5:01 am
m mark hayes. thanks for joining us. let' s get right over to randi for a look at your forecast. randi: we are heading into the low to mid 70' s, which will make today one of the warmest days of the year so far. there is a severe thunderstorm warning in portions of missouri. that will be an issue for chicago for the daytime hours. it should be weakening as it moves in and no problems around midnight or so. we are starting out with dry conditions with the potential to maybe see some patchy fog developing. currently 55 degrees in oxford. 55 degrees in florence. most places nice and mild to
5:02 am
temperatures climbed quickly towards lunchtime. the high today, 74. about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. no worries during the daytime today. a rumble could wake you up tonight. but first we check the roads. kyla: we have those lanes open on 75. the rolling roadblock that we mentioned yesterday. through downtown things are crystal-clear. there is one car from columbia parkway and 471. 275 on the northern edge of the loop near the 75 interchange. 75 is why open for you -- is
5:03 am
updated but no problems to start right now. lisa: sounds good. is here for ohio voters. mark: as usual, this is a key have team coverage as voters head to the polls. we begin with andrew setters, live at the board of elections, with a look at the race on both sides. good morning. andrew: today is make or break he' s hung in there without a single primary win so far. a loss in ohio would almost certainly spell the end of his campaign. but ohio is still too close to call. polls have bounced back and forth, showing a real fight between john kasich and donald trump. we' ve seen both candidates very active in ohio over the past few days, an indication trump feels like he' s got florida locked, so he can focus on the other big prize on the line today. ohio. polls show a dead heat or a slight edge for kasich in ohio.
5:04 am
it' s difficult to say just what that lead may be. some polls show a double-digit lead over bernie sanders. others show a tighter race and both sides have been working to for democrats, it' s not winner take all, so a close race means a close split in the delegates awarded from ohio. mr. sanders: a few weeks ago people were saying, bernie sanders winning ohio? no way. well, guess what. we have a good vote tomorrow, people come out, we' re going to win here in ohio. mrs. clinton: i am so worried about our country and what could happen if we don' t band together to elect a president who can represent all of america. andrew: we' ll know how it all shakes out tonight. the polls close at 7:30 and the results should start rolling in here at the hamilton county board of elections shortly after. reporting live, andrew setters,

5:06 am
the polls showing are a tight race in ohio, and the republican front-runner was back in the buckeye state on monday, telling his voters he is the right choice. mr. trump: your governor is absentee. and listen to this, because i know. because i was there. i go back because i work. i still have job. you got to do your job. mark: a new poll from quinnipiac university shows trump and kasich are tied with ohio voters. lisa: as you head out to cast your ballot today, wlwt is leading the way with what you can expect at the polls this primary election day. wlwt news 5' s dan griffin is live with the ballot confusion you should be mindful of. bring us up to date. dan: good morning. polls open at 6:30 this morning. about 45% expected here in hamilton county. there are some things to keep in mind as you head to your polling location. the republican ballot this year has two spots for you to mark your choice for presidential candidate.
