around mount olive vet you can see snow showers in west union. next couple hours snow can find areas east of cincinnati slowly going to break down so we will see snow coming to an end. we'll be on the edge of a monster. this is pushing up the eastern say board. right on the edge of it in cincinnati area.
east of town. we're going to see dryer air working in today. so gradual clearing is expected saturday. there's the heavier snow. the winter storm warning has been cancelled. except for adams, mason and robertson county. this very extended it out there. there is still some snow flying. here's the view in downtown cincinnati. twenty-three at the airport. north wind. we're starting in the 20s. we'll see garage you'll clearing heading for a high temperature later in the low 30s. i'll be back in a little bit with more on what you can expect for the rest of the weekend but right now i want to send to it the man who should be standing in this warm studio and not outside in the snow in marysville. meteorologist brandon orr joins us. house it looking out there brandon? >> hey it looks good going they created a snow hill out here --
what it's like in marysville. of course it's a lot different. here. so the snow has been blowing around creating snow drifts. you go from hardly anything and then it's up to your knees. the rule already just about disappears in some places. >> so on average it's six inches 68. it. there are tire tracks. there have been plows salting but it's so cold and the snow still comes down. so as long as it's doing that the plows can't get the upper hand on it. this is the double highway but how big a bull ledge did we dodge? check this out. we have close to six in whens in marysville but there's the international airport a little over one inch -- inches. if you total that up in cincinnati more than eight
we're closer from this storm alone. down in southeast kentucky snow totals up to 20 inches. that's where the heaviest of the snow fell. that's why we're uncertain where the bands set up. coming up in other next half hour we're talking to owner and we're going to see when we can get the businesses open in marysville in 30 minutes. guys. >> got to get a mike muffin right? >> snow is going even out -- well, we have people all over the northern kentucky area. brandon has been in marysville but we have megan moore in dry ridge. she's been in a couple areas this morning. where are you now, megan? >> oh the snowplow. >> a little deceiving here. you may think i'm in marysville but i'm not. i'm in dry ridge. and you said the gum measure
totals -- i'm going to try to come down this hill without hurting myselfmer needed help measuring the snow totals -- i'm going to try to come down this hill without hurting myself myself. here's a more realize stick look. this is kings drive here in dry ridge. honestly it looks like they got a few inches realistically and obviously residential roads snow covered on our way in. seventy-five south looked wet. didn't look too bad. you're probably going to have an issue there. i talked with grant county road department. they said they have been out throughout the evening clearing the roads putting salt down. we've seen a lot of plow trucks out. we're over near the businesses. they're clearing out the parking lots. i know some people are going to
eat. i'm sure people are tired of being stuck in their house. dry ridge not looking too bad. they got a whole lot more closer to cincinnati even less. we're going to send it back to you. >> i'll pass that estimate along to mr. john gumm thank you very much. >> several towns have been driving around. >> good morning perry where are you? >> hey good morning to you liz. you know we are in bethel between near amelia so we're on ohio pike and you can see the results of the salt on the roads. good good thing. the crews have been out here overnight all through the morning. dropping salt. plowing the roads. and this is what you get when that happens. it's not snowing any longer so they've been able to clear it off.
concrete and we actually have lanes. you don't want to get too comfortable but there is slush. you can see that as we driving along. there are snow drifts in the right lanes that force you over. so when there's another car next to you like that truck right there you don't want to get forced over and get into the other lane because of course that causes problems as well. now earlier you saw a totally different scenario when we were in yankee town. in yankee town we saw there was a car off the road. we stopped to see if we could help that gentleman around he said he saw an animal in the road tapped his brakes and he slid across the road and into a ditch. so you want to keep some things in mind though if you get stuck. you want to stay with your vehicle. don't walk outside. if the weather is severe. keep your dome light on because it uses a small amount of
that conserve gas by turning the vehicle on only periodically to warm up. because if you keep it on you could have some problems. he was waiting for a tow truck and police. that is the only issue we saw. but again we do see some positive results now from the salt that they've been laying down all morning. >> guys. >> perry you're near amelia. they've got side streets there as well. are they salted too from what you can see? >> from what we've seen they are more snow covered. although this is really like a mixing -- mixed bag. when you turn down one road you could see concrete and down scenario. keep that in mind. i'm not going to say don't go out in certain areas there are certain areas under snow out. this is not one of those. if you have somewhere to go take your time.

with the cold temperatures we could see dice see spots on the roads. especially black ice under the overpasses -- you might want to watch out for that. traffic is moving okay. and you mentioned marysville. the businesses may not open today or may be delayed -- but here in dry ridge they've probably got a few inches or so. i don't think that's going to be a problem as far as business messes opening up. -- businesses opening up. the side roads are slushy. the interstates are looking okay too from what we've seen. but dry ridge not looking as bad as marysville. but honestly the best view is the window. if you get to stay inside today i would say that's your best bet. it is chilly. >> we'll send it back to you guys. >> she has a point. looking outside it's very pretty

some parts where there is some snow drift over into the lane but besides that we're moving along just fine. one little thing as you do turn from the main roads to side streets those are more snow covered like this one you see right here on my left. on the left of your screen. but you know the thing is when you turn into those you may slide a little bit because you're going from pavement to the snow or slush. so take your time. you don't want to slide into another car. aside from that things are looking good. adam back to you. >> perry, thank you. >> we took these pictures east of where perry was where the flakes were falling. this morning odot says 100 drivers are plowing and dispatchers are describing the roads slick but they have not had any serious problems. >> you're looking at a live

they had an inch or less in hamilton and kentucky it picked up rapidly two to four, four to six. six plus confined to mason and robertson counties this was the observed snow fall last night. we've added a little bit to it since then. those amounts will be slightly more. that band was off to the east and southeast than anticipated earlier. i want to show you snow fall totals from the tri-state. marysville a half foot. falmouth. five inches west union. georgetown 1.2. then as you went west amounts started to go down to. three inches on hillsboro and that region. some amounts are old measurements that happened last night prior to 11:00 o'clock. there's precision doppler 12. still some snow coming down. highland into adams.
but it is moving away from the area now. we're starting to see the snow move out. blowing snow. adams mason robertson county. even in our eastern counties. so that will continue to give us issues on the roads. those winds have been gusting over 20 miles an hour at times. those of you downtown from the atrium weather center we're going to clear out. warm up coming. not as cold tomorrow. warmer as we get into the day monday. twenty-three degrees. a wind chill at 10 with north wind at 16. we start in the 20s. flurries finish in the 30s. massive storm system pulling east. we were right on the edge of this thing and you can see how the snow is winding down to the east of cincinnati. that's the trend here. everything moves out. the sun shine peaks through the clouds. we might go mostly sunny in some
