6:15 am
temperatures. here is one area. nicole long gone. it did some damage in bermuda. good for the folks. just a very hardy island. now you're looking at this disturbance which runs a moderate chance, a 40% chance for development over the course of the next five days. well to the east. in fact, it's down over the turks and caicos and even if it does develop, i want you to see what the computer models here is the european moldel. you can see the disturbed weather down here as it starts to develop and then starts to move toward the north. at the same time, later this week, we're going to be getting a cold front. here is your cold front by friday, moving into the southeast and as it moves into the southeast, if this does develop into anything at all, you can see it's going to start to push it more toward the north
6:16 am
we're not overly concerned because you have this front that's going to slide and push that eventually out to sea. then this is just a big area of high pressure come sunday night, dominating our weather. we're looking at a decent cold front here and it's going to be in the friday, saturday time frame. when you talk about a front that's five days away, we have to fine tune the timing of that as we get closer to the weekend. we have some clouds and showers on saturday. can we push it all to friday? that can tell you we are looking at much drier air for the second half of the upcoming weekend. look forward to that. 87 for a high temperature today. the pesky, isolated, inland shower or two. clear and mild tonight with a low temperature of 70 degrees. and then partly cloudy and warm tomorrow with your high around 87. still have a moderate chop. it's the east to northeast wind, can't get rid of it. maybe five knots picking up to

our next high tide near the st. pete pier is at 4:17 this afternoon. it's not until later this afternoon. here's your next seven. you do see the cooler air coming in on the weekend. as we get closer, we'll fine tune the rain chances so maybe we squeegee a shower out saturday morning and that will be it. we'll wait. notice sunday, low near 62. that's nice, vanessa. >>vanessa: i cannot wait for that. all right. thanks, dave. it's 6:17 and visibly it is picking up a little bit as more cars heading wherever they're going this morning, maybe to work. 275 at roosevelt is where this live look is right here. travel times look good right there. hillsborough county, looks like northbound 275 also looking good. i-4 to 75 taking only 15 minutes. five minutes the drive westbound i-4 driveers heading from mlk to the interchange. eight minutes heading north.

movie. he has a need for speed. everything from 1985 legend to the new "mission impossible." >>laura: a legend. i haven't thought about that in awhile. >>vanessa: entire clip is more than 18 minutes long. 18 minutes of running would be interesting to see how our movie stars stack up. >>russell: you know, he's no kid. when he does run, in like the mission impossible movies, he's good. >>va i'm sorry. >>vanessa: no. no. i'm right there with you. now this one. i'm like mesmerized. this is officer paul. he works for the south bend school force and he works the crosswalk armed with light sabres. he says folks have started to take notice. as folks slow down to watch, he said it makes for a nice traffic flow. on top of directing traffic, he also performs light shows for

him. that's when they shot him. >> when somebody says they're going to have a suicide by cop, let me tell you, those numbers are rising. we're seeing it more and more. those criminals and realize, when we come, we come to make peace. but if you cause us to have to, we will take the actions necessary because we will make sure that our people go home alive and we'll make sure every one of our citizen county is safe. >>reporter: we're getting more information like the names of the people involved, the man who unfortunately is dead at this point, the pregnant girlfriend, that kind of thing. usually in a situation like this, the cop or the cops or deputies in this case are usually put on administrative leave after shooting someone. that presumably is what will happen back here. terrible situation, unfortunate.
6:33 am
an intense rescue on florida's east coast. a car drove over an bankment and burst into flames. they found people hand in hand trying to lift the drive to her safety. the driver was in shock or panic and had to be physically restrained while being pulled from the car which added a whole other element to the rescue but the officers and good samaritans were able to get him out. he's just got minor injuries. >>la mosul after two years of isis control. >>russell: the push will be the biggest military action in iraq since american troops left in 2011. here is more. >> the operation to liberate mosul has begun. iraq's prime minister announcing his forces are now engaged fighting isis to reclaim iraq's second largest city. it's the last major city still under isis control.

