there. it is a chilly night across the region. temperatures are hovering just shy of 40 degrees. it makes it feel like it is closer to below freezing. it feels like it is 30 outside with that north wind at 12. that storm system from last night, that is pulling away from the area and in its wake, we' ve got this massive cloud cover that has been advancing across the area. this guarantees that tomorrow, we will probably be dealing with a cloudy and seasonably cold february ohio valley days. tonight, cloudy skies. with the cloud cover tonight, temperatures won' t drop off as much as it could. highs tomorrow with all of that cloud cover won' t budge much. as a matter of fact, we will be lucky tomorrow if many of us creep above freezing by a couple of degrees out there. starting to look at futurecast,
they are not going anywhere in the day tomorrow. if anything, late in tomorrow afternoon, there may be a peak of sunlight. this optimism really doesn' t work. after dark, we will start to clear things out. tomorrow night will be even colder. then it looks like a nice-looking friday for the end of the week and a nice look heading into the weekend is temperatures begin to rebound before they crash early next week. for tonight, look for a low of 28 right here in the metro area beneath those cloudy skies. tomorrow, expect mostly cloudy skies, a cold breeze. this icon even has too much sun out there for us tomorrow. here is a look at your day planner. lunchtime, barely above freezing or at that freezing mark. here is a look at your seven-day forecast, down the 20' s for tomorrow night and then we downs back into the 40' s. low 50' s on sunday and that it

new set of recruits for you see -- for uc' s football team. the bearcats had a few wins and a few misses and it did not fare so well locally with just one recruit from greater cincinnati. it is not that we don' t go out there and try to recruit them, they say. it just the simple fact that we finish second, third, or sometimes forth on these guys and they want to go other places to play. tuberville will probably be more than a little interested in the
the 12 is an expected to vote on expanding but it is expected to be a topic. i can say with confidence that uc has worked very hard behind the scenes to convince the power five conferences that the bearcats and the city are already. this was the scene a high school all over the area. players were signing for college scholarships and some programs in the midwest pulled plenty of talent out of cincinnati. we have a complete list and slide shows of all of the area high school athletes that sign the dotted line today. david fulcher welcomed in his first recruiting class in cincinnati christian was adding football this year to complete -- to compete in the naia division 2 this year in the kentucky athletic conference. mike: i love how you guys do the whole thing and you commit to
