totally shocked. >> i just can't believe it's real but i know it's all of the hard-working people on our team in our city. it's the cleveland plan at work where everybody's in on education and it really is only one city that can say that. >>reporter: also consider the context, why being here is so important. the school's report card is in and chances are if you were a youngster and brought home this particular report card unfortunately you'd probably get your video g month. the district got straight f's in everything from achievement to k3 literacy to preparation for success. somehow graduation rates have gone up by 17%. more students involving kids lives in school and the cherry on top, there's been an upturn in student enrollment for the first time in decades.

holiday. seasonal workers will store packages, drive trucks and assist with deliveries. they expect the four mondays after thanksgiving to be the busiest in history. so when they ask if you want to open a store credit card and save, remember this, the average store-branded charge card comes with 23.84% interest. that's much higher than the national average for credit interest rates, about 15%. the incentives may seem good, but the study found they aren't all that generous. only 13% offer a sign-up bonus with a value greater than 25 bucks on a $200 purchase. >> as my father used to say, that's how they get you. >> and they ask and ask and ask, don't they? >> they do. >> when you go to the cleaners tomorrow to get those flannel pants out, are you going to pay with a store credit card?
goodness bring them out elastic waist, no pockets, flannel, comfy pants. >> casual friday, right? >> oh, it's on for the morning tomorrow, coffee and flannel pants, it doesn't get better than that. and throughout the day tomorrow you might want to hit the soup store. i know you said you had some soup from a place tonight. >> supermarket. >> grilled cheese, it's a comfort kind of dealing with. let's put all this into motion and you can see this is moving from southwest to northeast. there are pockets of heavier rain showers and the pockets are moving you mean the west side of i-71 and additionally farther south from areas down in knox county right up in tuscarawas and carroll county so you folks have another round of heavier rain showers that's going to be moving in. the bigger picture shows we're not quite done yet. you can kind of see this train of rain that we have coming
are anticipating seeing this batch right here start to move back up over northern ohio. and that batch right there, it does have a few rumbles of thunder in it potentially so last night we had some thunder that came around but we'll continue to see that. you can also see that our flood watch is down just in tuscarawas and carroll counties at this hour. that will continue until about 9:00 o'clock tomorrow morning. i'll get you into the weekend as well. we have the rain that's coming through tonight and that will stick around for morning commute tomorrow. we had some sloppy spots during this morning's commute so tomorrow morning you want to tack on a few extra minutes. here's the big changer winds out of the north at 14 to start and staying throughout the day. we will have a cold front pushing through. that should bring around a line that will help to push the big chunk of moisture out of here. here's the problem, the cold wind is coming over the lake and
we'll have periodic rain showers, light and/or moderate coming down across northern ohio for game time for our high school football games. winds still out of the northwest at 150 to 15. it's going to be kind of nasty out there. temperatures at 9:30 in the 40s to about 50 degrees. notice the winds are northwest. those lake effect rain showers coming northwest to that will continue but drier air comes in in the afternoon so hopefully by the end of the day saturday we will get some clearing taking place. that will then lead us into sunday which is supposed to be a whole lot better. as far as how much rain is coming, depends on where you are. we can have some areas that get an inch or more tonight. your window nation forecast is temperatures tomorrow in the mid 50s. look at this rain coming down. it will be scattered around so
tomorrow. rain showers lingering saturday. sunday it clears out. monday a little bit of rain and then tuesday and wednesday it's game on in the cle. back to you. >> all right, betsy, thanks. coming up, the indians now wait and see who their opponent will be in the world series, hopefully one of their starting pitchers will be ready to go. >> we have the latest on where
and now, the window nation sports report. >> hi, everybody, a day of relaxation forego the indians after winning the american league pen unanimity last night in toronto but they will be back on the job tomorrow. they will have an afternoon workout at progressive field. they will work out through the weekend on up until tuesday when they open up the world series, still trying to find out who they will play on tuesday.
and an update, trevor bauer says he'll be healed and ready to go in the world series if called upon by the indians. he had that injured finger, the stitch broke away, and of course he had to be taken out of the game because blood was pouring down and so he was removed from the game on monday night but he said he would be available to go possibly for game 3 when the series either goes to los angeles or chicago, depending upon who they play in the world series. bauer talked to chudowsky after the game last night. >> seemed like we were capable, the hard work paid off. that's what we set out to do since spring training. i don't think anyone here is surprised. >> last night several members of the cavs like all of us they were glued to the television set. they were watching the game from the town hall restaurant in ohio city but now it sets up an incredible sports night on tuesday in cleveland. lebron and the cavaliers raise their championship banner and
game of the season tuesday night at the q against the knicks and right across the gateway plaza game one of the world series. >> that's great. we all know the excitement that's going on in our town right now and, you know, as good as it is for the players on both sides, it's even better for the fans. our fans get an opportunity to follow the indians, cover the indians, follow the cavs, cover the cavs for soy just great for them. >> let's tell you about the series game five going on right now, a very slow pace to that i game at dodger stadium and it's in the top of the 8th inning and the cubs lead. they will be up three-2 in the series and going back to wrigley for game six or a possible game seven if needed. if the dodgers win they would take a three-2 lead.
again. trying to get their first win under hue jackson as head coach of the cleveland browns. terrelle pryor did not practice again, had had did not practice, but terrelle pryor that's a real problem because he's been such a play maker for the offense and a favorite receiver of whoever is playing quarterback and it will be cody kessler once again. now, a report tonight says that the browns have begun contract talks with pryor who could become a free agent at the end of the talking about a long-term contract in the vicinity of eight to $10 million a year. head coach hue jackson had a lot of good years in cincinnati and is a best friend of the bengals' head coach. as a matter of fact cincinnati said to him he might only stay as head coach a couple years, why don't you wait and become our next head coach instead of taking the cleveland job in of course he came to cleveland and on sunday the 2nd best friends go against each other.
this week it's about the cincinnati bengals and that's the way he feels as well. we got to go out there get our teams ready to play and play a football became. >> in the battle of
ohio the bengals a disappointing two-4 so they need to win on sunday but we need to win. >> we are over 310 days since the last time we celebrated a browns' victory. >> thanks for that statistic.
