not as high as yesterday's 88 degrees. the stretch over the next 12 hours shows mainly overcast skies with the chances of rain at times. right now, the truth is that as most of you wake up and get breakfast going and lunches packed and things organized, maybe even something in the crock pot for dinner later, it's mostly cloudy skies. there's not a lot happening. zooming in, we have showers over the lake. now, what i've noticed is some of these are starting to move inland a bit here. cuya c some showers along 90 there. and then we're also seeing the showers in ashtabula have now moved out and are further east. so we're in the clear. geneva, painesville. as we take a look at the big picture, though, there's a lot happening in the tropics. i know this is a travel weekend coming up. we have tropical depression 8 coming up off the coast of north carolina there. this is one to watch if you're going to be traveling to the
this could absolutely have an impact on florida. we could be adding a lot to what's happening there in wet weather. so at home, things will not be soaking rains all day. so i do think on and off showers, possible thunderstorms. 9:30 this morning, we see more scattered showers today. it's possible as you're getting after school activities that there will be wet roads and their think ahead and plan for some extra time. probably not the best night to grill because you will be dodging some raindrops potentially. window nation 7-day forecast, we could have leftover chances tomorrow. bring it on. labor day weekend and all clear. sunshine and beautiful and eventually warming back into the 80s.
>> wkyc is brought to you by mike bass ford. get a great deal and a great deal more at mike bass ford. so far i'm not tracking any accidents at 5:19. we move to the south. we're pretty much green on our highways and major roadways. also, i was checking a little bit of slow traffic. u.s. 42 in medina county as you're approaching, i believe, cone road. 11 miles per hour there, adding minutes to also slow traffic 271 south as you're approaching 71. that's all cleared out. speaking of 71. 71 southbound at route 82. royalton road. watch for possible ramp restrictions from overnight. here is the picture in the area. we have normal drive times. >> thank you, dani.

android user, it's time to put cash back in your pocket. >> to you like putting cash back in your pocket? i love putting cash back in my pocket. >> agreed. with the apple announcement you've been talking about for weeks, it greatly impacts the value of both of your phones, especially if you want a buyback. >> what? >> apple, android? how is that whenever apple makes an announcement, there's a surge in people selling their devices, whether or not they're migrating from android to apple, vice versa. it affects the entire world of technology. what this means to you right now, whether or not you're an iphone, samsung, lg, htc, blackberry, $49 prime phone,

drug abuse and drug addiction. so often we hear about how an addiction to prescription pain pills can lead people to heroin. it is cheaper and much easier to get on the streets when those pills run out. well, today, bags will be available that you can use at home to safely get rid of any old medication in your medicine cabinets that you know longer need. so everything begins right here today. we're outside of the summit county public health building. th's begins, and this is something we'll continue to follow to see how it goes here in summit county. john? >> all right. three northeast ohio men are one of several inmates' whose sentences have been cut short. this is part of obama's cutting sentences. this sentence has been reduced
also, hal mincy was convicted for distributing crack in 2001. he's set to get out in december. let's bring in hollie now for a look at that forecast. >> thanks so much, john. it's 5:33. if you're just getting the day started and the coffee brewing and the breakfast starting too. we have scattered showers and storm chances now. this is a little misleading because pour all day. the chances will be there not only this morning but also into the afternoon and evening commutes. so rain gear today. 75 at 9:00, upper 70s at noon. we'll be around 80 for a high today. not as hot at 88. in the coming day, we'll see cooler weather coming in before it warms back up again. a lot of cloud cover as you're waking up this midweek. as we do zoom in, we'll see
county. so we're starting to see some wet weather. no thunderstorms, which is very important to note. yes, roads are going to be wet in spots. so we're going to watch and track real closely. as we do track on future view here and track you mid-to-late morning, we do see more and into the afternoon too. so danielle is keeping an eye on things. these wet roads, as we know. we slow things down a little bit. >> they cause accidents and people are not -- you're used to driving them, but sometimes you don't make adjustments we're at 77 at the turnpike on the summit-cuyahoga county border. traffic is moving just fine. i know many of you were stuck in that traffic jam in that area right now. right now the turnpike, 271, no problems. speaks of 77, watch for the overnight road closures at rockside, state route 82. some pavement repairs are going on in that area. hopefully that will clear out. today is the last day of that. other than that, we're green.

equipped for the bus stop too. 80 at 5:00, not nearly as hot as yesterday's 88. and overthe next 12 hours, we'll see a lot of overcast skies. we're going -- over the next 12 hours, we'll see a lot of overcast skies. we're going to see an increase. most of you are dry. we're seeing much more overcast skies. as we zoom in, what we've noticed over the past 30 minutes is a lot more activity anticipated by our computer model forecast. as these showers continue to move inland, more wet roads along 90 and could cause some slowdowns. sometimes the smallest rain shower could do that. you will see that some of those showers are now east side of cleveland and also lake shore lake county. we're seeing showers as well, just approaching mentor at this point. we're going to zoom out and take a little trip.
we have tropical depression number8, keeping a closer eye on it. maybe with the holiday weekend coming up you have plans in south plans -- you have plans this weekend. we'll continue to see how we continue with those chances on and off. as you're grabbing your kids for school, headed to work, the great news is we're just looking terrific for the holiday weekend. all the way through. air show and everything you've got planned. speaking of terrific, rylee, about three years old. she's located in stowe. very special because she was saved from the cleveland kennel almost two years ago. fallon sent the picture in, saying she's our baby. we sure get it. it's 5:35. sheer a check on your -- here

going to bring back a player. a deal that would send coco crisp back here to cleveland. the deal has to be done today for coco to be eligible. he's hitting .234 this year. all right. for my take this morning, correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't this the land of opportunity, the place where we're taught to go after our dr much bashing of tim tebow when he goes after an opportunity. he held a baseball workout in front of major league scouts. here he is. he sent out invites saying he wanted to hold a workout. no one had to show up. 42 scouts did. he wasn't perfect. he had a few slips in the outfield, but he showed he has power, hitting off two major league pitchers. he hit a home run, over 400 feet, one of the toughest
he's a pro athlete. he didn't say he's going to make it in the majors, but he wants a chance at a career in baseball. >> it's not about publicity. it's definitely not about money. i took a pay cut to do this. for me, you pursue what you love, right? regardless of whatever happens. regardless of if you fail or fall flat on your face. that's the worst thing that could happen. when did that become a bad thing. when did pursuing what you love become >> there's the lesson. tebow won who national championships at florida. he won an nfl playoff game with the broncos while others said he wasn't an nfl quarterback. you don't think he could fill a major league stadium? one thing tim tebow can do besides win is market himself. he got 28 major league teams to come and take a look at him yesterday. you can't fault him for that. tweet me your thoughts at john wkyc. no matter what tim tebow does,
>> i agree. you know, forget the haters. >> why say he can't do it. >> love his attitude. >> right. >> love his attitude. 5:50 right now. coming up, ways to save. hi, matt. >> good morning, lynna. people are looking for college backpacks. i'm going to put a light bulb in one and throw a brick
