afternoon. i don't think we'll see any severe weather, but be prepared to dodge a few raindrops. we have to go back to class today, right? many of you first day of school. some of you have been in for quite some time. here's what we're looking at for the day ahead. out at the bus stop, i would take the umbrella because there could be a few showers around. we have a little rain out there. lunchtime, we are tracking the potential for a few thunderstorms, not as high of a chance of outdoor recess. i don't think it will rain on we're going to be in and out of these showers and storms. for your ride home, you could dodge a few raindrops. it will be warm today and 81 and not as hot as yesterday when we almost hit 90. we made it to 88 in cleveland. it won't be that hot but will be more humid, and i think you notice that the second step out the door. what about the holiday weekend? we'll talk about that and we will also talk about a big
6:03 am
laura. >> laura: first, we get to your roads this morning. drives are looking good. maybe you're a commuter heading out the door at 6:03 in the morning, maybe you're an early bird, no major accidents on any area highways. we had an earlier report of a potential fire in the ohio city neighborhood. it comes up as an alert, but it looks like it could be at least don't worry about that. if you see activity in ohio city, that's what that is. doesn't seem to be anything major. as for the highways, look at them. there you go. a lot of green and a closer look on the east side. 480 and 77 moving towards 271. 60 miles per hour the whole way. you don't have to deal with the slowing that happens especially on the valley view bridge where you start to crawl. that doesn't happen until later on in the 7:00 hour. out 422, 60 miles per hour and 64 past solon still staying on time there.
6:04 am
time. 56 minutes from canton to cleveland. 20 minutes inbound from strongsville, and we're looking at an update with rta at 6:18. >> tia: i was looking for words to kind of describe the story. one word that comes to mind bizarre, heart-breaking for the family, right? a lot of twists and turns in lorain this morning. the search continues for a stillborn baby. >> brian: the baby was lost at mercy hospital earlier this we cleveland 19's nichole vrsansky is working the story for us getting answers as to how -- what everybody wants to know -- could something like this happen? >> nichole: i couldn't imagine grieving the loss of a child, and now you deal with where is the child? unimaginable. unimaginable. it's not clear how it happened. we have a statement from the hospital, and it does not appear they're clear. sources have told cleveland 19 that the search effort this morning will include a nearby landfill.
6:05 am
at mercy hospital. we have not spoken with the parents, but the mom would have been at least 20 weeks pregnant and oftentimes in these cases, depending on the case and the family, want hospital releases the body to a funeral home for the parents to have a service. at some point in this process, that did not happen. the hospital released this statement. mercy extends its insearest condolences to the family. we are deeply sorry for the additional distress arising from this incident. mercy deeply reg the occurrence of this event and is working to remedy the situation profound empathy for the family's feelings, we're continue to investigate all aspects of this matter. though it does not alleviate the pain of this incident, we have implemented revised process to prevent a recurrence. it's rare for a hospital to make this kind of error, but there have been reports of this happening. i saw once case last september at uc medical center down in
6:06 am
answers on what standard hospital policy is at mercy when it comes to these cases. i have an e-mail out. i haven't heard back yet, but i will let you know when i do. >> brian: somewhat of a surprise twist to the campaign trail overnight. donald trump has accepted an invitation to go south of the border and visit the president of mexico. >> tia: he's going to fly there this morning. it will be right before what trump promises to be a major speech on arizona. one of trump's political platforms has been to build a wall along the mexican border. today he's expected to change his stance on his push to deport 11 million people living in the u.s. illegally. >> we are also going to secure our border and stop the drugs from pouring in and destroying our country. >> brian: now, after his time in mexico, trump will head back
6:07 am
tomorrow. trump makes a stop in wil wilmington, ohio and on the democratic side joe biden will campaign for hillary clinton tomorrow as well. the vp will be at the uaw hall in parma. doors open at 3:45, and secretary clinton will be in cleveland on labor day at a rally held by congresswoman marcia fudge at luke easter park. all this information can be found on our website, if you're like me growing up, you started school right before or just after labor day. now, kids go back to class as early as the second week of august, but there's a new effort to change that. state senator gayle manning wants schools to put back the start day until after labor day. she said its too hot for kids to be back at school, and for some students the education could be suffering. >> the schools are very warm. we had a cleveland teacher send
6:08 am
