differences, we're still one people. >>laura: a lot of you went shopping after you ate yesterday. retailers predict $2 billion in sales but today will be even better. about $3 billion. alcides segui has a little advice to keep us all safe today while out there, right? >>reporter: that's right. if you're going shopping today, you know, make sure you are aware of your surroundings. and here's a perfect example for you. sarasota police tweeted out information to keep during the holiday season. it's not just today but the next 30 plus days. one of the main things is be aware of your surroundings. if you're walking to your car, put your cell phone down, in your purse, your pocket, know exactly what's going on in and around your car. the next thing you want to do is carry your purse or bag close to your body. your wallet may be inside a coat or maybe your wallet in your front pocket. that's a really good idea.
7:09 am
check the back seat and around the car before going in, tell a security guard or a store employee if you see an unattended bag. don't leave your package or valuables inside your car where it's visible. it's an easy target. those thieves will get into it, take your stuff before you know it so again, keep it maybe even in the trunk, make sure your doors are locked, of course. if you're going into the store, don't carry a large amount of cash. a lot of law enforcement officers are saying to cards. those gift cards are great because you're not carrying a lot of cash. also try buying with a credit card. you know, also be patient. you know, it's going to be pretty crazy today and the next couple of days. be very, very patient, head out to the store early, maybe even get out early and try to get it all done as quickly as possible. i don't know about you, laura and russell. we haven't even started our christmas shopping at home yet, so we may do it starting monday
7:10 am
to love. amazon.com, my favorite. back to you. >>laura: just you and the phone. you and the computer. >>reporter: that's it. >>laura: and the next big shopping day is cyber monday. retailers call that the best online shopping day of the year. $3.2 billion last year. average order was about $102. shoppers 35 to 55 spent the most money. and 52% of the orders on cyber monday last year were made from work. >>russell: i can't imagine. a very lucky man. he went from a near death experience to making wedding plans. >>laura: and wearing out her welcome. the fashion designer that is snubbing melania trump and why they're asking others to join the boycott. >>jim: a little patchy fog in a couple of areas this morning but now the sun is up. that will be burning off pretty quickly and we're looking at a beautiful start to the day. scattered clouds overhead.

>>jim: we've seen a number of cold fronts working through the month of november, but despite that, we really haven't had a huge amount of cooler temperatures. remember, on monday morning, we were down to 44 degrees. here in tampa, the 20s. to our north, a quick warmup. yesterday, thanksgiving, we topped out at 83 degrees and then it's going to be another right now not bad. 67 degrees, although the dew point, that's been climbing over the past couple of days, currently running at 62. you hid -- head outside and it feels humid. humidity at 84% and the winds are currently out of the north-northeast at five miles an hour. over to wesley chapel, 62 degrees. if you want to find cooler temperatures, brooksville 54 along with crystal river.
7:15 am
along with sarasota. bradenton at 65 degrees. throughout the interior, most locations either in the lower 60s or some 50s showing up from bartow all the way down towards arcadia, between 57 and 59 degrees. lake placid at 59 as well. very mild once you get down across the southern tip of the state. miami at 75 degree as long with marathon and some 40s showing up, up in tallahassee right now, currently at 49 degrees. we have mor across the state. that means we're not tapping any of that cooler air to our north. it all works across the state which really allows for the temperatures to warm up during the afternoon. we do have maybe a couple of small showers off the east coast but overall, when you look at that red shade on the water vapor imagery showing a lot of dry air is still in place. that's why we keep the rain chances out as we go through the weekend, even though we do have some cold fronts back to our
7:16 am
they work their way towards us, they're just running out of gas. we're not going to see any rain with the fronts, just scattered clouds and eventually as we go through the weekend, we clear out some clouds and drop the humidity just a touch and the temperatures, maybe by two, three, four degrees cooler as we go through the weekend. eventually we are looking for yet a third cold front to swing through here. that will be towards the middle of next week and that one may have enough actually give us a chance of some showers. it's quiet across country. as you work up to the great lakes, we do have a few showers, across michigan heading to new york and then some snow across the u.p. of michigan and also up to maine seeing a few snow flurries as well. back closer to home, we're watching a cold front working down across the state and see any shower activity, just kind of dissipates. we clear out the skies as we go
7:17 am
giving a little bit lower humidity as we get into sunday and monday of next week. so the forecast for today, really looks pretty nice. partly cloudy skies, maybe a touch on the humid side during the afternoon with the daytime high of 81 degrees. then for tonight, scattered clouds, overnight low of 65. for tomorrow, another nice looking day. daytime high of 80 degrees. high tide at 12:11 this afternoon. high tide, next one this evening. winds, they're primarily out of the northerly direction. doing about 10 to 15 knots. seven-day forecast keeps the daytime highs in the upper 70s and we start to dry things out a little bit with some slightly lower humidity as we go through the first part of next week. we have a third cold front as we get into the middle of next

7:28 am
7:29 am
>>jim: it's 7:29. we're waking up to a nice morning. we've had a little bit of patchy fog in some areas this morning but as we look over lakeland right now clouds. right now sitting at 61 degrees. head out to the beach, same story. patchy clouds but very mild at 66 and a light wind out of the east-northeast at three miles an hour. more of an easterly flow today means mild temperatures and a warm afternoon. here in tampa, we're currently sitting at 67 degrees. bradenton 65. still looking at 50s to the north in brooksville. 54 degrees.
