pbasically pinellas side, we had ptraffic backed up from dale pmabry all way to here. pthat was a big headache. pwe encourage folks to plan for psome extra time out the door if pthey have to head this way a plittle bit later, but in the pmeantime, you can see it looks pclear. ptravel times, if you're coming pfrom the tampa side of the phoward frankland to the i-4 so pthe trouble spot we saw during pthe heart of rush hour in the pmorning is pretty clear. pthat's an eight minute ride. psouthbound 75 from fletcher to pthe selmon and then westbound pi-4 from 75 to 275, we will keep pyou posted when we start to see pthings pick up along 27 #. p>>laura: right now pinellas pcounty sheriff's office is pinvestigating a serious crash pinvolving a deputy and a pmotorcycle. pit happened just before 8:00 plast night near the skyway plaza pshopping center. p>>russell: shayla reaves is pthere. pthe motorcyclist, we know, is in pthe hospital and you tell us ptomorrow is his birthday.

6:13 am
pit's nice, p>>dave: it's all about the high pcloud cover this morning. pand here's the interesting pthing. pthese high clouds, it's a pconveyor belt of high clouds. pthey're streaming in from the peastern pacific all the way pacross mexico, all the way pacross the gulf and right pthrough our state. pit's unreal. pthat's an el nino pattern for pyou and we are fully sitting in pthat, and that typically keeps pus cooler than normal. phence the past few days. pnow, the other issue is, pwhenever you get an area of low ressure to even close to the
6:14 am
pwe've got one on friday. pit tends on trigger some strong ossibility on friday. pit looks like the time frame for pthis would be on friday morning psometime, maybe between 6:00 and pnoon, that kind of time frame pfor some of the strong storms. pobviously we'll fine tune that pand make it a better time period pfor you as we get the next day, pday and a half. pbut then after a quiet start, panother round of rain is going pto come swinging through on psunday. pfrost advisory, cancelled. pfreeze advisory, cancelled. pthose high clouds helped out. pbrandon, you need your jackets. pit's cold. p42 in brooksville, 50 in tampa. plet's say we had clear skies pthis morning. pwe probably would have been down paround 43 in tampa and they pwould probably be sitting at pabout 32 crystal river so pthere's your difference. phigh clouds help out in the pmorning. pstill mild down in south florida pand it's much nicer over the
6:15 am
ptallahassee was sitting at 28 pdegrees. pwinds out of the north so the psurface wind hasn't changed but pit's the mid to upper levels and pyou look at this cloud cover and pit's literally just streaming pin. pi mean, streaming in from the psouthwest and i don't think this pis going to change at all the pnext couple of days. ponce again, there will be a wave pof low pressure to form in the pgulf and that all comes swinging pthrough. pyou combine that with this and pthe end result will be a good pchance of showers and pthunderstorms. pfor today, the best way to pdescribe it is filtered psunshine. phigh clouds with the sun pstreaming through from time to ptime. pit holds us back a little bit pfor maximum hypo terrible. pwe'll put a high of 64 degrees. pnot bad. pand tonight we'll be in the 40s pagain. ptomorrow close to 70 degrees. peven though you see that 74, it pwill be a great day because you phave a line of showers and
6:16 am
pquiet on saturday. ponce again, the rain should be paround on sunday as well. pgood morning. p>>vanessa: we're in the brandon parea. pdrivers heading in brandon pboulevard, keep in mind there's pa road hazard reported. pwe don't know if it's debris in pthe roadway or what but it's pcausing lane blockage at hilltop proad so east of 75. pwe don't know which direction pbut of course, we'll keep you osted here on air as well. pjust keep your eyes pealed pmaking your way that way. p>>russell: we're monitoring a pvery tense situation in the ersian gulf. pless tense now than it was. pabout an hour ago, we learned of pa 10 u.s. navy sailors were pfreed by iran. pu.s. military has confirmed pthey've been free. pthey were taken into custody pyesterday after their boats pdrifted into iranian waters. pnine men, one woman and they pwere held overnight at iranian pbase in the gulf.

