12:20 pm
so, we should start to gradually cut this lake-effect off as we get deeper into the afternoon. partly to mostly cloudy skies, depending on your location. it's almost mostly sunny right now. downtown it's beautiful. 29 will be your forecast high temperature for today. a little breezy, so probably going to feel even cooler than that. we have had wind-chills throughout the day in the teens. so, bundle up if you are about to head to lunch and your evening commute, you probably will be bundled up out the door. 23 will be your overnight low. mostly cloudy skies tonight. no rain if you have plans tonight, you aren't going to get rained on. you aren't going to have to deal with any snow. we are done with cold stuff, as we get into the weekend. change. we go from 29 today to 45 for a high tomorrow. 57 on sunday, so, almost a 30-degree difference between now and the end of the weekend.
12:21 pm
right back into the 50s on tuesday. and then right back down into the 30s wednesday into thursday. wednesday thursday, by the way, march. and we are back in the low 30s. so, i knew we would pay for that unusually warm winter we have had so far. we will pay for it early in march. right? we will be seeing some snow showers by wednesday. but, no snow this weekend. weekend actually looks fantastic. tomorrow. partly sunny and breezy on sunday, but in the afternoon, we will likely cloud up as rain starts to approach from the west. that rain will move in sunday night. it will likely mix with a little bit of snow before moving out throughout the morning on monday. now, this morning, we did not have a chance for wintry mix in the forecast by the morning commute on monday. now, it looks like we may have to deal with a little wintry weather early monday morning. most likely a mix of rain and snow. i knew you probably don't want
12:22 pm
commute. right? because it's friday. so, you probably just focus on the weekend, but of course this is your first alert that you may have to drive through a little mix early monday. stay tuned as we continue to fine tune that forecast. it looks like a bigger system, guys, will bring us rain tuesday night transitioning over to snow on wednesday. the second day of march. meteorlogical spring. >> "q": we are still getting three days of good weather. >> samantha: the weekend's going to be great. >> laura: that's almost 60 . who knows? maybe it will even hit 60. >> samantha: southwest wind. could happen.

12:27 pm
appearing to be sleeping or disinterested. for months, this community listened to testimony that led to his conviction. now, with the gall and disdain he displayed in court, sowell is asking the ohio supreme court for another trial. he claims he didn' t get a fair trial because of intense media coverage. why, in the name of justice is he being allowed to drudge up the heart-wrenching details and horrors of his murderous acts? cleveland has paid a high enough cost in pain and treasure, more than 500-thousand dollars in public defender bills. remember, he was convicted of killing eleven women, raping and assaulting even more. cuyahoga county prosecutors call sowell' s latest move " gamesmanship." if his appeal is allowed to go