7:30 am
and down in arcadia and lake placid, also sitting in the upper 50s. we warm up quickly for this afternoon. partly cloudy skies. daytime highs running in the low 80s as we go through the afternoon. we do have a series of cold fronts that are going to be working across the southeast, across the state as we go through the weekend. eventually we usher in a little bit of drier air as we head into the first part of next week. so time now is 7:30. people are kind of from their turkey comas and hitting the roads. >>reporter: we're still quiet along the interstates. not a lot of issues for drivers this morning. this is a live look at 75 looking to the south in the area of bruce b downs. about eight minutes from this point to i-4. now, we did have a reported accident just north of the camera view. still in the southbound lanes but authorities just getting word of this, just responding. it looks like it's off to the side and delay-free through that

7:35 am
lot and it was not the best assignment but it was good and informative for all the people at home to make sure everyone is safe during the holiday season. we're inside the best buy on dale mabry. this is a tradition here at fox 13. every year we go live at the best buy on northdale mabry, across the way from the wal-mart. we'll keep that tradition going even if the black friday happened yesterday. good news is, if ush coming to the best buy in the -- i think the 1,000 block of northdale mabry, there are door busters available. how many? too many to show you. here are the list of them if you're walking into the store. you've got some tv's down below you as well. vizio saves you $300. the big ticket item this year,
7:36 am
again, $350, save you $250. a little bit to the right, if you're not going to be the 4k, just the 1080p, you're going to save a lot more money, but you're not going to get the 4k quality. with that said, there are still plenty of door busters at this best buy and i'm sure that's the case for a lot of them across the bay area. so if you're going shopping, get out there early because some are still available. back see you later. and shoppers international plaza in tampa can check out the new lightning store today. there's a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:00. it's near dillards. 1,500 square feet. we'll show you lightning games and some players will even stop by on occasion. i wonder if there will be any there today. >>laura: seems like duchess kate
7:37 am
without someone commenting on her sense of attire. fashion designers clamor to dress women in the lime light like this. and when it comes to dressing incoming first lady melania trump, the fashion world is as decided as the political one. >> fashion world fell in love with michelle obama. she's graced the cover of vogue three times. she became the darling of designers and she made the career of up and comers. now that in, the french designer is refusing to dress the fellow immigrant and next first lady z. she came on the map because michelle obama found her. there's a weird hypocrisy saying she won't dress melania trump. >> the rhetoric of racism, sex ism are incompatible with the shared values we live about. that argument is similar to a
7:38 am
was fined for refusing to make arrangements for a same sex wedding. she said it would have violated her valued to do so just like she now says she's morally opposed to dressing melania trump. >> thank you. i bless you. and god bless this beautiful country. >>russell: >>reporter: this is a fashion snub of historic proportions. >> i think it's unprecedented for someone to absolutely refuse to work with the first lady even more so to ask others to do the same. >>reporter: one of the founders of the fashion label told the "new york times" it would be hip indicate -- hypocritical to say we're not dressing a trump. we have to put that before prsonal, political beliefs. >> i think at the end of the day, fashion is going to play its mark. they have a new first lady. she's a fresh, clean slate in terms of her look and style so
7:39 am
her. >> when we see melania at the white house, fashion designers of america are asking people to keep an open mind when it comes to the first lady. >>laura: president elect donald trump's presidential campaign is selling a 14 karat gold christmas tree ornament. red ornament is shaped like a hat and bears trump's winning slogan, make america it's sold on the trump-pence campaign website. >>russell: lightning home tonight. they play the blue jackets. they'll leave for a short road trip after that. bucs are getting ready to play the seahawks on sunday. it will be a test how far they've come this season. seattle one of the best teams on the nfl. the became from raymond james stadium starts at 4:00 and you can watch it here on fox 13.

home team beat the vikings on a last second field goal and cowboys beat the redskins. steelers beat the colts. pittsburgh wide receiver brown caught three touchdown passes from ben roethlisberger. did you watch football? >>laura: it's like the background noise at our house. jim was cooking and watching and cooking and watching and then we much rather hear. what about you? >>russell: i spent some time with my friends and we had dinner with them last night and it's always fun. always fun. big shindig. >>laura: we did have a good meal. turkey, ham, low and slow. jim weber, we'll bring you in and talk about the forecast. did you have a good thanksgiving? >>jim: it was good and i'm still trying to wake up.
