6:01 am
looking on the radar examine there were a couple of sprinkles near arcadia. they have just about worked offshore with the northeast wind and that flow working its way across the state from east to west. we may see a few more sprinkles during the afternoon. i know we had a few yesterday. just want to point that out. not a big deal. 69 degrees the current temperature in tampa. 71 in st. petersburg. our normal lows are like 63 so yeah, it's a seasonable morning which will turn into a seasonably warm afternoon with a mixture of clouds and sunshine and highs in the mid 80s. vanessa? >>vanessa: on the roadways, we've cleared out from any incidents we were seeing overnight. a smooth ride no matter where you're heading and which roads you're taking. this is a live look here, checking out 275 near gandy boulevard in pinellas county. super quiet there. northbound drivers, maybe heading towards the howard frankland bridge, once you get to the tampa side, head up to

6:04 am
this is why this has all happened. there's a tough game obviously the way they came from behind. we regrouped during the rain delay and this group never quits. so give our guys all the credit in the world. >>laura: the average ticket price for a game seven ticket in cleveland was $2,700, higher than any other baseball game. just a footnote in a series full of records, cubs are already the favorite for next game could impact the presidential election. >>russell: eight previous times there's been a game seven series in the same year as the presidential election. all eight times the american league won, the g.o.p. candidate won the election. if the national league had won the game, the democratic candidate ended up in the white house. >>laura: this year, since the cubs are in the national league, we'll see if that trend continues next week.

6:07 am
for students, the consequences are real. in fact, i want to take you right here. this is what happened at ridgewood high school here in new port richey. according to deputies, a 15-year-old student cold classmates not to come to student because he planned to shoot up the school. a staff member reportedly verified the threat and authorities arrested the teen. pasco county school support kurt browning issued a statement on the arrest saying, quote, it breaks my heart student's future is in jeopardy because he made a false threat to shoot up a school, especially after we widely publized the new terroristic threats law and pleaded with parents to talk about the serious consequences. i will take this opportunity to once again ask all parents to make it clear that it's not okay to joke about school shootings. such threats are not a laughing matter and near are their legal consequences. now, the new terroristic threat
6:08 am
it strengthens for making threats, including firearms. it's now a second degree felony to make a threat involving a school shooting. in this case, we're told the law actually allows for punishment up to 15 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. so despite a press conference, video appeals to parents, several efforts to get the word out to parents and s the consequences for violating that law, pasco county school officials say they're continuing to see cases just like the one we told you about this morning. we know just last month, middle school students at two separate schools were charged with felonies as well for making threatening -- posting threatening messages or making threatening messages towards teachers at their schools.

6:16 am
>>dave: top of thursday morning to you. this may look like yesterday's map because it is very similar and that's one thing is when we put ourselves into a weather pattern, oh, boy, are we consistent until that weather pattern and a couple of more days of this before it gets cooler and drier for the week. 63 in brooksville. ocala as well. mid 60s lakeland, wauchula and i mean right at the coast, you've got the temperatures in the very early this morning, we had a couple of sprinkles move across the state and they're now back out over the gulf. we may see a few more like we did yesterday afternoon. this is all in advance of our cold front which is back here to the northwest, moving through wichita and eventually as it slides southeastward, it's going to push some of this humidity south, bring in some drier air. now, it's not going to be one of
6:17 am
no. but we are going to take care of some of this humidity over the course of the next, say, 48 hours or so. okay? high pressure starts to move toward the south as we squeeze this front through the area. it's november. cold fronts in november don't typically give us a lot in the way of rainfall so nothing more than a couple of sprinkles the next couple of days but then yes, it will turn less humid this weekend. dew points, moderate dew points run 65, we're going to knock them back to upper 50s. okay? so manageable stuff. it's going to feel a little more refreshing but we're not going to get into a truly dry, dry, dry air mass that you would typically think of behind a front. now, also, folks, remember this. it's hurricane season still. we have one little area that we're watching very, very disorganized. it's only a 20% chance for development over the next five days and look where it is.
6:18 am
again, not going to bother anybody. i just want to point out to you that it is there in case it does develop into some type of a tub tropical storm or whatever. 85 with scattered clouds and warmth for today. sunrise is 7. 46 -- 7:43 # and tomorrow is going to be a lot like today. i think we may take temperatures down a couple of degrees to around 83 but we' until late on friday night, early on saturday morning. and you know what? you look at these numbers and they're fantastic. 80, 81 degrees and 82. lows in the lower 60s so regardless of humidity levels, i think you're looking at a stellar seven-day forecast. >>vanessa: i think you're right. we're checking out 75 which is pretty clear throughout the viewing area except for hillsborough county. overall no big concerns.
6:19 am
but as you head in the southbound direction, looks like we have one incident we're following and it's going to be around the big bend area. there's some debris reported and it's going to be blocking that center lane so make sure you've got your eyes pealed and use caution in the area. >>laura: thank you. we begin with a news alert out of afghanistan. nato is saying two u.s. service members have been killed. two others wounded fighting the taliban. they came under fire assisting afghan troops. nato has not released anyone involved but we'll keep you updated as soon as we learn more. >>russell: and two iowa police officers shot and killed in ambush style attacks. this morning the suspected gunman is in custody but the moeb -- motive is still a mystery. >>russell: two des moines, iowa police officers ambushed and killed in separate attacks early wednesday. >> i don't think he may ever have been aware there was a gunman next to him. >>russell: 29-year-old officer justin martin and 39-year-old
6:20 am
shot sitting in their police cars. investigators say 46-year-old scott michael greene carried out the attacks. police say greene surrendered wednesday, flagging down a state employee along a rural road. >> he flagged down an employee of the dnr, presented his i.d. to that employee and asked that that employee call 911. mr. greene was taken into custody without incident. >>reporter: little more than two week ago he was removed from a after allegedly displaying a confederate flag. president obama is among those paying tribute to the slain officers saying quote, they put on their uniforms to serve and protect and they were taken in shameless acts of violence. sergeant beminio is remembered as a husband and father. >> he goes by tony and he's been with us since 2005. >>reporter: officer martin just

