6:17 am
may be the low this morning. dew points are in the mid-70s. lots of upper 70s to near 80. enjoy 75 at pinellas park, 76 in west chase, a couple low 70s including inverness and dade city at 74, 79 in venice and sarasota at 79 and you push 80 from sebring to haines city, 76 out the door this morning. raid da is nice and quiet. we have very, very light wind, so w push. the closest rain i can show you is south of sarasota county. these showers meander 5 to 10 mierps off shore raining themselves out. i can't rule out a brief coastal shower this morning. not at the beach, but inland at the beach as the sea breeze gets it's because of high pressure. that bubble of high pressure to the west. we have drier air aloft. that lowers that rain chance and keeping it at 20% to 30% today.
6:18 am
our rain chances are low, the winds are light. if you get under a storm, it could be heavy. noon is the best rain chance between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. by 3:00 p.m. storms east of i-75, by 6:00 p.m. most of our inland zones are done with the rain. we hit 91 for today. here it is on futurecast. here's the clock. here's the late morning/midday spotty showers and storms and a few heavy. this model doesn't show a lot of rain chances overnight. monday we do it again. back to work and back to the bus stop tomorrow morning. slim rain chances favor inland zones on monday but by tuesday as a cold front pushing into the state, before you get excited, it will shift our winds and up our rain chances and our storms build back west. a couple of areas we watch in the tropics, actually three.
6:19 am
this one is moving west-northwest, but the computers models back off on the future intensity of the storm. that's good news, but we need to watch this one more closely because of the path. what's looking a little more impressive is 90-l. this just came off of africa. this will likely curve out to sea. let's discuss the area of interest that will impact the car bean by mid-week. here are the computer models tuesday morning. mo some of of this moisture may head. in the waters, the water temps are very warm. if this is a weak system, you have to watch it closely but not until next week, late next week or this coming week, late this coming weekend, next weekend is when we may have to watch it closely. fiona is moving west-northwest. here's bermuda. it may impact them.
6:20 am
africa could become a hurricane. a couple storms build inland, but not many. really hot this afternoon, so stay cool. a few clouds and steamy overnight and 79 and maybe a coastal shower tomorrow morning. in the afternoon that rain chance is 20%. storms shifting inland 92. on the water today, winds becoming west at 5 to 10 knots. nice chop. enjoy that. boating is too good. seven-day forecast shows the east wind shift by tuesday, so storms building back west, the rain chances subject to change next weekend dependi happens in the tropics. coming up, a tampa school with a historic name. >> but a name with no history to tampa bay, so why is buchanan
6:21 am
6:22 am
take a second to think >> alcides: take a sek and
6:23 am
you got it? think about why that's the actual name. >> anjuli: it may be obvious like the name of a town or influential native, but for one school in tampa they have absolutely no idea. might recognize this man, maybe not. if you recognize james buchanan, you're a presidential history buff. why is there a school in tampa named for our 15th president? fox 13's evan axelbank tried to find out. >> reporter: they wear it proudly. >> they just told important it was to naming the school. >> reporter: they see it daily. have you ever wondered why the school is named after james buchanan? >> that's a president. no, i have no idea. >> reporter: the origin of school's name, james buchanan, is as much a mystery to parents and students. >> i haven't really heard much. >> reporter: as it is to the principal. >> do they ask you who the school is named half? >> you're the first one. >> they know their stuff.
6:24 am
the people that signed the constitution and declaration of independence. >> we're having a great year. we're the first time in seven years, so we hone in on the b rather than james buchanan. >> reporter: who could blame them. james buchanan is certainly no washington, lincoln or kennedy. no, james buchanan is, according to a new book, the worst president ever. >> his character flaw was that he didn't have an idea of what to do. >> reporter: it's a reputation earned by his support of the fugitive slave act and failure to avert the civil war. that's a middle school is named after him in florida that buchanan never visited, a state that seceded while he was president, stun those who still manage his home in pennsylvania. >> kind of amazed that his name,
6:25 am
afield as that. >> reporter: nationwide we found 29 schools named for buchanan. 16 are in counties or towns named while president or for contributions he made as an senator. six are in districts this mostly name schools for presidents. five are in his home state of pennsylvania. one in l.a. is on a street next to a lincoln who directly followed buchanan into office. the only one that defies explanation? the one in tampa. >> from looking at our research and board minutes, there's nothing in the board minutes that would say why they named it buchanan. >> reporter: the district showed harry potter-like books that hold the minutes when the school was named. there is no explanation why board member frank henderson made the motion, other than he also named a school for martin van buren, another relatively
6:26 am
with the tradition at the time that schools were named for presidents or notable figures in history. >> my father always -- >> henderson died years ago. his son said his dad was not a presidentle history buff and left behind no clues that answer why buchanan, but he's proud his dad's mark is felt in unique ways. >> he would come home at midnight every tuts -- tuesday night, so he was dedicated to being on the board. >> reporter: does buchanan deserve the hono president ever" said all 43 that held the office deserve to be remembered even if the values don't hold true today. >> what you can aspire to be is learn from buchanan's mistakes and not be him. >> he's so written to the back pages of history that he isn't even symbolic of failure. in this case a name. >> did they teach you anything in school at all?
6:27 am
say it's still james buchanan 2016-2017 and probably still be here ten years from now. >> reporter: james buchanan lives on. evan axelbank, fox 13 news. >> anjuli: new details into that bizarre double-homicide of a couple in martin county. as gator season gets underway, we show you how hunters are preparing. >> lindsay: dodge. not much movement to the atmosphere. winds are very light. great view over lake mirror in lakeland this morning. good morning to you. radar is much quieter today. there may be a brief, tiny shower near the coast. check sky tower if you're boating. if the rain chance is 20%, it's only until midday, and the west wind pushing storms inland. great day at the beach. grab the shades.

