7:09 am
a gum ball machine? this machine is worth $800. it's pretty crazy story. a man walks in, tells employees he's there to service the machine and picks it up and walks away with it. employees watched him, dumb founded. >>russell: you're never too old to find love, either. listen to this. 95-year-old carla married yesterday. friends, family there to see it happen. couple met less than a year ago. they say it was love at first sight. good for them. good for them. >>laura: do you know what? >>russell: that's great. >>laura: everybody deserves to be with somebody. >>russell: look at that happiness. that's just joy right there. nice.
7:10 am
ahead, your chances of getting the flu. check your birth certificate. we'll explain coming up. >>russell: don't let the bed bugs bite. it may be easier said than done. a rare breed is coming back to florida. >>dave: you have to show a closeup of it? okay. 60 degrees. yeah. we're at 60 degrees. that's in the city. north-northeast winds around five miles an hour so you can obviously expect that you're away from the influence of the gulf of the bay and it's cooler. i've got mid to upper 50s inland. 40s to the north. heads up, brooksville. jacket weather for you folks this morning but it should be a beautiful afternoon.
7:11 am
7:12 am
7:13 am
>>dave: what a brilliant start to the day. sun just came up over lake mirror, a little less than half an hour ago and it's just
7:14 am
jackets because it's a lot cooler than it was yesterday which i'll show you in a second. usf marine science camera, equally as beautiful. we do have, and you can see them in this picture here, a few very thin, high clouds. no biggie. not going to stop from having an absolutely ly gorgeous day. bayshore camera, equally as beautiful. we have 40s. these blue shaded areas, really om up to the panhandle, these are all 40s this morning. ocala is at 45. so 46 in inverness. 47 in prooksville. then a little warmer especially toward the influence of the gulf. st. petersburg at 65. tampa at 60 and inland locations in the mid to upper 50s. one of the reasons for that is the tremendous amount of dry air that kind of settled in
7:15 am
get light winds like we have now with this kind of dry air, you get something called radiational cooling and that's all that warmth from yesterday skips all the way to the atmosphere. temperatures drop quickly. on the other side of the coin, though, with the sun coming up, we're going to warm things up very quickly as well so absolutely one of those days where you walk out the door, need the sweater or light jacket. pi noon time, shed it, not going to need high pressure dominating weather and looks to do so really for three days which is perfect. you've got veterans day today, holiday, then you've got the weekend. after the weekend, we're looking for some clouds and showers to maybe settle in early next week but until then, smooth sailing. it's going to be a little cool in the mornings, though. lovely temperatures this
7:16 am
then for tomorrow, temperatures to 80 degrees with the sunshine and dry air continuing through the weekend. look for seven days and even if we were to get showers monday, tuesday, which to be honest with you we could use at this point at the month, it's not a big deal. 76 for highs on monday, tuesday and thursday. >>vanessa: thank you. polk county we're watching a vehicle fire along westbound i-4. it is causing some lane blockage and it's in the general are up. it appears this is under control. we don't know about injuries so we'll let you know if we get an update on that. in the mean time, use caution as you head westbound i-4. otherwise, you can see actually pretty clear majors right now. 275 south still in the green heading into the interchange as is westbound i-4 travelling through eastern hillsborough county. no big complaints for northbound drivers on 75, either. don't forget out of pinellas, the delays are getting worse
7:17 am
off. i keep trying to explain to folks, the sensors are off in pinellas as far as the location of them but this is the speed marker. we have pulled up near belleair where we have a crash still dailying with an inside lane closed so now delays, i would say you probably want to start to consider to avoid this area and we'll come back with another update in a couple of minutes. >>laura: your risk of contracting certain types of the flu could depend on the year you were born. this is a little convoluted so when you're exposed to the flu for the first time at a young age, our bodies remember an important immune response to deploy and that works as an immunity to that strain for the rest of your life. depending on the year you were born and the flu strain that was dominant, your body may already know how to fight it off and keep you healthy. >>russell: that's fascinating. got it.
7:18 am
years ago. the last time the tropical bed bug was found in florida was back in the 40s. now, these bugs were found at a brevard county home. sorry about this. university of florida scientists confirmed it's the tropical species while both types of bed bugs feed on humans in the same way, what makes tropical bed bugs different is how quickly they can multiply. scientists say if you find any bed bugs in your home, call in the you can also send bed bugs to the university of florida to be identified. >>laura: thanking our veterans. places to go for free stuff today. >>russell: and then jennifer epstein has a great home town hero story this morning. >>jennifer: it's not easy being a kid and it's tougher when you're bullied.

if you haven't had a chance to be outside and it's beautiful. looking down kennedy, here is downtown, downtown tampa, 60 degrees with a north-northeast wind. also as we turn the camera around and you see -- look at the tremendous visibility. dry air, really many levels of the atmosphere and it's going to be just as pretty as it was yesterday and even though we have a coolish start, look at the beach where it's 59 the air temperature is 59. i think that's the first time i've seen that so far this fall out at clearwater beach. east-northeast winds at five miles an how were but it is. it's stunning. it really is. look at the 40s and oh, my goodness, tallahassee, what are you doing? 38 degrees in tallahassee this morning. 40 in panama city. 44 in jacksonville. brooksville at 47 so for a lot
7:49 am
very early this morning. then it will get warmer quickly, too, because of all the drier air in place. four to nine degrees colder than yesterday at this time, but it's just lovely out there, especially when you've got drier air sitting in place like this. drier, warms up quickly. that's going to take a lot of 40s to the north and bring them to the 70s this afternoon. tampa is looking to be around 78 degrees with that gorgeous sunshine. tonight if you're going out, and just before the sun goes down, grab your jacket because once it does, then it's going to quickly cool off again and wake up tomorrow morning with most of us in the 50s and the 40s well to the north. then sunshine, dry air for your saturday. it should be a beautiful day with high temperature around 80 degrees. i do have a light shop for boaters today, tomorrow, moderate chop on sunday and next high tide at 11:32 this morning.
