but we're already tracking your next weather maker. here is your first alert that we have showers on the way. and this is why low pressure out of the southern plains, that's going to drag a cold front through here late tonight into tomorrow and that will provide the lifting mechanism that we need to see showers. unfortunately it doesn't have a lot of moisture with it, so we're not going to see a ton of rain, but there is a chance for those showers late tonight. i'll time everything out for you, and we'll talk about the week ahead coming up in just a few minutes. jon, how are we looking on the roads this morning. >> let's talk about the morning ahead, shall we. it is a quiet morning. traffic wise anyway, weather wise too as sam just told you. the roadways going along just fine. we're up to speed. we're dry. we don't have to deal with sun glare, don't have to deal with icy spots inbound. the west side, citizenship -- 60 miles an hour, 480 as well,

this story for us. nichole, that facebook doesn't even exist anymore. >> the facebook page was taken down last year at this time. it had almost 180,000 followers. that's second only to the new york police department. oliver wood posted candid pro police conservative opinions on popular stories from kanye west to legalizing marijuana, but now he's in the headlines for something different. alleged misconduct against a female police officer. today oliver is expected to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges. in late 2014 officer crystal casternine filed a complaint with. she said she was subjected to repeat touching by the chief over a two year period. oliver was suspended by the department for two weeks and then resigned the following month saying it was a medical retirement for post traumatic stress disorder stemming from his 20 plus years in law enforcement.

>> we will. >> let's take a look at how we're doing out there this morning. that big storm, that's moved out. hey, that's great news for our friends who are trying to dig out. it's going to take loof time. a lot of schools closed on the east coast. i would be willing to bet some of these schools especially here in the virginias may not be going in some of the areas for the rest of the week. they have a lot of clean-up to do. here at home it's been smooth sailing. we had a little snow flying around saturday. yesterday was gorgeous. today really nice weather too. we start off for the most part in the 20s. we just dropped down to about 19.com. 25 in mansfield this morning. cleveland, good morning to you, we're at 26. and as i zoom you in here, across the metro, a lot of upper 20s. lakewood, 28. 28 in parma as well.
walked out the door was it really does not feel as cold. a week ago today we had some of you in the single digits with negative wind chills. this is a lot better. your school day forecast. 27 at the bus stop. lunchtime, 37 and then for the ride home we're in the upper 30 and is lower 40s. partly sunny skies today and a little on the breezy side, but overall 100% chance of outdoor recess today. we'll drop back to about 39 tonight. so notice the numbers don't really move much this evening. it will be breezy tone as our next system moves in from the west and we do have a chance for a few light rain showers as well. this is after 8:00 tonight. so if you have dinner plans tonight, you're okay. but as we take you through future view here you can see that the rain starts to move in from the west after 8:00 and then hangs around through the early morning hours of tomorrow. so as you walk out the door tomorrow morning you might be seeing a few light rain showers. now the temperature tomorrow is going to drop through the day, so
around, as many as 7:00 in the morning on the model, may switch over to a mix of rain and snow and then eventually in the afternoon all snow. but the thing with this system is that it's pretty starved for moisture, so we're not going to see a ton of rainfall we're not going to see a ton of snow. it's not going to rain or snow on you every minute tomorrow, but we will have some moisture out there from time to time throughout the morning and into the evening as well. now, wednesday, that lake takes over. it's not frozen yet, so we have a chance for some lake effect snow showers. toll little to no accumulation, but wednesday maybe a dusting for some of you, especially out east. thursday a break. friday another chance for some lake effect snow showers and then the weekend. looking good right now. it does like like we may see a few showers, but the chance for now is very small. i'm loving those numbers. what about you, john? >> you bet. hey, you knoww what?
bumper to bumper chrome to chrome and and stop-and-go and brake lights. none of that applies this morning. it's all very quiet out there. thank you for joining us at 21 minutes after 6:00. we appreciate that. the news is an easy go across 480, up 77, across 71. 176, the jennings is in good shape. 90 at east 140th looking good. i mean, folks are picking lanes and moving along at the speed that they care to. traffic getting a little shicker -- it always looks that way when headlights head east on 480 and taillights west in and out on 77 looking good as well. rta is running on time. the airport may be delayed but the buses are on time this morning. no problems out there on the roadways. we'll turn it over to brian and tia. >> a lot of people have been giving me a hard time about that video. >> yes. >> of the snowboarder going down the street in new york city. >> someone called. >> good morning to the caller who
>> thank you for agreeing with me. >> that's the only reason he's saying thank you. if you didn't agree with him. >> that's not true. i love all our viewers. >> i do too. they're awesome. thanks for calling. i'll try to lighten up. time now 6:22. >> grandma. >> he's talking go me being the grandma. >> after a plowing debut the cavaliers back at it tonight at the q. >> a possible late entry into the 2016 presidential race.
move last. the cavs fired head coach david blatt on friday, promoted assistant coach lue. they lost 96-83 to the chicago bulls. all right, the stage is set, it's denver and carolina in super bowl 50. over the next two weeks leading up to the big game in san francisco look for continuing coverage right here on cleveland 19. >> go panthers. >> i just want to see a good game. i don't care who wins. >> four buckeyes on that team. >> they do. and they all played well yesterday. >> denver has three. i just picked. >> buckeyes everywhere. >> i know. time now is 6:26. a former police chief known for his residents on facebook now faces a judge for some criminal charges. >> and it's been about three weeks since k9 jethro died on duty in canton.

