very emotional for trump and clinton supporters, so they were planning extra security, but then came this terrorist threat. so we reached out to them and asked them questions about what they planned to do to keep you safe. this is what we got from them. they have 6,000 election officials ready to go in cuyahoga county alone. they are looking for any signs of voter intimidation and trouble-makers will be removed. and neutral. the campaign perimeter will be strictly enforced, and all police departments will be patrolling voting locations. over the weekend we heard from a professor who was also an expert in the military. he served in the military. this is what he had to say about those terrorist threats and what you should do with that information. >> issuing these notinotices, i there was not some chatter in
to come to terms with the fact that we can't let it change our lives. >> reporter: so it sounds like he's saying this sounds like a legitimate threat. in the next half hour, what officials who are charged with your safety are asking you to do to keep yourself safe and everyone else safe. for now we ask questions and getting answers in lakewood, denise zarrella, clevela in a while, maybe you're confused where to go. your voter registration card has your address where the polling place is, but if you're not sure check your phone. download the free cleveland 19 mobile app and get all the information until the palm of your hands. if you turn on push alerts you can find out who wins when we send it to your phone.

alert desk with the latest out of florida this morning. former u.s. attorney general janet reno has died of complications of parkinson's disease. she was 78 years old. she was the first female attorney general. she served under bill clinton from 1993 to 2001. she faced criticism over the waco standoff and the elian gonzalez case during her tenure, but her candid manner brought fans that appreciated her offbeat image. at for "saturday night live" and many remember that cameo appearance in will ferrell. the cubs fan punched in this video by an indians fan after game seven wants to prosecute. alan anderson's attorney wants the unidentified man caught because the attack was unprovoked. >> i've never heard alan say to punch me. alan denies ever saying that he wanted to be punched.
forward and turn the indians fan into police. another story throughout the day. this morning cleveland city council's safety committee takes the first step to get dash cams in police cruisers. he's going to authorize the director of finance to go ahead with the purchase and installation of cameras. we'll push out an update after they meeting this afternoon. rock 'n roll hall of fame, you might do a double-take as you drive by. >> brian: i love the cleveland ones all over town. it's all in red and says long live rock. it's awfully cool, i think. >> tia: "the plain dealer" reporting the sign will be dedicated on thursday after a big redesign of the museum. >> samantha: all right. good morning to you.
we are in the 40s in cleveland. it's chilly out there, but no rain or anything for your morning commute. you should be just fine. i'll give you the green light there. midday commute, evening commute, it all looks dry. you need the sunglasses today. it's a sunny day, and our satellite and radar shows up completely employment. nothing going on out there. just a gorgeous day as we ease back into the work week. teps today look like this, 30s by 9:00 we hit 52 and 64 midday and an afternoon high around 3:00 of 68. we're pretty far above average. the average high this time of year only in the middle 50s. so we're overshooting that this afternoon. a little fog west of cleveland this morning. that should lift by mid-morning giving way to sunny skies for the whole day and clear skies tonight as well. the hour-by-hour rain chance
there. i think election day could bring a little rain. let's talk about tomorrow's forecast a little more closely. morning forecast looks good. lots of sun, but as we progress through the day, clouds will increase and then i think by about 4:00 or 5:00, rain will move in from our west. i don't expect any thunderstorms or severe weather, but i do think the rain could slow us down on the roads. evening commute and those that plan to maybe swing by the polls after work. that's when i expect the rain to come in. 50 at 8:00 tomorrow morning and highs tomorrow in the lower 60s. we'll be just a touch cooler tomorrow, and then we get even cooler for wednesday. look at that. 52 on wednesday afternoon. the rain that moves in tomorrow afternoon late, remember, this is 4:00, 5:00 tomorrow, those showers are going to hang around through tomorrow night. then we might even see a little lingering rain wednesday
should be dry, and then i think we'll get through most of thursday and friday dry, too. look what happens on friday night. that is veterans day, by the way. a little rain moving in overnight, and it will be cold enough that it might even mix with the first snowflakes of the season. no impact here. it's not going to slow you down on the roads or anything. just going to be chilly this weekend, laura. we're only in the 40s most of the weekend. >> laura: brr. quite a change from this one, right? this is a changor you can expect some traffic delays all week this week. water crews on the scene out there on brecksville road just to the south of rockside road fixing a water main break. two to three lanes of northbound route 21 will be closed to traffic. in the meanwhile use east pleasant valley road as your reroute. all right. we're going to head to the maps now. things looking perfect all across the area in terms of highways. the commutes look really good. straight up 77 from akron,
construction, though. lots of construction projects, all these crews are out here trying to wrap up projects and get them done before we get to that wintertime. construction on canal road, right under the innerbelt bridge, or it would take you under it. this week both monday and wednesday they're going to close from 9:00 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon. that's what takes you from ohio city to tremont and vice versa. you can use 14th street as a strongsville to cleveland and akron into downtown, everything looks very, very green. we take you to that water main break in independence again coming up at 6:33. brian. >> brian: 6:20. another -- well, there's a lot of things i'd like to say about how the browns played yesterday. in four minutes bob golic will join us as we try to digest that awful game against the cowboys. we're looking for positives.
