pacross country. p>>walter: earlier this month the pair force sent a letter to base pcommanders reminding them they pcan authorize sub ordinants to phandle guns and also established pthree programs to make sure pservice members are in place to rotect their bases. pone of the new initiatives pallows air force members to popenly carry their service istols at their duty locations. pu.s. military has always had the pauthority to allow open and pconcealed carry but it's mostly pused discretion in allowing pservice members to tote weapons pon bases and most bases do not pallow civilians to bring pfirearms onto military bases. pthere's a sign on macdill that pstates that concealed weapons pare prohibited. ptop brass called for review of pactive shooting situations after pan attack in chattanooga, ptennessee. pformer navy seal was killed. pthe gunman was killed in a pshootout and in the aftermath, pquestions were raised regarding pone of the officers involved in pthe shootout and whether he

pthe longer it sits on the bottom pof the bay, the harder it will pbe to retrieve. pcrews and volunteers will be pcleaning up all weekend long. p>>russell: i can't believe the ictures of the people trying to pget into the airport. pyeah. pthey're missing that flight. p>>dave: when you shut down, not pone but all of those airports pfor a couple of days, it's just pa nightmare. plet's talk about what's phappening around here. pweatherwise, we'll start with pheadline number one. pincreasing clouds. pwell, we will have some sunshine pthis morning. pwe'll get that high, thin, pcirrus cloud to come in. pwe finally get back into the plower 70s. pbut then big changes beginning plater tonight and during the day ptomorrow. pcold front drops to the state. plow pressure forms along the pstate. pbottom line, rain, storms
pmay see a few rounds of rain pbeginning tomorrow morning and pthen ending during the day on pthursday. pwe are, per the storm prediction pcenter, under a marginal risk pfor strong to severe pthunderstorms tomorrow. pi think for the most part, it's pjust going to be heavy rain but pwithin those heavy rain bands pthat we get, you may get one or ptwo of these strong pthunderstorms, probably tomorrow pafternoon and maybe even again pon thursday morning. pthrough. pthe least i can tell you is that pfrom now until midnight or so, pwe look nice and quiet. pwe have 54 degrees in tampa pwhich is a huge difference from pyesterday's temperatures in the p30s. pyesterday morning, crystal river pdipped back to like 28 degrees. pstill look. p50 now. p49 in brooksville. p50 degrees for friends in wesley pchapel and 52 brandon, lakeland,
phere is the cold front sliding pever so slowly to the southeast. pout here in the northwest gulf, pwe're beginning to see an area pof low pressure form. pi mean, this is what's been phappening front after front pafter front. pthe difference this time is that pas the front moves into the pstate and this low develops, pit's going to move closer to us pso that's why i think we've got pa better shot of a strong storm lus a better shot at some heavy prainfall as well. pso notice all of this mid level pmoisture which is beginning to pstream toward us. pa little warmer today. pi think today a nice day. pthe increasing moisture, the pfront coming into the state and pthe low developing, all will ptrigger some locally heavy rain pand a few strong storms pbeginning tomorrow and running pthrough midday thursday. pthat's our time frame. psay about 36 hours. pafter that, it's all cleared out pand then the weekend does look pnice.
ptemperaturewise as well. p72 degrees for a high ptemperature today. pbeautiful sunrise. pcheck that out at 7:20. pcloudy, mild tonight, 63 for a plow because of all the clouds. pthe rain is moving in. prain and storms developing ptomorrow. pyou may not have them at 6:17 in pthe morning, but i'll have some pon the radar and that's why i pwant you to tune in tomorrow, pwe'll plan your day out for you pin terms of where the rain is pcoming through. p70 degrees for a high ptemperature tomorrow. pget your boating in today pbecause i don't think you'll be pdoing much of it on wednesday or pthursday. pthere will be a lot of boaters pin tampa bay, hillsborough bay pcoming up that channel there pright on saturday morning for pthe invasion. pweather looks great. pwe'll go 46 degrees for a low. pdo you know what? ptechnically for the invasion, it pis kind of cool and then it pwarms up for the parade. pa couple of days of rain and pstorms and then we're smooth psailing. p>>jennifer: those people will be
pthey won't know if it's raining por snowing out there. pright? p>>dave: better not be snowing. p>>jennifer: good news for pmorning commuters. pit was a rough start if you were pwatching "good day" as early as p4:00. pwe were covering a fatal paccident 275 in between bearss pavenue and 75. pit had the entire interstate pshut down since 11:45 last pnight. pthat's no longer the case. pall lanes are reopen. pyou may see some residual pslowdowns because of that. pofficials off to the side of the proad. pall northbound lanes and psouthbound lanes 275 are back popen. pand the rest of the tampa majors retty much look like this. pthis is i-4 at county line road pat the polk hillsborough county pline. pheadlights, that's the eastbound ptraffic travelling into polk pcounty delay-free and speaking pof no delays, we're ent dealing pwith any in pinellas county. p35, 40 miles an hour is your paverage speed in both directions pthrough pinellas park and the pbay area bridges, they're pchecking in accident-free. psix minutes to cross the howard pfrankland. peight to cross the courtney

lanned parenthood officials are pcalling the charges vindication. pthe president released this pstatement saying, quote, these panti-abortion extremists spent pthree years creating a fake pcompany, creating fake pidentities, lying and breaking pthe law. pwhen they couldn't find any pimproper or illegal activity, pthey made it up. pthe state of florida launched a pseparate investigation into the lanned parenthood last year and phealth department inspectors preported finding several pabortion clinics illegally erforming second trimester pabortions including ones in st. etersburg, fort myers and pnaples. lanned parenthood accused the pstate of changing the definition pof second trimester. p>>russell: it's 6:36 right now pand the sun dance film festival pincludes an unusual double pfeature. ptwo different movies explore the pstory of a journalist in psarasota who shot and killed pherself during a live broadcast pin 1974. pone is called christine, a pfictionalized depiction of her

pwe're sitting in the 50s. p10, 15, even 20 degrees warmer pin a few spots than yesterday. plakeland, you have 54. p50 degrees in bartow. plook at the temps in the 50s. pif you remember just yesterday, pall bundled up, we had 20s to pthe north. pwe had freezing temperatures. pthe freeze warnings, the frost padvisories. ptoday we're in the mid 50s. pbig difference. pas you go further south, look at pthis. pmiami was down to the lower 50s pyesterday. pthey're running 69 degrees this pmorning. pwest palm at 70 so yeah, the pdifference with the winds kind pof shifting is high pressure pworks its way offshore and pshifts these winds to more of a psoutherly direction. pi think between the wind pdirection and even though we're pgoing to have some cloud cover, pincreasing today, we should pmanage to get back up to the plower 70s. pnormal for this time of year and pthese high clouds will continue pto stream in from west to east.
pthat's now beginning to gather pmoisture, some energy strength pas it slowly slides south and peastward and we're going to pwatch a wave of low pressure pmove across the gulf, across the pstate and that's going to rovide the focus, the lift, the penergy that we need for some prain and the possibility of some pstrong storms. pright now it's in its infancy, pthe low over here. pover the course of the next 24 phours, as it picks up want pmoisture and the energy and preally just drives it straight pacross the state, very typical pel nino pattern where we're pgoing to have a low come close penough to bring us a few strong pstorms but definitely some pheavier rain. preally from tampa, pasco county psouth. pthere's your marginal risk for a pstrong to severe storm that's pfor tomorrow. pnot today. ptoday is going to be fine. pwe were looking at tomorrow's ptime frame. pmodels.
