knocked out power near san diego. heavy rain and flooding even closed roads around california. the latest on the storms next. >> samantha: well for ohio, el nino typically means warmer and drier. and that's exactly what we are getting today. let's take a live look outside. cleveland oh, you are looking so good right now. 43 is our current temperature. can't beat that on a january day. right? i'll tell you when all the warmth comes to a screeching

>> samantha: the time is now 12:17. and just a beautiful day out there. our average high temperatures for this time of the year, a little bit closer to 34 . we are already warmer than that. pretty much everywhere. it's 42 in akron. 43 right now in cleveland. still sitting at about 40 in wooster and one of our cooler spots dover new philly, upper 30s. even that's not that bad for this time of the year. we've got sunny skies to the south. the farther north you go, a little bit more in the way of higher level cloud cover. but these clouds are not producing rain. we will stay dry for to the rest of the afternoon into tonight. but it's tomorrow that rain here it is. if you look down toward the mississippi river valley, the southern end of it, you can see there are showers here and these extend all the way up into the central plains. that rain headed in our friday. for today, no problems at all.
lots of sunshine but clouds will thicken up for tonight. they just aren't going to produce rain. we do stay dry and we will fall back to about 29. by early tomorrow morning. highs tomorrow despite the showers right back in the 40s. we will stay pretty mild even through the start of the weekend. but rain moving in. we will say cleveland mid-to-late morning. but as you go further off to the south and west, down around bucyrus, we will be seeing showers first and then it will all
head in our direction here along the lake shore. tomorrow night. we may have a few lingering light showers or more along the lines of drizzle throughout the day on saturday. but no more steady rain until saturday night into sunday. our temperature trend is also pretty interesting. 44 tomorrow. 52. sunday. we will start off in the 40s. we fall into the 30s through the afternoon. so, any rain that's around on sunday is going to transition
and we think that transition should
happen pretty early. so, we might even see some light accumulations on your sunday. maybe a little bit of snow out there when you wake up on monday morning. and there is a chance, guys for at least some light lake-effect temperatures are going to be really cold. even for this time of the year. 24 for a high on monday. tuesday, not too far off the mark for january, 31. but you got to look at 18 your forecast high. >> "q": my eyes are focused on that right now. i'm loving that 52 on saturday. >> laura: i'm loving it, too. i'm living for that one. y'all can have the 18, you know. [laughter] >> samantha: we can't avoid it forever. >> laura: snow flurries all all right. check this out. a television personality says he does a lot of dirty jobs but robbing a bank is not one of them. oregon police posted an image of a bank robber online and people
commenting that it looked like dirty jobs host mike rowe. i totally see it. rowe says he's taller than the suspect and says he can prove that he wasn't in oregon at the time. he was in kansas. >> "q": look at that face. can that face commit a crime? >> laura: oh, my gosh. >> "q": i love rowe. >> laura: he's hilarious. he does a great job. i don't think needs to rob any banks or do any kind of crime. >> "q": i'm sure he's financially set. >> laura: i think he's in a pretty good spot. but that does look like him. >> "q": speaking of look-alikes check out this one. who does this look like to you? i'm talking about the lady right now. if you said taylor swift, you would be wrong. that's actually somebody's grandmother. now, this reddit user shared an old pic last week and the pictures of her grandmother and she admits, you know, it does look like the pop star. but her grandfather also kind of looks like hugh hefner and i think the grandpa looks more like hugh hefner than the grandma looks like taylor swift personally.
>> laura: you know they say everybody has a double somewhere. >> "q": yeah, yeah. >> laura: i don't know who mine is. someone said you look like denzel washington. >> "q": i'll take that. >> laura: there's still more to come at noon. denzel. >> "q": yeah, right, right. but first, here's a chance to win a two-pack of tickets to the ohio r.v. super show going on right now through sunday at the i.x. center right by the airport. call 1-866-464-woio. that it's 866-464-9646.
>> laura: well star wars the force awakens is still breaking records at the box office bringing a galaxy from far far away to a new generation. >> yeah, but this next clip proves that the original flicks aren't too shabby, either. do you know who luke skywalker's father is? me. >> "q": this little girl we are about to show you had no clue. check out her reaction. [laughter] >> "q": she was speechless when luke's father. though. luckily her dad was recording
empire strikes back came out 35 years before way before she was even thought of. i think that might have been my reaction, too. we will see you tomorrow. i am sam rutigliano, former head coach of the cleveland browns. wisdom is the daughter of experience. the browns are once again ignoring the past and writing the same script. they must analyze the effects of past decisions and engage a different model. sashi brown has no experience, yet he has been given the title of director of football operations with the final say over the roster and a role in interviewing coaching candidates. hiring the coach first will prevent the team from getting the most qualified general manager candidates. look at the history and the analytics of hall-of-famer bill polian, gm and architect of indianapolis' super bowl teams led by peyton manning.
four-time super bowl team which was anchored by hall-of-famer jim kelly. another example is hall-of-fame gm ron wolf, architect of oakland and green bay's title teams which were anchored by mvp's jim plunkett and brett favre. the browns must have a field of dreams vision. " if you build it, he will come." talents like jon gruden, who is an ohio guy and super bowl coach, or bill cowher, who played for the browns and is also a super bowl coach, could be enticed to cleveland if power brokers like polian or wolf were here. new england, green bay, denver - the list goes on for franchises that rely on tried and true nfl analytics to win. this is the direction we should go: hire the general manager, who then hires a director of player personnel and the two of them hire the head coach. let's find experienced decision-
