applying for loans in your child's name. >> what happens sometimes is the child's identity is stolen. they somehow get that child's social security number and the child many times does not realize it until they are 18 and maybe trying to get credit of their own and someone checks it and, boom, they got bad credit. >> tia: the way to place a freeze on a child's credit is to contact each of the major credit reporting agencies including equifax, union. once the freeze is in place it will remain in effect unless lifted by the parent or by the child after reaching the age of 16. it may cost up to $5 bucks for agency to lift that security freeze. we have a link on our website where you can learn more about protecting your child from identity theft. that's cleveland19.com. just so you know. a central ohio woman training on a sonogram finds

there as i'm also working to figure out what is going on with my weather computer. the scene won't change. all right. we will just use the space bar. ok. won't do anything. it's frozen. so -- hang with me. guys, let's switch on over to our weather 2 commuter because this one is actually working. thank you very much. so, here's our radar again. you can see showers are coming through the western half of our forecast region. lorain county, erie and huron counties and also down to the south if you areoi or mahoning county, tuscarawas, also carroll county contending with showers right now. you will have to forgive the lack of transitions in this weather show because we are having major computer issues here. i'll just take you over to the seven-day forecast if it will load. stand by. this is live television. you know how when it's raining outside you just want to sleep?
ok, so let's delve into the seven-day forecast because this really tells the whole weather story. rain is ongoing right now. it is going to continue to move through this afternoon. i don't think it's going to rain on you constantly every second or every minute. but there will be occasional showers out there. and those will continue into tonight, as well. so, any dinner plans that you have, have the umbrella ready to go. same exact thing tomorrow. a lot of clouds. occasional showers. maybe a rumble of no severe weather at all. but it will be windy and it will have the look of rain all day. and we will do it all over again on saturday. that's right. scattered showers possible. i want to stress that just like today, it's not going to rain constantly on you every second from now through saturday. but we are going to have waves of rain moving through. temperatures right around 70 through the start of the weekend. second half of the weekend features a chance of stray showers, but the system that's
bringing us the rain and the clouds, that's going to pull away by the end of the weekend. so sunday actually looking a little bit better. i think we could see a little bit of sunshine on sunday and on monday. still a small rain chance there at the tail end of the weekend. but check out your tuesday. mid 70s. gorgeous weather, tia, toward the middle of next week.
