significant cloud cover today to at least shade things a little bit. so it's pure sun and it's an east wind. in september you'll be in the low to mid 90s. once again, we talked about this the past couple days, the best chance of rain south of tampa bay. it happened again. a little bit of moisture, fort myers and sarasota county a few late day showers but not that many. you can see them on skytower. dry around the bay area. if you are watching in and sarasota counties, quick moving showers arriving from the east. some of them are locally heavy. some rain in northport, englewood, venice, myakka city, arcadia. south of tampa bay, you could witness a quick-moving shower, a flash of lightning and that's about it. about the same thing tomorrow. maybe a slightly better chance of showers around the bay area. still 93 in tampa.
88 in naples. the dry air -- we had a smidge of drier, low humidity this morning. now the dry air's moved away. the dew points in the low 70s around tampa bay and that's like summertime. but the dew point in gainesville is pretty good. 57. 61 tallahassee so a slight drop in humidity to our north and a lot of this, by the way, is due to the remnants of has been giving us a north-northeast wind the past couple days helping to usher in dry weather. we're in a little calendar count down row. this is the one talking about fall. 14 days until the first day of fall. the atom nal equinox. 34 days to the lightning opener. four to six weeks until the average first significant cold front arrives. then a big holiday, 53 days until halloween.
we'll see a significant drop in temperature. plan on it by the middle or second half of october. one day left where the average high in tampa is 90. beginning the 10th it's 89. baby steps along the way. couple things to watch. we have an area of low pressure. this is new, northeast lesser antilles. we have one back here, a big wave, which has moved off the coast of africa. here's the deal. of development in the next two days. 20% the next five days. the one behind it has a better chance of developing. this one will likely stay across the open atlantic and never bother land. what is interesting about the european model is it's showing a weak area of low pressure along our east coast sometime next week. a reflection of that first wave. this is the second one which will likely end up in the
hurricane. this one is no threat. the first one probably won't develop but it's showing remnant moisture over the state next week. right now 93. the dew point 71. winds are light, 3 miles an hour. satellite and radar shows high pressure to our north and a fast-moving flow from the east. a heat wave up and down the east coast. that development across the caribbean. not a big 867 in new york, 87 in columbus. 94 in raleigh and columbia. 92 at atlanta and 92 in nationalville. for us, mostly clear. a half moon and down to 76. tomorrow, sunshine with a few storms. mostly south of tampa bay. back up to 92. and the outlook for saturday, partly cloudy, afternoon storms
east-northeast winds 10 knots. seas 2 feet. light shop. high tide 8:44 tonight. the seven-day forecast is uneventful. slightly better chance of storms next week as temperatures stay in the low 90s. mark? >> flu season's just around the corner and there's a change in vaccination guidelines. it's a change that some kids are not going to like. tonight at 6:00 we'll talk with dr. jo and she'll explain what's different and how many get the shots. >> this elephant in washington has new shoes. they're not exactly a fashion statement. why zoo veterinarians say this 41-year-old elephant needs special shoes. we've got movement in the polls in the race for the white house with.
trump facing new he appeared to mock a
reporter with a disability. "you gotta see this guy. 'uhhhh i don't know what i said, i don't remember.' he's going like 'i don't remember'." "putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. i don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist." "you have to be wealthy in order to be great. i'm sorry to say it." "he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured."
we have some changes tonight in the race to the white house... the there's changes tonight in the race to the white house. the election map shifted. the polls tighten in the swing states. craig is here with new numbers. >> you have no surprise in the state of florida if you look at the numbers. let's start there. this race has been tight in our state basically tied.
13 poll. quinn peck is showing the same thing. 47-47 and that lines up with others. that's not the surprise. let's move on to the next big swing state: ohio. here you have donald trump edging ahead of hillary clinton and we're seeing that in other numbers as well. with the concerns about manufacturing in ohio and donald trump's call to build a wall, mexico trade deals, that's a mild surprise given the movement. in north carolina we have hillary clinton holding on to a slight lead over donald trump. the economy of north carolina is a bit different but it's historically been, with one exception with president obama, has been a reliably republican state. then what has been a reliably democratic state in pennsylvania. hillary rodham clinton has a
donald trump is within striking distance. you follow these numbers for traction. he appears to have traction and with that, that's driving changes for donald trump. he's certainly been far more disciplined the past couple weeks and that has helped him rebound for what was a very bumpy ride the two or three weeks following the democratic convention. with this, the race has effectively reset to where it was in the middle of july. that's where we find ourselves 2.5 w national debate. >> wow. speaking of debate, last night they weren't on the stage together but they had a town hall where one did an interview then the next one. i've been hearing a lot about this today. how did you score? what do you think? >> pretty rough for both of them. their advisors may be cringing for different reasons because it didn't go the way either side would have wanted. donald trump, speaking in generalities.
he gets into points where he talks about a secret plan to destroy isis that involves maybe new generals developing a plan. with this, i think he took some lumps but hillary clinton also took some lumps as it relates to style. she was very defensive and prickly. this was because matt lauer focused the first part of a forum that was supposed to be focused on military issues on hillary clinton's email controversy but clinton was unable to redirect looked uncomfortable and it shows the trump camp where they have an opening when they go head-to-head. this would have been a very good day for gary johnson had he not committed a very bad gaffe today. with that, that's where we are heading into the stretch run. >> all right. lats lots more changing. a new colonel will take other macdill's refueling wing. he'll assume command this
since 1986 and comes from keesler air force base in misses. the 927th air refueling wing flies the stratotanker. it's a shocking crime and a shocking arrest. a 10-year-old by charged with murder. why police say he killed a 2-year-old relative. a big controversy for a florida wal-mart because of this florida wal-mart because of this 9/11 - marco. - polo. - marco. - polo. marco? marco? but it's not a game

