State police, fbi, and brighton police all conducted a joint operation and cleared the center.

<<mark henderson: "we do believe that this is a part of a larger picture... the fbi is involved they are assisting us.

It reaches beyond the borders.... >>((sadie)) the center opened back up earlier today.the fbi is reportedly investigating this incident.several jewish community centers across the country got a threat at the same time that the brighton jcc did...

((sadie))if you're feeling a little off kilter today, it could be the adjustment to daylight saving time.the 'spring forward' can be tough... but this time of year should play an important role in your family's safety.

Rebecca brumfield explains.

<<rebecca brumfield, reporting: yep, you guessed it.

It's that time of the year again.

Daylight savings time began at 2 am sunday.

But here's a tip for our wabash valley viewers: use this time to switch out batteries in all of your smoke alarms when you go back to change your clocks.

Diana price, firefighter/ paramedic terre haute fire department: "everybody remembers to change a clock..

It's a perfect time to make sure we change the batteries.

According to the national fire protection association, three out of five home fire deaths result from smoke alarms not working.

Smoke alarm batteries need to be changed twice a year for optimum usage.

Matthew graham: "that's why we have innovation.

Innovations like that are to keep us all safe.

So so um, no, it's not really a surprising statistic at all."

They always say that 10 years in a milestone..

But it's also the special number you need to remember when it comes to your smoke alarm.

If the manufacture date is more than 10-year-old, it's needs replaced.

Because, over time..

Sensors lose sensitivity and the ability to detect smoke.

Diana price, firefighter/ paramedic terre haute fire department: "we want to make sure we're staying safe.

If you hear the 'beep' in your smoke detector that means are low.

It's time to change.

We like to get ahead of that though."

It's always good to check smoke alarm placement as well.

Matthew graham: "well, i've gotta kid and he's turning five here in just a few days.

Um, and i do.

I've got a cat and two dogs as well.

So you know, um, it's super important to keep your famioly safe.

And um, keep yourself save."

And while you're at it..

Some spring cleaning may not even be the worst idea.

Diana price, firefighter/ paramedic terre haute fire department: "it's a good idea to always change your um, air filters and everything.

It's one of the biggest things to cause fires.

Also underneath the refrigerator.

Everybody always forgets to clean under the refrigerator... all the dust collects throughout the year.

It's a good time to do some good spring cleaning."for more information about smoke alarms and home fire safety.

I've added a link to our webpage.

Just look for this story and you'll find it there.

Sadie?>> ((sadie))thanks's good to remember that smoke alarms should be placed inside and outside each bedroom or sleeping area.

You may even want to consider using interconnected smoke alarms in your home.

((sadie))local musicians are honored today...through the 24th annual wabash valley musicians hall of fame.18 musicians over the age of 50... who've played in the valley for the past 25 years were inducted to the hall of fame.

The event took place at the zorah shrine center... by noon there were already 300 in attendance.

<<sue scherer, representative: "they need to at least be able to get their way through it.

I mean how they are they even going to sign their name.

I don't think it's a good idea for someone to print their name.

I think it's good to do your name in cursive, your signature.">> ((sadie))representative scherer says without this skill it can lead to losing a generation of learners.

((dan))<<temperature almanac.>> ((dan))<<scattered snow ((dan)) <<scattered snow showers moving in after midnight.

Precipitation threat will continue to spread across the area duringthe day monday.

Near surface temperatures will probably get above freezing towards midday monday and on into the early evening hours, which may allow for more in the way of mixed precipitation during that time.

A winter weather advisory includes fountain, montgomery and vermillion counties from monday morning through late monday evening.threat for snow shower activity may linger into tuesday as a secondary trough drops through the great lakes.

Will go with a dry forecast for tuesday night and wednesday as uppertroughing pulls off to the east.models suggest the highs on monday and lows monday night may be a little on the warm side.

Will bump up the guidance in those periods.

Later periods look ok for now.despite lows dropping to near or below freezing over the next couple of nights, it appears potential for a more damaging freeze with temperatures in the teens is apparent towards the middle of the week.surface high pressure will be over all of the ohio valley through the first half of the period, thus only mid/high clouds expected mid week.

Thursday looks nice for now as does the start of friday accompanied my comparatively milder temperatures.

It looks like the last mentioned short wave trough though will bring in a chance for snow, but mostly rain, on fridayinto saturday.

The last of this latest spell of below average temperatures isexpected to wane going into friday as a warm front moves through for friday when temperatures will range from the low 30s into the mid 40s, then be into the upper 40s to low 50s for sunday.mostly cloudy tonight with scattered snow showers after midnight.
