6:15 am
the first day of schoo >>laura: the first day of school is one for the books. no major issues reported on day one. classes are now in session for counties and highlands and citrus counties. polk and pasco, those start next monday. sarasota follows next tuesday. and then only about nine months until summer vacation again. and until then, we want to see your back to school pictures. post them to social media for us. apparently yesterday was -- and i was taking to emma to school. it was a busy news day so i think we probably didn't get to show as many pictures as we were
6:16 am
with the hashtag "good day" tb and we'll share these all week long. >>russell: i have to ask you then, how did the first day go with emma? >>laura: great. i love that -- you know, that rush and you realize that -- and i don't get to get emma dressed. so i got her dressed and then you remember to get that one picture. smile, smile, smile! so i'm going to -- >>russell: post it. >>laura: iut put it on twitter. and dave, man, way to bring the sunshine, bud. >>dave: imagine like we were talking with russell at 9:00. it was -- maybe it was the day before that. it was miserable outside. ponding on the roadways and everything so the sun comes out for the first day of school and today another great start to the day but it will be a stormy finish. it's going to take some time to get these storms brewing today like they did yesterday but once
6:17 am
of strong ones. brookdale, bayshore camera, you see a little leftover cloud cover from last night. i also noticed when i was driving in, a couple of patches of fog here and there. in general it's a typical start to the nice little august day. we have 75 degrees in brandon, wesley chapel, lakeland, winter haven. frost proof, good morning. southeast polk county looking great now at 75. up to crystal river, we're at 72 in the warmest is not degrees. the winds are relatively light but i point your attention to the direction of the winds which is primarily southeast so you get that southeasterly wind to start and then the sea breeze will take over this afternoon and i think you're going to get that sea breeze collision very similar spot to yesterday, just east of i-75. it was like 6:00, 6:30 and it was like boom. then the storms fired up.
6:18 am
the lookout for, especially walking out the door now. may not be coming home for 12 hours or so. just keep in mind, check your skytower radar app during the afternoon and especially during the evening as the storms begin to fire up. so low pressure back out over louisiana. it's going to be a miserable day there. look at the rain hovering over southeast louisiana. look familiar? this is what we had to deal with a couple of days ago. a weak ridge of high pressure hanging out on top of the state of rain chances are going to run 40% along the coast. we're going to run 50% inland and the future cast shows us how it's going to set up for later this afternoon. you'll notice everything kind of marching back toward the west. so wherever the sea breezes meet, here is 6:00, everything will start to drift back to the west. if you're along the coast or beaches, you'll look off to the east for the thunderstorms to pop up.
6:19 am
thing. looking toward the east and everything eventually settled back toward the west. this is a very typical, very normal weather pattern we have. hot and humid to start. back to about 91 degrees. that's what we made it to yesterday. no reason why we won't today. 40% to 50% rain chance. once the sun goes down and the sea breezes collapse, you lose the energy. just get back to partly cloudy skies and stey overnight. low 78. tomorrow more scattered afternoon storms. again, late in the day. not early in the afternoon, late in the day with the high temperature around 91 degrees. that means for boaters today, that east wind shifting to the west. water temperatures are still in the mid 80s. seas running two feet with a light chop. high tide 8:17 this morning with a low tide at 4:09 this afternoon. honestly, no significant changes. the heat returns, obviously, and
6:20 am
thunderstorms continue each afternoon. but the tropics are quiet, vanessa. how is that? >>vanessa: we'll take it. thank you. switching over to 6:20. last report i mentioned a pinellas crash with serious injuries at is 19th terrace and ridge road. sky pox is there checking out the scene. only one vikt so far since i've been scanning the area and so far we're thinking single vehicle crash. serious injuries one person has been transported as a trauma alert. looks like we do have the road completely blocked off. so we are continuing to look into more details for this but in the meantime, i would avoid ridge road. looks like you won't be able to pass very well. your alternates here, you can take 119th street. you can also take 113th and we'll keep you updated. >>russell: a little later this hour, find out how kids are
6:21 am
credit. >>laura: further proof that it is everywhere. and then this little mermaid has so many talents, including one that helped a young girl truly introducing dunkin's new cold brew coffee, steeped slowly in cold water for small batches with an ultra-smooth, full-bodied flavor.

