no snow. >> i'm trying to work off some serious turkey right now. and as soon as i put it into my body, and thank you to our bosses who catered in a phenomenal thanksgiving dinner for all of us from barrister's downtown for all of us. it became like this. i'm seriously considering having you roll me over there to do the forecast. >> i can help. >> that's about how it's going to happen. let's take a look at what's going on as far as tomorrow goes. we're tonight. and this is been par for the course for today. we've had a murky afternoon and that will be the case tonight. the visibilities have gone down to as low as 3 miles at times. as we go through the rest of the night from time to time. those visibilities come and go. if you have any overnight shopping plans that take you out and about across northern ohio be advised of that. we have drizzly and springly areas happening and a southwesterly wind. you can see it barely showing up on the radar.
so some wet roads are a possibility. the big picture shows we're not alone in this. there's a lot of showery weather going on across the northern great lakes region. but the air is colder farther to the west. that will trigger a change in northern ohio late tomorrow. we'll go from rain over to snow in some places. with a rain snow mix in others. that will carry us then into saturday. so into the early morning we go. temperatures in the upper 30s. we won't have to deal with any rain s showers mostly paralleling the lake shore. then that's going to be the trend for the day. if you have plans lakeville out towards madison on the lake and shoreline areas you are going to deal with periodic showers throughout the day tomorrow. the rest of us deal with the fog and drizzle we had throughout the day today. once we get into the afternoon
of these rain showers farther south. that will open up more of lake eerie as well. some lake enhanced rain coming in. this is 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. you're starting to see some of the rain snow mix changing to snow showers. we have possibilities for snow on saturday. most of the secondary will be very light, maybe a coating. while the primary areas could be dealing with an inch to m three if this gets persistent. but showers are a good part of the forecast east on saturday with dry weather west and south. so akron down into dover with the dry conditions for saturday afternoon. and saturday night we start to see all of this winding down as we set up for a beautiful sunday. as far as tomorrow goes we will see foggy and damp conditions for a good part of the day with the rain showers arriving changing to a rain snow
nation forecast we stay in the 40s through saturday with the rain snow mix chance continuing. sunday we dry it out. we have quite a few clouds around and monday late day into tuesday we get a big push of heat all the way into the upper 50s. >> cool. >> yeah getting crazy. but that's because a big surge of moisture is coming along as well. so we will have rain to contend with on tuesday. >> thanks betsy. coming up thanksgiving means football for many of you and lots of if to you missed any or all of the nfl games today or you want to see them again we've got you covered. dave has the highlights next.
and now the kia of bedford sports report. >> it's officially black friday now. which means it's been a long day of football. >> i'm with betsy watched a lot of football and found a way to work as well. >> how about it. >> not a bad deal as we wrap up another thanksgiving of football. again we ask when will the browns be relevant again. when will they play in big games? this sunday is big for the giants. browns trying to avoid 0-16. to answer my question it will happen when they draft better and score points. the last three games ten points, 7 points, 9 points.
much. they're not quitting but it's getting to them. especially the vets you see that clearly. >> it's a tough season. no one likes losing. and you know the browns, we've been losing for a while now. so it's not fun. but we've got to keep fighting. >> yes they do. the browns injury report a bit more crowded than last week. but rg iii is back out there. on a day of thanks h to have another chance. he has a long list of injuries yes but says he won't be thinking about that. >> if you step out on the field and you're thinking about not getting hurt then you're going to get hurt. so i never take that approach. i advise anybody that's playing that's come back from an injury to never take that approach. you know, you can't, some things you can't control. i can't control what happened in the philly game. you know with the guy getting the hit on my shoulder trying to
>> three nfl games today. no andrew lucks for the colts but the steelers had big ben and antonio brown. that's dangerous. the combo connected for three touchdowns. bell had a touchdown, colts had their chances but it got away from them. steelers are now 6-5. redskins the versus the cowboys and the dallas do it again. daq prescott prescott and zeke elliott finally put them away. cowboys win their tenth straight game 31-26 is the final. turkey day in detroit means we get the lions. and those fans, two teams that are battling for the playoffs.
just tied the game and the lions win 16-14. they are in sole possession of first place in the nfc north. we only have two more nights of sleep before we can finally watch the game. ohio state currently a six and a half point favorite of michigan. i might not be going out on a limb here. but i believe the barrett. if he can lead a balanced attack the buck eyes win. >> something bigger than myself. i say this all the time. bigger than myself, bigger than the people in the locker room. buckeye nation. part of the football teams in the past. that's bigger than ourselves and responsibility to go out there and win a game. so i think that's, i think that's all that matters. >> today was senior tackle a
the senior buckeyes hit a tackling dummy one last time in their final practice before michigan. 21 high school seniors will experience their final home game. everything about this week is special when it comes to this game. and i cannot wait for saturday. >> i was talking to my cousin today who's an ohio state student currently. so they're just hoping that changing some of those traditions, >> i heard they might do that. i'm sure a lot of former students are upset about that.