6:31 am
now. they're working a crash that involves a semi truck and a second vehicle. this is about two miles east of state road 60's intersection with highway 630. and the good news is, this is not involving any serious injuries but we do hear that all lanes are blockedment just to give you an idea, the sheriff's office says this is near the indian lake estates area in lake wales. if you can avoid the area in the meantime, please do so. >>russell: you just that final out without getting goose bufrpz.pit took seven gam, 108 years but the cubs are the world series champions and the curse is broken. it took every member on that team to accomplish this incredible season but two of the standouts from the championship team have strong ties to tampa bay. >>laura: joe maddon and ben zobrist. he's a part of this town. it was part of the reason why we
6:32 am
you have to be happy for him. >>russell: oh, no doubt about that. you have to be happy for joe maddon, for ben zobrist as well, two very nice men and both still have ties to the tampa bay area. we know joe maddon does with the restaurant behind us in south tampa. i have to give you a look at what chicago looks like right now, though. you have dozens of people taking pictures outside field, there with the marquis and people still celebrating even right now. i have to tell you, a couple of hours ago, maybe two or three hours ago, tens of thousands of people were packed along the streets there at wrigley field. of course, celebrating a world series victory. one that has long been awaited for for a lot of cubs fans so they were celebrating in chicago. we're celebrating here in tampa bay as well. joe maddon has so many ties to the tampa bay area.
6:33 am
saw a pretty cool banner. big w there. a couple of fans posted that outside of his house. it has a picture of joe maddon there. you can see his beard, his dark glasses as well. typical chicago chant and it also talks about the 108-year curse on the chicago cub. curse of the billy goat. obviously that is over now and it is time to celebrate in chicago, fan or a ben zobrist fan. what a world series, too. it came down to game seven. the last inning, just about every game, too, was extremely close. one of the best world series i've ever seen and a big component in winning that game last night was a tampa bay ray, ben zobrist who was named the most valuable player. he was fresh off the world
6:34 am
city chiefs and landed in chicago. what a perfect fit. the top of the 10th inning, game seven of the world series facing two strikes, potential go ahead run on second base, ben zobrist, a double inside the third baseline giving the cubs the lead and eventually winning the world series. yeah. party time in chicago. so apparently, the chicago cubs also tweeted out a you know, blank such and such if they're not showing up to work today because obviously everyone was partying last night. so it was kind of an excused absence for whoefr needed it to show to their employer. you know, i just can't even imagine the excitement, 108 years in the making following chicago cubs win the world series. couldn't happen to a better ball
6:35 am
better manager and ben zobrist. so happy for those guys. back to you. >>russell: see you later. thanks. >>laura: fan goes by mike on twitter, got a cleveland indians champion tattoo. he said he was confident corey kluber could get the job done. no regrets, right? >>russell: world series is over but the nfl season continues. the bucs are hosting the at ray j. winston tries to bounce back from last week's loss to the rays. >> main focus is to mentally be ready for this game and go out there and fight. >>russell: this isn't just any game. this is color rush thursday. only one team will be wearing their bright colored uniforms. the bucs. that's because the falcons color rush uniforms are also red.
6:36 am
for john lynch. tonight he's being inducted in the ring of honor. ceremony is at half-time. lynch is the ninth person to receive that honor. nine time pro bowler played from 1993 to 2003 and helped them win that super bowl ring. >>russell: 6:36 right now. when the d.e.a. issues a warning to law enforcement about a drug they should not even touch, then you know it's bad. such is the case with something call chad, just this morning we had something break across the a.p. wire that u.s. officials have made more than 400 seizures of this drug in eight states since july. what is it? >> i saw that, too. it's a very strong, synthetic
6:37 am
toxic at miniscule amounts. >>russell: we read 50 times more potent than heroin, 10 times more powerful than morphine. >> it only takes a miniscule amount. >>russell: can we lose the graphics? >> a miniscule amount to become deadly. 10 milligrams can kill hundreds of people. only one gram can kill tens of thousands >>russell: we talk about fen fentanyl. this is way stronger even than fentanyl, right? >> it is. it's used legally as a tranquilizer for very large animals, elephants, buffalo, other large mammals. that's what it is designed for. >>russell: so we've got this drug. it's on the streets. why?
