@strict new standard when it @comes to lead, one that could @end up costing a lot of money. @channel 3's andrew horansky is @in sebring tonight which is @about 70 miles southeast of @cleveland to explain the @change. @>> reporter: students here in @sebring returned to the @classroom today for the first @time since high levels of led @shut down their schools late @last week. @things certainly looked a lot @different and will likely @continue to. @just hours before the school @they started sebring's @superintendent said she got a @call from the state telling her @the building's lead levels had @to be better and what would @have been okay just a week ago @wasn't anymore so the tape that @was supposed to come off the @fountains stayed amid strict @new guidelines from the ohio @department of health forcing @the school to now tape off 23 @fountains in two of its @buildings because of a threat @they could possibly still pose @to pregnant women and very @young children. @until now, just two were taped. @the superintendent says it's

@afternoon, so it's a brisk @walking kind of day. @you like that graphic? @temperatures in the 20s to get @the day started and we will @move into the 30s for the @afternoon, very average once @again as we are anticipating @seeing a lot of cloud cover, @morning flurry chances passing @through and late morning, @midday temperatures peaking in @the mid-30s for the most part @across northern ohio. @sun peaks kind of -- peeks kind @of like today, can't be @completely ruled out, i did see @a few peeks of blue but gray @out there as well. @late afternoon into the evening @we will have snow showers @spreading across the area. @we are not looking for a lot of @accumulation, maybe a ground @coating or so on areas that @don't have any snow remaining @but it does look like it will @stay less than an inch as far @as the accumulations. @so mid and upper 30s for the @day tomorrow, a lot of cloud @cover around, maybe a few peeks @of sun and temperatures that @will only make it back to @around 30 degrees for the day @on friday in your window nation @seven-day forecast, snow @leaving, phi peeks of -- few @peeks of sun coming out by late @day.
@40s, even a 50 by tuesday of @next week, and that means we @trade rain chances -- or excuse @me -- trade snow chances for @rain. @ when we come back, lebron @james fires back at the media @after some have called him a @coach killer. @here's his response to that @criticism, that's next. @ here's what's coming up @tonight on nbc brought to you @by mercedes-benz of bedford,
@the last four of the seven @years as their pro scouting @coordinator. @he's a harvard garage watt, @like sossi brown. @bachelors degree in economics @and master's degree in computer @science, he played football at @harvard, a four year starter @there. @he was a three time first team @all ivy league corner back and @he is now coming to the @cleveland browns. @so that's interesting. @ lebron james is not a happy @guy as the calves get ready to @take on the suns. @lebron being labeled a coach @killer. @he popped off about that @earlier today. @>> turn my brain off because i @have a huge basketball iq, @that's what they want me to do. @i'm not going to do it because @i've got so much to give to the @game. @no difference for me telling me @teammates or guys how to get @better with their game. @i feel like i've got something @that can help our team @ultimately, you know, i like to @get it, it helped me get two @titles. @>> there he is. @there's lebron james for you.