6:26 am
the big dogs always know just how far they can go. >>walter: how rough they can be. >>laura: those two are buds, though. >>russell: a lot of dog hair in one house. >>walter: no kidding. i thought that was a very bushy -- >>russell: can you imagine? there's a new dysons in that house. see you later, man. still ahead this morning on "good day," an olympic sized mystery is solved. what is in rio. >>laura: and then a love story for the ages. truly. alcides segui is on that. good morning. >>reporter: good morning to you. a couple married for 60 years spend their last hours together thanks to the folks here at regional medical center in hudson. we'll talk more about this touching and really heart

6:31 am
coast and i think 50% inland. >>vanessa: thanks, dave. and still caution drivers to avoid the area of pinellas county. this is the serious injury crash. we're still watching this ridge road at 119th terrace north and still seeing the big blockages there on the ridge. we do have work arounds for you here, 113th street, 119th street so we'll keep an eye on this one. sky fox will be overhead for a little while. we'll get you updated on the drive looks good heading northbound, 275 from the 175 exit in pinellas all the way over the howard frankland bridge just a 15 minute ride. eight minutes apiece here northbound times on 75 between the selmon and fowler avenue and then i-4 west toward the downtown interchange from the 75 exit. >>laura: a moon in south florida has a brain eating amoeba. he went swimming in unsanitary water on private property in
6:32 am
the people who get the bacteria die. the person is receiving a new medicine from orlando, though. health officials are hoping this will save his life. >>russell: a suspected drunk driver accused of causing a deadly wrong-way crash is in custody after three years on the run. christopher ponts was arrested in spap. he disappeared in 2013 after he cut off his ankle bracelet while on house arrest. he's charged with killing 20-year-old william angel and injuring two others in a head-on collision. the extradition process has already started to bring him to florida. >>laura: authorities say a tampa man died while diving in the florida keys. 41-year-old was underwater. family and friends noticed he was in trouble. he had trouble breathing so he and his son quickly surfaced. paramedics rushed him to the hospital where he was later
6:33 am
of death. >>russell: public memorial service for local radio host dave mc kay this evening. he died suddenly last week. he was 55. his memorial will be held at the mahaffey theater at 5:00. doors will open at 4:30. >>laura: for all you romantics out there, for 60 years, a bay area husband and wife will be by each other's side through everything. but because of a tragic twist of fate, she was not g there in his final hours. >>russell: so when two local hospitals found out about this, they joined forces to grant a final wish. and alcides segui is live at the hospital in hudson to tell us about a sad and heart warming story at the same time. right? >>reporter: yeah. it's exactly right. it's one of those stories that will melt your heart. they've been married for 60
6:34 am
of a perfect couple, right? they hadn't been straighted for longer than a day. black and white picture, perfect, everything was perfect. but obviously with time and mr. foster was an elderly man and he was ill. he was in the icu at florida hospital north pinellas. they wanted to spend their final hours together and mrs. foster was getting ready to go visit him at the hospital when she injured herself, requiring the paramedics. regional medical center, bayonet point in hudson. they were in two separate hospitals, 30 minutes apart. obviously time was running out because mr. foster was growing ill. so the staff here at the hospital really started to work hard, try to figure out how to bring mrs. foster down south to pinellas county to be with her husband. so the crew here, including a registered nurse by the name of
6:35 am
supervisor, diana henry, started working closely with american medical response and the transport company agreed to pick her up and take her to florida hospital north pinellas free of charge and the result is that amazing and touching picture, cherishing every second they had together. the family wrote a letter to everyone involved. the transfer allowed their nana, quote, to have her last moments with our you would ever meet. he acknowledged nana with a squeeze of his hand and then pappy passed away 48 hours later. and upon leaving the room, nana said to the staff, i can't believe you did this for me. as a family, we would like to say we cannot believe you did this for us. just again, just a heart wrenching and just one of those stories that will melt your heart. coming up on "good day tampa

6:41 am
>>dave: beautiful shot over the lakeland camera this morning. looked like this yesterday, too. we have another fantastic start to the day. coming off a evening. i'm sure a few of you were thinking, i not going to rain today. it's not going to rain today. then it was like, boom. 6:00, 7:00 last night, those storms really started to fire up. guess what? same type of setup for today. it may take all day to get there but we will and then we will have a few strong storms late today to finish off thursday. nice start at palm harbor. west chase 75. new tampa, mostly clear and 74
