7:07 am
now. for trump to win, he's going to have to win all the states that mitt romney won and then on top of that, he'll have to win pennsylvania, florida and ohio. so unless those states work out for him, he's not going to win. >>reporter: and then libertarian candidate gary johnson with a major stumble. >> what would you do if you were elected about alepo? >> what is alepo? sfwla you're kidding. >> no. >> critical city now at the heart of the conflict in syria. for all the media hand wringing that followed, "new york times" had to issue two corrections of its own as it sought to correct johnson. after first calling the defacto capital of the islamic state. it's not. and then mistakenly referring it to the capital of syria. the capital is damascus. it's not clear what damage this

7:09 am
kick, scream and beg for any food you want baby belly it's not a problem. cause with the help of a blue shirt you got the samsung family hub refrigerator with four door flex from best buy. it switches from freezer to fridge to store whatever food you want whenever you want it. yeah that's a t-bone steak and whipped cream, baby needs her vitamins. bring home the win at best buy.

7:11 am
>>dave: a minute and a half. that's when the sun will be up and we'll have another absolutely gorgeous start to the day. you can start to see a sliver as
7:12 am
77 in the tampa net cam. our temperatures are running a little warmer, muggier in general than yesterday. there's downtown tampa in the background and many sweaty people jogging down bayshore this morning. dew points are up a little bit. it feels more like the summertime. look how tiny the sun looks when it's coming up. lakeland net camera, 73 degrees. mostly clear skies. you get an idea we're just as pretty the difference, a few degrees. we're running two to five degrees warmer. the further north you are, the warmer it was. yesterday was an abnormal day in citrus and hernando county in the morning. low to mid 60s. that doesn't happen all that often in september. you back closer to where you should be. so a little bit warmer to start. i still think we finish right back where we were yesterday, about 92, 93 degrees and believe it or not, that's above normal.
7:13 am
normal high drops back to 89 and so we're going to technically be absolutely above normal all weekend long. want moisture levels are higher. i know what you're thinking. the rain chances have to be going up. the dew point is going up. not necessarily because just above us, you go 10,000 feet or so in the atmosphere, there's still just a blanket of drier air hanging around. we just don't have a lot of moisture through the column to thunderstorms. now, 20%, that's our rain chance for today. then we'll slowly begin to work it back up and i'm thinking, by the time we get into the beginning, middle portion of next week, we'll start to tap into a little more in the way of tropical layer so the tropical moisture will gradually return, i think by tuesday and wednesday and in turn, the rain chances go back up a little bit. today 20%, tomorrow around 30%. by tuesday or so, the rain
7:14 am
nothing extreme. what we're doing is slowly bringing rain chances back up to kind of where they should be here for early september. clouds, sunshine, heat. we're back to 93 degrees today with that rain chance around 20%. let's say it's closer to 30%, though, from sarasota south. so 10% better chance the further south you are. then mostly clear tonight, 77 degrees will be the overnight low except inland and north, you'll be in the mid 70s and partly cloudy for 92 for a high temperature tomorrow. we're going with the 30% rain chance for tomorrow afternoon. boaters, an enjoyable weekend for you on the coastal waters. 10 knot winds, light chop, seas running two feet for you and a high tide now, well, eight minutes ago. the next seven days, you'll see the rain chances go back up to 40%. but number one, nothing in the tropics headed toward the lower 48 right now. and nothing extreme for rain.
7:15 am
from the rain we had last week. >>vanessa: thank you. here's a trouble spot on gandy boulevard heading in the eastbound direction. right before you get to the bridge, brighton bay boulevard is where the crash is reported. lane blockage and we're seeing some slowdowns as i mentioned so maybe a few extra minutes to the travel time f. that's along your morning drive. venice, a crash reported in the intersection at shamrock boulevard. that intersection is blocked out so you might to want avoid that area. and then just a seeing some delays and they are growing here. this earlier crash mentioned east bay drive at belcher road in pinellas county. eastbound is that area of concern. we'll check out the congestion points on the interstates. it looks quiet compared to what we're used to seeing this time of morning. it should take you 15 minutes from bearss. >>russell: you're ready to check out at the publix and there you are. it's like saturday and the lines
7:16 am
up and down trying to find -- you always look for the shortest line at the supermarket because that's the quickest way out, right? >>laura: but the most obvious choice may not be the best one. the longer line may be the way to go. >> at 6:15 p.m. in the martin williams on third avenue thursday, cashiers waited for customers. half hour later, customers waited for cashiers, forcing those ready to check out perform a familiar personal calculation to figure out which line is the quickest. >> the cutest checkout girl >> how one line moves compared to another line depends on a number of variables. what they're waiting, what they're serving, mood, experience and so on making it difficult to predict. >> probably the one moving the quickest. >> that logic may seem obvious about the the chief economic
7:17 am
may take longer than waiting for a cart or two filled with dozens of items because the time it takes every person in the express lane to pay and get out of there. >> not worried about speed at all. i like good atmosphere. >> while a few of us judge our lines differently -- >> i like to see who is the friendliest. >> i go by which one is the friendliest. >> i'm trying to find one that's nice. >> i got a go ahead good eye for >>reporter: the rest of us want to be done as soon as possible. there are lurks of force waiting to upset the logic and leave us standing in line. >> the coupon lady. >> sometimes the customer has coupons and their handbag and they have a check and -- >> i guess i look at the demographics of the people. >> the one that has 30 items in the express line.
7:18 am
but that's okay. they can take their time. i'll just find a different line. >>laura: us? >>russell: i don't think i got the answer but okay. i'll go back and listen to it again. tim tebow's signing bonus with the mets. we'll have that for you coming up. >>laura: and then our jennifer epstein has another home town hero segment. >>jennifer: we all know how important back to school shopping is. not just for clothes but the se backpacks. sadly, not everyone can afford new stuff every year. that's where this week's home town hero steps in. he's backing up some needy families and carrying on his mother's amazing leg agencies. we'll meet this week's home town hero a little later on "good day." first we'll say good morning to charley belcher. >>charley: that's right. it's friday. you know what that means. time for some more high school football, time for another good
