of year. >> denise: maybe snow tires. >> mark: absolutely. >> i am glad i am not in the washington, d.c. area. >> jeff: will you need more than snow tires for sure. when something like this happens obviously in washington, everything is shutdown like the end of the world. all right. here we go with future view. i will show you the timing tomorrow morning in memphis, tennessee heavy snow, kentucky freezing sleet and rain perhaps mixing in. and then this will move to baltimore and washington by tomorrow evening. southern ohio will get snow along the ohio river perhaps over six inches of snow. that's how close it is. >> it is not going to get further north than the u.s. 30 corridor. that's the worst and furthest north that it gets. here is saturday morning heavy snow baltimore washington blizzard conditions moving to new jersey or through new jersey
and getting to the east coast impossible or impossible. >> mostly cloudy sky in place most areas. a few flurries here and there. tonight i will keep it dry. 13 the low in cleveland but the wind is light. you are not dealing with the wind chill. akron-canton mostly cloudy sky and 18 degrees well a mainly light wind and tomorrow at about 10:00 a.m. we will start to warm into the 20s. we will be warmer than the 24 that we saw today for the high. i am thinking mid to upper 20s tomorrow. and that's a mostly cloudy sky. how do we get affected by the system? we will increase the wind during the afternoon and it becomes blustery and windy tomorrow and saturday and we could see flurries here and there off the lake. >> 26 the high east to northeast wind at 12 to 24.
saturday. we missed the east coast system for the most part sunday we warm to 32 and here comes the next system not until monday night. notice how we warm to 41 in the form of rain. 28 saturday. 22 saturday night and the wind diminishes on sunday. 7-day forecast. there's the 41 on monday. an alert tuesday for rain and 36. we turn colder by next wednesday. so that means snow showers at that time. as well. >> so, you know, if that storm were, you know any further north it would be a different ballgame will happen. >> they can have it. >> tony: i agree. i will take 20-degree
to tackle a lot of questions and how analytics will translate to the nfl and what exactly are they looking for and why exactly is a baseball guy helping to run an nfl team. they realize there are doubters. >> it is something i am accustomed to. no, that doesn't provide extra incentive for me. quite frankly, i understand the skepticism. i am hugely passionate about football. i have played football in college. i really wanted to work many football and my first job was the cfl and those jobs qualify me no way whatsoever for an nfl team. >> tony: what qualifies him is years and years of acquiring data and building a roster. >> in football a football team won four football games. rarely do they win four, then eight and 12 it is usually four, seven, five, 1 and you didn't necessarily sort of see it
change of state that occurred or this tipping point that then made them a completely different team previous to that. >> i think one of the first steps in pursuing that change that paul talked about was going out and finding a head coach to change the tone and set a tone and change the culture so our players are going out with more confidence sunday expecting to win and we feel we have found that. >> this is something around in football forever. when we time players in the 40-yard dash or test them in different things at the combine to help us make a better decision that's analytics and deciding what plays to call on 3rd and 9 based on what the defense does and your capabilities you are using analytics and it is not novel but we will seek out information and better information to help
