We've seen a great deal of clearing overnight, as rain has moved out. However, I do expect us to cloud back up through the day today. Blustery west winds will bring us a shot for scattered lake effect rain today. Akron-Canton, we should stay dry. Some lake effect rain will linger into tomorrow morning, and then we'll see partial clearing through tomorrow afternoon. Thursday looks like our best "get outside" day of the next seven. We'll return to the mid 60s. Friday through Sunday…not so much! Showers are likely Friday morning, as our next cold front moves through NE Ohio. Once this front clears the area and cooler air filters in, some lake effect rain showers may develop later in the day. At this time, it looks like they could hang around for Saturday. Areas most impacted by these showers will be from Cleveland east into the Snow Belt. The temperature trend during that time features the coolest air we've seen this Fall (so far). Overnight lows will dip down into the 30s Friday night through Sunday night. The threat for patchy frost is there, so you'll want to protect your vegetation. Highs through the weekend? They'll only make it into the mid and upper 40s.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she always expected tough competition in the Democratic presidential primary. It's likely she didn't expect it would come from Bernie Sanders, the rumpled independent senator from Vermont and a self-described democratic socialist calling for "political revolution." The surprise rivalry between Clinton and Sanders will be at the forefront as Democrats take the stage Tuesday in Las Vegas for the party's first debate of the 2016 campaign. The senator and the former secretary of state will be joined by a trio of candidates who occupy the basement of early polls, each looking to change their fortunes with a breakout moment in prime time. For months, Clinton and Sanders have circled each other cautiously and avoided personal attacks. But in recent days, both have shown that their preference to focus on policy doesn't mean they won't find ways to jab at each other. Sanders, who has filled arenas with crowds in the thousands and matched Clinton's fundraising take in the past three months, has cast the former secretary of state as a late-comer to the liberal positions he's held for decades on education, the environment and the economy.
AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Closing arguments are scheduled Tuesday in the trial of a Summit County man accused in the shooting death of an Akron police officer who was off-duty at the time, enjoying a night out. The jury in the Kenan Ivery murder trial could have the case by the end of the day. Ivery is facing numerous charges including aggravated murder in connection with the November 2014 shooting death of Officer Justin Winebrenner. Ivery, who had been thrown out of Papa Don's Pub on East Market Street quickly returned with a gun. Winebrenner was shot when he tried to diffuse an escalating situation. Winebrenner served seven and a half years on the force and is the son of a retired police officer. Ivery could get the death penalty if convicted.