7:41 am
you know, sometime at 1:00, 2:00 this afternoon i'll snap out of it and wonder what exactly happened. but we're looking at a pretty nice looking day. we have scattered clouds, nice, mild start to the day. 67 degrees outside. we are heading for the 80s this afternoon. have a couple of cold fronts working their way across the state this weekend. i'll let you know what they mean
7:42 am
7:43 am
7:44 am
>>jim: we really have had a nice warmup this week.
7:45 am
a morning low in tampa of 44 degrees. it was 29 degrees in brooksville and we've steadily warmed these temps up through the week and brought more moisture back. right now you're looking across the gulf of mexico, just a few clouds off in the distance. as we jump across the bay and look over downton tampa, there you see scattered clouds. we've had patchy fog in a few spots but now the sun is up. that burns off very, very quickly. outside right now, mild, 67 degrees. the dew point is up when you step outside, you're starting to notice it feels maybe a little bit more humid outside. humidity currently sitting at 84%. light north-northeasterly wind right now at five miles an hour. still in the 50s to the north. brooksville, you're at 54 along with crystal river. that is 67 here in tampa along with downtown st. petersburg. all the way down in sarasota, it's 67. bradenton at 65. lower 60s throughout the
7:46 am
placid. wauchula is 61. over in winter haven, 62 degrees. we've had a warming trend the past several days and today we're warmer, running four to some cases up to seven degrees warmer compared to this time yesterday. so yesterday we actually topped out at 83 degrees across the tampa. as we go through the afternoon today, we're in the lower 80s. view across the more of that easterly flow across the state so we're not tapping any of that cooler or drier air to the north that allows for the temperatures this afternoon to get into the lower 80s. but even though we've got some cold fronts back to our north and west, pushing our way, the water vapor loop really shows a lot of dry air in place so even though we hav the cold fronts heading our way, we're not going to see rain with them.
7:47 am
that humidity a little bit and we drop the daytime highs by two or three, maybe four degrees in some cases. right now fronts are back to our north and west. you do see maybe a couple of showers along the boundary. that's the first one that swings through later today and then we have another one back across texas. that will be swinging across the southeast as we go through the weekend as well. as you look across the country, there's really not a whole lot going on. we do have some rain and some mountain snow across the pacific great lakes, you have a little snow flurry activity, some rain a bit further to the south. once you get to maine, you see a little sleet and freezing rain. same time we're talking about the winter conditions starting to spread across the country. we're looking at the tropics, hurricane otto made landfall yesterday with winds of 110 miles an hour. now, it's now made its way out into the pacific.
7:48 am
to a tropical storm but still seeing winds at 70 miles an hour. it's working its way towards the west at 13 miles an hour and since it made its way all the way across land without losing the tropical characteristics or the designation, it keeps its name so even though we've moved the storm from the atlantic basin now into the pacific, it still maintains the name tropical storm tuesday of next week, it will eventually dissipate over some cooler waters. now, we're going to watch the fronts working their way across the southeast down over us, some scattered clouds, warmer temperatures. over the next couple of days, as the fronts move through, eventually they dry the atmosphere out so we turn a little lower on the humidity as we go through monday and tuesday of next week. but yet again, we'll be watching another front, that third front
7:49 am
of next week and that will eventually bring us a better chance of some showers as we get into wednesday and thursday of next week. for today, partly cloudy skies. daytime high of 81 degrees and then for tonight, overnight low of 65 under scattered clouds. for tomorrow, a mix of sun and clouds, pleasant afternoon. daytime high of 80 degrees. high tide at 12:11 this afternoon. marine forecast through the weekend, looking knots and seas running two to three feet as we go into the weekend. seven-day forecast, daytime highs stay in the upper 70s. overnight lows mild as well in the 60s and that rain chance does finally come up which we could use a rain. so far only .01 inch of rain for the entire month. we could use a little bit of that. time is 7:49. let's check on the roads with courtney.
7:50 am
and parking lots. you'll find some busy traffic there. as far as the interstates go, we're in good shape. checking on the travel speeds, looks like southbound 275, an average of 57 miles an hour in the area of busch boulevard. you can see the veterans expressway clocking in at 60 miles an hour south of gunn highway and of course, no problems for you in either direction across the howard frankland bridge. southbound i-75 before bruce is off to the side and traffic sensors still in the green. no problems to get through this area. live look at the sunshine skyway bridge, a beautiful shot here across the bridge near the north fishing pier, looking to the south, no problems between pinellas and manatee counties. >>laura: thank you. >>russell: jennifer epstein at the humane society. >>laura: that's all you need to
7:51 am
