they had three different storm systems, guys, bring them wind and rain and round three is today. that's that low you see spinning west of seattle this morning. this one is not as strong, but it's still bringing a lot of rain to the area. it's piling up along the coastline. seattle and portland dealing with showers and in the higher terrain a little bit of winter weather. see that hint of blue there. as this pushes east, it will be a wet day for them and an improvement into the early part of the week. improvements morning, it's cloudy in spots. we have stratocumulus that's dry. we're at 75 in st. petersburg from johns hopkins all children's hospital cam. as we look towards tampa there's a breezy wind at 16 miles per hour. it's been breezy for a week near the coast. riverview is looking good. some scattered clouds and 73 degrees. to our east, big storms and west has big storms as well. i've been watching them all morning. they're not coming our way but
out. that's the case on the east coast towards cape canaveral or melbourne. we have two pockets of storms. most of this won't make into the area. we're left with the 70s this morning and higher dew points as well. 75 in st. pete, 72 in west chase, and we're at 72 in dade city. inverness, your first time this morning shy of 70, which is where we should all be this time of year. shy of 70 degrees. mid-70s in at 73 and frostproof at 73. we're back in the dark green with dew points and they're near 70. that's close to a summer-like value and that's why with the east winds we up the rain chance to 40% west of tampa this afternoon. there's that breeze especially in pinellas, 13 to 16 miles per hour. we have high pressure to the north that fwlieds in over the next few days. today is the highest of the week
3:00 p.m. beyond that, showers do push westward, and as they pile up on the west coast, some may locally be a bit heavier today and possibly a thunderstorm in the mix. we didn't see that yesterday. today here comes the clouds filling in. spotty showers and here's 4:00, 5:00 and you notice a couple of heavier downpours, but watch into the evening by 8:00 we're basically done. here comes the drier air. so monday and tuesday we'll dealing with more sunshine and possibly a sprinkle. that's even lower rain chances on tuesday. that's when our cold front moves on in. sometime next weekend a whole lot different than the 86 for today. a passing shower or storm this afternoon. after about 8:00 most of our spotty showers are done, mild overnight and 70 for the low and 87. so more heat with fewer showers, just a sprinkle or two for monday. if you boat, keep in mind it's a bit breezy.
huge changes next weekend, so the cold front slips in sometime early saturday and we're out of the 80s for highs. i wouldn't be surprised if we saw 50s for lows sunday morning, guys, next sunday. >> alcides: thank you. in world news this mort reports of more on gregs against american soldiers in the middle east. >> iran nan-backed rebels in yemen shot missiles at u.s. navy ships for the third time this week. there's confusion what happened. officially a u.s. defense official says multiple missiles were fired at three ships patrolling international waters. the pentagon said the vessels detected possible inbound missile threats. officials say the american warships are safe and an investigation is now under way. >> alcides: two americans held captive by yemen rebels are free following a brokered deal. they were flown to neighboring oman after the release. it's not known why they were held.
a very complicated diplomatic arrangement. >> anjuli: fresh talks underway in lon ton this morning to find a new way to end the violence in syria. at a meeting john kerry said ideas were thrown about but no agreement was reached on a concrete action. syria's ceasefire brokered by the u.s. and russia collapsed last month. u.s. government agencies are reporting a failed missile launch out of north korea. the u.s. strategic command said near the city in the northern part of that country. the latest attempt is the most recent in a series of missile launches carried out by north korea. the u.s. government says the missile did not pose a threat to north america. still to come, we all want to be happy and healthy, too. >> anjuli: that's right. part of that is getting the proper vitamins and minerals your body needs. we talk to a local doctor about

in our last hour.. we discussed the 30 >> alcides: in the last hour we discussed a $30 billion vitamin and supplement industry. we have vitamins for all sorts of necessary and who regulates them? it turns out, actually nobody. here is our doctor from johns hopkins children's hospital. my kids take vitamins all the time, especially the flintstone gummies we talked about. they really don't need that? >> right. most children can get all the minerals and vitamins they neat from a indict yet and he'ding those. one of the problems awe lewded
don't test them like the prescription drugs you take. they will take complained for but they don't require them to be tests and some don't contain all the ingredients they say they do when tested. >> alcides: i'm sorry. do we need to take them? do our kids need to take them, then? >> they're not good dat to support taking multivitamins on a daily basis, and many do. between 2007 and 2012, there were 6,000 for serious medical complications associated with supplement use and vitamin use. if you're going to give your children multivitamins, be careful where they come from and what brands you use. >> talk about this new study out of johns hopkins in week. >> our colleagues are doing a story on heart health. of the 2700 participants they looked at the individuals taking the most calcium supple supplementation.
