60s, still really not looking bad at all out there. the temperatures yesterday morning in citrus county were in the low to mid-30s. this morning we're closer to 40 degrees. so again, a lot of improvement in the comfort factor this morning and as well as later this afternoon. as we make our way through the day today, again, very little chance for any rain across all of central florida. janelle, what are you seeing now? the roads are dry. a couple of fender-benders, i posted them on twitter. here's i-275 through downtown tampa, traffic up to speed, just six minutes from here to the howard frankland bridge. heads up, a warning if you will, if you drive the overnight hours, maybe heading to the airport early tomorrow morning, just keep in mind the southbound exit from i-275 to memorial highway will be closed overnight for some construction until 5:00 a.m. it's very important that you

6:04 am
the strategy of the lawyers going to be a very important in the so-called wrestling ring of the courtroom. i talked to a legal expert about each side's game plan yesterday. he said there's a bunch of sealed documents from an fbi investigation that might even include the actual sex tape of hulk hogan. that is what gawker media is trying to make public record by claiming the contents of the sealed documents are actually key to their defense but if those documents were to be made public and the sex tape of hogan is made public record then the case against gawker would fall apart. it would be essentially over because the sex tape would legally be available to anyone at that point. >> he's claiming the fact that i talk about my sex life doesn't mean you have the right to disclose what i do in the providessies of a bedroom -- privacy of a bedroom. when i choose to let you know i choose to let you know. what i don't want you to know you don't have the right to know.
6:05 am
the line not just for hogan, gawker says they -- if they were to lose this case it would seriously hurt their business model, possibly even put them out of business. you can imagine that means a lot of celebrities across the country also paying close attention to this hoping they gain more rights to privacy. so a lot of the line -- a lot on the line. there's several media companies involved in this court case as well paying attention to whether or not the documents get released. we'll stream it all on our web site and app. for now live in st. pete, adam winer, abc action news. 6:05. president obama is aiming to shape the legacy of his eight years in office. at tuesday night's state of the union address his final one, his said the future americans want is within our reach but in order to get it lawmakers must
