item or less. so when it comes to electronic items, as far as your computers and things of that nature, if you waited to buy those items for the tax-free holiday weekend, you are out of luck. this year there's no exemption on electronic items so last year where you were able to get your computer and not have to pay tax on the first 750, that's not the case this year. if you're a student and you may need graphing calculators, those are not included this year and other items that are not included include staples, staplers and even your multi purpose computer paper. that's not included as well. these are just some examples you'll see as you make your way out and prepare to wrap up your back to school shopping. i do want to mention when it comes to things like backpacks, they fall into that category. back

6:07 am

the officer thought the man next to him had a gun which was actually a toy truck. kinsey is seeking unspecified damages. >>laura: the head of the cdc says that area spraying is quickly killing mosquitos at the center of the outbreak. they started using a new chemical yesterday. it's banned in puerto rico right now because of environmental concerns but it's mosquitos that pesticides on the ground cannot. they're only using small amounts at dusk and dawn so there should be no effect on people. governor scott is confident the response is working. >> we have good news. one mile radius, we can take 10 blocks in the northwest corner and say we don't believe there's any active transmission of zika so from the state health department standpoint, we're very comfortable that we are not seeing any active cases there.
6:09 am
governor announced free zika testing for pregnant women. that began yesterday. it can take from two days to a week to come back with results. >>walter: hillary clinton is leading donald trump among florida voters. she's up six points in a head to head matchup. clinton also leads by a four point margin when the green party and libertarian candidates are factored in. marco rubio leads and allen grayson in head to head matchups. he needs to win his own primary. that's august 30. >>laura: some big changes are happening at tampa international. >>walter: big, big. big. at 6:30, alcides segui will give us a new look at some of the new additions. plus -- thankfully jennifer epstein is taking us shopping to show us what's in style for the younger crowd this school year.

atmosphere. that will lead to early morning showers along the coast and then we'll start to shift everything further inland. things are starting to pop, especially over anna maria island. already experiencing tropical downpours, a little bit of light rain over the sunshine skyway. temperatures run 80 degrees and highs today will likely stay in the upper 80s. introducing dunkin's new cold brew coffee, steeped slowly in cold water for small batches with an ultra-smooth, full-bodied flavor. discover the craft of cold brew today and keep on.
6:11 am
6:12 am
i got shot down over vietnam and spent eleven months in a pow camp. what donald trump said about our members of the military being captured is a disgrace. he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured. when you fly over enemy territory, the odds might be against you being able to come home. mp doesn't understand the weight of sending americans into harm's way. he's unfit to be president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. dunkin' donuts' unbelievable selection of breakfast sandwiches, freshly made all day, so you can enjoy them any type of way, any time of day. that's breakfast whenevs.
6:13 am
>>dave: starting to see light here. beautiful, nice start to the day in tampa. toward the coastline, though, we're beginning to pop up those pesky, annoying showers and with the onshore wind flow that we have, it's only going to be a matter of time before all coastal counties get involved with this so i zoom in because right around the longboat key area, we had a couple of tropical downpours. i'm not noticing a lot of lightning with this so it's rain
6:14 am
deals and then it's done. but of course, that can definitely interfere with your morning commute. anna maria has light rain. it looks like a heavier shower that moved over the sunshine skyway is beginning to weaken. as they go further north, up around cedar key, which has had a fair share of rain the last week or so, this thunderstorm and this actually has some lightning in there as well, is slowly sneaking southeastward. it's not in citrus county yet but it is close and then what happens as you go more showers ahead of that popping up. so coastal areas, we've got a setup very similar to yesterday where as soon as we start to bubble up and warm things up, look at the showers. just out of nowhere they're popping over the gulf and the rain chances will be highest this morning if you're west of i-75 and then like yesterday, i know parts of polk county had a few hours of rain yesterday in the afternoon. everything will shift inland.
6:15 am
we experienced and lots and lots of tropical moisture sitting in place. and i don't think this is going to change and if anything, we're going to get more rain over the next several days because watch what happens. you're going to have a trough of low pressure, basically an elongated area of low pressure develop here and hang out over the northeastern gulf. not a great place to hang out because what that does is it pumps in amounts of moisture with the southwest wind and in turn, really starts to bring up the rainfall amounts. again, one computer model and i'm going through next tuesday night but that's a lot of rain. okay? now, this is obviously subject to change if more of the focus, if more of the energy goes northwest but this just gives you an idea, four, five, six inches of rain. wouldn't surprise me between now
6:16 am
everybody to realize, check back in each morning and let's see the progression of the weather pattern but i can tell you between now and next wednesday, it's going to be very wet. whether you get two inches of rain or four inches of rain or more, everybody is going to get some rain. 88 degrees for a high today. coastal showers and storms during the morning move inland. warm, very sultry overnight tonight and once the sun comes up tomorrow, the showers will start once again along the immediate coastline and then they'll move inland during afternoon hours tomorrow. honestly, boaters, it's going to be a tough weekend to do the boating. each day probably late in the day is the best time. the mornings, you will have light to moderate chop dealing with the coastal showers. next seven days, we'll pump the rain chances up, at least 70% for saturday, for sunday, for monday and no, not individual washout days but just good chances of rain each and every
6:17 am
okay? >>vanessa: thank you. we are hearin from pasco county sheriff's office that drivers should steer clear of u.s. 41 and bowman road. this is going to be north of -- towards the north end of pasco county, just south of county line road. they're just calling it an investigation into an incident. they haven't specified whether it's traffic related but i am seeing indications of traffic being stopped. about, i would say, a couple of in road. so it's definitely an area that you'll want to steer clear of because you'll probably be sitting there for awhile. we're not sure what it is. we'll let you know what we find out. here is the suncoast parkway. there's also, from what i can tell, a no name road. there's no names on the map system but it's just to the east. that's another option for you. so we'll keep you posted on the late west that. in the meantime, we'll send it over to you at the desk.
6:18 am
from the start of the school year. >>laura: we are and in the last hour, jen took a look at what high schoolers are wearing these days and now we want to check out fashions for the younger ones. >>jennifer: back when i was in middle school, flannels and combat boots were all the rage. remember that? i've been wondering, what are kids wearing now? i found 12-year-old twins to show off their style. they are ready to take on the sixth grade and ready to take me shopping. every kidee they know exactly what they're looking for. you like that one? let me see. andrew likes the sporty look so we're at the perfect place. comfy casual. that's what you're looking for. >> yes. i like this color. that looks school. this is the school colors so yeah, that would work. and these work, too. >>jennifer: perfect. new sneakers are a must. >> these are cool.

