6:09 am
political turn, not everyone wanted to stick around to hear that. instead, some audience members got up and left the show. you're looking at some file video of amy schumer. comedienne performed inside madison kwar garden tuesday night. schumer told the new york crowd, quote, dearest tampa, i'm sorry you didn't want me, a comedian who talked about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now. how could i think peaceful conversation with someone with different views? now, schumer reportedly continued and shared her perspective on trump supporters. she reportedly called supporters or those who would vote for the candidate, quote, rich, entitled white people and, kwaet, the very poor people. the comedienne referred to the presidential nominee as a monster. we reached to donald trump via
6:10 am
comedienne's open letter and right now we're still continuing to monitor the feed for updates. again, this does come just a few days after that performance here in tampa where schumer, on the stage, wearing a white skirt, a black shirt, she invited a member of the audience on to the stage. a tampa attorney who was also a self described donald trump supporter. while on the stage, we're told schumer actually asked the attendee why he was donald trump. attendee shared his perspective, returned to his seat and we're told schumer continued on with that topic and discussed the exchange. once the attendee returned to his seat. audience members had a mix of cheers and boos. some of those audience members left the show. they got up from their seat and did not return. we'll continue to follow throughout the morning and keep
6:11 am
response to the comments made in the letter. >>laura: thank you. >>russell: here's some evidence that many americans, especially young americans, are dissatisfied with their choices in this election. university of massachusetts polled millennials and found a quarter would rather have a giant meteor destroy the earth than see donald trump or hillary clinton in the white house. 26% say t lottery for president. between trump, obama and random lottery for president and a giant meteor, clinton faired the best. >>laura: and to this. a new poll says that marco rubio's race against patrick murphy is too close to call. in the past two weeks, murphy has cut rubio's lead in half. senator had a four point lead on
6:12 am
shows rubio leading by just 2%, in the margin of error. the poll numbers are dragging down other big names in the republican party. murphy faces a major hurdle as he closes in on rubio. his campaign is running out of cash and making matters worse, the democratic campaign stopped earlier this month, senate majority pac pulled millions of dollars from the planned ad support. >>russell: senator rubio will be in tampa this morning but not for a campaign stop. he's visiting a historic cigar maker that says the new regulations are hurting business. back in august, we've been talking about this a lot, food and drug administration gained the authority to regulate all tobacco products, including cigars. one of the new rules imposes fees and makes it harder for
6:13 am
now, senator rubio plans to discuss the issue when he visits the jc newman cigar company in tampa. on top of the new regulations, american cigar makers have new competition. last week the obama administration eased restrictions on cuban made goods, especially rum and cigars. they have removed the $100 limit on goods brought into the states, meaning most people will bring back a dozen cigars and several bottles of rum. >>laura: u.s. health divide the $1.1 billion to fight the zika virus. more than 44 million will go to repaying other emergency funds that the government was forced to borrow from. another $40 million will he can up and down primary health care services in puerto rico and other agencies. others will cover everything from mosquito control and
6:14 am
vaccine. >>russell: still ahead, what airports are doing to prevent people from walk i don't go to planes with those explosive phones. >>laura: and we have liftoff. the next crew of the international space station are on their way but they are not the only ones chilling out in orbit. why space is starting to get a little crowded. >>dave: never thought you'd say that, huh? 74 in clearwater, 75 in st. petersburg. mid to upper 60s our temperatures inland. it is day. sunshine to begin the day. a few clouds will mix in during the afternoon but in general, very similar to yesterday.
6:15 am
hand-dipped, with real milk is the only way to make a milkshake. you can't trust machines. now, how come? once i got a machine-made shake from some other place, and it clanked and clunked and spit out a glop into my glass. and do you know what it was made of? artificial turf? what?
6:16 am
powder! chowder. get half-price fall milkshakes between 2:00 and 5:00 during happy hour. only at steak 'n shake. elise: we couldn't believe it. that poor girl was raped by two football players and their friends. we were sure they would go to jail. so, when i heard state attorney mark ober decided to go easy on them, i was scared -- scared for my daughter. none of those young men served a day behind bars. ober said losing a baseball scholarship if mark ober can't protect our families,
6:17 am
>>dave: it is 6:17. how about this transition here? for today or actually for yesterday, we made it to 89 degrees. right? our low temperature was at 71. let's fast forward into saturday. look at the difference.
6:18 am
78. i know, we just keep teasing it. the front is on its way, on its way, slowly working its way here. 63 degrees in crystal river. 67 wesley chapel, 68 in brandon. low to mid 70s tampa, clearwater and st. petersburg. statewide, you have 60s across i-10 and upper 70s from vero to west palm. down three key west, you have a northeast to east wind up, keeping things in check as far as humidity goes so we haven't had the oppressive dew points any more, not with the wind direction we have and as soon as this front comes through, then we'll shift the winds to the northwest and then it's a different ballgame. watch this. this is what you're going to get excited about. forecast dew points. dew points measure the amount of surface moisture. the lower the number, the drier it is. once you get dew points back in
6:19 am
so here is where they are this morning, 6:00, mid to upper 60s. where they've been the past couple of weeks, we fast forward this. you get into thursday late in the day, friday morning here comes the cold front. by friday morning at 9:00, dew points are already back in the upper 50s in pensacola. they haven't changed, right? we're still in the mid 60s. watch the difference from friday morning into saturday morning. there you go. there's your cold front. dew points at 40s across i-10 and the mid 50s for the tampa area. it's not extremely dry. it's just one of those -- it's going to feel like just a fall-like day with the northwest breeze kind of helping things out a little bit. so first real decent front of the year because it looks like the drier air is going to stick around for a few days rather than the last front that came through and stuck around for a few hours. so there's your difference now as we finally get some drier air
6:20 am
they're bringing the front down to south florida which is good. mostly sunny and warm today with a high of 87 degrees. so every bit like it was yesterday. mostly clear, mild tonight with a low temp of 70 and then scattered clouds continued warm with a high temperature tomorrow around 87 degrees. boaters, i do have a moderate chop for you. it just seems like as long as we have the east wind up there around 10 to 15 knots, we'll get a light to moderate chop, especially during the afterno the water temperature, and that's the way high for this time. it's about 80 degrees. low tide 11. 246789 -- 11:24 this morning. upper 70s for highs on saturday and sunday. low temperatures back to the upper 50s for sunday and then sort of a gradual warming trend but still, even nice next week, vanessa. >>vanessa: no big complaints at all there. loving it. thanks, dave. and the roadways here, we're looking at a new crash reported with lane blockage. it's going to be out of pinellas
6:21 am
this is at 49th street north and 53rd avenue north. lanes are going to be blocked. i'm not seeing any big delays in the area. use some caution if you have to head that way. meantime, a look at the major roadways. good travel times here, pinellas bayway to i-4. 26 minutes if you're taking northbound 275. eight the time you should give yourself between branch forbes and 75 exit, taking i-4 west and then 75 so concerns in the morning and crashes along southbound 75. seven minutes now to get from state road 54 to bruce b downs boulevard. >>russell: here is one that is tailor made for jennifer epstein. coming up, how you can win a night in dracula's castle. >>laura: not bad at all. >>russell: that went out, didn't it? >>laura: uh-huh. the face of pure joy. a mom's reaction to her son who

