degrees again. we are warm, we are muggy along the coast. i will say this. inland locations it's a smidge cool they are morning. we have a couple of showers approaching the coastline of citrus county. they'll fall apart as they touch the coast. in general the rain chances run 40%. coastline, say late morning and then inland locations later ?? halloween excitement is back at dunkin' with 2 dozen donuts for $12.99. drizzled, decorated, and all dressed up for the season, 2 dozen donuts for $12.99.

?? cozy up this fall with dunkin's coffee and espresso flavors. sip salty and sweet with our new salted caramel macchiato or drink in the season with the classic taste of pumpkin.
6:12 am
>>dave: 6:12. look at the difference in temperatures. you get an onshore wind flow, 78 in tampa and then go inland and it's nice this morning for the second morning in a row. lower 70s, friends in polk county and also around i-10, lower 70s and then mid to upper 70s down around the keys. today's weather, we're waiting for the cold front to come into the state so out ahead of it, our winds are going to shift to onshore. you can see it here. that will start to generate some shower activity along the
6:13 am
hours. then like yesterday, you know how everything kind of shifted inland later in the day? same type of thing is going to happen with the overall rain chance around 40%. eventually this front makes it as far south as, say, i-4 and then it just completely washes out, meaning that the majority of the drier air behind this front is likely going to stay just to the north of us. we're going to get a little pih around sarasota, the dew points will stay at 70. mid 60s in tampa. lower 60s in brooksville but by sunday, the humidity comes back in. if you really want to taste that drier air, you're going to have to head up to, say, tallahassee this weekend where they're going to have dew points in the 50s. i'm just letting you know that the drier air is coming in. not a lot of it and not for long. still waiting.
6:14 am
today. this, well, soon to be low pressure system, they went out yesterday and detected tropical force storm winds but it's not named because at the surface, you've got to have winds coming from all directions. you've got to have that surface center. it didn't have the closed low yesterday so by definition, it can't be a tropical system. once it does, they may -- this may be a situation where they skip tropical when it gets to the low level center and make it a tropical storm so the computer models have been really consistent in one thing, turning the storm to the north. the problem has been the timing of it and how far west does it go before it turns north? when you get land that sticks out across the east coast, that makes a big difference so the long term solution is still up in the air because you have one computer model by friday that
6:15 am
then another one has it near the bahamas next friday. that's a big difference. so once the plane gets in there and they input all that information into the computer models, you'll start to see more in the way of agreement but in the short-term, it's going to head in the eastern caribbean. we're watching it every step of the way. you can, too. you can head to any time you want. just not right now because i have to give you the seven-day forecast. 88 for a high tem this morning pushing inland this afternoon. your next seven days, 50% rain chance on thursday and then drops as we get, again, a hint of drier air in on friday so 20% the rain chance. however, end of the weekend, rain chances will double to around 40%. vanessa? >>vanessa: and right now we do have some westbound blockage and of course, some delays as you head through the area of park boulevard and 43rd. we have sky fox checking out that intersection in pinellas
6:16 am
you can see it's a full blockage. we have part of a crash scene. looks like one of the vehicles is taking up a large portion of the intersection so drivers are forced to either make a left turn or right turn there. once again, that will be westbound park boulevard at 43rd. definitely plan some extra time for those forced detours in the area. >>jennifer: protests take hold in another american city after police shoot and kill another this time in the san diego suburb. the man died a few hours ago. police say he was acting erratic. he said his family was mentally challenged. the department released a still image taken from a cell phone video of the incident. a man had two hands on an object, pointing it toward an officer. >>russell: a suspicious package forces the evacuation of the charlotte police headquarters discovered by an employee working in the mail room. a robot removed the package from the building.
6:17 am
a flashlight and light bulb. police investigating who sent that package. bomb scare comes a week after charlotte police officer shot and killed keith lamont scott. >>jennifer: a young girl's tearful plea stole the spotlight. >> we shouldn't have to protest because you're all treating us wrong. we do this because we need to and have rights. >>jennifer: the little girl is she was one of the dozens who packed into the city council chambers to vent their frustrations with police. they're calling on charlotte's mayor and police chief to resign. they say the city waited too long to release video of the shooting. >>russell: this morning we're learning more about the man at the center of the shooting, keith lamont scott. less than a year before the shooting, his wife filed a protective order. he threatened to kill his family with a gun. she asked to have the order
6:18 am
later saying he was no longer a threat. attorneys said the incident should have no bearing on this current case. >>jennifer: at 6:30, how a british spy's argument with his wife nearly put the d-day in jeopardy. >>russell: would you like to drink your morning coffee from a cone? yes, please.

