7:15 am
outside. that humidity at 69%, and winds are currently out of the north-northeast at 6 miles per hour. had some 40s to our north, and still at crystal river 48 degrees and brooksville up to 54 right now. st. petersburg is a little more mild at 62 with the water surrounding downtown st. petersburg, which by the way, the gulf temperatures currently at 69 degrees. clearwater has a 59. you head into bradenton 57 degrees, lakeland is sixty what a change this cold front has made. fronts to our south, and we're running 5, 7, 8, 10, and in some cases 13 degrees colder compared to this time yesterday. that's a nice cold front that moved through. really mainly just drying out the atmosphere. since we're much drier, we cool the temperatures quickly and warm them quickly. that's why we head up into the upper 70s for today. just a little bit cooler than
7:16 am
dew points mainly run in the 40s. some 50s along the coastline, and that will give us the comfortable, crisp feel to the air as we go through the morning heading into the afternoon. there's a cold front now down to the south. that continues to push away clearing out the skies. you see the beginning of the loop right here. a few scattered clouds in here and those move out. we have plenty of sun for today into tomorrow. we start to see a few more clouds and the clouds gradually return because the high pressure is back i clouds are just racing across the country as we have yet another cold front which will work into the southeast as we head through the next day or so. now, across the northeast do have some much cooler temperatures and you see some snowfall across portions of new york into maine. the front that will continue to work to the south, and high pressure moves on to the east. here's the next front bringing strong storms across the southeast. then it kind of runs out of gas
7:17 am
here comes the area of low pressure that will help to kick this all through here as we head towards the middle of the week. so the forecast for today looks good. mainly sunny skies and daytime high is 78 degrees. for tonight clear skies, overnight low of 63 and another nice-looking day for tomorrow. scattered clouds and a touch warmer but still low humidity. daytime high of 80 degrees. on the water winds are out of the northeast at 10 knots and seas 2 to 3 feet and moderate chop on the bay. high tide at 1:50 this seven-day forecast keeping these temperatures running in the 70s over the next day or so. then we slowly warm things up and we get that rain chance working in, about 40% into thursday. a great day for today, and plenty of sun over raymond james. kickoff at 4:05. 77 degrees but once the sun goes down it feels a bit cooler.

7:19 am
what makes this bulls offense so good is quinten flowers. he can hurt teams with his arm, but he's more into it with his legs. he goes 62 yards for a 31-14 lead. flowers adds another touchdown run in the fourth quarter. how is this for balance? flowers had 152 yards here and another 152 yards on the ground. the bulls put up 5:03 on ucf and win for the first time they finished the regular season with an impressive ten-win year. willie taggart couldn't be more proud of his team. >> i appreciate you underclassmen for buying into what we're doing and helping to shape the culture at south florida. we have something special because of you guys because you believe. believe and want to do something different and we're different. with that said, we have ten wins

7:26 am
>> reporter: the computers screens outside the windows are so realistic, it's hard to believe you're not cruising past mount rainier. >> we're coming up on 500 feet. look at the instruments. >> reporter: or you're not suddenly making a night landing in seattle in heavy fog. >> you're doing good. thrust reversers. just landed out of a cat 3 approach. >> reporter: in earlier days pilots that cam had at that kwul fie on a passengers jet flying one with no one on board burns jet fuel to get practice time. these are so realistic a new trainee can get up to speed without burning a drop of jet fuel. nervous passengers might be nervous about flying with a pilot on a video game. this enhances safety. southwest can train crews to

the florida >> alcides: welcome back. the time is 7:45. the florida highway patrol is investigating a deadly crash involving a tow truck driver. it happened at around 1:30 this morning on i-275 near the fowler avenue exit. i-275 southbound is open again. the tow truck driver was hit and it's unclear what caused the crash, and we follow the dwoming story throughout "good day tampa bay." 16 years ago elian gonzalez and his mother sought refuge from cuba. their both capsized and his mother drown and elian was the center of an international custody dispute. he was returned to cuba and grew up with his father. yesterday he told reporters fidel castro was like a father

7:46 am
is. if it came down in preese, so you kind of already have reserved your item, and then you hit refresh and be ready to check out. this is all about speed on cyber monday. >> you don't want to waste time saying what do i want? it's really strategy. knowing what you need and sthoping at the right time. >> yes. >> it's also, you know, though you're ordering online and not going into a store, so shipping can add up if there isn't a free option? >> right. a lot of times there's a actually know -- well, one surprise is you can choose ship to store and get it free every time. you already have the items in your cart and ready to check out. it's $15 to $50 in shipping depending on how heavy it is. one really good thing to buy on cyber monday are those fire pits, and they're really -- >> they're heavy, you know. that's a big item that you pay a lot of shipping. so ship it to the story and get shipping for free.
7:47 am
money, my friend. you say compare before you buy, too? >> yeah. just like black friday compare prices and you know what you're doing. use google shopping where you type it in and it tell mes you the different prices at stores. knowing ahead of time what you already -- you basically see all ads and everything for black friday, so knowing hey, i want to get a fire pit. i only want to spend less than 50 bucks because that's the price for the fire pit, and then ready. >> you have to fill up that cart and keep it waiting and click, click ready to go. what about restocking fees? how does that affects. >> these make me really mad. you buy an item and it's a gift and you give it to someone and you say i already have this. they have to pay to give it back to the store. it's frustrating. you have to look at the fine print before you check out. most of the stores do have it right on the actual item, and it will say, hey, this is going -- don't open it.
7:48 am
plastic if you know you don't keep it. they charge up to 20% of a restocking fee. one really good thing to do is today on sunday before monday happens, if you know where you shop, set up an account and have it ahead of time and load your shipping information, your credit card information. it's all secure anyway. that way you don't waste time going in when you go to hit refresh. >> you say don't waste time. it's because it's counting down the timed out sales? monday or things sell out. >> that's the biggest problem, is the things sell out. you missed out. they only had a limited quantity, and you left it in your cart. it happened to me several times where i miss out. i think i have to waste more time picking an alternate item. so frustrating. >> good advice. thank you so much. >> u that. thank you. now your skytower radar