6:42 am
hours ago, it was a little bit of patchy fog so be careful of that but i think as the sun comes up, it will quickly take care of the little fog we do have out there. brooksville, you're at 73. same for inverness, mid 70s. a beautiful start to the day for friends in bradenton. 75 in englewood and a nice, comfy, low to mid 70s east of you have weak high pressure down here. you can see the spin. then you've got pressure back out to louisiana. notice along the coastline, it's still raining in part of our state. west tallahassee, panama city to pensacola, across i-10, very heavy rain projected for new orleans today. that's the influence of the low. for us we have a southeasterly wind. watch the east coast sea breeze start to work across the state by about 4:00, 5:00, you'll get the sea breeze from the west
6:43 am
close to probably east of i-75 just like they did yesterday and all of a sudden, you'll go from nothing, nothing to boom, big thunderstorms everywhere. there's a little bit of drier air in the mid levels of the atmosphere. i don't think that's going to play into it too much today. i think it's going to be a very -- what i like to call normal day with the rain chances running 40% along the coast, 50% inland and typical summer weather pattern is something that i think is going to linger, at least next week. elsewhere, the tropics are quiet as well. so that's good. so we've just got a nice few days of the way it should be. 91 degrees for a high temperature today. hot, humid, scattered late day storms. if you have to be out and about between 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 tonight, keep checking the skytower radar app as the storms quickly fire up at that point. everything dies down tonight. once you lose the heating of the
6:44 am
partly cloudy, low 78 degrees. and then more scattered afternoon storms tomorrow with a high temperature of around 91. that gives boaters plenty of time today to get out and enjoy yourself. even if you're inland and you're doing some boating, but by 4:00, 5:00, i really want a close eye on the sky and/or skytower radar app. that's when i think the storms really start to fire up. 91 is a popular number. wouldn't you say? going into the beginning of next week and rain chances 40% to 50%. >>vanessa: all right. and right now, dave, we're watching 275 southbound right before you get into the interchange. we have reports of a crash somewhere between hillsborough and mlk. i can't find it on the fdot cameras but i'm seeing delays. we do have an outside lane blocked in the southbound direction with some delays that are stacking up. this is the area where the crash is reported so it does indeed
6:45 am
slowing down to 40 miles an hour in that particular area with some lighter congestion building back towards bearss avenue. so make sure you're giving yourself a few extra minutes out the door. we'll keep you posted once we learn it clears out. 6:45 right now. get over to charley belcher as we always do this time of morning. >>charley: good day. what do you think? it's very light but can you tell? does it look pink? >>vanessa: i was going to say peach, but yeah. >>vanessa: okay. it's pink. >>charley: good. i want to be pretty in pink. >>vanessa: you are pretty, in pink. >>charley: it's a fox 13 pink shirt. why would i be wearing a fox 13 pink shirt, you might ask? >>vanessa: i have a suspicion. >>charley: i thought you would ask. >>vanessa: why might you be wearing a pink shirt today? >>charley: i'm glad you asked. october is breast cancer awareness month and we're
6:46 am
cancer society, makes strides against breast cancer this year. here is why. linda joined our station this year. breast cancer survivor and she's passionate about making strides against breast cancer and teaming up with the american cancer society. she went to the station and she said, look. i now join with the power of fox 13, the most powerful name in local news. i want to get behind this effort and the powers that be at the station said, let's so we're going to make a big deal out of october and getting people on the bandwagon for breast cancer awareness, raising money for research. it's one of those things, vanessa, i feel like cancer in general is like a mine field that we're all kind of gingerly taking steps through this field and, you know, leukemia hit my family. i stepped right on it, boom. my daughter is a leukemia survivor but -- and then you're
6:47 am
avoiding it but all around you it's happening to people and then i stepped on another mine just a few weeks ago when i got a phone call from one of my dearest, oldest friends in tampa and she said -- her name is amy. she said i've been diagnosed with breast cancer. >>vanessa: i'm sorry. >>charley: yeah. had a double mastectomy and my wife and i took her to dinner the day before she was going to surgery and it's just crazy to sit and talk to a woman who is about to face next day. fortunately for her, she thought she was going to have to go through the chemo. she does not have to. she's on medication forever and she's doing well. she's doing really, really great now. but there you go. so if you haven't stepped on one of the mines yet, somebody you know probably has or you've been lucky or seen it blow up in the distance. that's my analogy. it's bound to affect somebody you know eventually. why are we talking about october
6:48 am