6:39 am
>>dave: 6:39 and 71 degrees outside. you know, these dew points have been sitting in the upper 60s for a week and a half now, so again, not too humid, not too dry. we're just kind of in the middle. that's why we call humidity. north-northeast winds at seven miles an hour and there's a 66 in ocala. but you go to the east coast and oh, boy. it's 81 in stewart and 80 in west palm with that onshore wind flow continuing. now, yes, saturday morning, a little surprise, right? you had little showers. thankfully it did clear out enough and it came back late in the day yesterday. we'll see a few of the tiny move across the state showers. north to northeast winds
6:40 am
sitting on top of us. these are very low top showers so they're not a big deal. they're just a quick shower and then they're gone. notice the drier air sitting on top of us now. this is what was responsible for some weekend rain we had. just a little bit of extra lift in the atmosphere. but look at all this moisture sitting out here. there's actually an area of disturbed weather, right? we just got rid of matthew and nicole and this has a for development over the next several days. and as i say that, though, i don't think -- at least at this point -- it's going to be a huge concern to the lower 48 because watch. i'll show you why with the future cast. next couple of days, just a couple of tiny showers streaming across the state. you can start to see some potential development down here in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. at the same time, we're also going to get a cold front
6:41 am
that does, it's going to pick up this moisture, carry it to the north and then eventually to the northeast. so while there is that potential for development, it should stay a decent distance away from our state and that front comes in over the weekend, and that front will finally, finally dry us out. now, when i show you the seven-day forecast in a minute or so, i can tell you that we're going to have to tweak it a little bit as we get closer to the weekend but the way it sets saturday afternoon, drier air settles in and then sunday looks to be a nice day. partly cloudy, very warm again today, isolated inland shower like we've seen the past several afternoons. sunrise later and later. 7:32. we're almost there. we're almost turning the clocks back. just a few weeks away, right? highs 87. tonight clear, mild, low 70 degrees and tomorrow back to 87 degrees and partly cloudy skies.
6:42 am
northeast winds at five to 15 knots, still settling in with the moderate chop and a couple of hours way from a low tide which is at 9:36. so the way it sets up, showers and then rain saturday morning. possible. but again, we'll tweak this as we get closer and the front becomes more apparent how it's going to work through. sunday, notice that's tampa. 62. that means east and north, you're going to settle back into the upper 50s come sunday morning. there it is, something to look forward changing things up. >>vanessa: did you say we're a couple of weeks away from setting the clocks back? >>dave: we're a few. >>vanessa: that's like a holiday for us. we get the extra hour, right? >>russell: did you hear this? >>vanessa: that's good times for the morning show. all right. thank you. 6:42 right now and looks like we do have some trouble brewing on the roadways. pasco county drivers, consider maybe taking collier parkway
6:43 am
boulevard southbound. we do have some eastbound delays along 54 so make sure planning extra time there, but as i mentioned, it's really jammed up heading south on land o lakes boulevard. like i said before, collier parkway could be better for you. we'll keep you posted on the delays we see out there. meantime, use caution here. traffic light medical function. apparently the lights are not out but they are out of the normal sequence so that traffic pattern might lk make sure you're paying attention. >>laura: thank you. we're going to get over to walter allen right now. >>russell: he's doing the charley belcher shift this week. good morning. for a few days, anyway. i should say a few days. >>walter: how was the weekend? >>laura: good. what about you? >>walter: it was good. i do want to share this. i know charley sometimes takes his mondays out to share some
6:44 am
weekend. i want to share a really great event that i was a part of, lucky to be a part of on sunday. harley davidson. you don't typically find me at the tampa harley davidson dealership. it was called all for kids and it really was. we had them on friday, bikers against child abuse and the guardian ad litem and they partnered together for all for kids. it was all these different organizations that really help out in the foster care system here in hillsbo and i want to say there were about 27,000, 30,000 kids in the foster care program. one of the highest numbers in the state of florida so pouring a lot of resources into helping out with that problem. so 3500 kids are in the foster program. there are about 25 different organizations that came that really showed off, you know, the different things that they offer, whether it be, you know, getting people licensed to be foster parents or making sure
6:45 am
and so it really was a very fantastic event. i don't know if we're showing the picture, but even natalie, she's several months pregnant and she's out there and we were aving a good time. it is weird becaus you have the big bad biker guys, right? and they have the harley davidson and the leather and they're bad to the bone and then squirt gun fights with the kids and they're running around and i don't know who was having more fun. i don't know if the biker guys were having more fun or if the >>laura: you showed the picture on friday of the hard looking guys getting their nails painted pink by the girls in the program. it was cute. >>russell: that's neat. >>walter: their hearts are so big and so it really was an honor to be part of that event this weekend. so right now this morning, i'm at low cal market. we're going to go to eats that you can enjoy throughout the day.

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.
