definitely a hoodie this morning. maybe a sweatshirt, sweater, something to fight off the chilled. yesterday's highs were lower 80s. this morning it's in the lower 60s. that's a 20-degree spread. look at the low clouds hanging around over miami right now. we'll slowly push those out of here. i'm glad a lot of this is happening in the early morning hours. hopefully we get brighter skies in as we approach midday. glad the rn is not coming in during the morning commute. i think kelly is happy about that as well. here are the winds out of the north-northwest that. is the catalyst to drop the temperatures, drop the humidity and bring in the drier air. 63 in pompano beach, 63 in ft. lauderdale. two to three hours ago we were about ten degrees warmer. we're starting off our morning with temperatures falling anywhere from 10 to 12 degrees cooler at this point at 5:15 than we were on thursday morning. it's a cooler changegeith the front moving through. thankfully for t tay the winds

minutes ago. this is southbound i-95 right at griffin road. two right lanes blocked off. the left lanes ar getting by. no need for an alternate this morning. right now i-95 lightly traveled and moving up to speed despite the crash in broward county. again, it's i-95 ssthbound at griffin road where you'll find the accident blocking a couple of your right lanes. let's take you over to miami-dade where we're accident-free. turnpike drivers, coral reef drive to tammy am any trail, ten minutedrive. palmetto expressway southbound om the big curve to oak choke bee, fiveinute drive, traffic moving at 55 miles per hour. a data breach that could impact thousands of college students. university university of central florida says hackers got ahold@ of the social security numbers of 63,000 people. this includes current, former students as well as employees. officials say the breach did not include credit card information,
ucf right now is notifying potentialalictims by letter and is planning to offer them one year of frere credit monitoring. investigators are working now to determininwho was behind the breach. a bond court appearance revealing the four teens arrested for trying to sell stolen pigeons are certainly no strangers to the law. a judge denied bond for the 14 and 17-year-old because of their extensive criminalhistory. in the last couple of days alone they're suspected of carrying out five different burglaries at five different places. detectives say they stole the pigeons and try to sell them to a hialeah pet shop. each bird is worth about a hundred bucks. a gun safety class got personal for a family who shared their heartbreaking story. last summer in cooper city a 14-year-old boy died when he, his brother and a friend were playing with handgun. yesterday the parents of charlie martin talked about the accident for the very first time publicly. dozens of families showed up for the gun safety class.
message. >> today marks six months and four days since i lost my son to gun negligence. he was shot by a friend at the age of 14. what hurts the most about losing charlie is that this was preventable if the gun was stored and secured properly, my son would be here today. >> that's tough to listen to. two middle schoolers were also honored, credited with spotting a bb gun on the way to school and reporting it to police. broward sheriff's office hosts the gun safety class about twtwce a year. your time the 5:18 on your friday morning. still a lot more ahead including this. these gators ready to attack. what you're looking at israrere footage of two alligators caught battling it out. you know you want to see more of coming up. one in four people actually are in the market for a new tv game on sunday.

market for brand new tv because you want to watch that game on the biggest, baddest tv that's out there. ultra hd known as 4kffers more detail, but tougher to notice onsets smaller than 60 inches. so you've got to go for@ the beast. 4k is not even a factor this weekend because the game is not going to be broadcast in 4k so it really doesn't matter. certain lcd or l.e.d.tvs could pose a problem if you're packing tt room because of the viewing angle. it's a little narrow. so screen size is definitely a consideration. >> above 65 inches you start paying a big premium for that larger screen size. we're seeing more affordable 55 to 65-inch tvs. >> if you get a good deal on that brand new tv, avoid those upsells and all the accessories and add-ons that they try to get you to buy. the money you save on the tv means all for all those delicious snacks.
