pbartow, quarter mile to brandon, pover to st. petersburg so it pwill be some spots where you'll phave decent visibility, others pcompletely fogged in. pthe point is, you need to slow pit down as for the drive we're pgoing to have to deal with not ponly this morning but tomorrow pmorning as well. pwe're in the mid 60s so at least pit's mild. ponce the fog lifts out, look at pthat. p81 degrees. p81 for a high temperature this pafternoon but the rain chances pare going way up by thursday. pwe'll talk about that in just a pfew minutes. p>>vanessa: we're talking about pthe fog. pwe have a live look at 275. pthis is near bearss avenue and pwe're fogged in this area as pwell. ptravel times are running up to pspeed. pno crashes to report so enjoy. p>>laura: thank you. pwell, the results are in. pand hillary clinton edges out pbernie sanders in a historically pclose iowa democratic caucus. p>>russell: ted cruz wins a psecure victory in that crowded

pin the next eight days. pmeanwhile, we have very strong porganization for ted cruz and it pshowed last night. pon the democratic race, this was pto many a big surprise given the pfact that hillary clinton was up pmore than 20 points a couple of pmonths ago in iowa. pbernie sanders kept closing that pgap week by week and with pturnout of young voters was able pto effectively fight hillary pclinton to a virtual tie. pwith that, they split the pdelegates and entered new phampshire where bernie sanders phas a substantial lead. pboth races are a very long way pfrom finish, russell. p>>laura: what about the ones who premain? pwhat about john kasich and carly pfiorina, dr. ben carson? pwhat about them? p>> you will have some pdepartures. pmartin o'malley, he's decided to psuspend his campaign so he's the pfirst one out after iowa. pthen you move on to the

pthis would include a guitar pshaped hotel with 800 rooms. pnow, all of thee projects are pexpected to add about 15,000 pjobs for construction and ositions. pthe expansion is included in pthat gaming compact signed by pgovernor scott and seminole ptribe chairman in december while pthe measure has supporters, not peveryone likes the idea. pone of the groups who did not psupport this idea is no casinos, pa lobby group right here in pflorida. pnow, the chairman or the resident of that organization phas said that the agreement is, pquote, a bad idea for florida, psaying it violates the pconstitution, also it undermines pthe economy and it expands pgambling across the state. pso we'll continue to follow this pand keep you posted as we learn panything further. pback to you. p>>russell: coming up an update pto a story we told you about pyesterday morning. p>>laura: the newly retired olice officer that may get to

plights everywhere. p>>russell: he analyzes this. p>>dave: you're right. pi do. phe's only been 39% correct. p>>russell: oh, dear. pfarmer's almanac, let's start on pthat one, too, while we're here. p>>dave: we at fox are 93%. pi'm just saying. p>>laura: we've been working with pyou a lot of years. pwe understand. p>>dave: one of my first jobs in pthis business was to interview pfrench creek freddie. phe took the microphone. pyou know, the big fuzzy thing on pthe microphone and he bit it up pand spit it out. pthat was the interview. pi'm not kidding you. pit was crazy. pokay. phave mile visibility in tampa pnow. pa quarter mile visibility. pi wonder where that video is. pquarter mile from brandon. pbartow, you're up and down from
roblem is, we get two types of pfog going on here. pyou've got your traditional pradiation fog in these inland plocations. pthis is likely going to lift out pas the sun comes up late morning pinto the afternoon and when you ush a south or even southeast pwind into our area in february, pjanuary with colder waters of pthe gulf, it generates fog. pthat's the issue we have. pso dense fog advisories out pthrough 10:00 this morning. pand after that, as it starts to plift, i think it's going to be a retty day so my main concern, pof course, is the morning pcommute and the fact it's still pdark out. lease slow it down, especially pin the areas where the speed plimits are a little higher. p65 degrees and we're going to pgreet you in frost proof, almdale, tampa is at 65. pit's 64 in st. petersburg so
pthanks to that very light south pto southeast winds. pgenerating all of that sea fog pbut once it lifts out, ptemperatures in the upper 70s pand eventually making their way pback to the lower 80s. ptomorrow morning will be exactly plike this. pwe'll hit 80 today, maybe 81 and pfog right back up again tomorrow pmorning. pthen we're going to be watching pthis line of showers and pthunderstorms move through the parea. pthe way things are setting up is pit looks like by thursday, maybe plate morning, early into the pafternoon, a round of rain comes psqueezing through. pi'll show you a couple of pdifferent computer model rojections which take it out pthrough early friday morning. p25 inches, 1.06. pokay. plet me check another model. psee what they're saying. phonestly, pretty much the same pthing so pretty good bet as we pget into the thursday afternoon ptime frame and we're going to pget close to maybe a little bit pmore than an inch of rain, which
psunday, we've got another setup pwhich could bring us another pinch of rain. pfor the month of february, we paverage 2.81 inches of rain. pwe may see most of that this pweek. pagain, thursday and on sunday. pso highs today will be around 81 pdegrees. pjust please, please note this is pone of the fogiest moments we've phad in quite some time. pfog will settle in tonight with pan overnight low of 67 degrees pand then mostly cloudy with a p30% rain chance tomorrow and phigh temperature of 78 degrees. pthe stubborn sea fog may keep pyou from doing some boating ptoday so please, please keep an peye closely on those pvisibilities because you know pwhat happens when that sea fog plifts out. pit can come in as quick and pyou're stuck. pnext seven days, i mentioned the pon thursday. pi know it's the beginning of the pstate fair but it's quiet friday pand saturday with more rain pcoming in on sunday in the pafternoon. p>>vanessa: thank you.
plook in the area just west of pthe gandy bridge so this is inellas county. plooks hazy out there but as dave pmentioned, there are areas pseeing improvement and it pdoesn't look too terrible here. pof course, any areas that you phave reduced visibility or phaving trouble seeing, make sure pyou're using the low beam lights pand slow it down. pwe want you safe on the proadways. pwe want to check our bridge ptimes crossing the water on the pgandy, looks like you're in for pa five minute ride. psix minutes across the howard pfrankland and 10 minutes across pthe courtney campbell causeway. p>>russell: white house is set to ropose spending $1 billion the pnext two years to fight cancer. resident obama set the pambitious goal of curing cancer pduring his state of the union paddress. phe wants to ask congress for $25 pmillion for 2017 and spend $195 pmillion to start this year. pthat will go to the national pinstitutes of health. p>>laura: we have an update to a pstory from yesterday morning
pa retired police officer in ohio pmay get to keep his canine artner after all without pspending a dime. pmatthew hickey retired last week pand he was told that he couldn't pkeep his partner, ajax, because pthe canine is still fit for pduty. phe launched an online campaign pto buy him at a police action. pit's generated more than p$65,000. p$65,000. pyesterday the city announced a lan for hickey to keep ajax for pfree as long as he agrees to pbecome an auxiliary offer. paccording to his fundraising age, he's not been cleared by phis doctor to return to active pduty. pwe'll let you know if anything pchanges. psaga continues. p>>russell: but it sounds like a phappy ending. p>>laura: they were going to pauction him off. p>>russell: that's the strange art of the story.
p>>laura: coming up, one very poverdue book resurfaces seven pdecades late. pfind out how much it could cost pthe person who checked it out. p>>russell: plus hillary has a pbig night in iowa but a psupporter who will forever be pknown as sticker guy stole some pof her thunder. ptaylor has you can save over 500 bucks when you switch to progressive. that's a fact. but this whole "blondes have more fun" thing... standing by for fun.