6:32 am
that were previously done. so we're only expecting about a dozen or so families to get back the results today. in the meantime, all the other people that have the scheduled test are going to have to wait and wonder to see if their water is safe to drink. back to you guys. >>russell: thank you. talk to you again later. >>jennifer: it's been nearly 50 years since man first landed on the moon. now our sights are set higher. >>russell: elon musk envisions hundreds of passengers flying to walter will tell us how he's going to get us there. >>walter: musk, who also runs tesla, has been called a real life version of ironman. his dreams often become reality. his latest, send people to mars. at a conference in mexico, musk unveiled a four minute video that details his plan to colonize the red planet. it involves the most powerful

6:34 am
he believes it will take about a million people to properly colonize mars. it will take 40 to 100 years to get that population at that level. >>jennifer: one-way ticket. a few people i would like to send on that flight. time now is 6:34. scientists say the first baby has been born from a new technique that combines d.n.a. from three people. the goal is to prevent the child from inheriting a fatal genetic disease from the mother. it's a defect that typically kills a of birth. the baby boy was born five months ago. the technique is not approved in the u.s. >>russell: the saying goes, happy wife, happy life and now science backs that up. >>jennifer: previous studies found feeling happy and satisfied is closely linked to good physical health. new study suggests your physical health may also be linked to that of your spouse.
6:35 am
unhappy partner had more physical impairments and got less exercise. they say a happy spouse encourages healthy behavior. >>russell: here's another reminder to keep your spouse happy. love this story. we're learning a lover's quarrel actually threatened to derail the plans for d-day. a british spy, code named agent garbo, had convinced the nazis that the allied invasion would not take place to protect his identity, he and his wife were confined to their house in london. according to newly unsealed documents, the agent's wife struggled to deal with the pressure of the double life and she threatened to go public unless she was allowed to visit her mother in spain. the mission was too important so the british spy agency convinced her that her outburst led to the
6:36 am
she was even taken to visit him in a mock detention camp. all of it worked. she was eventually convinced to support her husband's undercover work and then, as you know, d-day was a success paving the way for the allied victory in europe. can't wait for the history channel documentary on this one. right? cool. >>jennifer: wives have the power, wow. dave has a look at the forecast. >>russell: and we'll explain why googling brad pitt could ruin your computer. that's next. ?? cozy up this fall with dunkin's coffee and espresso flavors. sip salty and sweet with our new salted caramel macchiato or drink in the season with the classic taste of pumpkin.

