6:11 am
>>dave: 58 degrees in brooksville. temperatures on the mid 60s for tampa and we still have the lower 70s in st. petersburg. it will be another great day as we go to 83 degrees. i know. you look at that and you think that's just perfect. tomorrow is going to be even nicer. so stick around for that plus the this is mike's office. if he doesn't show up, he doesn't get paid. too often marco rubio didn't show up and failed us when he did. i am patrick murphy.
6:12 am
whether it's protecting social security and women's health care or growing the economy, we've got to start solving problems instead of pointing fingers. i am patrick murphy and i approve this message because i'll never stop working for you. my dad was a family doctor in pinellas county for 55 years. he used to even take me on house calls. both my parents taught me to help others. that's why i believe in public service. as your governor we got things done, and if you send me to
6:13 am
nned parenthood and women's health care. and i'll take care of our veterans. i'm charlie crist and i approve this message because i'll put you, the people first.
6:14 am
as dave has reminded us, this sunday we turn >>laura: this sunday we turn back the clock. dramatic savings time ends at 2:00 a.m. on sunday. while an extra hour of sleep may sound great, doctors say it can take a toll on your health. any change in your schedule can clock and that can lead to seasonal affective disorder. this is a legitimate thing. it's a form of depression with symptoms of hopelessness. doctors say you should use the time before turning back the clock to ease into it. >>russell: that was a downer and a half right there. >>laura: you're welcome, everybody.
6:15 am
going to be great, get an extra hour of sleep. >>dave: not anymore. when you go to bed saturday night, let's say 11:00 and you turn it back to 10:00, you get a big smile on your face. you do. >>laura: and i know people don't like it but when you lose that hour and, you know, you have that extra hour of sleep, i feel like i'm more -- maybe it's because of our shift. i feel more productive. this phase of the calendar, i'm winter hibernation mode. >>dave: i like the earlier that's how i've always been. we're in the 60s. most of us are in the 60s this friday morning. west chase, new tampa, plant city at 63 degrees. you look at these temperatures and they're nice. even the 70 in st. petersburg, it's above normal but it's a nice start to the day. contrast that with a 55 that we had in crystal river and 58 that we had in brooksville. temperatures in the mid to upper 70s south and along the coast.
6:16 am
mid 60s except wauchula. you're at 59 degrees. so moisture levels are decent, right? we've had that moderate humidity all week long, although it's a nice little start to the day. as this front comes through and yes, it's been taking its sweet time, it probably will be late tonight or tomorrow morning when it finally squeezes through central florida. you're going to notice probably during the late afternoon hours today, our dew points go back up a little bit, maybe mid to 60s and by tomorrow afternoon, upper 50s. this front will provide us with somewhat drier air. but it's not going to be extreme. and the good news is, as this front comes through, boy, you really see it now with our water raper loop, this is mid level moisture and behind it, it drys out. front will come through today and then that drier air, that seasonable weather, it's going to continue for several more
6:17 am
going to have it for a day or two and then it's gone. you watch the future cast and you can actually see the very thin line of clouds associated with this front so by 7:00 tonight, jacksonville, tallahassee and then watch as it squeezes through by very early tomorrow morning. so yeah, we're looking at a fantastic weekend but the good news is, we're going to extend tis lovely weather all the way through at least the middle of next week as well. 7:44 our sunrise time today with a high of 83 maybe a bit breezy. low 65 degrees. and then mostly sunny, a little drier for you tomorrow and your high temperature around 80 which, by the way, that's our normal high. it's 80 for this time of year. light chop today, boaters, i do have a moderate chop tomorrow and sunday. both days, northeast winds around 15 knots. i'm looking for the next seven days. no significant rain and the high
6:18 am
low temperatures 62 to 65. that's pretty much going to be our range the next seven days. >>vanessa: i got some good news for roadways here. in the last report we told you about the dog that was wandering the interstate. the dog has been picked up nearby so this was originally reported southbound 275 at fowler avenue. the dog was found in a parking lot over by bush and floor florp. sittish but okay and good news even more is now the delays we were showing you earlier through the area are completely gone. so enjoy that enjoy these travel times as well. south from fowler avenue to the selmon, eight minutes along 75. 11 minutes that drive westbound drivers on i-4, buchman to 75 and only taking four minutes from pinellas bay way to the 375 exit in pinellas county, taking 275. >>russell: there's certain songs you simply cannot escape from. the closer we get to christmas.

6:37 am
mission changing. if it weren't for partners like wa-wa that we're able to lean into the problem with us and really make it front and center, we wouldn't be able to do programs like mobile pantries, my mobile market. we do things that we try to get fresh produce, fresh vegetables into the community and to the children specifically. one in seven adults are food insecure, one in four children are food insecure so for them to be able to lean into this with us and make a difference and to the commitment they have to our community and to the problem here. >>reporter: hard to believe one in four. thank you for that. i appreciate that. store opens at 8:00. free coffee at all wa-was across the state of florida. they're expecting to give out around 70 million cups of coffee today alone across the state. with that said, yeah, all day today it will be just like this at this wa-wa. check it out.

6:41 am
our sunrise this morning. but you know what? come sunday morning, the sun will be close to being up. yeah. that's the difference when you turn the clocks back, you're going to get that sun earlier in the morning. for you early risers, it's obviously fantastic and really for the kids going to school, you know, at 7:30 and it's still not sun up, that will help next week. i have 57 degrees in ocala, brooksville at 58.
6:42 am
proof, all these spots in the 60s and it's really a decent start to the day. it's always about the wind direction and while it's relatively light, you can tell it's almost due north. due north wind will make it feel a little nicer outside versus an east wind which is still better than a south or a southwest wind which we haven't had, knock on wood, in weeks. that's why it does feel a little nicer. it's a couple of degrees cooler this morning than it was. now, once this f through and it will happen later tonight, very early tomorrow morning, we will sustain that north wind, northwest at times throughout the weekend and that's what's going to make it feel very nice outside. so comfy as far as the dew points go. your front, here it comes, just out ahead of it there's been one or two sprinkles and that's about the worst case scenario. rain is not going to be an issue with this front but we're getting to the point now and i know you're yelling at the tv.
6:43 am
this is the dry season and november is the driest month of the year. just hard to get rain. but we will get some drier air coming in behind the front courtesy of the north to northwest wind. highs today go back to around 83 degrees give or take a degree. sunrise, there it is. it's an hour away at 7:44. tonight the overnight lows near 65 degrees and then for tomorrow, 80. a little bit drier, kind of a it should feel real nice. the only thing that we could pick on in the forecast this weekend may be some of the winds offshore, more of a moderate chop anticipated for saturday and for sunday with your next seven days showing us delightful weather. 80 to 83 for highs and lows in the low to mid 60s and turning the clocks back. that's the last day i get to remind you, though.
6:44 am
weather report. >>dave: i'm going to text everybody this weekend. >>russell: >>vanessa: and snap it. you'll snap chat it, too. we'll switch gears and get to roads. nothing popping up here other than the usual congestion which we typically start to see first build along 275 approaching i-4. this camera here is at bird street where it's definitely showing some slowing down going on in the area. travel times are now into the moderate range with t minutes right now to get from bearss avenue to i-4. so far, so good along eastbound i-4 heading further into eastern hillsborough county, northbound 75, also remaining in the clear at an eight minute drive between i-4 and bruce b downs boulevard. happy friday. it's getting down to it. >>charley: happy friday to t. what did you say? >>vanessa: it's getting down to it with your peps. >>charley: it's over. this is it.