be positive. also, it's election eve. we have a live report regarding safety at your local polling place after terror threats but the fbi on high alert. >> brian: up next, an update to breaking news happening right now. this is a live picture. we have a standoff situation going on

>> tia: we start with breaking news, we go back to rocky river, and that's the scene you're looking at right now. a man is wanted >> ni in connection with with the shooting in lorain. he's holed up in his car stuck behind a home on colahan drive. departments and the s.w.a.t. team are on that scene as you can see. of course, we have cleveland 19's sia nyorkor. she's live there as well, and will have an update in a few minutes. we go back out to sia at 6:30. brian. >> brian: thank you so much. i'm here with bob golic as we get ready for the browns conversation today, bob. here's where i want to start with this. everybody saw.
>> there was a game yesterday? oh. >> brian: tell me where the positives are from this browns season so far. >> positively haven't won a game. >> brian: i know, bob. >> positively the most dangerous place on the field is behind the center. >> brian: right. >> the center is pretty dangerous. >> brian: let's talk about that and show that video. this is cam irving. he's the number one pick out of florida state. a lot expected of him. >> there and ripped the guy's helmet off. then he used it to beat him. now, i say this. what good are helmets if you can't beat your opponent with it? i mean, that might be -- that's a little old school, but they're both getting thrown out here, because you're not supposed to use any part of your uniform as a weapon unless it's attached to you, i guess.
team in the future? >> he has to either grow up or -- i don't think it's immaturity. i think he doesn't focus. we see him with penalties. you see him doing all these things not right. getting beat on games up the inside. i don't know. maybe he's not comfortable playing center. i don't know. >> brian: they're talking about moving him already to tackle. we only have a couple seconds. what do you see from kessler? i think he looks okay. >> i think it's a good on, we take him and build him and less kessler take it down and let them battle it out. >> brian: thursday night, baltimore. is that a chance? >> yeah. it's a chance. unless you're putting money on it. then don't. >> brian: all right, tia. oh, man. >> tia: all right. time is 6:26. coming up it's the last day of early voting. what you need to know in five minutes.
center, and we can say a few chances of snowflake. is this for real? >> samantha: yes, this is not a lie this weekend. everyone keeps saying is it really going to snow? like i wouldn't say it on tv. >> tia: it's going to be dark forever it seems like. >> samantha: the sun sets today at 5:15. we might have some snowflakes rolling in this weekend. i said snowflakes and not a blizzard. just a little flakage.
>> tia: what a way to start your morning. you have to get to work and get the kids to school and this happens. this is in rocky river. a s.w.a.t. team has surrounded a home where a man is inside of his car, and they say he has a gun. >> brian: this is on colahan drive not far from inglewood. this is just north of 90. sia nyorkor is there with what's happening right now. sia. >> sia: >> good morning. it's a bizre neighborhood. it's still a very active scene. plenty of law enforcement here trying to negotiate peacefully to get that man out of his car. i'm told that he has barricaded himself in his car behind this home and is stuck in the mud and is refusing to get out of the car. so law enforcement is here trying to talk him out of it. they told me no one is in any
i'm also told that just earlier this morning that lorain police say he is wanted and suspected in a shooting there, and so this is how they ended up here in rocky river. you can see police here now. there's a little bit of activity going on, and they are trying to negotiate and get him out of that car. like i mentioned, still a very active sean. we're asking quest a trying to get answers for you. this standoff is still going on. for now here we will update you on air and online. i'm sia nyorkor, "cleveland 19 news." >> tia: we'll have an update at 6:45 stoos as soon as we get more information on the story. it's election day eve and i'm tia ewing. >> brian: our live team campaign coverages begins in a few minutes. let's check with sam roberts with the first alert forecast. what a weekend, sam.