was over 90-some degrees in the classes. no one is concentrating at all. >> brian: this wouldn't change the number of days kids are in school. senator manning says districts can opt out if they want as long as the parents in the district have a chance to speak out. the issue is state-mandated testing. schools start earlier to get in more class time before taking those state tests. >> tia: an update on a police cruiser crash in downtown cleveland. we are told both the police officer does the involved with this crash are out of the hospital and are going to be okay. this happened late monday night. as for what caused the crash, we're still working to get answers on that. oh, baby. the blue angels are coming back to cleveland. at least one is already at burke lakefront airport ahead of the air show. in years past these acrobatic
6:09 am
ac your ears to the sky. >> brian: be ready if you're downtown, all of a sudden you hear the buildings shaking and you won't know what the heck is going on. are you ready for this? this morning a first look at the ohio state buckeyes alternate football uniforms. take a look. a lot of mixed feelings so far on social immediate about these this morning. the design, they say, has been inspired by the marching band uniforms. >> tia: i lik >> brian: okay. >> tia: in life there's change. >> brian: there is. you sound like the old guy whether you say something, but the reason ohio state is ohio state is because of the traditions. >> tia: it's true. i graduated fwr from there. i get it. >> brian: so if you're going to look like a bunch of clowns playing football, that kind of blows the tradition. >> tia: clowns? >> brian: they're awful. i get it. they need to do it because the
6:10 am
love it and the younger people all lover it. you're not ohio state without the traditions that make ohio state. you're just somebody else. >> tia: it's thele alternate and not permanent. it could be worse. they could be awful. they're actually a good team. >> brian: i'm in the minority of people who don't like the alternate uniforms. indiana i understand that. it's just me and it's problem. if your kid has after-school practice, they play in the rain. some hit and miss storms this afternoon? >> samantha: exactly. plan for rain this afternoon. i don't think you get poured on all day or anything like that, but hit-or-miss and patchy stuff is possible until the morning and afternoon. so practices today might have some wet fields out there. 79 at 2:00, 81 at 4:00. that is the high today. so it's cooler but more humid so
6:11 am
you're out there this afternoon. plus a look at today's forecast coming up after the break. >> tia: also, you may be at home right now. this is not to scare you but to inform you. the air inside your home can be more polluted that the air outside, but a northeast ohio company may have a way to clear the air just for you. my kids cross the street every day. i'm scared for them. >> brian: cars speeding through cleveland city school zones. we're getting answers as to w city plans to do about it.
6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
>> tia: welcome back.
6:15 am
us. a "cleveland 19 news" investigation leading to a safer walk to school for your children. our very own paul orlousky exposed that the city has a lack of school crossing guards. we noticed that guards have now appeared in front of euclid park elementary. black man's army sergeant major herbert stokes was very happy. he took it upon himself to help kids cross the road. >> we have two more crossing guards here. i am so happy. the day is a beautiful day for me today. i can take a break for >> tia: it was dangerous for kids. this is important because only crossing guards can activate the school zone signs. they're still work to be done, though. there are 349 crossing guard positions and 81 still remain open. >> brian: you may not have thought much about the air quality inside your home, but according to the epa the air in the average american home 5 to 100 times more polluted than the air outside.
6:16 am
trigger allergies. even more so this time of year, temperatures start to cool, and we spend more time indoors. a local company says just simply recirculating the air inside your home can help. their easy breeze system is installed in the lowest level of home. it draws in a constant stream of air and pushes it outside. >> creates these whole house air exchanges so that the air isn't stagnant and evacuated out the >> brian: om some research shows recirculating air in schools improves performance. fix lieke pipes and remove bathroom carpets and control indoor humidity and vacuum upholstered furniture and wash linens weekly and bedding one to two weeks in hot water. in case pillows, mattresses and comforters in commercial covers
6:17 am
>> samantha: that's exactly what we want to do, so let's start off with that morning commute forecast. i think you're good for the most part, but there could be rain out there. some of you see it. i did gifr you the yellow light for the drive in. same thing, a caution light midday as we track a few thunderstorms and even for the evening drive, especially if you commute before we'll say 5:00 or 4:00. by 6:00 most of us shb just fine. up until then a shower or thunderstorm is possible at any time. not a ton of rain out there right now. in fact, like 95% of us are dry. you travel down to akron/canton as you head out the door, no problems there. mansfield is looks good at i-71. youngstown no rain. on the east side of cleveland i have showers ongoing out in lake county and out in ashtabula.
