i'm mostly ok with it i think that it's a cutthroat business and he wasn't producing the results but i really like paul rhoads as a person. >> i think he played his part at his program but i do think no one's really surprised about the change and i think it's going to , be exciting to see what happens because of it. elizabeth: right now we're asking you in a kcci now poll do you agree with iowa state's decision to fire coach paul rhoads. right now we will look at the results. what we are hearing from the people have voted in our poll, 44% say yes they do agree. the 6% say -- 56% say they do not agree. you can vote as well by calling 200-1508 or by voting online at kcci.com or on twitter and our facebook page. be sure to stay with kcci for the very latest on iowa state football on air and online at kcci.com. kcci will be there today as athletic director jamie pollard and paul rhoads are expected to speak to the media.

>> this is iowa's news leader. this is kcci 8 news this morning with eric hanson, elizabeth klinge, meteorologist kurtis gertz and right now coverage with shaina humphries. elizabeth: welcome back. 5:13 now. our viewers have been sending
in a whole lot of photos from the first big snow storm of the season. check out this one from oskaloosa. that is a pretty impressive snowman.
eric: and of course dogs generally love the snow. here's one out in
waukee that looks like he's been running around enjoying the winter weather. and these guys are keeping warm with their holiday sweaters. the whole flock of them. please let me in. metinka, it was a nice weekend to get out. metinka: it was beautiful. it was not overly cold. the kids sure had a lot of fun. the trend will continue. we are starting off with 32 degrees. watch for re-freeze across eastern iowa. there could be a few slippery spots early today. dress in layers. a little bit on the cool side. wind chills in the mid-20's. we will notice some dripping out there. sunshine is on the way today. near 42 degrees. warmer temps are on the way as we head toward thanksgiving. we will have a chance of rain.
bit chilly toward black friday and the weekend. shaina: while we're looking at some warmer days coming in central iowa, california is gearing up for a very wet winter. scientists say an already huge el nino in the pacific is still getting bigger. experts say el nino's usually bring a lot of rain to southern california but this one is so big it will hit the entire state. and while this may seem like a good thing for a state that's been in a drought for several years el nino's come at a cost. a smaller one that hit in 1997 caused half a billion dollars in damage and killed 17 people. and right now officials say the e-coli outbreak that hit the pacific northwest earlier this month may have actually been more widespread than originally thought. the cdc says chipotle caused 45 cases of the illness in six states. those states are washington , oregon, california, minnesota, new york and ohio. cdc officials say a single ingredient is likely the culprit but they haven't identified it yet.
eric: turning to sports news now the iowa hawkeyes keep on , climbing in the rankings. sunday's new ap poll puts the hawks at third in the nation. that's tied for iowa's highest ranking in the kirk ferentz era. iowa now only trails clemson and alabama in that poll and their 40 to 20 win saturday over purdue gave the hawkeyes the big ten west division title. >> we've just been pushing away and working hard. if we do get down in the fourth quarter, i am confident that we will come back. >> speculations about stuff. we have done a good job all season. trying to improve and get better. eric: the rankings that really matter though? the college football playoff rankings. those will be updated tomorrow night. last week iowa came in at number five, but with ohio state losing this weekend, it is possible
the top four which is where they'll need to be to get a bid to the college football playoffs. elizabeth: while we wait to see if iowa will get a bid to the college football playoffs uni football already got some good news. the panthers were picked as an at-large team for the upcoming fcs divison one playoffs. uni will host eastern illinois this coming saturday at the uni-dome. kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. if the panthers win they'll move on to the second round of playoffs and face 5th seeded portland state. also at the uni-dome high school football playoffs wrap up today. the class 1a championship game between iowa city regina and western christian will kick off at 11:00 a.m. mount vernon and spirit lake will fight for the class 2a championship at 2:00 p.m. and tonight the 4a title game between dowling catholic and cedar rapids kennedy kicks off at 7:00. look for live reports from cedar falls on kcci at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00. today's championship games were originally supposed to be played last friday but were postponed

holiday season you might have to pay a lot more than retail price. ipad pro keyboards and pencil stylus's sold out quickly from apple, and there's a four to five week wait for them to be restocked. buyers are re-selling them on ebay for as much as $650. that is six times more than their retail value. elizabeth: black friday is just a few days away and this year you might be thinking about buying a cell phone for your kid for christmas. eric: but experts say there are some things to consider before buying your child their first phone. first, there's no magic number when it comes to age. just because your child's friends got cell phones at age 13 doesn't mean yours has to. instead consider the needs and behaviors of each child. elizabeth: next be open about what the phone is supposed to be used for. set clear rules and consequences if they use it inappropriately. eric: finally think about what example you are setting for your kids.
looking at your screens, your kids will likely follow in your footsteps. elizabeth: easy to get caught up on it. got to put it down. we are going to get over to metinka. metinka: pack up the snow gear. we still have a lot of snow. that is where we have the most problems on the roads. take your time this morning. watch for any refrozen spots. temps are falling into the 20's in the north. 27 in ames. not overly cold. we are waking up with clear skies. a system that was bringing a fluke -- a few flurries. otherwise, it is going to be a good travel day across much of the reason -- much of the region. we will have melting conditions followed by another day of quiet weather. as we head towards wednesday, that will be changing.