athleticism. it's so pretty, right? it keeps getting better. it's not until 7:04, so we want to point out that you notice some minor tweaks in the sunrise and sunset. a couple minutes later now, and it's gorgeous this morning. a couple of clouds and drier air alot of holding back the coverage of rain today. at the beach and on the water until about lunchtime, isolated shower chance, and then you're good to go as everything shifting bay on the johns hopkins all children's hospital cam. only a few clouds this morning and not a drop of rain just yet. i wouldn't be surprised if the morn rolls on we see a couple of near shore showers and with the the sea breeze that starts the storm coverage at 20% building inland as the day goes on. inland is just as warm as sarasota at 79. it's 80 in tampa and 74 in brooksville.
6:50 am
better than the west wind, so this morning a little extra oppressive feels like the 80s near the coast. highs today as warm as yesterday. 91 in tampa, 90 in st. pete, low 90s inland by hotter by mid-week as we flip-flop the winds to the east. the storms build back west late in the day. the coverage is lower than yesterday thanks to drier air aloft. that coverage today is only 20% to 30% favoring areas east of i-75. i have three areas of interest. fiona looked like it was going to die out later today. still disorganized but looking better. a 30% chance of development the next two days. 60% the next five days, and while this moves into the islands by mid-week, beyond that there's uncertainty. the good news is our computer models are backing off on the strength of a storm, so hopefully we will not see a named storm out of this.
6:51 am
what we will see out of this, though, is a hurricane. 90-l. good consensus show a westerly or northerly track, which means no u.s. impact. this will probably become gaston before 99-l moving north yez. this is in seven days, and it's still over the open atlantic. here's fiona moving west-northwest becoming a depression by early week, and then this tiny dot bermuda. perhaps some rain for them. no u.s. impactses and hopefully no u.s. impacts from the disturbance approaching the cari caribbean. it's still too early to say. watch the models this week. i have everything running on 91 and a few storms shifting inland but slowly. if you're a lucky one to get under a storm, it's briefly heavy. only a few clouds and steamy tonight. any interior storms should end before sunset. isolated coverage thu monday and
6:52 am
west as a cold front kind of flip-flops our pattern. so tuesday and wednesday 92 with a 30% to 40% storm chance. >> thank you, lindsay. after the break, let the hunt begin. >> gator season is in full swing, and it isn't always fun and games.

from an infection. human papillomavirus. who knew hpv could lead to certain cancers? who knew my risk for hpv would increase as i got older? who knew that there was something that could have helped protect me from hpv when i was 11 or 12, way before i would even be exposed to it? did you know, mom? dad? i was infected with hpv. is. while hpv clears up for most, that wasn't the case for me. maybe they didn't know i would end up with cancer because of hpv. maybe if they had known there was a vaccine to help protect me when i was 11 or 12. maybe my parents just didn't know. right, mom? dad? what will you say? don't wait. talk to your child's doctor today.

out. we should see some movement. they will move off the bank. they're usually up on that grass in the daytime. they move out. you watch them move out, and they come out here to feed at night. the biggest one weave gotten so far is 10 1/2 feet. they range from 8 1/2 to 10 1/2. they stay in that range. every foot after -- they almost double in size. a 10-foot is almost twice the size of a 9-foot. i think we end up with to 35, 40 poupd pounds off a decent, 8-foot gator of clean, processed meat. they will a tiny bit of a fish taste to it. it depends on how you take care of the meat. it's a firm meat like beef or pork. the closest thing you could put it too would be probably frog legs. >> anjuli: my husband knows too much about that. each permit allows the holder to
