7:15 am
union counties in indiana. but the rest of us, included in it, the steady snow and most of our accumulating snowfall comes down this afternoon and evening. then it tapers into snow showers that will last through the overnight into early monday morning. in place. quiet conditions at that point. the snow will move in quickly 2:00 and 3:00. we're going to see that snow build in for downtown and spread into the eastern counties past 3:00 p.m. we all have snow for the evening hours. late afternoon and early evening, then we have scattered snow showers past 10:00 and 11:00 tonight into tomorrow morning. so the morning hours, it's cloudy and cold. temperatures down around ten degrees. between noon and 4:00, snow spreads from west to east across the region. and we have concerns for slick spots and roads getting covered as well. i think they'll be treating them readily. with the snow coming down between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m., that's when we get most of our accumulation. two to three inches looks common
7:16 am
i think the one to two, the one is probably a little on the low end. even the white shaded counties are looking at two inches. the southern counties may see a couple of spots more than three inches. so we are expecting accumulation for everyone. most occurs between noon and 10:00 tonight. 13 degrees the current temperature. the wind chill at one for what it feels like, an east wind at nine miles an hour. satellite and radar showing this weak band of slight snow showers and flur res this morning. what we're watching right now is across missouri, over the last couple hours, heavy snow between kansas city and st. louis with move to the east. bringing us the widespread accumulating snowfall. it will continue into the evening. starts to taper for the overnight and then notice tomorrow, it's another storm system we're watching coming out of the south. with that, it brings a good amount of additional moisture wit.
7:17 am
storms come in from the south. we transition tomorrow for the afternoon and evening start for the system. if we end up with any accumulating snow on the northern edge of it, models are trending towards a warmer solution monday evening. it may end up being a mix to rain scenario. we'll watch the low pressure closely. we have moisture and activity monday, tuesday and wednesday. mixed potentials there monday as well as tuesday. temperatures above freezing for highs during the period. 37 wednesday for a high. once we get rid of the activity, the first half of our week, we start to quiet down and warm up. highs in the 50s. good melting there as we head into next weekend. jonathan. jonathan: xavier looking for redemption after the loss against creighton earlier in the week. could they find it on the road against butler? elise jesse has the answer in morning sports. elise: good morning. i'm elise jesse. xavier on the road for the second time this week. the first road trip at creighton didn't go well.