his mom thought he had the
flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are. while uncommon, meningitis b can lead to death within 24 hours. trumenba is a vaccine for 10 through 25 year olds to help prevent group b meningococcal disease. trumenba should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects were injection-site pain, fatigue... headache, muscle pain, and chills. ask your doctor or pharmacist about all the risks and benefits of trumenba and tell them if you've received any other meningitis b vaccines. meningitis b can be spread by typical sharing like... a drink... a spoon... a kiss. it all started here... it might have been prevented with trumenba.

kirkman road, anybody who had been there 1:40, 1:45, who may have seen a vehicle fleeing, a reddish or orange vehicle with a black stripe, they call the orange county sheriff's office and provide that information. it may be -- they may think the information is insignificant but it can be vital to piece everything together. >> reporter: investigators say just the littlist bit of information could case. they don't have a good description, a heavyset man with bushy eyebrows and short hair. the robber, who wound up shooting and killing the husband didn't get away with the purse. he ran and got in the car and took off. if you have any information on this crime, you're asked to call the orange county sheriff's office. what a shame. thank you. a 10-year-old boy charged with killing his 2-year-old

"you have to be wealthy in order to be great. i'm sorry to say it." "he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured."
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. he wears it like a crown. "make america great again". but trump made his shirts in bangladesh. his ties in china. act, the real donald trump outsourced his
products and jobs to 12 different countries. so don't believe the hat. you can't make america great again, if you don't make things in america. you know, some people, they shop all over town to save money. i just go to publix, find the signs with the deals and save. when you add it all up... it's a lot. that's how i save at publix.

