thank you. seven-year mission to destroy the asteroid to seek out the origins of life, to boldly go where we've never gone before. they want to bring a piece of asteroid back home. round trip, four billion miles and it won't be back until 2023. it's interesting for two reasons. it could contain the basic building blocks for life and also potentially hazardous to earth. it could collide with earth in the next century. remind me of the line, reading everything that's gone wrong and then they say texas not included so i guess we're safe until the next century from a crash. >>dave: i'm not worried about the next century. >>russell: me, neither. >>dave: maybe that's a business
6:12 am
77 the current temperature. i watched that on our website last night, on my phone. it was still cool, watching the launch. it was just great to see, especially since we talked to nasa yesterday about it. chest plant city, also in the mid 70s. good morning, sun city center. a nice start, albeit a little warmer than yesterday and even though you see dade city, brooksville, crystal river and inverness, right? you're sitting at 70 to 72 degrees. it's beautiful outside this morning. there's a little warmer than it was yesterday, running about four, five degrees warmer so there is a difference. 76 to 78 along the coast south of tampa. and low to mid 70s inland. and there it is, all that drier air sitting on top of us again. did you get any rain yesterday? same thing will happen today.
6:13 am
do you know what that means? after you get out of work, you want to catch a nice sunset at the beach, maybe take the boat out and catch the sunset out there along the coast, it's going to be absolutely beautiful for that. just keep an eye out for one or two isolated showers or storms today with a better rain chance -- and i kind of laugh when i say better because 30% is still low for a rain chance but it is better than 20% from sarasota, sebring and then down over south florida in general. i do tropics. a couple of areas highlighted by the hurricane center, here is one. this has a very low chance for development. in fact, a 10% chance. that's it. this is just northeast of the islands and it's expected to move toward the west-northwest. a much stronger tropical wave and you can start to see this one trying to develop here well east of the island. the computer models with this keep bringing it west-northwest and then eventually turn it toward the northwest, kind of following in suit with this one
6:14 am
for development with a 60% chance over the next five days. it's nothing that i think is going to impact the lower 48 but if you are like me, you kind of like to keep an eye on these things. you can do that all weekend long by heading to we're going back to 93 for a high today, keeping rain chances around 20%. and tonight, it's just warm, it's muggy overnight and mostly clear skies and a low of 77. tomorrow partly cloudy with a few afternoon storms. around 30% but again, it's still just a little below normal. light chop for weekend boaters as we have the east wind shifting to the northeast at 10 knots. each and every day, high tide this morning at 7:06. follow that this afternoon with a low tide. eventually 40% the rain chances tuesday, wednesday, thursday and high temperatures near normal. near because i think our normal
6:15 am
89. so there we go. things are changing. >>vanessa: we'll take it. 6:14 right now. one new lane blockage to report out of pasco county and it's going to be affecting the intersection of clinton and prospect road to be careful. you shouldn't see any big delays, i don't suspect. just the volumes are light. use caution and be careful for the emergency vehicles. >>laura: thank you. south korea is on high alert after north fifth nuclear test. overnight south korean officials detected artificial seismic waves from an earthquake near the test site in the communist country. detonation was confirmed soon after that. the north calls it a response to u.s. hostility. several countries are alread condemning the test. >>russell: president obama is back in washington after travelling to laos. he'll deliver remarks at a pentagon ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11

city, oj are just history lesson. usf senior was seven in 2001 and remembers her teachers in st. pete not wanting to talk about the news. >> why, if it's happening in new york city, why is everybody reacting this way here in florida? >>reporter: u.t. junior was a military kid, five on 9/11 and on a base in japan. >> a month prior to 9/11 we had just had a big earthquakes. there were cracks in the road so essentially being a i thought it's just another earthquake. >>reporter: she immediately knew things had changed. >> my dad had a strange look on his face like something was wrong and he went into his room for about an hour, came back all geared up. my mom said, where are you going? he said, can't tell you. how long are you going to be gone? can't tell you. hugs her, hugs my sister and i and left for the elevator and we didn't see him for a month and a half. >>reporter: u.s.f. center grew

6:19 am
>> to become humble people and to have kindness because it's really what it comes down to, the root of it comes from negativity. it comes from the way that you were raised. >>reporter: is there hope of living in a post, post 9/11 world? james, six on 9/11 and from long island, is the u.t. student body president. >> we look at wars in the past and even looking at world war i, two, those have subsided, too, and those were on larger scales. you know, it's really all you know, how we deal with the problem. >> i absolutely think that we at one point will get to the -- a place that is better. i don't think we'll ever get to a pre-9/11 state again. i think us as a generation will constantly pass on to our future generations what happened to us. >> our parents knew a time before. we only knew this. we're trying to go for better. we're trying to make things a life for our kids and for our grandkids a better life for them so they don't have the same fears we do.
6:20 am
hope. if not, what was all the deploy manies for? all the tears my mom had? all the friends my dad lost, there has to be hope. >>russell: that was a nice story. he put that together very well. >>laura: he did. very nice. it is 6:20 now. a florida wal-mart store is under fire for a soda display that some say was in very bad taste. >>russell: and at 6:30, the company controversy. and what a sugar rush. this little girl cannot contain herself at the ballgame and now she [ fly buzzing ] did you know people can save over $500 when they switch to progressive? did you brush your hair today? yes, mom. why? hmm. no reason. golden outside or fluffy inside. deep pockets or delicious ridges. tasty egg or savory bacon. experience dunkin's