6:38 am
i think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell you. i would bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody
6:39 am
and you can tell them to go [bleep] themselves. get him out of here! get him out of here! get the hell out of here! priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>dave: to the radar we go and while we get this onshore wind flow, especially when you have water temperatures in the upper 80s, you'll get popup showers and up in citrus county is a
6:40 am
you get the shower that develops along the coast and starts to fall apart, really before it even reaches highway 19. we have a couple of sprinkles near crystal river southward and down to homosassa. notice some heavier showers offshore. once we get to like 10:00, 11:00, noon time today and the atmosphere on land starts to destabilize, you'll get more of these popup showers and then they'll start that push inland. again, they'll sta their way into polk county and highlands county this afternoon. it's not a bad morning. i mean, yes, we're in the upper 70s and it's muggy tampa to st. petersburg but i have sun city center at 69 degrees this morning. i have bushnell, dade city, wesley chapel, lower 70s so nice stuff. closer to the coast, it is warm and muggy but the further inlan. ask our friends in beautiful
6:41 am
we're at 68 lovely degrees in polk county. ahead of the front, we squeeze in the moisture and that's why today, 40% rain chance. tomorrow 50% rain chance. now, this front is going to move into central florida but that's as far as it's going and then it's going to wash out. so the real lovely, lovely fall-like drier air will start to the north of us. we'll get a little hint of it. i mean, you'll feel it come saturday morning. you say it feels but then by sunday afternoon, guess what? the humidity is right back into the forecast. reconnaissance aircraft is on their way to this disturbance. now, notably in the last hour or so, barbados reported a westerly wind and that's what this system was lacking yesterday. so once this plane gets out there in the next couple of hours, it will be interesting to see if they find that west wind because if they do, i think
6:42 am
matthew right here. now, the current thinking in the short-term has not changed. keeping it moving into the eastern caribbean where then eventually it's going to be picked up by a trough and carried northward. the only problem are two things in the models right now. one, each model differs at how far west it goes before it turns north which obviously makes a big difference when you're dealing with the southeast coast of the u.s. but also the timing of it. way up here next friday and the european down to the bahamas next friday. that's a big difference. so the timing of this has to be figured out as is that northern turn. right now, knock on wood, you don't see really much bringing it into the gulf. you see just turning it north and eventually heading up the east coast of our country. so still plenty of time to watch
6:43 am
got to get that low level center before they ca name this and it probably will happen today. so 88 degrees for a high temperature for us. scattered storms moving inland this afternoon. tonight variable clouds, muggy, low 75 and then tomorrow we're back to 87, more scattered storms moving and look out for the popup storms along the coastline. i'm thinking one of those days where boating will be decent late, late in the day as everything will be pushed to the east coast by that point. water temperatures still running 87 next seven days, i'll show you rain chances 50% tomorrow. that brief stint of drier air friday into saturday and then rain chances return for sunday. >>vanessa: thank you. just a reminder drivers travelling through pinellas park, we have a crash still working. lane blockage westbound direction. this is park boulevard near 43rd and still dealing with the full blockage in that westbound direction. looks like they have quite a bit of fluid on the roadway, too. i'm not sure if that's gasoline
6:44 am
the cleanup is underway. in the meantime, traffic being diverted. plan extra time or avoid the area if you can. veterans expressway, we're still pretty much up to speed. average speed in the southbound direction near gunn highway around 54 miles an hour. it shuld take 12 minutes between the top and the bottom of the veterans. we'll get to charley belcher right now. happy wednesday to you. >>charley: good day to you, vanessa. happy wednesday to you. you know, wednesday mornings are always when we rally winner of the week and this was a bitter battle. this one really was a tough one. wire grass ranch versus tampa catholic high school and i know it's a good rivalry when the pep rally voting is happening when i get emails from both schools accusing the other one of maybe -- tampering. not from the schools but very enthusiastic people from the school.
6:45 am
at 10:00 p.m. last night, it was tampa catholic high school that won. tampa catholic won the "good day" pep rally so we'll be there this friday for the fox 13 "good day" pep rally. just don't say my fox >>vanessa: like you just said. >>charley: yeah. don't say that. that doesn't exist anymore. don't do as i do. do what i say. we'll have a good time. va renaissance woman. you do it all. you knit, play the piano, violin, cook. do you dance? >>vanessa: i don't know. i like to dance. i took ballet for a few years when i was in -- >>charley: of course you did. >>vanessa: elementary school. everyone takes ballet. >>charley: i did not take ballet in elementary school. >>vanessa: so that wasn't you in my class. russell did.

tap. i had to let that register for a minute. i took recreational dance in college and i consider myself a little toe tapper. i can move on the dance floor. this morning is dedicated to dance. we're at this really cool, fairly new dance studio. it's called the hip room and we're in downtown tampa. i love the old building. the old bricks and the windows out here. beautiful space. i'm going to tell you about the hip room dance studio and the reason we're here is because this tradition of charitable events known as dancing with the stars, the local edition. not that show on tv which i think has probably been cancelled by now. the charity event dancing with the stars every year, it's a big deal. it raises a bunch of money for a great cause. we'll tell you about the charities involved, the local celebrities dancing this year. i see a firefighter over there. i know he's one of the
6:47 am