calcium diet, green leafy vegetables, and taking calcium from dairy and yogurt and cheese was good and heart-protected. those that took calcium implementation had an increased risk of atherosclerosis or plaque in the heart. although it doesn't say to stop taking it, talk to your doctor about that. it does point for the idea we should eat vitamins and minerals rather than taking them as pills. >> try not itself and complement it in your diet? >> exactly. so that's always the best way. if you can eat foods high in calcium, it can be heart-protective. if you take pills for any of these reasons and using that to ai had voluntary eating a good diet, that's probably not a good thing. >> that goes for our children as well? >> absolutely. children should eat a variety of foods. we fight kids to eat vinyling tables. looking for those opportunities thinking it's okay, i give them
in vitamins and minerals. >> alcides: my kid hates drinking molg, so we give him cheese sticks and stuff like that. that's what you're talking about? >> if your child won't drink milk, look for calcium in some way. yogurt and milk with cereal. >> alcides: whaef you have to do. i love the idea, you and save the money on vitamins and supplements at the same time. >> absolutely. pthis weekend. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> anjuli: still to come on "good day," our couponing expert is standing by with a great deal of the week for you and we talk to fox's brett bear on the latest on the campaign trail. why one man is told he can't fly the stars and stripes. we have that and much more when we come back. >> lindsay: at 8:25 waking up to mid and high clouds but no rain this morning. that changes this afternoon,

bay, but how about a little sun mixing through the clouds. 75 with the east-northeast wind at 16 miles per hour. we're all above average, and humidity values just as high as yesterday at this time. it's 73 in lakeland, 70 in brooksville, 75 in tampa, st. pete, and sarasota. check out the east coast. west palm beach is 81 degrees. they're ready for a break in the humidity. by the way, we see one next weekend, and today a couple of changes. satellite and radar show extra clouds from some storms actually 74 miles to our west that aren't heading in our direction. i'm monitoring a few thunderstorms on the east coast that may give way to an isolated shower in eastern polk county over the next hour or two. i think really it's bin lunchtime bringing in heating and late day upping the rain chance west of tampa to 40%.
today, but how about drier air monday and tuesday. that means more upper 80s because of fewer showers. >> anjuli: car lovers in lakeland have one last chance to take a drive down memory lane. >> alcides: today is the last day of the lake mirror classic auto festival. nearly 500 cars lined up the streets on saturday waxed and shined and looking as good as the day it rolled off the lot. you can spot just about any the future" era delorean. the car's owner says this classic wheels is special to him because as a child he admired one exactly like it. >> it's a really good visit down memory lane, and just a time when you were young for people that are my age or our age. just lots and lots of fun to see the cars and be around them and talk to the people that have
festival's final event. it just kicked off a minute and 53 seconds ago. >> the world fame chihuly glass collection is open to the public. it features magnificent, intricate pieces of blown glass art incredible to see. it was closed so they could move to a new location on central avenue in st. pete. admission to the chihuly collection is 19.95 that includes a glassblowing de million ons of gallons of pollution into the bear, they took an unusual approach to transparent sigh. they invited the public to take a tour and they looked saturday at the nest and northeast water treatment plant. while there they had an opportunity to ask top officials any questions they may have had. questions that officials were happy to answer as they try to fix the city's water treatment plants.
operate, but also what our infrastructure needs are so that the public can demand that these things get addressed. >> alcides: believe it or not, plenty of people showed up on the event. st. pete's mayor hopes to make the tours an annual event. a man is livid this morning after the apartment complex he lives in told him the american flag hanging on his in violation of the rental agreement. back in july he tied on the flag on his girlfriend's balcony in west palm beach and now management is warning her to remove the flag or face fines or eviction. >> my grandfather fought for the right to hang that flag up and so did my dad. my dad was in the military, too. for them to tell me that i can't hang a flag up that represents the country that we're living in is the craziest thing i could possibly think of. >> alcides: a 2005 statute
denying the tenant the right to display a u.s. flag. when a local reporter mentioned that law to management at the apartment complex, he was asked to leave. >> alcides: investigators in ft. myers interviewed hundreds of witnesses and reviewed a large number of photos and videos from last year's zombie con, but the crime remains unsolved. police believe someone fired into the crowd of about 20,000 people who are enjoying the festival in their own zombie costumes. several victims are still recovering. the ft. myers city council voted down the festival from their town after the incident. it was replaced by a zombie pub crawl that happened last night. >> anjuli: on the campaign trail now, political scandals continue to plague both presidential candidates, and with less than 30 days until election day, it speems the ball shells are not slowing down. here to talk all about it live from las vegas is fox's bret baier. good morpg to you.