>> good morning, it's january 25th, i'm tia using. >> i'm brian duffy fee. >> 40 degrees in january, really? >> meteorologist sam roberts is here with some pretty good january news, guess. >> 40s today, a little sunshine out there. a lot better than what our friends on the east coast have been dealing with. they've been snowed in. but here at home we've been pretty much smooth sailing since last week. we want to take you to the big weather stories. today it will be all about that good weather, but we have a cold front coming in from our west and that's going to bring us a little rain tonight and maybe a wintery mix for tomorrow. but certainly nothing like what our friends out to the east have seen. it's pretty quiet here this morning. we've got the cloud cover, but these clouds will not produce any rainfall we're going to stay dry for the whole daylight hour timeframe we're dry. but again, tonight we do have a chance for some showers.
for late january, it's 26 in cleveland. good morning to you out in elyria, 24 is our current temperature. 22wooster. feels like january out there. but later today we actually go above average. 38 by 1:00 in the afternoon and then as i mentioned, highs today in the lower 40s, not bad, but you have to enjoy it while it lasts, because it's going to be a lot cooler starting tomorrow. we'll talk about that in just a moment. for now let's get a check of the roads. jon, how are we looking it. >> sam, i have to tell you, you have always been way above average in our book. believe me. especially on your birthday. happy birthday. all right. easy go this morning. nothing doing on the roadways, everybody is moving along at speed. we're coming across 90 from the west side. up 71, across 480. 60 or better and a lot of people are doing better than that, because it is just dry out there. dead man's curve on the shore way
49, 50 miles an hour day, an easy go. here's the inbound traffic. this is outbound on 77. look how sparse the it's downed traffic is. that's the taillights you see and nobody getting off at east 30th. things have been very quiet out here. no accidents, to no broken downs, a very easy go so far. we'll turn things over to brian and tia. >> a police chief who made a name for himself outside of social media. >> his radio show is now under fire. david oliver was accused of harassing his coworkers last time this year. >> cleveland nichole has the latest in his case. >> oliver will be in a courtroom today where he's expected to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges. back in 2014 officer crystal casterline filed a complaint saying she was subjected to touching and
chief over a two year period. oliver was suspended by the department for two weeks. at the time when he used the department's facebook page for his popular posts, he wrote this. being the accountable fellow i am, i fully accept the punishment and apologize for anyone impacted by my failure to adhere to follow the rules. he goes on to say, no one is above the rules and that i have learned a great deal from this experience and i will be a better chief and a stronger administrator when i return. however, oliver would end up leaving the department for what he called medical retirement for post traumatic stress disorder stemming from his 20 plus years in law enforcement. his facebook posts were taken down, but the brim field police department does still have a facebook page. he will be in court for that court today, so keep it tuned to cleveland 19 for the latest on this story. >> smoke restrictions possibly
the health and human services and planning to discuss a ban on the sale of those flavored tobacco products. this would mean it could only be sold in retail tobacco shops. last month the sale of cigarettes to people under the age of 21 was completely banned by the city and the city by 2017 will hire only nonsmokers. >> in cleveland the five suspects charged in the connection with the murder of ramon burnett will be in court today. the 5-year-old boy was killed last september. police say the little boy was playing outside when he was killed in a drive-by shooting. >> well, cleveland 19 new yorker is it is only reporter in houston, attention, with canton police ryan davis. >> he sadly lost his police dog jethro earlier this month, but he'll chews a new partner today and is expected to bring him home tomorrow. cleveland 19q mccray joins him and, q, we're told these k9 officers proceed a unique

