6:31 pm
@there will be snow around. @that can make any commute more @difficult. @we don't need that on a monday. @here are your weather headlines @for tonight and into the next @24 to 48 hours. @the snow does begin tonight. @it's falling in richland @county. @it will be light. @the amounts are not impressive @by northeast ohio standards. @it's really a nonevent with @light accumulations of @generally an inch on are so in @the heaviest spots. @many of you will end up with @less. @it's a light fluffy snow. @more snow monday evening into @tuesday. @this is still not really pinned @down but we are getting more @confident that there will be @snow east of cleveland falling @monday night into tuesday. @tuesday morning of course is a @much bigger commute. @right now just looking at the @forecast, i am expecting some @alerts to the easterly tuesday. @stay tuned. @here is the snow on radar, @mansfield seeing first flakes, @coming up on ashland.
6:32 pm
@get closer towards portions of @medinah into richland and @ashland, cell by to bell -- @shell by to belville towards @lodi on 71 and 76. @let's check that o dot camera. @visibility is good. @the radar is seeing the @snowflakes but they're likely @not reaching the ground. @the air is very dry. @if you download the weather app @you may see snow on the radar @but nothing falling out the @window. @it will take time for the @snowflakes to make it to the @surface. @how much in terms of amounts @and timing? @let's break it down for you. @here is 8:00 tomorrow morning. @notice a light swath of snow. @temperatures will warm to the @mid and upper 20s early monday. @that snow will continue in a @scattered fashion through @monday morning and quit by @afternoon as temperatures get @above freezing tomorrow. @i think there will be quite a @bit of meting into tomorrow @afternoon. @part two, we'll switch to that.
6:33 pm
@go into effect tomorrow @afternoon for ashtabula county. @that goes through midday @tuesday. @that's because we are expecting @three or more inches of snow @there from part number two of @the storm. @now, that second system is @still back here. @it's an upper storm in the @rockies. @as that dodges down to the east @and southeast, we are going to @get an area of low pressure @developing along this front in @arkansas tonight. @the track of that area of low @pressure will be first to the @east and then a hook to the @forth toward the great lakes @and ontario. @the big question is where @exactly will this track set up? @if it tracks tots east, i am @talking 30 or 40 miles, we will @almost get nothing. @if it tracks a little bit @closer to cleveland, we could @really see significant snow @amounts get pushed into @northeast ohio monday night @into tuesday. @we're talking numbers over six @inches in some cases possible @especially as you approach the @pennsylvania state line. @let's break the second part of
6:34 pm
@first we will start off monday @afternoon dry with temperatures @in mid 30s. @as we go through monday night, @models are showing snow filling @in. @canton, dover, youngstown, @towards ashtabula, lighter snow @towards wooster and cleveland @and west of there, elyria, @sandusky, little in the way of @snow if anything at all. @that continues into the tuesday @morning commute. @it could be a mix down to the @south with difficult travel at @the turnpike, shore way, 90 @east, geauga, ashtabula, @portage. @it moves out by tuesday @afternoon with temperatures @near 40 late tuesday. @look at the possible snow fall @amounts. @we could see four or six @inches, maybe more. @that's why the winter weather @advisories are again mainly @east of cleveland, not a lake @snow. @this is a system snow in the @primary snowbelt. @temperatures are in the 30s @through the middle of the week, @a chilly day thursday and then @still looking for a temperature @near 50 on your window nation @seven-day forecast.

good evening. the unexpected death of u.s. supreme court justice antonin scalia is reshaping the 2016 race for the white house. only three supreme court justices have died in office in more than 60 years, and only one has been confirmed during an election year since 1940. some gop presidential hopefuls are questioning president obama's established executive authority to nominate a replacement during this election season. however, the president has already said it will happen but in due time. kelly o'donnell is at the white house tonight and starts us off. >> reporter: today the silent display of

washington. but no pause before the clash of politics. >> there is no way the senate should confirm anyone that barack obama tries to appoint in his last year in office to a lifetime appointment. [ applause ] >> reporter: an instant power struggle over a successor to justice scalia. >> let me just make one point -- barack obama is president of the united states until january 20th, 2017. >> good evening, everybody -- >> reporter: president obama made clear he will nominate a new justice and expects the senate to consider his choice fairly. responsibilities that should everyone. they're bigger than any one party. they are about our democracy. >> reporter: if the president gets to seat his third just, that third justice, that change would make the court more liberal. compounding the shock of scalia's sudden passing is the timing. a campaign year. >> we ought to make the 2016 election a
6:46 pm
>> reporter: republican candidate ted cruz had been a law clerk for chief justice rehnquist. now as a senator, he intends to block any obama nominee. >> we're advising that a lame duck president in an election year is not going to be able to tip the balance of the supreme court. >> reporter: democrats are already calling out cruz. >> ted cruz holds the constitution when he walks through the halls of congress. let him show me the clause that says the president's only president for three years. >> reporter: with fewer senate votes, democrats may have to take their fight for an obama court pick to the campaign trail, as well. >> i just don't think it looks good that for very overtly political reasons that the republicans would deny this president the right to exercise his constitutional responsibility which is to appoint members to the supreme court. >> reporter: for some gop candidates and republican senators, their opposition goes beyond the idea of simply voting down anyone the president might choose. they say there should

process, no vetting, no hearing, no vote at all. >> kelly o'donnell at the white house. thank you. and the death of just scalia also how the court might decide a number of key cases this term from abortion rights to affirmative action. scalia's death and its impact from our justice correspondent, pete williams. >> reporter: as in the rest of the nation, justice scalia's death is being mourned in texas where he died saturday at this guest ranch popular with fellow bird hunters of an apparent heart attack. >> he had obviously passed away with no difficulty at all, middle of the night. it was -- that was our family. >> reporter: a catholic priest from a nearby church was summoned to administer last rites. justice scalia's colleagues on the court praised a towering intellect. ruth bader ginsburg said, "we were best buddies," adding, "he had a rare talent to make even a sober judge laugh." clarence thomas said,

friend. i will miss him baund all measure." the court often divided 5-4 along ideological lines on big cases, justice scalia's death leaves eight justices and the possibility of tie votes 4-4. >> if there's a tie, there's no outcome at the supreme court. the lower court ruling stands. it's as if the supreme court never heard the case. >> reporter: a tie vote would leave rulings intact that block president obama's plan to let five million undocumented migrants stay here. a tie would mean the tough new texas restrictions on abortion would remain, possibly inspiring other states to enact similar laws. a tie would be a boost to the financial strength of unions representing teachers and other public employees. if a democratic president appointed a successor to the conservative scalia, that would tilt the court the other way to a majority of liberal justices. >> if president obama were able to put another justice on the court, he would cement a leftist majority on the court for the next generation or so. >> reporter: among
