6:34 am
socialize more this time of year. if any of those people have the flu that you're hugging and kissing and socializing with, there's a good possibility you could catch it. the answer is simple how to tip the odds in your favor, not to get the flu and that's to get a shot. experts are saying this is a really good time of year to get a flu shot because it's just the beginning of the flu season so it hasn't kicked into high gear yet. last year the height of the flu season was in early january. to go on and on forever. starts now and can go to march and sometimes all the way to may. the cdc recommends that everyone over six months of age get a flu shot, especially people in high risk groups such as pregnant women, the elderly and anyone with a chronic condition. they say it's better to get a shot than use a nasal spray that was popular at one point. the nasal expressway is not as effective as the flu shot itself. even if you get the flu shot,
6:35 am
they're talking between 40% and 60% effectiveness. if you get it, you're certainly tips the odds in your favor but that doesn't mean you're not going to get it. if you do get it, you know it's miserable to go through and it could be very dangerous. get this. up to 49,000 people in one year died from getting the flu. it's about $25, a little time out of your schedule but it is certainly worth making that effort, at least to avoid the that you all know about and certainly to prevent something like hospitalization or even worse than that. go do it now. >>laura: thank you. >>reporter: from dr. ken. see ya. >>russell: see you later. 6:35 right now. more than 2 1/2 million floridians expected to travel over 50 miles this week for thanksgiving. that's a 5% increase from last year. aaa urging drivers to get their

6:42 am
to go up. they're going to get back in the 50s and modified. once that happens, overnight lows are going to go up. so this is hopefully the last morning for the really chilly air and tomorrow will be somewhat chilly. how does that sound? that makes me hungry. i keep saying chilly. drier air not only at the surface but aloft. gorgeous sunrise, still 10, 15 minutes away from that but it will be pretty and we have the quick cooldown morning which will rebound immediately right back up, i think in the mid 70s for high temperatures for today. we're not going to change things much. going through thanksgiving, blue black friday, once we get into saturday, there's a front coming into the area. it's not a big front but it will cool us down for sunday into monday. now, there are some hints that next week, middle of next week, we may see some decent rain.
