March 1st mid-afternoon update

Happy Monday -

Very busy this weekend around the tri-state and the world.

Police in Mason are looking for the driver that struck a police officer after Sunday services.  Officer Scott Miller was directing traffic when a vehicle came out of the church parking lot and struck him.  They are asking for help to find the driver.  Officer Miller has been released from the hospital.

A highway worker was struck by a vehicle this morning on Interstate 71/75 in Northern Kentucky near the 275 exit.  They were taken to the hospital.  We are waiting an update on their condition.

Two teens are under arrest in Cincinnati and charged with murder.  The male and female 19 year olds are accused of murdering another 19 year man last week and dumping the body at the end of a cul-de-sac.

And in just a few minutes you can see the effect the tsunami had on Hawaii on Saturday.  I waited all day for this video and now you can watch the time lapse in just a click.

And an Oxford man is facing charges after he attack a police officer who was responding to a call for help.  Oxford Police say Caleb Beers attempted to grab an officer's gun.

Boone County Sheriff's Office is continuing to search for the cause of death of a 15 year old whose body was found Sunday morning.  Corey McConnell is following this story today and will have the latest on the FOX19 Evening News at 6:00.

Is there a warming trend in the forecast?

Monday Late Morning Update 

Staying cloudy and dry today, with a high of 36 degrees, staying below our average high of 48 degrees. Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 30's the next couple of days, before a warm up by this coming weekend. Expect a sprinkle or flurry, Tuesday into Wednesday morning. A system will pass to our south and at this point not be a major player in our weather Tuesday into Wednesday but we will still watch the track. Then expect a sun and cloud mix later in the week.

Looking Ahead: Temperatures Near 50 by Sunday
