transition process. they had no 90-minute discussion in the oval office focusing on domestic and foreign policy. the president-elect also met with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and paul ryan. one thing trump vowed do is appeal the affordable care act. not only did president-elect trump meet with president obama, the future first lady met with michelle obama for the first time. one thing they have in common, both will have raised young children in th 10-year-old barron trump will be the youngest boy in the executive mansion since jfk jr. melania trump will be the only one to grow up in a communist nation. >> hillary clinton was seen near her new york home on tuesday. she described herself as heartbroken. a woman was hiking, and she said when she was hiking out of nowhere came hillary clinton

morning rush hour, that delay will most likely get worse. i will keep an eye on the drive times for you and help you get out the door. if you are traveling in the rest of tampa bay, we are not dealing with anything else major. in manatee county there is an accident in bradenton. this is not blocking any lanes. on 301 boulevard at first street there. in pinellas county our drive times are looking pretty good along u.s. 19. you can see that in the southbound direction boulevard to gandy boulevard your drive time it 11 minutes and speeds are at 47 miles per hour. ulmerton road is not backed up. a great time to get out the door. in polk county, state route 60, i-4 and polk parkway are pretty quiet. if you have any issues on the roads accepted me an email -- send me an email. you can always email me @road warrior at wtsp.com. things are quiet. we are kicking off the first
outside. a little bit of light over the airport. shouldn't be any issues for you over the next several days. in fact, looking straight through the weekend, we are forecasting temperatures around 80 degrees for the next several days, and then overnight lows, yeah, those are going to be getting chilly over the next couple of overnights as we continue to move that dry air in place all across the area. now, out the door this morning one thing you want to watch out for, some patchy dense fog that we are seeing especially just north of the bay area into pasco and counties as well. not widespread, but there is some of that out there. so if you do take this route along i-75 keep in mind at times your visibility could be reduced. other than that, clear skies, and we are going to move this out pretty quickly as we are getting you out the door this morning. something else you probably noticed if you got up early because the dog needs to go out, anything like that, it's
especially in brooksville. 49 degrees. 61 in tampa, st. pete, but then there are areas east of i-75 and north of i-4 where it is pretty chilly this morning. so take a light jacket with you. you can ditch that later on this afternoon though because your veterans day high temperature today right around 80 degrees. again want to extend a big thank you to all of those who served our country. overnight tonight those temperatures do some down similar to what we are going to see as you are getting out the door this morning. by 7:00 though we start to warm the numbers back up, and then 9:00 actually looks really, really nice later in the day. your lunch hour picture perfect. temperaturn a lot of sunshine. notice we have got some thin clouds from time to tomorrow. by the time the kids are coming home from school and you're coming home from work, we will see upper 70s to near 80 degrees once again. but heads up. as you are heading out for this evening, friday night, a lot of us have plans to get out there and enjoy the weekend, it will start to get chilly pretty quickly. if you are going to stay out past 9, 10:00, it will get pretty cool. you want to make sure you have

across tampa bay, and a big focus on getting much needed help and recognition for the men and women who serve our nation. 10news reporter sarah hollenbeck is live in the newsroom with the three big initiatives to help our veterans. sarah, some of these are difficult topics? >> the most difficult is talking about suicide. 22 of our nation's veterans commit suicide every single day, and they are not getting the help they need. but there is a brand new treatment center in san antonio, texas, that could serve as a model healthcare centers for veterans. it's called warriors heart branch, they treat ptsd with a program that focuses on group therapy, fitness, spirituality, and working with therapy dogs. a lot of you have heard about these incredible honor flights to allow veterans to travel for free and see the monuments built in their honor, but some veterans may not be able to travel because of health concerns. now honor everywhere is

email@example.com. call us about a program, a great student, teacher, something you want us to highlight. we would love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org. let's get over to road warrior hilary zalla. >> it has been a busy friday morning. let's start in pinellas county where we have two big issues. the first southbound 275. an accident completely blocking the exit ramp to mlk street. you cannot exit here. as you frankland bridge you have to skip and get off at roosevelt boulevard. there are two cars involved here. we are learning injuries are reported. the tow truck is there, so this should be cleared in the next 30 minutes or so. also go live to u.s. 19. here is our other big issue. there is a crash just before whitney road on southbound u.s. 19. so this is near belleair road. and there is only one lane blocked at this point. you can see it.
but you still have heavy delays. look at this. that backup at least a mile. and this, of course, is veterans day, so we don't have as many folks on the roads. but our morning commute is still tricky. if you are heading this way, your best alternate route, if you do usually take u.s. 19, you do have some other options if you are heading south from the northern part of pinellas county, you can of course take the bayside bridge. back to our maps. in hillsborough county i am still dealing with along southbound i-75 at i-4. the drive time is 19 minutes from 56 to the selman expressway. live to sky10, this crash is blocking that right lane on the exit ramp to southbound 75. so we do have heavy delays here. and in manatee and sarasota counties at least we are quiet for you guys. not dealing with any major accidents. ashley. all right. somebody is looking good out there. weather-wise we are all doing terrific. look at this gorgeous sunrise
again. also notice nothing but high then cloud cover. that means our temperatures that, yes, are pretty cool to start, will be warming up quickly. 61 now in tampa. we have some 40s up into the nature coast. 44 right now in brooksville. so especially for you, make sure you grab the jackets as you are getting out the door this morning. 49 in crystal river. most of us are starting off in the low-to-mid 50s as you get out the door this morning. nothing but a few high clouds. that means we will warm things since our dew points are actually going to keep falling as we head into the weekend. those will actually be down in the 40s by saturday morning. so the dew points are a measure of how much moisture is in the atmosphere, but they are also a good indicator of how low the temperatures could go. in this case, we are not going to get down to 42 degrees in tampa, but we will continue to see that drier air filtering on in. so eventually what's going to happen is we run out of nighttime hours and start with sunshine warming things back