6:29 am
i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart.

brooksville 63. ocala 63. lakeland 64. some upper 60s from frost proof down through the sebring area. a lot of sunshine today. same type of warmth as yesterday. i think we bring it back to the upper 80s. two more days of that before changes late friday and early into saturday. we're still on track for the cold front to come through in time for the weekend and we'll give you all the details in a few. >>vanessa: 6:32 news is a lot of our earlier incidents, crashes we're following, disabled vehicle all clear right now including that hit and run i mentioned in the last report. so with that we'll get to the majors. still no big changes here as i mentioned. we should be pretty clear at this point heading out the door and everything looking pretty ideal along 275, i-4 and 275. >>russell: a man set his own home on fire. this happened this morning.
6:33 am
scene. they say the man set the house on fire. officials believe that three other people were inside so while some firefighters fought the flames, others searched the house. no one was found. family members told officials that the man lives alone. took crews about an hour to -- about a half hour, rather, to put out the fire. one firefighter suffered a minor injury. >>laura: a man wearing a surgical mask robbed a convenience store yesterday on police say that the man was wearing a baseball cap and blue jeans. >>russell: florida streak of dodging hurricane $ over but the fun created to help private insurers pay out claims after a strong storm remains in shape financially. it will pay out less than $200 million for hurricane matthew.

mosquitos and the snakes. florida has it all. >>russell: every day we get a reminder that we share our state with mother nature. some are subtle, some not so much. >>laura: ken is live in tampa with the not so much. go ahead and take it, ken. >>reporter: you know, i don't think there's anything wrong with things personally. i have one as a when you name something, you like it. i'm comfortable with him. i can tell you this. if i was on 19 or anyplace else driving my truck along and a snake wiggled out from under the hood, that's just downright weird. a man was coming home from work on monday when this six footer seemed to pop out of nowhere. sound far fetched? this is the state of florida. sometimes it seems that the bizarre is commonplace.
6:35 am
wal-mart parking lot. he pulls out his cell phone and starts shooting so the people don't think he's hallucinating. this snake eventually disappeared but the question at this point is where did the darn thing go? >> next thing i know, i look up and it's gone and i pull forward and looked around on the ground, behind me, didn't see him anywhere so i'm assuming he's still in there somewhere. >>reporter: isn't that a he's going to be thinking, is he alone or with a snake? what do you do? you could probably take it on your mechanic and say a need a tuneup and snake exorcism or something like that. he thinks he spent the weekend in weeki wachee and he thinks the snake hitch hiked with him. he's assuming if the snake is still in there, he hitch hikes right back again.
6:36 am
>>russell: that's one of my fears. >>laura: it is one of your fears. >>russell: running over a snake. it somehow crawls under the side of the car and then there you are. you look in the rearview mirror and it's gone. jst always been one of my fears, kenny. >>reporter: we can do sensitivity training. i can bring my snake in. >>russell: it's a deal. >>reporter: jen did fine with him. >>reporter: fine. you win. mr. snuggles. >>laura: thank you, ken. >> engines firing up now, going up to flight speed and liftoff. >>russell: next crew of the international space station blasted off from kazakhstan this morning. the american and two russians. as you can see, it went off without a hitch. they'll dock friday morning and

