7:11 am
we've always offered amazing prices on the brands you love, every day. it's that simple. in florida, it used to be that if a child, a senior or one of our four legged friends was trapped in a hot car you and i were not allowed to save them unless we were willing to be sued. has government lost its mind? so i fixed the law to make sure we are all empowered to rescue those who can not rescue themselves. that is the least we can do. after all the love they give. te. a return to common sense. ? we buy any car dot com ? ? we buy any car dot com ? ? we buy any car dot com ? ? any any any any ? did you know trading in your car at a dealer could cost you money? a recent study found consumers who trade in their car pay an average of $990 dollars more. so don't trade in... sell it.... to we buy any car.

7:13 am
to your day. we have a weekend and you don't get any big thunderstorms at the coast. the water temperatures, especially this time of year, go up again. they're sitting around 89 degrees and we're still very close to those 90-degree water temperatures in many, many spots. air temperature tampa, you're at 81. brandon at 77. 77 in winter haven. i just checked the 24-hour temperature change and it's like 0001, you know. very similar to your sunday morning and forecast, too. 92 degrees for a high temp today with a rain chance of 20%. tomorrow notice how it starts to go up just a little bit. so 30%. it will be hot, humid with isolated storms for tomorrow afternoon but still hanging on to the lower 90s. look at this huge, i mean, massive tropical wave that came off the coast of africa. then you've got this still exhibiting some spin and this tropical wave and what is left of fiona.
7:14 am
general. the forecast for that does bring it out to sea. this pesky one here is still showing it wants to develop, that we're going to have to watch. the thing is, this saharan dust, drier air, has been hanging on. it's been trying to block owl of this. it's effectively taken apart, that plus this trough take taken continue over the next four to five days to start to slide toward the west-northwest. once it gets here, southeast of the bahamas, turks and caicos, it's going to encounter an area that's a little less favorable for development. in the short-term, we're not concerned about anything at all. islands are breathing a sigh of
7:15 am
day six, the potential is there for development and one or two scenarios would happen at that point. one is it's likely to stay weak and just kind of float its way into the gulf of mexico next week. tht's what some models are saying. then if it gets a little stronger, it will feel the influence of a trough and then be pulled up toward the north and the east. so short-term, not about it. long term, kee it. these things can be very, very pesky, too. now, this big one, this will likely become a hurricane and maybe even a strong hurricane but you can see by the way the computer models are set up, it just takes it and keeps it. this is the island of bermuda. east by early next week. that's not something that i think anybody will have to be too concerned about and i'm glad because it's impressive off the
7:16 am
ago. really, you always head to where you can track any systems. we're at that time of year where you're getting tropical waves, slowly, every two or three days they come off the coast of africa and any one of them could develop. keep an eye on that with us. it's just that one that will be east of the bahamas by the weekend that i just want you to keep a close eye on. 92 today. hot, humid, 20% rain chance. tonight we're back to 79, maybe 80 right along coastline so that's not going to change. then tomorrow, we'll take the rain chance and bring it up to 30%. so all we're doing is just slowly, steadily working the rain chances back up to where they should be here for late august which is actually closer to 50% and that is where we'll be for the weekend. so 20% today, 30% tomorrow. then a string of 40% rain chances wednesday, thursday and friday. vanessa? >>vanessa: all right. thank you. we'll start off here in the plant city area.
7:17 am

7:32 am
surveys say they're going to pay more than $18,000 a year. that's a lot of money. i was talking to walter before on the air and i said, you and natalie are going to have a baby pretty soon. what are you going to do? he said, well, grandparents are going to take care of the baby, which is wonderful. but you know in today's society, so many grandparents are up north, the kids are down here, they're spread all over the place. so most people are going to face these high costs of daycare back to you. >>russell: tough call. that's a tough one. thanks. talk later, man. >>laura: it's no fun having to wait to use social media on the smart phone. most speeds are acceptable. some faster than ever. they could be better. u.s. ranks 39th out of 95 countries when it comes to mobile data speeds. it's a little above average. south korea has the fastest speed. singapore at second. the worst is afghanistan.