6:43 am
pre-pro #28 tc: 33:15:00 (dave) wx live (dave) >>dave: dry morning. showers are starting to pop up. i will say this. at this time yesterday, we had but take a look. as you see the quick little shower, especially down near sarasota, between sarasota and bradenton, we've had a pretty decent line of tropical downpours develop. second round of showers for you, longboat key, moving southwest to northeast, raining in bradenton. not raping in sarasota yet but he do have heavy rain off to the west. pinellas county, we're developing a few showers. it's only a matter of time
6:44 am
downpours worked their way in every one of our coastal counties. citrus county and now in levy, citrus county line with that particular shower and backing it out once again, you can just tell there's ton of moisture in the atmosphere. as we start to warm things up, the instability we're going to have over land plus the tropical moisture is going to equal well above normal rain chances. our rain chances today are running in the nei 60% to 70% which is pretty high. 80 degrees in tampa. 80 in st. petersburg. we barely made it to 88, 89 yesterday and the one good thing about having all of these rain chances way above normal is we don't have the extreme heat so that's the good news. now, over the course of the next few days, computer models have been hinting at some type of weak, low pressure formation
6:45 am
i want to show it to you here. as it develops over the weekend, and where this sets up shop is huge for us and it really will tell a tale of how much rain we're going to get. see this weak low develop here over the state? then maybe start to drift a little bit more toward the west with time? well, what it's trying to do is just force tons of moisture in here over the weekend next week and that's why the computer models are running very, very high with the rainfall totals. but if that little weak low is further west, we don't get as much rain. so the potential exists for some very heavy rain, especially sunday, monday, tuesday and i keep urging you to check back in with us all weekend long. meantime, today looks like yesterday. clouds, showers along the coast in the morning, inland this
6:46 am
we'll stay in the upper 80s. why? clouds and rain chances stay up and notice the 70% for saturday or sunday and for monday and more skytower radar views in a few minutes. okay? >>vanessa: all right. thank you so much, dave. 6:46. we have sky fox arriving on scene of the pasco county incident. as we mentioned before, we're being told it's a traffic crash that resulted from police activity affecting u.s. 41 northbound, southbound this is in the pasco lake it's 41 specifically in the area of bowman where we're seeing this investigation. shut downs here northbound and southbound, they have crime scene tape blocking off the roadway. while we do know that one person was transported to the hospital with some injuries, we're also seeing what looks like an extended scene that's being set up here near at least two vehicles involved with the crash so unfortunately, the situation does not look very good here. we have reports of some traffic
6:47 am
but as i mentioned before, your best work arounds are going to be suncoast parkway northbound, southbound. if you're heading southbound on 41, you wouldn't want to go beyond county line road. that will be one way to get to suncoast parkway. northbound direction drivers just state road 52 is going to be your entrance to get onto suncoast parkway. don't go further north than that point. we do have a crew headed to the scene. we're expecting a media briefing from the pasco county sheriff's office soon, later this morning, so we'll be getting details. stick with us and we'll keep you posted with what we learn. we'll get to 75. we do have reports northbound of a crash in the area of 60. i haven't been able to find it on the cameras, not seeing any delays. just want to let you know to keep your eyes pealed. be careful. >>walter: typically we go to charley for a little reprieve to take a step away from the tough headlines. we're going to get to him on a
6:48 am

we do every year. i just did it again this year, but that was from a year or two ao. i didn't know it was going to be the last time i would see the man alive for goodness sakes which is a lesson in and of itself of appreciating every day and tell those you love, you love them. i have to tell you a quick story about dave mc kay. 18 years ago i started here at fox 13 and i was a general assignment reporter in north pinellas and pasco and it was christmas time and i was doing a live shot in front of countryside mall to all the busy christmas shoppin. on either side of me during my live shot were open parking spaces. there were two parking spaces open. randy and dave, that was the afternoon -- he would do afternoons with randy price at the time. they had the 5:00 news up on their monitor and they thought that was so funny. here is this idiot on tv talking about how crowded the mall is and there's two open parking places next to him. they said, we have to call that guy. they get me on the phone and live on the radio.

where are you from? i said do you know what? you're right. look. it's local news. i'm trying to make it look like it's crowded. what do you want from me? they laughed and i laughed and it began this relationship and that's how it was with dave. we would tease each other, laugh. we were rivals sometimes. i wanted to be dave mc kay at times and he would probably never admit he wanted to be me but he loved the tv thing and i liked being on the radio with him. it was a great friendship and today and a little less entertaining today. my thoughts go out to the radio family, especially veronica, his cohost in the morning. i know she's hurting. a lot of people are hurting over there. rest in peace, dave mc kay. and yes, i'm wearing a goofy shirt. he would think that was funny but i'm wearing the goofy shirt because it's comic con at the convention center, kicks off today at noon and runs all weekend. i have a preview for you.
