6:16 pm
so the coldest air of the season is on the way but first we have to get through lake- effect snow and some interesting things going on right now on the radar. let's get right to it. current on the power of 5 live doppler network waiting for the squalls, the bands of skinny moderate snowfall to heavy snowfall to really get going. some things going on right now. we've got a band right here. that's southern medina county. that's some moderate to heavy snow. also south of wooster into the dover new philly area, that appears to be stalling out. that's got some moderate to heavy snow. then we've got a band forming, moving into the greater cleveland area, then into geauga and lake and ashtabula county. so three features to watch. we will zoom in and watch the lake effect band begin to take shape. we've got our brand-new heavy snow detector turned object. look for the bright pink. half an inch per hour snowfall.
6:17 pm
there's the 271 corridor. the i-480 strip that is heavy snow. also moving into bainbridge and geauga county. look at that heavy snowfall. that will really slow you down. here is our swath from chat ham, i-71, moving almost into westfield. that is some heavy snow and that will continue on and off through teaching hours. here is one, two, and three bands of moderate to heavy snow. here is where our advisories are. generally one to three inches of additional snow in the advisories overnight. three to six additional inches in our lake snow warning areas for geauga and ashtabula counties but remember mother lines. and if this trough continues to stalling out. if it continues to sit right here and we get this heavy band of snow from canton to wooster to ashland to mansfield, or somewhere nearby, that's good for one to four inches overnight. that's good for some school
6:18 pm
closings. along the route 30 corridor, depending on where that band sets up, okay. so inside and outside the advisory areas, three to sir, wherever that heavier snow band sits up, most likely collar don, bur top, stretching into northern trumbull county, two to four inches around that, down into hudson we're looking at one to three for greater cleveland, one to two for medina and akron. that's going to come driving in, definitely by saturday morning, all the way into sunday. here is the trough. as soon as that trough drops in that arctic air shoots in. it is going to be bitter cold. 13 tonight. lake snows generally one to three inches but it could be more if you get under a heavier snow band. 18 tomorrow, scattered snow. squalls ending. here is your seven-day. friday scattered snow with another trough. 2 2. look at saturday.
6:19 pm
low near 0 to main news 5, sunday's high 15. find somebody to snuggle with. yikes. >> yikes on snuggling? >> no, on the cold weather. >> cold weather, not snuggling. we're all for that. >> you can snuggle. >> definitely not anti- snuggling. the first half of the season almost in the books. >> those lakers are here. hear from kobe bryant. and a big story breaking about that. in '07, there was a chance where there was going to be a trade between lebron and kobe. we'll talk about that when we
6:20 pm
it might have gone down as one of the biggest trades in the history of the nba. lebron for kobe in 2007. it was a phone call, according to brian windhorst. maybe he would have ended up in l.a. who knows if kobe would have played it out in cleveland. imagine the ripple effects if that trade would have happened in '07. >> back when kobe demanded the trade for the lakers in 2007 believe it or not the lakers called and inquired if the cavs would be willing to trade lebron james for him. now, this is a memory in the cavs organization because it's the only time anyone ever called to make an offer on lebron, because he was the ultimate untouchable.
6:21 pm
was 28, about to win his first mvp, lebron was 22. he had just come off his first finals appearance. it was the best player in the nba maybe for the next best player in the nba. the cavs said no, then offered anything the lakers could take off their roster for kobe. >> just imagine if that trade would have happened. it would have been mind blowing. the cavaliers would have had to have made that trade right after they went to the finals. the lakers are headed towards the lot treatment cavs should have tonight's game inhand. we will argue down the road, who would you have rather had, kobe or lebron? >> i just felt like we're just completely different generations. i just missed that thing completely. not like a magic and bird sort of thing. it was like from the time he came in the league it was more helping him, giving him direction, advice.
6:22 pm
nba years. >> it will be fun to see if they put on a show tonight over at the q. here we go with our current radar. not real organization as far as the squalls go, but there will be some heavy snow bands overnight tonight, and where those squalls persist. three to six new inches of snowfall. we'll update you through the evening on social media, twitter, and facebook. >> squalls persist.
