6:15 am
one people underestimate is the sophistication, creativity, and persistence of scam artists. >> investigators say that it's hard to catch these people behind the scams because they usually use fake names and fake contact information. this is one of those that we have heard over and over again, and it's one of those that you get a check like that in the mail and they want money back. you have to know right away this is a scam. >> yeah. we talked about this a little bit. but it happens for a while. then it dies down. then it comes back. a good call your bank. ask questions. also this morning i got this story to share with you. everybody of course wants to be home for the holidays, but for members of the military that's not always possible. so here's what this guy is doing. some christmas growers across the country are helping to bring the holidays to those who are serving our country. ron tilman set some trees aside to be shipped to off five branches of the military stationed at 65 bases in the u.s. and overseas.

6:17 am
the side right at lutz lake fern road. going live to sky10 and checking out the interstates, this is 75 right at fowler avenue. southbound lanes are definitely picking up. if you are coming from the apex down to i-4 it is taking you about 17 minutes. that's a normal drive time. there is no delays, but things are definitely getting heavier. as we take a live look at i-175 at i-275 in st. petersburg you can see that traffic really hasn't picked up. the drive time is 10 minutes, and that's from pinellas point drive north to gandy boulevard. north across the howard frankland bridge, it is smooth sailing for you. here is the biggest accident of the morning. this is in polk county in haines city. i told you about this at the top of the half hour. u.s. 27 is closed in the northbound direction at county

temperature swings all the way from 81 this afternoon after starting in the 50s and we will start tomorrow in the 50s as well. even colder air is arriving over the weekend. that will be moving through late saturday, and then by sunday starting to really solidify that chilly air in here. look at our monday morning temperatures. we have got upper 30s for parts of the nature coast. if you live in tampa bay, i think most of us are going to be getting out the door briefly with the temperatures in the 40s. it's going to be so if you're loving the idea of some boots and sweaters, sunday, monday those are going to be your days. the rest of the week though, if you like things a little bit warmer, we are doing that for you in the afternoon with 70s if not 80 degrees back in the forecast. make sure you check out our 10weather forecast on the road with our road partners. duv on 105.5 fm, on sarasota talk-radio 106.9 fm and 10 weather in spa nish on maxima

6:48 am
here for the rest of their lives. >> all righty. interesting stuff. we will look forward to the life stream. have you the phone ready? >> reporter: yes. >> we will find you on facebook. >> reporter: okay. all right. we are doing great looking outside this morning. seeing a lot of blue sky out there. that sun coming up. still a little bit of that foggy haze over wesley chapel. over the next hour, hour nava lot of that should start to clear out. the reason we ar cool skies, cool temperatures and not much wind. that's the combination that tends to lead to some fog. 50 in mulberry. a 48 in lakeland. 58 in tampa. low-to-mid 50s up into the nature coast. so it is definitely chilly out there this morning. as i mentioned, clear blue skies. we are going to see a whole lot of that as we head through the day today. what does that mean? big swings in the temperatures. we start off very chilly but we get a lot of sunshine. still high in the sky. heating things up.
6:49 am
your lunch hour, and then as we hit peak heating daytime highs around 80 degrees across most of the bay area. the temperatures drop off quickly as well. back in the 60s by your 8:00 hour. looking ahead overnight, we see those temperatures keep right on dropping and we get you out the door to a bit of a chilly start with overnight temperatures in the upper 50s to near 60 for the bay area. that's after a daytime high in tampa of 81 degrees. big changes in on the way with this frontal boundary that sets up shop as we head into sunday. that's the day we are going to struggle to get out of the 60s for many of us, and overnight, monday morning, we are talking about some of the coldest temperatures we have seen so far this year. so out ahead of the front still near 80 degrees, and then those temperatures start dropping throughout the day on sunday. by monday morning we start many of us off in the 40s if not upper 30s for the nature coast.
6:50 am
in fact, tuesday morning looking pretty cool as well. but we will start to see the warmer temperatures arriving towards the middle of next week, and it looks like we could be tracking another front moving in next thursday. we will continue to check on that. of course, check out our forecast with our newspaper partners. you can see the forecast in your copy of the "tampa bay times" or in the ledger. hilary. it is 6:50. here are your hot spots for morning rush hour. 275 and i-4 in hillsborough county are both in the red. 275 fowler and fletcher taking you 26 minutes from the apex down to i-4. i-4 west towards the downtown interchange, you're looking at a 15-minute drive time from 75 to 275. speeds at 16 miles per hour. now, i told you i would get you a drive time for the veterans expressway, and it is only taking you 11 minutes -- or 12 minutes from suncoast parkway down to the tampa airport. the only delay is at the top of the veterinary, i guess it's
6:51 am
with the veterans expressway. live to sky10 and check out mlk boulevard. there was a report of an accident here, and now that we're flying over it, we are not seeing that crash. great news. if you are heading this way, absolutely no delays and no lanes are blocked there. so if you take that direction, you are good to go. that is not the case in pinellas county. if you travel along roosevelt or ulmerton road, these are the hot spots for rush hour right now. you're down to 30 miles per hour on roosevelt as you ulmerton in the eastbound direction you're at 25 miles per hour. in polk county i am still on top of this accident that has closed down northbound lanes of u.s. 27 through haines city right at county road 546. so until this gets cleared up take u.s. 17 as your detour. that is just to the east.
