5:16 pm
coast. today maybe a sprinkle here, maybe a sprinkle there, maybe one up in citrus county, and that's it. we'll stay rain-free tonight, and temperatures now are still in the mid to upper 80s. we watch with interest what's happening in the southeast bahamas. it looks to me as though either a subtropical or tropical storm will develop. it will be named otto. the good news is -- a couple things good about it. it's not heading this way, and eventually as it moves down cooler and drier weather our way. that's going to happen this weekend. as every day goes by, my confidence in a cold front is certainly getting higher, and that's good. the models show low pressure spinning east of us, and then going up the east coast is a big rainmaker to new england. we stay on the backside, so by saturday the winds should rush
5:17 pm
back here will build in. it will give us a lot of sunshine. in fact, the weekend right now simply looks fantastic. lots of sunshine, low humidity, 50s and 60s for lows and mostly in the 70s for daytime highs. you can't beat that. mild, dry evening tonight as low pressure spinning east of the state. here comes the cold front moving very, very slowly our way. it will pass by, i think, late friday maybe a couple of showers and then we go from orange and yellow to green and blue, which are good colors. they're cooler temperatures for sure. here's the weekend cooldown. temperatures wednesday back in the 70s and 80s for us, and then by friday at 2:00 we're still in the low to mid-80s. then by saturday at 8:00 a.m., we drop into the low to mid-60s, and then we look ahead another day to sunday. by 8:00 a.m. more upper 50s and
5:18 pm
afternoon, look at this. high temperatures mostly in the mid-70s, so take your pick. today the high about 88, low temperature about 71 this morning. by saturday we do a 79 and a 62. that's a nice transition pretty much from summer to fall over the weekend. it's another day today with record-heat across the entire east coast going back to texas, but eventually this big trough, which brought the will start dipping to the south, and you know, if you want to get cooler weather, you have to see this. you have to see a big u in the jet stream. that's a trough. it brings down cool air from the northwest. they typically hang around for a couple of days. that will happen this time, and then by monday and tuesday, we slowly start the warm-up. so certainly something for a will the on of us looking forward to and a good tim to crank up the fire pit this weekend. mostly clear tonight down to 70.
5:19 pm
daytime highs back in the upper 80s and on sunday -- on thursday more sunshine and warm afternoon and 87. so we have sunday on the brain. northeast winds about 10 knots east and light chop on the bay. next tide is a low tide at 9:46. seven-day forecast is a good one. a cold front goes by on friday, and pretty good numbers for the weekend. 70s for highs and 50s and 60s for lows. back to you. >> i sure do. thank you. the parents of a today to take him off life support. he was viciously beaten last weekend in an upscale neighborhood near orlando. >> we show you what investigators are learning about this mysterious murder. >> this is the 15-year-old that died after his family made the heart-breaking decision to take him off life support. >> roger was a good kid. winter park high school student, loving family. certainly did not deserve this
