could see here a few snowflakes continuing to fly. but what you probably noticed from the past couple of times we've showed you this shot is that it's not steady snow. that's going to back problem in terms of snow trying to accumulate overnight tonight that means for those of you looking for a snow day tomorrow it's not looking that great. here's a look at radar. we do have flurries and snow showers occasionally because the temperatures are on the cuff there. it looks like many areas are waffling back and forth. so it's still going back and forth with these borderline temperatures across the area. but you get the idea. the rain and snow shower activity will continue overnight tonight. maybe a little more steady at other times than on some other occasions. but all in all this is more of a novelty scene snow than something that's going to have a serious impact. you can see part of the reason that most areas temperatures are at or above freezing. given the fact we're in the low
so the ground is much warmer than it was a couple of weeks ago. i can't rule out if temperatures drop below freezing overnight a slick spot here or there but in terms of widespread impact as it relates to travel conditions, i just don't think this system is going to do it for us. here's look at the big picture. there was a band of snow from chicago to michigan. you see it up there to the west of detroit that's where the heavy snow is falling. we're getting this shower-like activity. that's why i'm not terribly concerned. the winds are going to remain very blustery overnight. they will probably increase. we could see wind gusts during the day gusting close to 40 miles an hour. wind chills have fallen all the way back down into the low 20's. without a doubt it will be a cold and blustery thursday across the area. this system here certainly probably going to go down in the
-- should i say because of the amount of snow but just an incredible outbreak of severe weather the past two days from the gulf coast all the way into the mid-atlantic state. and here we are going into the midnight hour, there's still severe thunderstorms watch boxing all the way into new england. that's not common near the month of february. so this system pin wheeling and slowly pulling away will slowly work its way in our direction and will probably pull out of here in the morning. there's the sustained wind at 17. the snow is never really steady. worst case scenario probably half an inch. maybe someone ends up with an inch on a grassy surface from today to tomorrow afternoon. i don't think this will be a big deal. even though it may look impressive given the fact that the winds will be driven by very strong winds.
little on the aggressive end here especially with temperatures above freezing, nothing sticking. so around an inch there, someone may end up a little bit more than that but that would be the exception vs. the overall norm this go-around. rain is changing to snow as we speak. it's going remain quite blustery out. we'll tumble down by around 30. tomorrow snow showers and windy. look at that 36 for a high. it will feel colder. temperatures will hover during the day tomorrow. don't expect for them to climb probably somewhere between 30 and 35 most of the day. so it will be a chilly one. here's a look at your seven-day forecast. we're down to 25 tomorrow night. friday's a cold one. but temperatures take off during the weekend. another big-time rebound although there won't be much out there to melt. we're up to 50 on saturday and low 60's but sunday.

39-8 -- 93-83 victory. they were dialed in defensively and they got nova into foul trouble. a great win here but chris mack says his team has bigger fish t o fry. chris: they're as good as i t gets in college basketball. it was going to take a monumental effort from our team and i think that's what we gave. really proud of our team. you know, you have those thoughts, i'm sure as players and as coaches as everybody reminds you, you guys have never beaten villanova sips you've been in the league. the average numbe r of victories is yada, yada, yada. our team was able to strug -- shrug off that stuff off . if we were 14-14 , we would storm the court. i think ul t it -- it would be
the country to storm the court. my two daughters did. so maybe they're out of line. elise: after the game, myles davis said he disagreement of this moment. he said he wanted to be the number one team in the nation or beat the number one team. of course, xavier did that to villanova tonight. elise jesse, wlwt news 5 sports. george: certainly congrats for chris mack and the musketeers to clear out that win. a championship tight night at the cintas center. championship on the mind of some people here. lou piniella is back with the reds. he made his way back to goodyear. lou piniella in a reds uniform for the first time since 1992. he led the reds to the world series title in 1990. the first of three years is the team's manager. and what a three years it was.
the fight, things fans like to remember but lou would rather forget. >> look, i hope that -- or i wish that i hadn't done those. to me truthfully, they're somewhat embarrassing as i've gotten older. but listen, film doesn't lie. and -- but if i see it and i see it coming, i usually switch the station. i don't want to watch it. george: lou is still a character. and two of his best players are here. eric davis and hall of fame shortstop barry larkin. both are special assistants to the g.m. and perhaps managing could be in the future. barry had some interesting comments about that. we'll have that story tomorrow on news 5. the reds, we'll have more live tomorrow from goodyear. college basketball.
sheree: you're going wake up to a little snow. kevin: some of the areas could see a little bit of light dusting but the snow will not be steady. with temperatures still above freezing, it should make it hard to accumulate. kids, do not stay up late tonight. if i were a betting man, i would think school's in session. sheree: they better be in bed if that's the case. mike: i'm locked in on that 60. kevin: back like last weekend. mike: morning team is with you in four and a half hours. they're here at 4:00 a.m. to take you through the morning commute. thanks for watching.
