it's just that it's wintertime, it doesn't get a name. but this was it is 120-knot storm. this was a category 2, category-3 storm. just because it's winter, you get huge storms going up the east coast. this is what they get on the bridge of the sea of the anthem, every day. this is a map that's put out by noaa. the ocean prediction center. it looks like a mess, i know, at home. i'll plain it. this is all the atlantic ocean with the predicted fronts and highs and lows. you can see right here, this is florida, gulf of mexico. you can read that, rapidly intensifying and right here, developing hurricane force, 40 hours in advance. so lit rail, this map comes out on a little fax machine and look at this. how in the world! can you sail from here to here hurricane developing force.

you can see the "u," right here. this trough is pretty much going to stay in play or in place for another 7 to 10 days. even though there could be a couple of days along the way where it temporarily warms up, the jg pattern for us is much colder than average. and we may have a night or two in the 30s or low 40s. winds are up. a couple of fast-moving showers going by. not going to add up to much at all. there is snow coming down in northern alabama, snowing in nashville, along the blue ridge. rain along the grand strand of south carolina. lots of snow on the map east of the mississippi. winds now have been gusting to 31 in brooksville, 24 in panama city. they will gust higher later tonight. so between midnight and 6:00 a.m., it is going to be pretty windy. temperatures holding in the 60s. not really cold tonight because for the most part, the wind comes right off the gulf.

also be the first time they find a missing piece. >> we hope the only time. >> back to the zika now. the cdc is at the highest level of activation and the white highways is asking for emergency funding from congress. >> it's a huge health concern spreading very, very quickly. today, the white house asked congress for more than $1.8 billion in emergency funding. puerto rico, the u.s. virginia islands and american sama are among 30 countries and territories where active transmissions are. the specific mosquito that carries the virus is common in florida and in states bordering mexico. the cdc is at its highest level of activation. and dr. jo explains exactly what that means.
for emergency operations center for the sicka virus because they want to be on the ground in countries like columbia, puerto rico and brazil. and they say they want to have more research for testing. you have to remember some of the testing out there, there is cross reactivity with other viruses that are similar. so it's more difficult to figure out if a person was or was not acted by the zika virus. >> here, there are 16 cases in our state. three near hillsborough county. they are all travel related. they don't involve any pregnant women. >> and dennis ross of polk county co-authored new legislation to help speed up a vaccine creation process. >> coming up the big harch hamp primary is just hours away. >> the candidates know there is no time to waste here. their push for last-minute votes after the break. >> hey, there, chris chmura here.
