6:16 am
just another nice day. the difference is, you do see some mid level moisture so that may be enough to produce a few clouds but we're not going to deal with any rain. the clouds, northeast wind and it all equals another beautiful day. high pressure dominates weather. by wednesday, you see this front to the north? it's going to try to what we call back door us, coming in from the northeast, moving to the southwest. that may provide -- don't get all but that's really about it. so there's no significant rain in the next seven days. and you see where it says a bit more humid? really, it's not going to be all that big of a deal. this next seven days is going to be wonderful, wonderful weather. 81 degrees for a high temperature today. sunrise at 7:36. we're going to go 62 in tampa tonight. but if you're east, if you're north, you're easily going to be

6:18 am
normal. those are ideal travel times. nine minutes to get from 75 to downtown. >>laura: a horrific crash yesterday morning in california left 13 people dead and dozens injured. a tour bus collided with a semi truck and the impact was so powerful, the trailer entered about 15 feet into the bus. survivors told authorities most of the people aboard the bus were asleep at the time. were unrestrained causing them to be thrown throughout the vehicle. listen. >> when you usually see someone involved in a high speed motor vehicle crash, the thing you see are big time broken bones. this was not one of the circumstances that we were faced with. seemed as though most of the victims were unrestrained and therefore, were flown through the air and ended up sustaining facial trauma. >>laura: authorities are hoping they can find a data recorder in

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. in the aftermath of matt's death, 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. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action

6:41 am
the thing is, i don't think it's going to be a huge deal at all over the next, you know, let's say several days as these dew point numbers. watch these forecast dew points. eventually making their way back up into the lower 60s. that's not that humid, though. that's just kind of, you know -- a little bit above where we are and kind of close to normal. high temperature dominating weather other than just a few clouds here and i don't think anything is going to be that much of a bother this week weatherwise. just a temperature forecast here and there as highs make their way eventually into the lower 80s. now, our forecast for today brings us up to about 81 degrees for a high temperature. really, i'm going to call it sensational. clear and cool tonight with a low of 62. mostly sunny, seasonable tomorrow with a high temperature around 83 degrees. your marine forecast, northeast
