>> it is the windy city but >> that's a lot of wind. >> we had wind gusts over 50 miles per hour as well. again. winds settled down for a little bit and it seems like things are starting to stir up on us. as far as the wind goes, yes, the seeds are bad, but boy it's temperatures. there's a look at your sustained wind speed. look at that 36 miles per hour sustained wind. but guests are over-40 miles per hour in many locations. and we could see those again. now, as far as the expected wind speed during the night, the oranges, the brighter colors, that's where those really high gusts are. and the higher wind speeds as well. watch what happens as we go through the night. it's still going to be very breezy. will stay very breezy as we go through the day tomorrow. but the wind gusts speeds should come down. i mentioned the warmer temperatures that these winds are bringing in. and that is certainly the case. 52 in the motor city.
and the temperatures in the 60s the doorstep. we are in the upper 50s right now in downtown cleveland. northwest. this will start to invade as we head through the afternoon and evening tomorrow from north to south. we're actually going to see a cool down especially along the but other than that, it looks like it's going to be a great day for us, albeit breezy. we'll see some sunshine. and as far as all the snow and rain that you see north of us, of us. now, let's talk about your hour by hour forecast, getting into you can he soo the temperatures, this is not going to be the case, my friends. these southwesterly winds will just hold our temperatures up as we go through the morning and that should easily get us into the 50s and 60s as we head into the day tomorrow. would not be surprised if cleveland clocks in some mid-60s. the car thermometer temperatures will be very interesting tomorrow. but we tend to get the warmest temperatures with the southwest wind closer to the lakeshore.
farther to the south. tomorrow evening we'll start to see the temperatures cooling back down once again. and on sunday we are anticipating some clouds to be in play. and temperatures that will be cooler for the day. notice that we're only in the 30s, mid-day, we're probably going to be in the 40s early in the morning. and we stay cloudy. but we don't really have a great chance for any rain showers that are going to be showing up in the forecast. so as far as saturday goes, we'll just say 50s to start. probably peeking in the 60s as we head through the early afternoon. and then the temperatures will likely fall back in cleveland but stay nice and toasty as we head south. so 60 for akron. 61 mansfield. the breezy conditions around. we'll see the winds finally temperatures likely to be in the 30s for a good part of the day. isolated rain chances can't be ruled out. but i think we may get a few peeks of sun with all the clouds. we know nation seven-day forecast does have cooler air returning for monday with partly sunny skies. we do pick up some snow chances
that's going to be quickly moving through. at this point, i would not count on any accumulation from that but we might be able to get an inch out of it. but temperatures will be in the low 30s for wednesday and thursday. and then look at that, back into the 20s on friday. so last weekend, we were complaining because it was so cold, this weekend we're so happy it's warm, but it's windy. next weekend it's back to the cold. so oh. >> see you at the pool tomorrow. >> picnic. >> okay. . >> a picnic. >> you got it. back in sports. rumors swirling tonight after former cavalier anderson varejao. >> what team may be interesting picking him up.
0. dave, if you weren't sad about andy varejao leaving before you read -- it's lick. >> he's crushed. and here in cleveland, boy, i do not want to see something happen in june where varejao is on another team. that would not be good. if you were not a fan of calf as parting ways. according to report by espn several teams are interesting in signing varejao including the golden state warriors. can you imagine? golden state contemplating making a play at varejao after he clears waivers on sunday and then release of andy by portland. the warriors have a need for him. head coach says it makes perfect sense. it sounds as though varejao will take the weekend to clear his head. he wrote a letter to cleveland fans today saying it was an honor to represent the city and the cavs for the last 12 years saying the cleveland fans are the best. he said he wanted to retire here
so with that i say good buy but more importantly i say thank you. thank you for your support. thank you for coming out every night whether we were winning or losing and thank you for giving me the best 12 years of my life. man, the guy, the cavs received in the trade yesterday, channing frye is in town. he just watched practice today but he's expected to take part tomorrow. he will play on sunday. he injured his shoulder in fourth quarter. he pulled up after making a steal. said he was fine last night. he was held out of practice. the coach is unsure if he will play sunday. it's the same shoulder injury that called him to last five weeks. snow johnson is still in play to land with the calfs should he obtain a buyout of his salary worth $25 million this soon season. onson wants to come here.
team by march 1st to be playoff eligible college basketball huge game tonight. it's the best rival ry. the 100th anniversary of the kent state and akron rival ry. can't stop isaiah johnson. two of his team, 24 points but the flash has come back, thanks to a hot shooting night. thomas had 22. at the half. second half spicer having his way down low. he had two as well. kent state wins -- flashes 73-71 all-time versus akron and now trail the first place zips by -- including the season finale in akron. the weather outside has us thinking spring as we inch closer to opening day on april 4th, a busy day for rt indians. spring training is really here now. seeing the visuals from goodyear, most players already outwest. the first official squad work
today the first work outfor pitcher and catcher. the basically has been said for opening today except that pit spot, anderson hoping to learn that while learning from the other guys. >> it always seems like people watching from the outside they're just a robot, you know. but watching their day-to-day routine and adjust when they're doing good. whatever happens, they don't change who they are or what they're doing or how they treat anybody. >> the indians are bringing -- on board. it's worth 5 million to play third base. he will sign once issues with his -- are resolved. he returns to the u.s. and passes a physical. career .256 hitter. and he's great in the clubhouse and we will be in arizona all week next week. >> safe travels to you. >> thank you, my friend. next comic book record. find out how much the first