pstranger to getting up in front pof a crowd. pthis time she wanted to do psomething special and creative pfor her school's winter party so pshe came up with this and worked pthe crowd at the party and it pwasn't just her third graders pand the faculty she's impressed. pnow after her husband matt osted her video on facebook, pguys, it's been viewed more than p1.5 million times, went crazy pviral over the weekend and we plike that. p>>laura: yeah. p>>taylor: the whole song is very pclever. pi will have that on the "scene pon tv" section of our website so pyou can see the whole video. pvery cool. pwe like that. p>>laura: we do. p>>taylor: next up, everyone is ptalking about the iowa caucuses pand while it seems that the race pwas almost too close to call pbetween hillary clinton and pbernie sanders, and they're pstill working to determine the pwinner overnight, see that guy? pthere was something else in his
paround the internet. pyes. pthis video of a random guy just pstealing some of the spotlight pturns out is a drake university pstudent named peter who will now pforever be known as sticker guy pand people couldn't help but pnotice his antics in the pbackground while hillary clinton pgave a speech last night at her piowa campaign headquarters. p>>russell: oh, my. p>>taylor: right? pno name. p>>russell: i would have thought phillary's handlers would have pdone something about that. p>>taylor: and hi, mom is so old. pwe have to move on. prubio, it was a close call and pthen we have that graphic. pso our final hot click, we're pactually not going to have time pfor you. pit was a really fun statue kind