6:34 am
caught fire. the cell phone giant confirming 35 instances of a note 7 catching fire or exploding. there have been no reports of injuries, just two weeks after the product's launch, the note seven are being pulled from shelves in 10 countries, including right here in the u.s. out of 2.5 million note 7's sold globally, samsung says it's not found a way to tell exact which will phones may endanger users but they estimate about one in 42,000 units may have a faulty battery. one of those phones may have been sold to a st. pete man. a couple of days ago, nathan says his jeep grand cherokee caught fire. he said he's left his galaxy note 7 charging in the center console when the cell phone exploded and engulfed his jeep in flames. samsung spokesperson released a

- marco. - polo. - marco. - polo. marco. marco? marco? but it's not a game when our senator doesn't show up. i'm patrick murphy. solving problems means showing up. showing independence. and working together. it's why i worked to protect women's health care and worked with both parties to stop cuts to medicare. i'm patrick murphy and i approve this message because florida needs a full-time senator.
6:41 am
>>dave: good friday morning to you. nice. it's mild, it's muggy, i know it's not as cool as yesterday but it's pretty. brookdale, bayshore camera, 76 miles an hour. 7:13 our sunrise this morning. our temperatures, once again, this is not bad stuff. it really isn't. it's a noticeable difference from yesterday, though. a little bit more humidity this morning so the dew points are orive degrees warmer but brooksville at 72. 74 in wesley chapel. same for the haines city area. upper 70s once you get to tampa, clearwater, st. petersburg.
6:42 am
mid 80s so it is really going to be hard to knock these overnight lows down along the coastline. some two to five degrees warmer in general than it was yesterday. i think it's more of a correction than anything as our overnight lows this time of year still average about 75, 76 degrees. winds are light but you see that arrows and the direction mainly out of the northeast which is what we've had the past few days, really the only thing that's been stopping us from getting thunderstorms has been that drier air that we have aloft. it's around again today. so while you look at the future cast, and this may be overdone a bit for today, sometimes that will happen. still thinking that the best chances we have of a quick shower would be south of tampa for later today. they'll be at a 30% chance and tampa north at a 20% chance. once we get to saturday afternoon and evening, more or less are looking at the same
6:43 am
work back from east towards the west. so a pretty typical, early september weekend coming at us. get back to the lower 90s. rain chances run around 20% to 30%. i'm looking at the tropics now. we're approaching the peak, the climatological peak of the hurricane season. a couple of things to show you, a weak, weak little wave over here just northeast of the ilands. hurricane center giving this a 10% chance over the next five even if it was to develop, it's going to make a turn and start to work its way east of the lower 48. now, this is a much bigger tropical wave. this came off the coast of africa a couple of days ago. 60% chance. kind of a moderate potential the next five days but again, it's something that at this point we're not concerned about because the computer models with this want to take it and then turn it and keep it east of the lower 48. so as long as these two do what
6:44 am
keen an eye on both of these waves and anything else that may pop up in the tropics with us by heading to meantime, we're going to go 93 -- 92, 93 which is where we were yesterday for a high temperature. 20% rain chance in the tampa area. south, maybe about 30%. not too much radar. mostly clear, 77 the overnight tonight. for you early risers on saturday morning, warm and muggy. we'll turn that to hot and humid in the afternoon with chance tomorrow 30%. your high around 92 degrees. look how the winds are really setting up this weekend east to northeast. east to northeast. but 10 knot winds, light chop. boaters, are you salivating at the weekend forecast? looks nice. high tide at 7:06 so coming up soon over near the st. pete pier. the next seven days, 92 degrees for a high tomorrow and sunday and about 90 or so for most of
6:45 am
tuesday afternoon. >>vanessa: thanks. and some good news for folks heading out the door. we don't have any new incidents reported as far as crashes, lane blockage. we have a live look here at pinellas county. 25 and 38th avenue north. we have very quiet conditions for you and nice travel times if you're taking 275 right now. northbound direction heading all the way to i-4 from the st. pete side of the howard frankland, 13 minutes. four minutes i-4 eastbound, to mlk and give yourself five minutes to make that trek from i-4 to the selmon expressway taking 75 southbound. >>russell: you heard about this? it's incredible. thousands of wells fargo employees fired for secretly using customers' information. >>laura: up next, how long this has been happening and who could
6:46 am
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. he wears it like a crown. but trump made his shirts in bangladesh. his ties in china. and his suits in mexico. in fact, 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
6:47 am
my son has meningitis b. but how did we end up here? 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
6:48 am
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. ask your doctor or pharmacist about trumenba. in hollywood, director tim burton is honored with a handprint ceremony on the >>laura: director tim burton is honored with a hand printer is
6:49 am
