6:08 pm
@behind kevin love. @anderson leaves cleveland and @goes to portland as the @cavaliers had to make it a @three team trade to get the @deal done. @he has been here 12 years, but @because of injuries, he has @lost a lot of times. @he has been on the bench a lot @this year, in fact he sat the @bench in 8 of the last 10 @games. @he is probably going to be cut @right away by portland but will @be picked up by another team. @there is interest in that @coming from the clippers. @this is a deal russ for the @now, and certainly for june. @this is all about the cavaliers @tweaking that roster. @not to beat teams in the @eaveern conference, but they @are -- eatern conference. @but they are trying to -- @eastern conference to go @against san antonio and @oklahoma city.

6:10 pm
6:11 pm
6:13 pm
@ pope francis takes aim at @donald trump and trump fires @back the pope, on his way home @after a visit to mexico said a @person who would build a wall @on the u.s. mexico border is @not a christian. @trump responded saying quote @for a religious leader to @question a person's faith is @disgusting. @the vatican called trump's @comments very strange. @ hundreds gathered today to @honor the life and legacy of @lewis stokes during the second @annual stephanie tubs jones @black history celebration. @the reverend andrew young was a @keynote speaker at the event. @the luncheon was named in her @hon nor, the first african- @american prosecutor in cuyahoga @county. @ 65 degrees from st. louis, @73 further west.
6:14 pm
@in this case we are going to @get the good with the okay. @we can deal with it. @ let's look at what is going @on. @we had beautiful clear skies @today for awhile, and that @allowed us to get a fantastic @shot of lake erie. @the ice is breaking up. @we have had a lot of near shore @ice but winds are beginning to @change around and about the @winds switch to the south that @begins to push all the ice back @out to the lake. @we have open water closer to @the lakeshore and areas from @cleveland west are beginning to @see that break up, although the @west end of the lake, @shadowlower colder end of the @lake has a lot more ice cover. @you can see this is a big @shift. @remember last year we had like @98%, 99% coverage and it was @thick ice. @temperatures going to be @holding here in the upper 20s @with the southeast breezes @starting to kick in. @and as we start the day @tomorrow, temperatures will
6:15 pm
@once we pass the midnight hour @i think we are going to see @temperatures cruising up into @the mid-30s. @russ mentioned st. louis, 59 @right now. @68 in memphis. @warm air off to the west of us, @beginning to lift northward and @in this transition from the @cold air to the milder air, @there is a lot of cloud cover. @we may get a little line of @freezing rain and snow. @i'll show that you in a moment. @but there is a lot of wind @coming along with this too. @we have seen the high thin @clouds. @i think we'll be dealing with @high thin clouds as we'll. @sustained winds 20 to 30 miles @per hour at times, and wind @gusts upwards of 35 to 40 miles @per hour. @here's the key. @we get into the early morning, @and you can see that those @winds out of the south will be @sustained 20 to 25, and that @means any of our east west @roads, so 90, 480, you are @going to be dealing with a @cross wind. @same for u.s. 30, same for i- @76, and 224.
6:16 pm
@with a cross wind that could be @problematic, especially if you @drive that big 480 bridge. @that one is going to be a fun @one tomorrow morning, so two @hands on the wheel for sure. @ we have clear skies that @have been seeing some of the @high, hymn clouds filling in. @we'll continue to have those -- @high, thin clouds filling in. @we'll continue to have those @through the night. @notice this is at 4:00 in the @morning. @by the time the big rush starts @in the morning commuted that @should be outside of here. @so i'm not concerned about icy @roads for the morning commute, @that should not be too much of @a problem. @winds out of the southeast to @start the day. @temperatures already mid to @upper 30s. @through the afternoon, cruising @up to 50 degrees in northern @ohio. @we have snowpack on the ground, @so temperatures will be varied, @i think upper 40s for akron, @canton and mansfield. @better than that friday in @cleveland. @saturday partly cloudy, @temperatures in the mid-50s.
6:17 pm
@what a beautiful start to the @weekend. @7-day forecast brings in a rain @snow chance on sunday, which is @the leading edge of another @cooldown. @but by mid february standards @not so bad, we can handle it in @and we stay in the 30s through @next woke. @the east coast storm system @looks like we could just get @brushed by the edges of that. @so we are keeping an eye on it. @ coming up, see how the @newest member of sarah's circle @is using her passion to be a @champion of science education. @ and in sports, jimmy's back @with more on the trade. @one of the most liked players @in cavs history.
6:18 pm
6:19 pm
6:20 pm
@ @ the trading deadline came @and it went past at 3:00 p.m. @today in the nba. @the cavaliers did make a deal, @perhaps the biggest deal of any @kind of note in the entire @league today, but it wasn't a @whopper although they take a @hit in the locker room as @anderson is dealt away as part @of a three team trade. @the guy the cavs had targeted @and he was a favorite of gm @david griffin and that is @channing fry. @32 years old a wing player. @he can stay out on the wing @left or right and shoot the @three. @although he has been on the @bench this year, only averaging
6:21 pm
@he has got three point shooting @prowess. @he has two years left to go on @his contract and so he fits @with the cavs. @anderson is gone, trade ad way @to the portland trailblazers. @so it is the cavs magic and @portland involve involved in @the deal. @a favorite for mylan years. @he had a lot left on his @contract. @expected to cut him but he is @expected to be picked up by @another team. @so the people are asking can @the calves oz pick up? @that is against league rules. @they would have to wait one @year to get him again. @the details the cavs get fry, @the magic get ajared cunningham @and a second round pick and the @blazers get anderson. @but here's the expensive part. @the cavs give up a first round
6:22 pm
@here's david griffin on @channing fry. @>> we envision he is a @complementary piece, a floor @shooter he can guard four and @his fives, his length will @enable him to play some fives @we may not have been playing @currently as well. @>> as the cavaliers basically @trade a real good friend of @lebron james. @when lebron james came back and @made the decision to come back, @one of the guys he was thrilled @to play with again was @anderson. @but injuries and the contract @made him expendable for the @cavaliers. @lebron james was not consulted @whether or not the cavs would @trade him away. @ now to the bulls game @tonight. @fry probably will not be @available for the cavs tonight @but he should play sunday in @oklahoma city. @the cavaliers start with 30 @games to go before it is go @time in the playoffs, so they @have that remaining. @they are 38-14. @best record in the east. @they haven't beaten the bulls @yet this year but chicago is a
6:23 pm
@injuries as they have lost four @in a row. @here's help. @>> we know what we are capable @of. @he want to -- we want to @continue to improve. @>> reporter: the browns made @roster moves today. @they cut tight end jim dry and @randy starks is gone. @starks did not play well last @year. @look who is back in town, ray @horton is back as the defensive @coordinator of the browns. @i asked him today from what you @did a couple years ago running @the defense and what the browns @have done the last two years @without you, how much work do @you have to do to get playing @good defense? @>> there is going to be change @no matter what happens in there @business and we have to find a @way to become a suffocating @championship defense and that @is what we are trying to do. @on do we have work? @yes we do. @>> suffocating is the word @right there. @>> intense.