before returning home in february. >>laura: astronauts will spend time on an orbiting lab. during the 30-"good day tampa bay," astronauts will spend time on the experimental space station. it's for future missions for china to go to the moon and mars. >>russell: this comes more than a attempt ended in failure. the disc shaped lander expected to touch down sometime after 10:00 a.m. space agency plans to begin streaming online around 9:00. mission's primary goal is to search for evidence of life on the red planet. second part of the mission to deliver a rover to the surface. that won't happen until 2020. >>laura: johnson & johnson and scott. find out why our governor will be at a big business in tampa this morning. >>russell: and this will wake up

6:40 am
6:41 am
>>dave: do you know what? i was outside yesterday afternoon and it was warm outside but it didn't seem all that bad. we had temperatures back to about 87, 88 degrees in many, many spots and we've got two more days of that before the changes start to settle. granted, tre people out there that love the heat and humidity. i'm not forgetting about you. the next couple of days, at least, you'll have a moderate humidity to enjoy before it gets dry. 63 in ocala. 71 tampa, 75 in st. petersburg. if you're anywhere near this 80-degree water temperature of tampa bay or the gulf, you're probably in the 70s this morning. if you're away from it, more than likely you're sitting in the 60s to start off today.
6:42 am
northeast to east winds warm up as they move across the state. our normal high temperature, russell, runs about 84 degrees for this time of year. so we're going to be above that again, really for the next two, three afternoons we'll continue to be above normal as far as temperatures go. but then things are going to start to change. back up here, taking shape. a pretty potent cold front and it's going to finally drop its way toward the south and the east and bring some relief, really to most of the now, just east of our state, you see all of this moisture just kind of hanging around, very disorganized. this could become something tropical. if anything, sub tropical as it drifts back toward the northwest. but the way and the timing of this cold front is such that as it drops to the southeast, it is literally going to pick up whatever this may be and bring it well east of our state and to the north of us.
6:43 am
new england but in general, now that the fronts are beginning to work their way south and east, they will tend to pick up the systems and carry them out to sea. but there's an 80% chance that this could develop into something over the course of the next several days so pull out the european model and you'll look and see, there it is right here this morning. watch as it starts to develop. here's your front back to the northwest. people always ask about a front stretches a thousand miles, okay? and it will always divert these storms. these storms don't override cold fronts. just doesn't happen. so as this moves to the north, it starts to feel the influence of that front and gets pulled to the north and the east. now, again, saturday and sunday they get a nice, big storm in
6:44 am
dealing with pleasant weather, really once this front comes through friday night, the drier air looks to stick around for a few days. remember, we did have a front come through a few weeks ago, and i think it got dry for a few hours and that was it. this time it will be a few days. okay? 87 degrees for a high temperature. mostly sunny and warm and a beautiful sunrise at 7:33 which we'll show to you. mostly clear, mild tonight with a low temperature of 70 degrees an continued warm tomorrow with a high temperature of around 87. boaters, a moderate chop for you with the wind out of the east at 15 knots. high tide is not until lake 6:00 this evening. so very early this morning. back to 78 for a high on saturday. 79, maybe 80 on sunday but notice those low temperatures even going to the beginning of next week and the very comfy sat
6:45 am
now. >>vanessa: well worth the wait. definitely. thanks, dave. and on the roadways, looks like we've got our normal congestion starting to build as we typically see this time of morning. 75 north of i-4 is where we're looking live right now. definitely starting to see some slowdowns, particularly in the southbound direction. look at our times on the veterans expressway. still clear. lots of green there. not too bad. no big complaints. you're dealing with 11 to 12 minutes either way you go and then here would suspect, red travel times for you, southbound 275. 18 minutes from bearss avenue to i-4. back to you guys. >>jennifer: thanks. today johnson & johnson will open its new regional headquarters in tampa. it's at the hidden river corporate center near east fletcher avenue. governor scott will be in town for the ribbon cutting. facility will house finance, human resources and information
6:46 am

6:47 am
