the north onto west boulevard. the main line is also going to be restricted to one lane. odot has been telling us for a little bit now that there could be some delays, most likely there will be. so you want to pack some patience today, expect some delays, and if you can, you might want to avoid the area completely. they're also encouraging riders and drivers to take the rta to just k free. so it's a story we've been on since the very beginning. we'll have all the latest on air and online. back to you. >> tia: sia, thank you so much. we're waiting to hear from the pro football hall of fame how they plan to refund the fans for the hall of fame game. it was canceled after the field was deemed unsafe to play on. it didn't react well to the
6:06 am
stadium and not the one they usually have. they got it from the new orleans. it was in the superdome last year which was, of course, indoors. that may have something to do with it. many fans, though, left disappointed. >> you drive eight hours to see some football, and it's kind of disappointing. we wanted to see some live action. >> this may have added to the disappointment. fans were the last to know about the cancellation. the hall of fame president made that announcement right at about 8:00 p.m hours before. >> laura: a popular water park in kansas city, kansas remains closed this morning as investigators try to piece together what led to a tragic accident on the park's main attraction. brian webb has the latest. >> reporter: a day after the tragic death of caleb schwab at kansas city's scrlitterbahn water park, they have yet to determine what had.

6:08 am
as the entire park are closed pending the investigation. brian webb, cleveland 19. >> laura: we did some checking and found the latest injury statistics on water parks. the most recent numbers we found are from 2010 when the average annual injury rate was about 6 injuries for every 100,000 children. another study found the most common type of injuries were injuries to the head and face but only 1.5% of the injuries >> tia: we will continue to ask questions today about an injury at cedar point. this is what we know. a maintenance worker is recovering from injuries he received from a fall from the gemini roller coaster. witnesses did tell us he fell from the ride to the ground below. a rep for the amusement park only told us the worker had a nonlife-threatening injury. cuyahoga community college

6:15 am
in 2010 appears to mention the scientist. iranian officials hanged him yesterday for allegedly giving information to the cia. >> laura: we continue our "money-saving monday" series. this time we take our savings to the skies. new data from the feds shows airlines make 25% of their money from baggage fees along. that means you could go online and think you're snagging a great deal on a flight. once you pay for all the luggage, that great deal gone. here are a few strategies to help you save at the airport. if you travel a lot and shop for a new credit card, look for one that offers airline credits. some american express and citi cards do. baggage fees vary widely, so make sure and compare the fees when you book your ticket. another approach experts suggest is just shipping that luggage to your destination ahead of time, which sounds expensive to me.
6:16 am
>> tia: i guess. >> samantha: just drive if you can. sometimes it's less of a pain. >> laura: drive to rio. >> samantha: if it's a short trip. there's so many ways to travel less stressful. >> laura: i think train cross-country would be cool, too. you get to see everything. >> samantha: takes you about six years to get there. if you're out and about this morning on this monday, your coer good. morning commute, you get the green light and we're dry and no weather-related issues and your evening commute looks fantastic weather-wise. of course, laura will help us out with the morning drive in a moment. she'll have a check of your actual traffic happening outside. i can assure you that the weather on the roads will be perfect. here it is. this is a live look outside. what a gorgeous sunrise this morning. temperatures are in the 60s and
6:17 am
about 62 in cleveland with calm wind. isn't this wonderful? this is a nice shot here as that sun comes up. official sunrise time today is about 6:30. coming up a minute later than it did yesterday and setting a minute earlier. we're losing a little daylight this time of the year, but still plenty of daylight to enjoy it. i try to go to bed every day at like 5:00 p.m., and it is light until like 8:30, 9:00, right? so we do have a lot of daylight. it's just weta minute by minute. here's what you can expect today. 74 at 9:00 in the morning, about 81 midday and then 85 is your high for today. partly to mostly sunny and no rain in the forecast. we're totally dry all day and all night, too. this evening looks wonderful. you have outdoor plans tonight. maybe take a long walk after work or a long run. 82 at 7:00, about 78 at 9:00, and then by 11:00 tonight we're
6:18 am
mostly clear skies overnight, but we have more cloud cover around for tomorrow. our rain chance goes up tomorrow as well. here's the hour-by-hour chance of rain. notice that after 3:00 scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely. we'll be contending with those potentially into the night, so tomorrow is a first alert weather day. every day after tomorrow is also a first alert weather day. i know this can look a little bit alarming. i don't want you to think this every minute. it's going to be so hot and humid we will have daily chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms but not all-day rain events. laura. >> laura: we are taking to the roadways now. looks like a lot of green out there this morning, but i promise you a lot of orange, too. watch out for all those orange barrels and construction workers. they're all over the place. they like the earlier hours in the day. can you blame them when we get
6:19 am
out on the asphalt, it doesn't feel good. give them a break and move over and share the roads with them as they work hard so we have safe roads to drive on. safe roads are looking good this morning. 271 northbound and southbound all the way from the county line from cuyahoga and summit counties all the way up to 480 at miles road is going to be a huge project going on over the next few years. now this week you can expect to see intermittent lane closures now lanes will close. this will last for years, and it is a huge project. also, caution to you. disabled vehicle on i-90 westbound right near the split. it's currently blocking the center lane there, so it could be a delay for those headed westbound, not eastbound. >> tia: got it. no major delays out there overall? >> laura: not yet. >> tia: people should appreciate that on a monday. got to get there on time, right?
