Cyber Monday, Wet Commute, Roadwork Alert

CYBER MONDAY

If you're like me and check your email right when you wake up, your inbox was no doubt, overflowing with Cyber Monday deals. Retailers are gunning for a piece of the holiday shopping pie with big online discounts, and even free shipping offers. Howard Dicus will show us what some stores are doing to boost sales.

SLICK ROADS

You're in for a wet commute this morning. Meteorologist Jennifer Robbins is tracking a steady stream of showers, making for a slick ride.

ROADWORK ALERT

Work on the PM zipper lane will close three westbound lanes on the H1 Freeway between the Pearl City-Waimalu off-ramp and the Waipahu off from 7 to midnight. A fourth lane will also be blocked from midnight-until 5 AM. The closures will happen nightly through Friday morning. Ramsay Wharton will be keeping an eye on your traffic hotspots this morning on Sunrise.

LAVA MEETS THE OCEAN

Lava flowing from Kilauea is entering the ocean on private property just outside the boundary of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Scientists say it's hard to predict how long it will last, but it's the first time there has been an ocean entry in nearly one year. See the latest images at HawaiiNewsNow.com.

BACK TO SCHOOL AFTER FREAK DAMAGE AT FARRINGTON

Students and staff at Farrington High School are returning from the holiday weekend to a big mess. The auditorium roof collapsed Friday afternoon. Members of New Hope Oahu say it happened during heavy rain. The debris could pose dangers because of potential presence of asbestos and lead paint.

BACK TO WORK FOR CONGRESS

Congress returns to Capitol Hill after a Thanksgiving break, looking to hammer out an agreement to prevent falling off the fiscal cliff. A new CNN/ORG poll finds that two-thirds of Americans think no deal would lead to major problems for the country. 7 in 10 say compromise is needed, but that Congress will most likely act like "spoiled children" not "responsible adults" in the upcoming negotiations.

MAKEOVER MONDAY

Plus, a new mom gets a "Mommy Makeover" from the team at Paul Brown Salon and Nordstrom Rack. That's ahead on Sunrise at 7:45.

Hope you can join us!

Aloha,

Tannya Joaquin
