6:16 pm
it wasn't freezing, it just had to throw the gloves on, and you did okay. >> for tonight, you'll need to grab the umbrellas. it's a steady light to moderate rainfall that we'll track into northeast ohio through the overnight, and through tomorrow morning on tuesday. by late week, a cool down in store, but that will be after temperatures in the 60s tomorrow. here is what the next 12 hours look like. again, it will be the stead by midnight, and to start off tomorrow morning. think around, say, 8:00 a.m. on tuesday, most of the rain should begin to be move on out of here. but notice these winds from the south between 5 to 15 miles per hour. that's helping to pump in the heat, and watch what happens around, say, thanksgiving, or points just after midnight. those wind gusts really begin to pick up, almost at 40 miles per hour towards elyria.
6:17 pm
should begin for die down in terms of those winds by tomorrow afternoon. we're track it will that rainfall into is parts of northeast ohio. already saying it, here down towards rich land. it's just a light to moderate rain. you will not hear any thunder out of this, but all of this is pressing off toward it is the east, compliments of what we'll call weather maker and rainmaker number one. you can see it here. some severe weather being reported, much further down toward this south. th w so northeast ohio, it looks good, if in terms of it just being the rainfall. that it rain maker number 1. rainmaker number 2 is well off toward this the west. you'll notice a little lull in the activity from that point from rain maker number 1 to 2. so tuesday afternoon looking okay, but by wednesday morning wednesday afternoon, it's this area of low pressure that will rise towards the east, and eventually impact us here in northeast ohio on wednesday. so make a long story short,
6:18 pm
tracking for you tomorrow afternoon, looking okay. but you want to make sure that if you want to get some christmas decorations, or holiday decorations up, that you do it sometime tomorrow afternoon. here is what it looks like for tonight. in the rain moves in to the downtown cleveland area between 9:00 and 10:00. eventually our friends in ashtabula seeing the rain just before midnight, and then during the overnight hours, through early tomorrow, still tracking the rain showers, up until about 8:00 in the morning. so right when you're getting the kids school tomorrow, you're getting out the door, and ready for work, the rain comes to an end. perhaps some areas of misand drizzle in if between. but by tomorrow afternoon, although we'll start with the clouds, i think that we'll see a few break physician those clouds, meaning a few more peaks of sunshine, and that sunshine helping to propel temperatures into the low 60s tomorrow. in terms of rainfall totals, from start to finish, now through about 8:00 a.m. tomorrow, think that we'll pick
6:19 pm
10th of an inch to to just under a half he an inch. some spots that see perhaps the moderate rainfall, that will be closer to an inch and a half of rain, but for most of us, think things are looking relatively good. estimates tonight, fairly mild. mid-to-upper 40s, a few 50s. grab those umbrellas if you're thinking about doing dinner near the next hour he or so. wind nation's 7-day be holding and wednesday. wield hold on to a 60% chance of showers on wednesday. and then thursday, friday, and is sue into the weekend, lake effect showers we'll see. but all in all, 60s tomorrow and on wednesday, not tee bad there. think the best time to get out and about this week to get some outdoor errands done will be this thursday, friday, into the upcoming weekend.

6:22 pm
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
the browns will go to 0-12. there will be four games left to go, once we come back. but a badly needed bee a team that is winless and has not tasted a win all season long. >> welcome, everybody. there it is. here is the script that we've been showing you since september, when the browns opened up against the philadelphia eagles. and we used the same script every monday. i know some of you asked me at the stadium, are you going to use that script? of course we are. the browns lost again yesterday. so now they are 0-12 with only four more chances to get a win. but this is the bye week, so they get a chance to kind of retool.
6:25 pm
let's give you the notes. that is troubled man, hur jackson, trying to find way to win, cody kessler clears of concussion pro toy coal. he is available again. reimold seems to be get -- rg3 seems to be getting close to ready to go. peel shiell a test this week to see if he has healed enough for him to sustain contact and perhaps play maybe against the bengals. bad news, though, john greco, just a really good oh lineman, foot strain, placed on i.r., done for the remainder of the year. so if you count the 12 losss this year and the three at the end of last year, that's 15 in a row, and in the browns last 33 games, they are now 3-30. have you had enough, cleveland? i owe our fan base and our organization, and these players, an opportunity to win a game, you know, to win. and with the next one comes up in cincinnati. so we're going to do whatever
6:26 pm
ourselves in that w column. >> all right. here we go. winner winner chicken dinner. pick a winner. it's cincinnati, maybe 3-7-1, a week from this sunday. boy, that would be fitting if if hue jackson could get his first win as the browns head coach against his old team, cincinnati. kevin love was named eastern conference player of the week. does lebron know about this lo he's earned the award, first time as a cavalier. remember, he had that mag neverrent game last week when he had all of those three- pointers in the first quarter. he had, like, 28 games in the first quarter. they play the bucks tomorrow night in milwaukee. >> that will be fun. sharing the love. i think that's what that's called. >> wow. t-shirts tomorrow. t-shirts tomorrow. >> i'm calling it in.
