Good Thursday morning northeast Ohio!

We know it's cold outside, with the wind chills below zero. Those who have to work outside in this arctic air fight the battles to stay warm. Reporter Laura DeMaria is live outside in downtown Cleveland highlighting the struggles they face when working outside in these conditions.

And the cold is contributing to car problems, leaving many stranded, with problems like dead batteries. AAA serviced more than a thousand people in Cuyahoga County alone in a 12 hour time period. But we have some tips that may keep you from getting stuck. Tune in as Reporter Shannon Davidson brings us the details live from the East Shoreway.

Edward Snowden is speaking out about leaking NSA data. He plans on participating in an online question and answer session later today. Reporter Marlie Hall is live in Washington with the details.
