highland county. that's the best chance of seeing snow this morning. in fact near wilmington we could see slush on car tops. not on the roads. certainly this is the same map we used yesterday. we're not expecting much of anything from cincinnati, kentucky and indiana maybe a snowflake mixing in but that's it. that's what we have for around 10:00 a.m. that's when temperatures are falling into the 30s. that's when we'll hit our lows is around 10 or 11. then we'll rise into the 40s with on and off rain showers. we'll top out our testimony commerce into the middle 40s. maybe in northern kentucky they'll squeeze out 30s and 40s. even a few peaks of sunshine by 7:00 o'clock when the sun sets. i'm hoping we can get part of the day dry. at least some dry periods in here by late afternoon.
trying to push in but we had a lot of dry air. you can see this near columbus. that's snow flakes trying to mix in but this rain goes back nearly to st. louis. so we have awhile to go until this moves out. forty-five and 38. we get temperatures around 38. yeah that's above freezing but off the ground it's below freezing. we can still have snow falling with temperatures in the 30s. forties over towards evansville. the warmer air is farther south. we're talking bowling green on the south and into ten 7. here's snow mixing in -- tennessee. it's mainly rain in southeastern indiana south of brookville and much of more then kentucky. just a few snow flakes. the rain snow line just starting to approach cincinnati but this afternoon it lifts back north and we're looking dry sunday. it's going to be a mostly dry