>> let's start with donald trump. what do you make of his recent drug-testing comments? >> reporter: that was yesterday on the trail. he often says some pretty eye b brow-raising things. he thinks that his opponent, hillary clinton should take a drug test because she was in his words all hopped up at the beginning and fell off w that, as you can imagine, was taken not too well by others on the other side of the aisle. more importantly, donald trump is dealing with, obviously, these accusations of sexual assault, and another today that he is firmly denying. that all of this environment we'll talk about with governor mike pence from indiana, his vice presidential nominee. >> anjuli: now the gop
how do you think this will play into his numbers? >> reporter: well, it's interesting. there's a new poll out this morning, anjuli, that "washington post"/abc poll that has the rate at four points nationally. that's within the margin of error. that's exactly the same place that poll was before the conventions. so it's possible that this has kind of moved and then come back, if this poll is accurate. you have some republican leaders train, if you will. so i think a lot is going to be depending on this debate on wednesday and our very own chris wallace will be the moderator. >> anjuli: the democratic seed, hillary clinton this new wikileaks e-mail scandal shows her avoiding criticism of wall street. do you think this is more fuel for trump, and how will this play with bernie supporters? >> reporter: not well. bernie supporter, i think her
throughout the primary campaign. it's finally come out in the wikileaks e-mails and other things came out as well as well as a blockbuster story broken by steve hayes of the weekly standard about an fbi/state department quid pro quo to try to hold back some e-mails and change the classification. these are stories that are explosive. i'll talk with senator kaine about them this morning on "fox news sunday." >> sounds like a very busy show. thank you >> thanks. >> anjuli: you can see "fox news sunday" on fox 13 starting at 9:00 a.m. >> alcides: going to church is as easy as jumping in your car for one south tampa
this is mike's office. if he doesn't show up, he doesn't get paid. too
often marco rubio didn't show up and failed us when he did. i am patrick murphy. to get things done, you've got to show up. you've got to work together. whether it's protecting social security and women's health care or growing the economy, we've got to start solving problems instead of pointing fingers. i am patrick murphy and i approve this message
you may remember the days of the drive-in movies.one south tampa >> anjuli: you may remember the days of the drive-in movies. one south tampa church offers up a piece of nostalgia each and every sunday through the drive-in sermons. pull your car into the grass lot park and tune in the radio new beginning christian church's short wave signal and kick back. the church, which is located right on south manhattan avenue, is offering up their drive-in service since the early 1970s when a nearby drive-in movie theater shut down back then, they bought up the equipment and used it for drive-in sermons. each sunday packs in 80 to 90 vehicles congregating to take in the church service from the
>> at the drive-in there's a unique tradition. amens, they flashlights and for clapping they honk their horns. so, for example, if a person does a special music, you'll hear honks. that's them clapping their hands. >> anjuli: love that. new beginnings church offers that service every sunday at 8:30 a.m. so it's going strong right now. the pastor and choir are on boat-shaped outdoor pulpit. they administer communion and collect offering from the parking lot. >> alcides: brilliant. >> anjuli: isn't it great? i thought for sure it would be a new thing for the church. they've been doing it for 40 years now and counting. they said rain or shine, they're out there. people show up. >> alcides: i believe it. whatever is convenient. >> lindsay: let's look at the weather with lindsay. >> lindsay: we're at 75 degrees
as a federal prosecutor, i've spent my career prosecuting criminals and fighting for the rights of victims. i want to make the state attorney's office a model for criminal justice. i'll prioritize violent crime and be tough on murderers, gangs, and anyone who commits domestic abuse or sexual assault. by working with police to wear body cameras and using dna to put criminals behind bars, not innocent people. i'm andrew warren. as state attorney, i'll make our county safer for our families.
how do we measure greatness in america? the height of our skyscrapers? the size of our bank accounts? no. it's measured by what we do for our
children. the values we pass on. i've spent my life fighting for kids and families and it will be my mission to build a country where our children can rise as high as their dreams and hard work take them. that means good schools for every child in every zip code. not debt. and an economy where every young american can find a job that lets them start a family of their own. we face big challenges, but we can solve them the same way families do. working together. respecting one another. and never giving up. i want our success to be measured by theirs.
