7:18 am
@yesterday. @it 8 degrees colder in wesley @chapel and the cool temperatures @really mean we are going to see @a cool afternoon for today. @very pleasant weather as far as @humidity and lower humidity will @stick around for the next few @days and get a lot of clear @skies. @high pressure just kind of @meandering across the southeast @over the state means we will @continue to be see plenty of sun @through next week. @not until this high gets to the @east that we start to warm @temperatures up. @that will actually be tomorrow. @that high will shift on to the @east, and really have been quiet @weather across much of the @eastern half of the country, and @really in fact -- much of the @country is quiet right now as we @get to the rocky mountain that @we are seeing really any @weather. @we are seeing a few snow @flurries across west virginia @and western pennsylvania, person @new york as well. @and really most of the weather @is up into canada. @now watch futurecast.

7:43 am
@can be a killer to those who are @at high risk. @people at high risk are young @children, older adults, pregnant @ladies and those with other @complications that are going @along. @the most important thing is @getting your flu shot in early @in the season as literally @possible. @>> alcides: how serious is the @flu season this year. @>> reporter: always serious. @especially if you are in the @high risk category of category @and have the greater risk. @everybody can get the flu and @just something we have to try @prevent as much as possible. @>> alcides: it this string @lasting longer -- i don't @remember a three or four weeks @-- this whole newsroom 50% of @the people were sick. @it seems that everyone is @getting it and lasts longer. @a new strain or not really. @one we have seen before. @>> not really, but remember @every season is different and @every season has a different @strain that comes with it. @each strain acts a little bit @differently. @usually the flu lasts 3 to 7