7:38 am
i think -- i think the gymnastics team to me, they were just so cute and when you see -- when you would see the interviews with them and when they were as a group and they were just so much fun and they were so sweet. and a lot of them seemed like little girls. it's just so amazing to see them that young be that successful. >>laura: that athletic. and you know, we heard from their coach who is retiring after and they were really, you know, very emotional about her, too. >>russell: what about you? >>laura: i was proud of rio in the end. i think they overcame a lot of adversity at the onset, especially with zika and several other things. were they ready for the athletes to move into the dorms? in the end, i think you walk away thinking what a beautiful olympic games it was. standout athletes, a lot of great stories. the closing ceremony, and i told you about this, what
7:39 am
brazilian ballet dances and carnival performers and it was fantastical. >>russell: i'll look it up. i think lochte may have to do an oprah interview. i think the only way he'll get over this is do an oprah sit-down. >>laura: do you think people walkway from rio and remember that or the olympics and the performances? >>russell: i have a feeling for now it's the lochte mess. and i understand why rio was so defensive about going into it, there was so much worried about the crime and so many things and then he comes out and says this happened and it turns out it didn't and rio says, no. >>laura: tokyo takes the torch for the next olympic games. >>russell: four years. >>laura: and they're adding new events, too. surfing, skateboarding, sports climbing and karate. these progressiveewports are joining in this. >>russell: brad said that

7:43 am
7:44 am
>>dave: good monday morning. 7:44. river view net camera, visibility great. skies are mostly clear. look at this towering cumulus cloud. that is well, well offshore. first of all, ta -- that shows you how flat the state is. it also shows how in the distance i'm honing in on one cloud this morning, the brookdale bayshore camera. looks beautiful. looks like a pond. this is hillsborough bay. just so quiet, so still sought there. 81 degrees in tampa. brandon at 77. winter haven is also in the upper 70s. so is sebring, so is sarasota. st. petersburg, clearwater, 80s down to the south florida. you look at these numbers and nothing extreme.
7:45 am
20% and rain chance kind of low. the reason is you've got that drier air. i sound like a broken record. the drier air above the surface and that's holding the rain chances down for today. gradually we're going to get higher rain chances as the week moves along. there's fiona, just completely being sheared apart this morning. there's not much left of that. yo to develop some thunderstorm activity around it, surrounded by dry air and there's a monster tropical wave which will be a tropical depression soon. and i mean very soon. you see how far away this one is just coming off the coast of africa. the way it sets up, and i know that the hurricane center every several hours changes the percentages but as of 2:00 a.m., the percentage for this tropical
7:46 am
days, 40%. it puts it in the medium category. this one 90%. again, this is going to be a tropical depression. a tropical storm and probably even a hurricane as well. that's what the computer models are painting so fiona goes away and you have a tropical wave which is just kind of working its way toward the west, not really developing. this becoming a much bigger storm but notice the path for this wave off the coast of africa that just came off towards the east. even east of the island of bermuda which is here. you get a strong hurricane out here which is a likelihood of this, it stays out to sea. this is what we're going to have to watch. even though this is weak and pesky, as it approaches the bahamas, and you're talking about what, tuesday morning or so and works its way into the gulf, it has the potential to develop. you can never let your guard down just because the computer model says it's not going to be
7:47 am
you have to watch it. as long as that circulation holds together and works into the gulf, which is a possibility, then you could be looking at something developing next week in the gulf. but it could also easily develop before that, and then feel the same influence of the trough that this storm is going to and head out to sea. gee, dave. thanks for the options. into the sea or the gulf? that's how unreliable you're talking about this far out. seven, eight days from now. that's why i watch it with us. of course, updates throughout the week as well. in the short-term, nothing to be concerned about. 92 for a high today. stray storm, 20% rain chance. slowly the rain chances go up 30% tomorrow, 40% on wednesday and then back on saturday and sunday to about 50%. vanessa? >>vanessa: a couple of lane blockage crashes. one out of sarasota and one out
7:48 am
bee ridge road, this crash is blocking a right lane so just watch out for the emergency crews there. give yourself some extra time if you can as you head out the door and head that way. unfortunately here, we do have a deadly crash reported. this is the lakeland crash i was mentioning a few moments ago. this is at walt luke road. it's a smaller area but just if that is in your area and you head that way, lanes will be blocked here. always with a deadly crash investigation, expect that closure to be for four hours or so. >>laura: thank you. funeral arrangements are made for lou pearlman. he died while in prison where he was serving time for a ponzi fraud scheme. >>russell: at one time, he was huge in the music industry, launching the crews of two best selling boy bands.
7:49 am
