showers and sprinkles make it to the ground. especially in ripley and dearborn county, i'm sure that's making it to the ground. it's a chilly rain in spots this morning. the contention that is we have such dry air at the surface that it's raining you loft, but not all of it is making it to the ground. we're in the mid 40s for cincinnati. we have upper 30s to 40, 41, 42, and our northern fringe areas. that's going to be the location where we're not too far away from that mid 30 degree temperature that will allow some of this to transfer over into snow showers. and we'll watch for that later this morning. downtown so far, it's just been sprinkles and light rain showers. we're at 45 at the airport, a north wind at 8 miles an hour. note the dew point is low with the humidity low. so we're not seeing all of this reach the surface. satellite and radar combined showing there is some heavier banding off to the west that still has 0 to slide over us for the late morning hours. that will be the better chance as you head past 8:00 and 9:00. for some of this to transfer
5:47 am
now, for cincinnati metro and south, i don't think it's a problem at all. in general, locations that see a transfer to wet snowflakes should not amount to much. should not come down too heavy or be too problematic, one or two spots may see briefly heavy window. the ground temperature is so warm, you need intense snow to get any collection on the ground i don't think that's a problem. notice at 2:00, northern and eastern counties seeing wet snowflakes come down. there may be a time period we transition to that. then get into all snow in spots in the northeast counties. past noon, the moisture on the back side of it. the temperatures trying to climb for the day. i don't think as we head past noon we'll see additional snowflakes out there. this afternoon, extra clouds around, a light shower still possible general locations with the potential for snowflakes between 8:00 a.m. and noon. wet flakes mixed in.
5:48 am
we never make it down to the freezing mark. that will discourage accumulation this morning. what's working the system, a northeast wind at the surface, bringing dry, cold air. a low pressure to the southeast pumping in moisture around the back side. both basically combining over the ohio river valley for us in the morning. this afternoon, it's mainly just the clouds around. chilly temperatures. highs only in the low 40s. later on today, heading into sunday, a weak disturbance bypassing us to the southwest. we have low pressure dragging back in moisture from the east. so we don't quite clear the air mass. we may see showers lingering for sunday as well. futurecast tonight and tomorrow, extra clouds, a light shower a potential into tomorrow morning the model wants to squeeze out a flake or two. we should be dry tomorrow with clouds but light showers. high temperature today, 48
5:49 am
this afternoon, we'll recover to around low 40s. extra clouds, rain showers and snow showers, afternoon spotty showers. tonight, 30 for the low. tomorrow, mostly cloudy a couple of passing showers. the moisture is down once we come out of this, sunshine, rain returns thursday into friday. here's saturday morning sports. george: the high school championships are being decided this weekend. wilmington took the floor last night in ohio's division one state semifinal. the hurricane against undefeated lima senior. wilmington's first appearance in the state final four. lima senior were lead by as many as 20. late in the third, wilmington starts a furious comeback. jaren cumberland, a game-high 25 points. wilmington cuts the lead to 3.