psystem, donna williams is still phurting because amber's killer phas never been caught. p>> amber was butchered. pshe was just a 9-year-old baby pgirl and i don't want to forget pthat. pif it were not for amber, we pwould not have the amber alert ptoday and we would not have phelped save over 700 children's plives today. p>>reporter: amber was with her p5-year-old brother riding her pbike in this arlington grocery pstore parking lot, a witness saw pa man in a black truck get out, pgrab her and take off as amber pkicked and screamed. pfour days later, a man walking phis dog discovered her body in pnorth arlington. ptoday the kidnapping scene bears pa memorial tribute to amber. pher little brother ricky is now p25. p>> as a family, we want justice

pit's cold this morning but dave psays some worst weather is on pthe way, right? p>>dave: it's friday. pfriday we have a good chance of pshowers and thunderstorms to pcome through but relatively pquiet the next couple of days pand cloudy as well. pyou can see with the tampa cam pthat we have a high cloud cover pstreaming through the area. pit's not going to stop from ushing through, filtering pthrough. p50 degrees in tampa, 42 in pbrooksville. pmid to upper 40s for the inland plocations. pi think we get back to mid 60s pfor today. pwith that filtered sunshine, ponce again, friday morning will pbe a bit stormy so we'll discuss pthat in a few minutes. p>>vanessa: thank you. pwe're keeping an eye on i-275 pnorthbound approaching dale pmabry. pthat trouble spot from the heart pof the rush hour commute pyesterday morning. plooks like it's all clear at pthis point as far as those ptravel times go. pnot too many cars on the roadway pyet so of course, we'll watch pit. pwe didn't start to see trouble
6:29 am
pfolks were on the roadway. pso if you're heading out right pnow, so far so good. pbut of course, if you're going pto be heading out a little plater, you might want to plan pfor extra time. plooks like the average speed pnorthbound approaching dale pmabry is still around 55 miles er hour. p>>russell: florida's death enalty system is punconstitutional. pthat's according to the u.s. psupreme court. pthe procedure violates the sixth pamendment because it gives too pmany power to judges and not penough to the juries. pright now the jury makes a precommendation on the judge and pultimately the final decision prests with the judge. pthere are 390 floridians on pdeath row right now and there pmay be appeals coming from many pof them. pstate lawmakers plan to rewrite pthe statute to comply with the psixth amendment. p>>laura: police arrested a pformer student in connection pwith a crime we talked about pyesterday. pjoe carter is accused of
6:30 am
pkissing her on the cheek. pit happened while she was punloading her car at a campus arking lot. pcarter was recognized by housing pstaff and arrested. p>>russell: governor scott kicks poff the 2016 legislative session pwith his state of the state paddress. phe's asking lawmakers to pass $1 pbillion in tax cuts and boost peconomic development incentives pand the governor focused on the pthreat of the islamic state pterrorist group but did not ropose new policies for pconfronting it. p>>laura: a house panel approved pa bill to require operators to ay hundreds of thousands of pdollars in licensing fees. pmoney would go to the florida pcouncil for compulsive gambling. pthe bill could still allow the pwebsites to operate and shield pthem from possibly be considered pillegal gambling. p>>russell: all right. pwatching the news, fox 13, and
6:31 am
pyou've got your ticket. pand you're a winner. p>>laura: it could happen but ponly if you dish out $2 to play. pyou can't win if you don't play. palcides segui is live on gandy pwhere they are expecting a very pbusy day. pgood morning. p>>reporter: stores like this one pwill be busy all morning long. pgood morning to you, laura and prussell. pfor $584 million, you can buy pevery combination out there and pyou would make a massive profit. plisten to this. pthe lump sum if you walk away pright now, as of right now, is p$930 million. ptake the lump sum. pif you bought every ticket, that pwould give you a $346 million rofit. padd to that $92 million in lower ptier prizes and by flooding the psystem with all the tickets that
6:32 am
pvalue of the jackpot would rise p$200 million which theoretically pyou would win back. pthat's a grand total of $1.2 pbillion in winnings after taxes pand other deductions, you walk paway with $584 million. phere's where the whole theory pgoes bust. pyou'll likely have to share the pjackpot. pduring the previous drawing, 440 pmillion tickets were sold. passuming the same amount is sold pthis time around, there's a 77% pchance of at least one other erson to win the jackpot, not pto mention you couldn't possibly pbuy that many lottery tickets. pyou would have to buy tickets in erson and that's a lot of ptransactions and even if you pdeploy an army of people, it's punlikely you'll be able to hit pevery combination. pso theoretically it couldn't phappen. peven if you had $584 million, pi'm not too sure if i would pchance it on the powerball. peither way, $2 is fine with me.