now, this is coming out of ucla health. what they're saying is a study was done last year that showed kids that didn't have any activity, they were pretty much forced rest for five days, did worse than kids that got back to activity two or three days later. so a lot of changes occurred in the last couple years. >> wow, that is different from what i was hearing. so how should we treat kids who suffer concussions. >> the doctor who ran the of that ucla health concussion clinic. he says start them off slowly. maybe two or three days, light activity that might be on a treadmill. then you introduce movement, eventually you introduce things where they have to think, maybe agility or sometimes running where they have to do patterns but that takes place over time. so if they have symptoms, you can also kind of dial back.
personalized treatment for each and every child. as far as the cell phones go, he says when you isolate them, don't allow them screen time, that makes them more anxious and depressed. so limit it if they have stomachs but don't take it away. it's a switch from what we heard maybe four, five years ago to isolate these kids. >> wow, i think our kids will be happy to hear that. >> they will be. >> i understand there's a new program starting locally to treat kids with concussions. >> this is the and what they're doing now is recruiting patients. i spoke at length with the doctor that runs that program and what he says is at the shriners hospital they have physical therapy, occupational therapy, they help with balance. a lot of times they have vestibular component where balance is affected by the concussion. it's a clinic that's every day, it's pretty new so a lot of
the best thing is they accept all insurance, even medicare, medicaid and they said they won't turn anyone away if they can't pay. >> good information. kevin is here because scott is on the road and so are the buccaneers. >> getting ready for a big game. the opener. the bucs passing game couldn't be healthier as they get ready for the season opener in atlanta. speaking of atlanta. tebow time. reportedly heading to the not going to happen. not going to happen. know

coast so the rain does its thing then moves west across the water. that's about it. couple showers in hard dee, desoto, highlands county. tonight mostly cloudy clear and a half moon overhead. the tropics, we have something going on. we've got a wave here which i don't think is going to develop but it's interesting that the european model shows kind of a spin approaching florida from the east. we'll watch that. the second one, behind it, has a better chance of this will likely, if it gets going, stay across the open athletic -- atlantic and we track them 24/7. winds are light from the east at 3. high pressure over us. we fly down to that wave, which, again, this is the key. 20% chance of development in the next five days. there's really limited showers and thundershower activity with it.
new york is 86. raleigh and columbia, both 94 degrees. columbus, ohio is 87. 93 nashville, 95 dallas, 90 baton rouge. we stay on the border between dry air to the north and tropical moisture from the south but over time, the dry air loses the battle. so moisture comes back and that simply means a better chance of afternoon showers and thundershowers. espe weekend. the rain chances maybe 30, 40%. lots of dry air back here. that's not going to make it anytime soon. high pressure over south carolina. we're south of the high so winds continue from the east and northeast. a few support sporadic showers . this weekend, 30, 40% rain chance staying nonstop in the first couple days of next week.
september. any showers south end, partly cloudy and mild, 76. clouds and sun tomorrow. afternoon storms mostly south of tampa bay and 92. saturday, partly cloudy, afternoon storms and 92. seven-day forecast, we bring the rain chances up a little bit to about 30, 40% early next week as temperatures stay locked in in the low 90s. so counting down to the game on sunday. one, paul. there was no way the bucs were going to go into this game without a third running back. they had two this week. well, they're not. peyton barber got called up and takes mike james' spot, cut because he's injured. bucs bring back evan spencer. the bucs starting receivers are set. the trio healthy heading into atlanta and that's a huge
last season vincent jackson missed six games and that left mike evans as the only go-to guy for winston. jackson is exciting about sunday's opener in atlanta. >> it's a first start, 0--0 slate for the team and there are 31 teams so i think everybody always has first week optimism and things like that. and it's no different for us here. we know that we have a great opportunity in fro we want to take advantage. >> vince helps everyone out. he's been there, done that. he's been in situations i've never seen so him out there playing is more calm and he just does amazing things. age can do that for you. >> sunday's going to be a homecoming for dirk cutter and mike smith. smith is making his first return
2014 season. smith spent 7 seasons as the head coach. going back to atlanta doesn't have smith losing sleep. he's getting more z's these days. >> i sleep better at night. that's the first thing. it's been enjoyable. it's been refreshing to be more hands on and it's a smaller group that you're dealing with. these guys have been not only the players but the coaches. and our support staff. so it has been fun to get back to just worrying about x's and o's and not worrying about things outside of that. >> and here's our sunday lineup. scott smith will be live in atlanta early for the first tailgate sunday of the season and catch the bucs and falcons here on fox 13 at 1:00 followed by the giants and cowboys around 4:15.
