Another winter wallop

Our latest winter storm brings snow, colder temps, and more school closings and delays this morning.  Western Kentucky has the higher snow totals this time around, but colder air has certainly moved in across the region.  Byron says we're not out of the woods just yet, as another winter storm has its sights set on the tri-state Tuesday.

Slick commute

The icy conditions have claimed a life as a car collides with a snow plow in on US 231 in Ohio County Sunday. We'll update that story. Road conditions vary from county to county, and we'll be live on both sides of the river to see how things are shaping up for the morning commute.  We'll get reports from law enforcement as well, and update all the closings and delays on air and on line.

Philip Seymour Hoffman remembered

"He was too great and we're too shattered." That's what director Mike Nichols is saying about Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead Sunday in his Greenwich Village apartment in New York. He was 46. Two officials say Hoffman was found with a needle in his arm and heroin was found nearby. Hoffman was still in the process of shooting the two part "The Hunger Games" sequel.

Super Seahawks

Russell Wilson tossed a pair of touchdowns and the Seattle Seahawks won a blowout Super Bowl by dominating the mistake-prone Denver Broncos 43-8 to win Super Bowl 48. It's the first NFL title for the Seahawks, and Seattle's first major sports championship since the old NBA Sonics won it all in 1979.

Olympic countdown

And we'll get the latest on preparations for the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, now just four days away.

So stay warm and safe and we'll see you on Sunrise.