6:33 am
p7:00 hour. p>>laura: all right. p>>russell: thank you. p6:36 right now. pit's important to remember even pif you win, luck does run out. pnearly 70% of lottery winners, p70%, end up broke within seven pyears. peven worse, several winners have pdied. pabraham shakespeare. olk county man won $30 million pin 2006. phe befriended moore who tricked phim into believing she was ptrying to protect his fortune. pshe convinced him to transfer phis assets to her before he went pmissing in 2009. phis body was found buried under pa concrete slab. rison. p>>laura: the cost of building pthe new st. pete pier would be a pdrop in the bucket for the owerball winner. pyesterday they heard
6:34 am
pcompanies interested in poperating the new pier. ptwo of them are local. pthe third is a subsidiary of the pcable giant comcast. pthe pier is considering all the poptions on the table right now. pthey'll present their findings pto mayor kriseman and he plans pto pick one of them by mid pfebruary. p>>russell: we have some rough pweather possibly on the way. pcoming up, dave shows us what we pcan expect later on in the week. p>>laura: an ohio fugitive is pcaught in florida after telling olice he didn't like his mug pshot very much. pnow he has a whole new one and a pwhole new story to tell. walmart set out on a mission to find you the best oranges. to do that, we first had to find
6:35 am
we logged the miles, put in the hours, tasted a lot of fruit, and shook a lot of hands. but we did it for a reason. so that here you'll find the best oranges we've ever had. they're even backed by our 100 percent freshness guarantee. try them for yourself today at
6:36 am
p>>dave: as we get closer to psunrise this morning, you can pkind of make out the cloud cover pthat we have. pit's a thin layer of high cloud pcover, not the real low clouds. pthe sun should be able to shine pthrough that in a filtered pmanner. p but the good news about this is pthat it helped to keep our ptemperatures up a little bit. pdave, what do you mean? pit's freezing outside. pit's in the 40s new port richey, pwesley chapel, brandon, bartow, psome spots still in the lower p50s. pi've got one area in crystal priver at 37. pbut if we didn't have that high pcloud cover, tampa probably pwould have been at about 43. pcrystal river would have been pdown close to freezing so you pget the picture of that, even pthough it's quite chilly this pmorning, the high clouds did phelp us out.
6:37 am
pcoin, which is this afternoon, pthose same high clouds will be pworking against us to keep the phigh temperature down a little pbit. pso we're running about five to peight degrees warmer this pmorning than we did yesterday. pit is a noticeable difference. pthe wind not as brisk as it's pbeen the past couple of mornings pbut look at this upper level pcloud cover streaming in and you ptypically get into an el nino attern around here, it's a plittle bit close ooler and a little pbit wetter. pthe cooler is from the jet pstream. pwatch this. pthis cloud cover not only runs pthrough here, but it goes all pthe way back into the eastern acific. plook at that. pthat's what an el nino pattern pdoes. pi mean, you just bring in all of pthis like a conveyor belt of phigh cloud cover. pthat's why we're not going to pget into the beautiful,
6:38 am