pfirst we have to get to dave and pthe weather. pit's foggy out there this pmorning. p>>dave: it is and it's pwidespread. pinland locations, quarter mile pvisibility, back to the coast, pquarter mile visibility so kind pof all over the place in terms pof low, low visibilities. pfog will lift out probably pmid-morning or so inland and pthen maybe a little bit later palong the coastline and starting poff in the mid 60s and our pnormal low in the 50s. pstarting off that warm, it's not pgoing to take much sunshine to pget us back in the lower 80s. pthat's where i think we're going pto be for later this afternoon. pabout 81 degrees. pthe rain is moving in for pthursday, especially by thursday pafternoon so we'll talk more pabout that and then another rain pchance for sunday so a couple of pthings to talk about in a bit. p>>vanessa: right now we have a plive look over the sunshine pskyway bridge and we do have a pcrash that's actually reported pthere with no lane blockage but pi want you to be extra careful pas you cross the water here just pin case. pyou can see it is a situation
pdoesn't look too bad once you pget to the top of the bridge but phere where we're looking to the pnorth fishing pier, definitely pslow it down. p>>laura: from davenport to des pmoines, cedar rapids to sioux pcity, last night iowans packed pchurches and schools, community pcenters, all to pick the next resident of the united states pand new this morning, a winner pis declared for the democrats. pbut it was close. phillary clinton beating out pbernie sanders by a hair. arty says this was one of the pstrongest turnouts ever. p>>russell: to the republicans, ptexas senator ted cruz unseats pdonald trump as the new prepublican frontrunner. phe sailed to victory 28%. pthis is the second presidential pelection in a row where the pso-called gold standard of iowa olls, that's the des moines pregister poll has picked the pwrong republican caucus winner. p>> iowa has sent notice that the prepublican nominee and the next resident of the united states
p>> i was told by everybody, do pnot go to iowa. pyou could never finish even in pthe top 10. pand i said, but i have friends pin iowa. pi know a lot of people in iowa. pi think they'll really like me. plet's give it a shot. pthey said, don't do it. pi said, i have to do it. pand we finished second when we pstarted this journey. p>>laura: here is where the top pof the g.o.p. field stands after piowa. pdonald trump in second place pwith 24%. pthe big surprise of the night, pflorida senator marco rubio ptaking third just one point pbehind trump. p>>russell: the race for the pwhite house moves to new phampshire with two fewer pcandidates. plong shot martin o'malley and prepublican hopeful mike huckabee pboth decided to end their pcampaigns. po'malley never cracked double pdigits.
pnew hampshire primary is next ptuesday. p>>laura: president of the pinteshl national olympic pcommittee says he's confident pconditions will be good for the psummer games despite the zika pvirus. pthere's no risk except to regnant women. pgames will be held in august pduring brazil's winter with pcooler temperatures that can cut pdown on the mosquito opulations. pworld health organization is psaying this epidemic is an pinternational emergency. p>>russell: virus is in the same pcategory as ebola, meaning presearch and aid will be fast ptracked to tackle the infection. pthe spread coincides with the psurge of babies born with brain pdefects that have abnormally psmall heads in brazil. pno definitive evidence is roving they're connected but pthere is enough that health pofficials are advising pregnant pwomen to postpone visits to pbrazil and other countries with
pthat list includes 28 locations, pmost of them in latin america pand the caribbean. pit could be at least six months puntil doctors prove or disprove pany connection between zika and pthe surge in birth defects in pbrazil. p>>laura: last week the cruise pdelay caused passengers a trip pto kozumel. pthey sailed three days now pwithout docking anywhere. pthat was a big disappointment pand now with fears of the zika pvirus, some consider it a pfortunate turn of events. p>> we were prepared with bug pspray but i think since we pdidn't stop in the part, it made pme feel better. pwe weren't exposed. p>>laura: most major airlines are poffering full or partial refunds pto pregnant customers.
pf.d.r. was president and kas pcasablanca won the oscar. pit was the same year a new pjersey man checked out a book pfrom the library and he would pnot return it for 71 years. phe was 13 when he checked out p"football through the years." phe got sick and then forgot pabout it for another seven pdecades. phis wife died in december. pwhile his daughter was helping phem clean out the keepsakes, she pfound the book. pshe told him to call the plibrary. phe didn't want to. p>> he said, you know, you're a plittle late with this book. pi said, don't tell anybody pbecause i don't want to go to pjail. p>> first i heard is that he was pconcerned he would go to jail pwhich he would not. pi can assure him. p>>russell: 1944 the library pcharged a two cent per day fine pfor overdue books. pthat would add up to more than p$500. pthese days the line rather caps
pthey have told mr. ryan he can pkeep the book for free. pthey just want to see it. p"football through the years." pisn't that funny? p>>laura: all right. pso the big story this morning, papart from the iowa caucus presults is the fog. pdave and vanessa are fixing to pget you out the door safely. p>>russell: and why the landing pat kennedy space center is so
plook at that thing, for features florida shrimp and clams. first saut\ olive oil, vegetables, and sausage, simmer until ready. now add the fresh florida shrimp and clams. things are getting delicious! once the shrimp is ready and clams have opened, add the final touch of creamy butter and juicy tomatoes; garnish with parsley
p>>dave: now that we're getting pcloser to sunrise you can see pthe u.s.f. marine science pcamera, look at the sea fog phanging around. pas you look above it, and you pget back to some clear skies, ponce the fog lifts out, it's pactually going to be a beautiful pfebruary day and for many of us, pwe're going to go above 80 pdegrees. pthe main concern is here for the pnext couple of hours as we're pgetting into the heart of the pmorning commute. pin tampa the visibilities have pgone way up the past couple of phours so that's good but what a retty start to the day. pand again, getting back to the plower 80s so temperatures prunning way above normal for plater this afternoon. pwe've got one mile visibility in ptampa, quarter to half mile but pwhen you look at this, i can ptell you this is actually better pthan it was just 23 minutes ago pso as we're getting closer to psunrise, conditions are pimproving a little bit but we're pnot letting our guard down any