in we keep it going today. warm, great weather today, but rain does return by tomorrow. that's election day, so some of you may need to take the umbrellas and the ponchos to the polls. we could also be seeing our first flakes of the season. snowflakes coming up this weekend. we'll talk about that and everything else weather-wise in just a bit. but i want to get you out the door this morning. you can see that we are completely dry, no rain or snow out there right now. it's beautiful, but if you live into a little fog this morning. please watch out for that on your drive in. maybe you're commuting today driving towards toledo. the closer you get to toledo, the foggier it is. especially closer to the i-75 corridor. please go slow in those areas. any fog that's around should erode by mid-morning giving way to wall-to-wall sunshine for today. our temperatures look like this hour-by-hour. a little cold right now, but
52 at 9:00, and then by 11:00 we are at about 61. you see this graphic on your tv screen. uh-oh. this is the first time this year i broke out any snow graphics. we'll talk about that little chance of snow this weekend coming up at 6:45. >> laura: live picture there. just kidding. this is a picture that you're not going to want to see, but it's the scene today and for most of the week here. the scene on brecksville road just south of rockside road fixing a water main break. two to three lanes of northbound route 21 will be closed to traffic, so your alternate is to use east pleasant valley road. it doesn't look like they're working there right now. hopefully we will see them out there, and they can get this repaired for everyone traveling through the independence area. that's a bift a headache. as for the highways in independence, those look fantastic and so do the rest of the highways on the map.
monday morning when it's more difficult. for the akron area, we look good. 76 to the west just moving a little slower from norton here as you move through towards 77 and maybe moving towards the canton area and massillon trying to go south. commutes are looking really, really good. drive times are on time. mentor, if you head to cleveland 28 minutes and 57 to canton, elyria to downtown 28 minutes and 19nb strongsville. we have construction at warrensville heights. we'll have that for you at 6:30. >> tia: it's a big story definitely. campaign 2016, hillary clinton and donald trump make their final case to voters in several key states one day before election day. >> brian: here's what we have, the latest nbc/"wall street journal" poll out. clinton leads trump by 4 points nationally. craig boswell now with the latest from washington. >> reporter: donald trump
push in virginia overnight railing against the fbi's decision to exonerate hillary clinton over her e-mail controversy. >> this is a rigged system. hillary clinton is guilty. she knows it. the fbi knows it. >> reporter: after reviewing thousands of newly discovered clinton e-mails, fbi director james comey penned another letter to congress sunday revealing investigators are standing by their july decision not to bring charges against the democratic nominee. >> we're glad this matter is resolved. >> reporter: clinton did not mention the fbi development as she rallied support in pennsylvania, ohio and new hampshire with the help of lebron james and james taylor. >> i really believe that america's best years are still ahead of us. >> reporter: clinton's e-mail saga haunted her throughout the entire campaign, despite the fbi's final decision, the issue continues to be a source of debate on capitol hill. in a statement sunday night, house speaker paul ryan used the topic to encourage americans to
simply believes she's above the law and always plays by her own rules. senate minority leader harry reid once again accused director comey of breaking the law for penning the original letter to congress writing he created a political firestorm 11 days before a presidential election merely to confirm what we already knew, that secretary clinton's e-mail practices were legal. voters will get their final say tomorrow when they head to the polls on >> brian: we're giving you an idea of where the nation sits this morning in the presidential race. a poll done by nbc and "the wall street journal" shows clinton up 5 points on trump. we expect new poll numbers later today. we get that information to you as soon as it comes out. today is the last day as early voting comes to an end. here's what you need to know. it begins at 8:00 this morning and ends at 2:00. >> tia: that's right. this is in every county in ohio and not just cuyahoga. early voting is available across the state from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00
if you mail your absentee ballot, it must be postmarked today so you must mail it today. if you don't, drop it off tomorrow but up only at your county's board of elections and not a polling place. the polls open tomorrow at 6:30 a.m., and they will stay open until 7:00 p.m. if early voting today goes anything like yesterday, you better pack your patience. the lines wrapped around the building down east 30th street to chester. those who took the opportunity over the weekend, they have to today and tomorrow, so this didn't want to miss their chance. >> it's my first presidential election. i just became a citizen last year. i'm glad to be voting. i'm from mexico. >> i'm here to change the world, you know what i'm saying? we're one vote, you know what i'm saying? one band, one sound. >> i feel it's my duty as a citizen. >> i've been voting since i've been 18 years old. >> tia: it starts at 8:00 a.m.

we reached out to election officials over the weekend, and they told us things they plan to do to keep you safe. here's some of them. they have 6,000 election officials ready in cuyahoga county. officials on guard looking out for voter intimidation. trouble-makers will be removed promptly and polling locations will be kept safe and neutral and the campaign perimeter strictly enforced. all police departments are patrolling the voting locations, and officials across the united states are asking everyone to remain vigilant. you to report it to keep you safe and everybody else safe, too. in the next half hour in the next live hit, we talk to a security -- actually a military expert that ways in on the security measures and how you should interpret the latest terrorist threat. denise zarrella, cleveland 19. >> brian: cleveland public auditorium was jam-pack ford a hillary clinton rally on sunday