made it out to new york city and now a few scheduled later on too. also most new york city arrive always into hopkins are canceled. sam? >> some headaches there for folks about. the good news is on the east coast conditions have majorly improved. it's just that they're in the digging out process, you know, so that's why they can't get planes in or out, but the forecast for today in new york, d.c., a lot better in terms of the weather at least. we're sorry if your flight got canceled. hopefully within the coming days things will only be getting better. i'll have your local forecast straight ahead. >> next the east coast snowstorm was no laughing matter, but there are some pretty funny viral videos that are coming out of it like this one, and we want you to decide which one is the absolute best. check it out. we are running right now on the

is on twitter as well. i mean, this video was everywhere, this one about the richmond zoo. these two were made famous on their facebook for their very unique relationship. on twitter this received a percent of the vote for best viral snow video. >> now, this one is my favorite, and it got 27% of the vote. some film makers in new york city posted this on youtube, as you can imagine as they go snow boarding down the streets they drew a lot of attention. >> resealed a few feathers. >> last week we talked about injuries while shoveling snow. it's called hoveling or shoveling white on a hover bored. 27 of you voted for this video. >> is that a banana. >> i think so.
>> but this is the morning. panda man. the one on the left of your screen is what actually won. i am dating washington national zoo's panda video that was the number one trending video over the weekend. this takes the cake with 38%. >> that panda almost looks human like. >> it is. >> it's crazy. poll. >> it was close. >> very close. the hoverboard, street snow boarding and a guy in a panda suit. cheeta cub is old. >> the snow video, it's the story from the dog with their weird relationship. >> that panda had human like tendencies. >> it grabs its leg. >> that was weird. it was weird. >> scary. >> they like the snow, i guess. >> evidently. >> no snow in sight here at home. >> at home. smooth sailing here.
totals from our big storm. law guard i can't almost 30" there. d.c. pits. pittsburgh, 4.5" and then 6.1 as you get up towards boston. the big totals were basically from new york south into west virginia, northern virginia, southern pa. as you get farther off to the north and west, things get lightedder and our snowfall total from the weekend, that .1, that's not even associated with this system that was a little bit of light lake effect that we had flying around out there. we don't have any snow this morning. a week ago today that commute was not so good, and it was bitterly cold, but this morning big improvements. 26 in cleveland. good morning to you in akron. we're at 26 as well. 23 in canton that's one of our cooler spots. here. a lot of cloudiness but no snow or rain to stand in your way, whether
side, west side or coming in from the south, at least in the world of weather you shouldn't have any problems. maybe a little glare once the sun comes up, but that won't happen for a while. over an hour until we see the sunrise. a mix of clouds and sun for your forecast. today it will be a little breezy from time to time. the temperatures are the big story today. 42 degrees. not bad at all. canton, 43, a mix of clouds and sun. >> our record today is in the 70s. i'm still okay with 40s for today, i hope you can get outside and enjoy it. we're going to see the clouds thickening up tonight. here's future view starting off at 7:00 tonight, increasing cloud cover and then after 8:00 the rain starts to move in from the west. this is just going to be rain at first and that will continue through the overnight and into tomorrow morning. but by the time you head off to work or school tomorrow and that
bit, we may see a little bit of snow or soft hail makes in early in the morning. and then we actually transition over to all snow throughout the afternoon. any precipitation we see would be purely snow, no rain or sleet or anything like that. i don't think this system will cause you any major issues, though, because it's very starved for moisture. it's an approaching area of low pressure, it's associated cold front. again, just not a lot of juice to work it with this one. so the precipitation, the rain, the snow, all of it will be pretty spotty, and any accumulation really little to nothing there. wednesday the lake gets going, we bring that back into the occasion. we'll have light snow showers, particularly out in the snow belt up to a dusting there. notice how much cooler it is tuesday into wednesday. a break on thursday. and then friday light snow in the forecast for us and a big weekend warm up. >> jon? >> wow.
where do you get a panda costume? do you walk in, i'd like a panda costume in a 40 regular, please? i don't know. really. think about it. okay. the traffic situation is not unbearable. it's moving along just fine. we're in good shape here coming up from the south on 77 across 480. 176 of course is the jennings. don't see any areas with yellow markers or red, of course caution, red pretty much stopped. 98, east 140th looking really good and here is the eastbound traffic on 480, the webb is the taillights and in and out on 77. look. i mean, there's a lot of space between these cars on seven stephanie as they head into town today. no accidents, no broken downs, it's been the story all morning long and that's let's hope it stays that way. we'll turn things back to you brian and tia. >> time now is 6:48. all morning long we've been showing you exclusive video from houston