6:18 am
cleveland. one shower right on the lakeshore of ashtabula there. some additional rain just to the south of madison, and then we have some showers around mentor and painesville as well. the rain starts to pick up as you get offshore here. if you join me from mentor ar or painesville, heads up. this could clip you as we get closer to 6:30. i do not think today is going to be a washout. so if you're waking up and you're like, thinged to do today, don't worry. it won't rain constantly, but we're in and out of showers throughout the day. we could see one pop up at any time from now through 11:00 in the morning. at 11:00 onward we say through about 4:00 or 5:00, could have a few thunderstorms out there as we start to heat things up. we're not forecasting severe weather for today. our temperature trend is 72 right now. it is warm. in fact, for me of us it is
6:19 am
73 at 9:00, 81 with thunderstorms this afternoon. that will be your forecast high for the day. tonight, dry and breezy and mostly cloudy and problem-free out at the ballpark. we have a 7:10 first pitch and we'll be in the mid-70s for that. how do the mid-70s sound to you for high temperatures? i like it. let's look at the full seven-day planning forecast. the end of the week we have this big push of cooler, drier highs tomorrow and friday only in the 70s, and could have a few showers around tomorrow but not a rainout. then that holiday weekend looks fantastic. the only bad thing about it being dry is that i do expect that lack of rain for the holiday weekend will worsen our drought. laura. >> laura: looking good out there still. still no major problems. still no major accidents. that's the kind of news that i really like to report.
6:20 am
to do my job, and it makes it easier for your morning commute as well. we like both of those, right? we work together on this one. 38 miles per hour, and 39 miles per hour. 71 northbound just passing by the metro curve. really mostly staying on time. we see the drive times in a moment, but they don't appear to affect much with that. i want to give you a look ahead for you all that use the rapid. the rta red line thursday from 10:00 at night until 3:00 in the morning on friday. they're going to be the airport. so you can expect some delays while they do some work on the tracks in the area there. drive times look on time. 28 minutes from mentor and also on time from canton, elyria and strongsville to downtown. we check in with those that use ways at 6:33. >> tia: in about 15 minutes we get answers about where local hospitals are looking this morning for a stillborn baby. >> brian: what could be the

6:25 am
storm. now, madeline is going to affect hawaii today and into tomorrow. that is a category 1 storm. so slightly weaker than lester, but lester is a category 4 expected to move over the northern end of the hawaii into this weekend. this is one powerful hurricane. there's nothing standing in its way until it gets to hawaii. it has maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour. that is one strong storm. let's go out to the atlantic where things have been pretty active there and in the gulf. we'll start with hurricane gaston. this thing is still cranking out there. you can stee that one also has very well-defined eye. it's a fish storm. we're not concerned about that one impacting land anytime soon. it's moving out to sea. tropical depression 8 off the north carolina coastline, that one also moving away from the lower 48.
6:26 am
on in the atlantic/gulf region is tropical depression 9. it will likely become tropical storm hermine later today. it has maximum sustained wind right now of 35 miles per hour. right now it's moving towards the north, but i expect a slightly northeasterly turn later today impacting the big bend of florida thursday into friday. we have tropical storm warnings and hurricane watches in so we are really focused on that region from tampa all the way up to appear lash cola. it will maybe bring some trouble to the carolinas this weekend if you head down to north carolina, south carolina, georgia. really anywhere from the delmarva to daytona friday, saturday. big surf and maybe some thunderstorms. guys, it's very active in the ocean right now. back to you. >> tia: thank you so much, sam.

6:32 am
mainly light rain, but there are some pockets of heavier rain embedded within this north of i-90 stretching from the east of mentor to west of the madison. so in between the two, mentor and madison, you may run into some rain this morning. this is tracking off towards the east. so geneva, madison, leroy, heads-up, you have some showers on the way. that can slow you down a little bit on the roads. here is the breakdown. let's plan the from now to 11:00 in the morning, we could see a hit-or-miss shower at any time. from 11:00 in the morning through the evening drive, so up to 6:00, scattered thunderstorms are possible. then from 6:00 this evening onward, we should be dry. so this is mainly a daytime kind of issue. we'll be in the 80s today, but if you're sick of the heat and humidity, i have some great news for you. we talk about that cooldown coming up in your first alert

6:48 am
