Yes and that we get sleet reported just about everywhere. Everywhere really everywhere you know what they're accurate or yet. Added in a tiny little itty bitty -- and all -- -- it's what would be considered like we can't cut and and to see that -- through the morning time -- -- over a little -- still some snow flurries north of the lakes and areas of -- -- Tammany parish taint the Washington and that's why those three Pierce's Washington. Change in saint Tammany have canceled school for their public schools today yeah. Yet living yet and joining in on that and it isn't out -- great and those of the four big school district and our shores said you know what we're not gonna have school today. And what are conditions can do is we go through the morning -- -- -- -- snow and who gets no I invoke the -- us know. And. Can't words yeah knowing -- body and that text messages in exactly most of the snow will be cut up north but by twelve north by -- queries may mix in at around Covington Indiana -- areas. But the farther north you are the most likely it's -- because that's where its coldest temperatures around thirty or 32 degrees that's off the lake. Where you're from 35 in New Orleans to 37 at home at that that's where were most likely going to see that light sleet and some light rain -- what happened today. -- the temperatures will gradually start to warm up a little bit so some of that snow will become more -- like treatments some light rain. So -- chances will -- a little bit later today that we still could season's -- or even some light rain and farther north even from light snow all the way through the afternoon and evening. Wow yeah -- all day and all night at the moisture is still with this at least about 6 PM there's officially a winter weather advisory for areas north of the lake. Through six. Action are right so there you go folks that's what's going on today a book about tomorrow.

Jack Ryan shatter recruit and frozen public tells me frozen may have another big week. Across the country. To -- Steve Geller is in with sports who got a Pro Bowl this weekend let's all get excited about the yeah. Do you think these changes again helped make the pro ball more interesting as in general or do you think it's a last ditch effort to try to save a dying game I think that definitely trying to save the dying game right now but I think what they have done at least will spark people's interest. Through at least to -- and initially and then with the seats the same old. Game that means. Absolutely nothing to anyone that. By halftime I'm sure most people -- now -- what we -- -- from -- sportscaster and every WL happy Friday happy Friday gave him happy Friday to you out there we are now nine days away from Super Bowl 48. And Denver Broncos returned to practice field for the first time since winning the AFC championship. Quarterback Peyton Manning is one and one in Super Bowl appearances. And is focused on earning that coveted second championship ring this is why you you know worked hard all season for this opportunity so. There's no question it's a big deal and it is very fresh requires that we're. The Cleveland Browns last team to field its vacant head coaching position have hired buffalo defensive coordinator Mike the team ending a nearly four week search. He says he's not concerned that his successor lasted only one season. Sometimes that the cockiness of a coach but all battle myself and again I didn't wanna get involved and then back away from a job because of a lack of perceived security. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has undergone groin surgery and is expected to spend the next six weeks recovery. He rushed for 1266. Yards and fourteen games this season but missed two games in December due to a sprained right foot. Tomorrow's the Senior Bowl now here's -- about eight there with the latest on that game.

Where -- the pelicans -- Detroit Pistons 1053 WWL spam. I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning look at sports pelicans have lost nine of their last ten games. Channel and chances of picking up a win tonight industry Detroit's kind of struggled through -- -- As well having had the best run they do you have. A lot of length on the roster which is kind of scary to this team right now down. One of their big guys in Ryan Anderson also still without point guard. -- holiday. Anthony Davis has to be. It's beyond stellar every night right now for this ball club and I think he's gonna have a tough go against a -- little Alexander yet so bottom line -- a list. I don't see the pelicans come with a win tonight I don't see him coming away with a win on most nights right now ansari does that in all the injuries to -- and the problems they had before the injuries snapping a close games even when they add. At every exactly they Wear full staff can still had problems after halftime and that's that's from just seems to have linger from last season. I'm well we'll let you -- act like you.
