an early spring is my forecast! >> "q": members of punxsutawney phil's top-hat wearing inner circle revealed his forecast. phil's decision is decided ahead of time by the group on gobbler's knob. phil has predicted more winners, 102 times, while forecasting just an early spring 17 times. but, closer to home in marion, ohio, buckeye chuck predicted six more weeks of winter. chuck predicted an early spring the last five years. his accuracy rating is 75%, not too shabby. buckeye chuck became the official state groundhog in 1979. >> laura: ok, q. so, talking about groundhog day, we got to talk about some of the myths that are associated with groundhog day. so i've got a few of them here for you. the first one is -- always the groundhog? well i put that up here because truth is, while this groundhog
to the roots of some european folklore. german tradition used a bear. a badger. a hedgehog. other animals like that instead of this guy right here, this little cute little groundhog that we are used to today. as for the accuracy, ok, so, punxsutawney phil says that we will get this early spring. right? well -- i wouldn't hold your bets too close on it. turns out about 39% accurate. this goes back to the 1800s. so, your luck might be better to flip a coin. next one here, only punxsutawney phil? well maybe we know this bus we just talked about this for sure. punxsutawney phil is not the only prognosticating groundhog out there. ok of course in ohio we have him, new york has its own groundhog. so do several other states. even canada has its own groundhog. q. could probably tell us about that one. then last but not least, english. well when we watch that big event in punxsutawney, pennsylvania, they are talking in english. right?
the old tradition is to speak in the pennsylvania dutch, some places if you speak in english, you have to put either a nickel or a dime into the jar. but sam, i don't know what filled up. punxsutawney phil? >> samantha: has to go right? maybe they use it to fund all that craziness that they have at gobbler's knob. you got to pay the band. it was kind of a wild scene watching that early this morning. it's so fun to see that every year and we like the prediction this year. right? i know he's not always right but ok. last three hours, pretty quiet conditions out there. but wow, the increasing cloud cover, we told you this morning that the sunshine wouldn't be an all-day thing, we would see increasing clouds and, that has certainly come to fruition. there's the rain back to our west. showers in chicago and then stretching down into st. louis. rain right now and that is headed in our direction. but when will it get here?
outside and enjoy this nice weather if you have some free time this afternoon, no rain 2:00 4:00 6:00, we should be good to go. but you start to get closer to 8:00, 9:00, that's when that rain chance is going to climb. it is also going to become windy. not only do we have to worry about rain tonight, but the wind is another big story. sustained 20 to 30 miles an hour and we may see some 40 mile an hour wind gusts tonight. so, if you got anything light or loose in your yard, you may want to secure that. you don't want your trash can to become your neighbor's early tomorrow morning and that's certainly a possibility. 9:00. it may be heavy from time to time . and we will be contending well. we aren't forecasting severe weather or anything like that. but, you know, it's not often in the month of february that you hear rumbles of thunder in this part of the country. that's certainly a possibility tonight. rain kind of hangs with us through the early morning hours of tomorrow, but, by about
done with it. it will be a breezy mild day if you were watching this morning, this is a change. we have bumped the forecast high tomorrow up to 59 . i think that will happen around late morning early afternoon. and then mid-to-late afternoon we will start to fall into the 40s. 59 . ok, it it's 12:20. jeff doesn't go on the air until 4:00. he's over there working hard on the forecast right now. and i have a feeling that he may bump it up. he's -- i don't know what he's doing over there. but -- it's just a sneaking suspicion. you will have to tune in at 4:00 to find out for sure. we get some colder air guys on the back side of that rain. a small chance for some snow showers late wednesday night into your thursday. and then looking like a much better chance that we see some snow early next week. >> "q": there, you go. mother nature's cooperating right now.
spring thing. >> "q": yeah. >> laura: prognostication. >> "q": buckeye chuck and punxsutawney phil -- i don't know which one -- >> samantha: next week, looking pretty cold. >> "q": we will see what happens. all right. thank you very much. well, chances are all of us may have received a gift about a month or so ago that we just didn't want, you know, you got it, you looked at it, you smiled and said -- thanks. i really didn't want it at all. well millions of americans returned items they recently received. and you would be surprised as to where they end up. long gone. but it's the most wonderful time of the year for michael ringleton. >> organized chaos. >> organizers of liquidators out of chicago. this is where many items go when they returned to certainlies like amazon, home depot and sears. is this almost like santa's >> for sure. >> most of it is customer
>> his warehouse is overflowing with everything from go-pros to x-boxes and an entire wall of drills. once tested he will auction them at about half the price. >> the consumers consume. when they return it, it's put become on the shelf at the store, that's not the case. >> his business has jumped 1000% in the past four years. online shopping is a big reason why. americans returned 260 billion dollars' worth of items in 2015. tobin moore, c.e.o. of octoro.com helps stores process those returns. he says restocking items can be expensive for retailers. >> so everyone the retailers liquidate them for pennys on the dollar or in some cases throwing them away in land fills just because it's more cost effective. >> items that survive end up at discount retailers and are also sold online. >> so this is what i am looking for. >> dave came to shorewood showroom.
grandson at a deep discount. >> what's a wrong item for one else. >> reporter: a returned item rebought -- >> looks like it's brand new. >> reporter: at the right price. >> laura: all right. the super bowl is nearly a week away. but the super bowl commercials, out. and this one has gone straight you always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows yes, it shows >> laura: those little hot dogs looking for a family of heinz con i did meanies. it's slated to air during the game. ad. right here on cleveland 19. cbs is your home of super bowl 50, the carolina panthers, they are a 6.5 point favorite over the denver broncos and we have it all covered right here on cleveland 19.