6:38 am
of profit. drug dealers are there to make a profit. heroin is expensive. carfentanyl is cheap. it's 50 times more potent than heroin. but what they will do is cut the heroin with the carfentanyl. you'll get the same effect and increase your profit. the problem is, people are ingesting and consuming they're taking it and overdoses skyrocketed, significantly increased the past three years. >>russell: ohio is one of the worst places. >> the northeast is being bombarded. you're right. and hopefully that's one of the eight states where they've cracked down. but very dangerous. we've seen it here in tampa. luckily not as prevalent as the northeastern states but once again, you have drug dealers who are not scientists who are now
6:39 am
extremely toxic cocktail. >>russell: it's being made in china and mexico, we understand. but here is what i want to bring up this morning. i think to me, to all of us when we heard about this. besides the fact it's just dangerous for users, it's dangerous for first responders, for law enforcement to come in contact with this stuff, right? >> and imagine if they touch it, if law enforcement comes in contact, if they inhale it, sniff it. our drug sff weeks ago, imagine if they sniff it, the deadly effects it could have. >>russell: like you said, not -- we don't have a big problem with it here yet, but you have to know if it's there, if it's in the northeast, if it's in ohio, it's going to be coming here, right? >> absolutely. you're talking about using something that's cheap, that you can put a miniscule amount and make it more profitable, it is coming and i just caution
6:40 am
came out this morning about the cases. i mean, they go as far as to call it a weapons grade chemical. when you read something like that, it's frightening, isn't it? >> think about that. think about it. 10 milligrams can kill hundreds of people. you know, one gram, imagine how small one gram is can kill thousands of people. you're talking about something that's extremely dangerous. this isn't just mr. law enforcement officer talking about, listen, let's be dramatic, it's another drug on the street that can hurt somebody. no. this is extremely toxic. i caution everyone out there. >>russell: important information we have out there today. i hope people are listening. thank you. good to see you. >> have a great rest of the week. >>laura: so disturbing, too, to think about the pictures and we've reported on a lot of them, this couple that passed out in the front of their car, kid in the back seat. it will be interesting to see if any of that has been cut as they
6:41 am
all right. it is 6:40 now. we're getting a little cold snap this weekend. dave will show us the temperatures up next. >>russell: and we're in for a treat this morning. walter taking us on a one tank trip live. did you like that? but his destination for now is a secret. i know. first some perspective on the cubs win. the last time the chicago won the world series, 108 years. okay. the periodic table of the it. hailey's comet appeared twice since the last time they won the series and the last time they won the world series, the wright brothers were debating if airplanes could ever fly from new york city to paris. amendment 1 is endorsed by florida's firefighters...
6:42 am
and unsafe solar installations. safe solar for the sunshine state. vote yes on amendment 1. for the sun. 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. to get things done, you've got to show up. you've got to work together. whether it's protecting social security and women's health care start solving problems instead of pointing fingers. i am patrick murphy and i approve this message
6:43 am
why are out-of-state billionaires attacking amendment 1? because amendment 1... stops. their. subsidies. with amendment 1, you don't pay for someone else's solar. to stop unfair subsidies, vote yes on amendment 1. every month.. someone on the good day crew takes you on a one >>russell: every month somebody on the "good day" crew takes you on a one tank trip.

here, fox 13, 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 we'll take you on a one tank trip and it will be like a quarter tank of goes. >>russell: food, music, ac. >>laura: close to the station. >>walter: ac. >>russell: all right. all right. we're working on it. we'll see you later. >>walter: see ya. >>laura: krispy kreme? >>dave: we'll find out. mid to upper 50s this morning. west chase, new i have brandon, plant city, all these spots about 65, 66 degrees. still 71 in st. petersburg. nice, mild start to the north. crystal river, inverness, brooksville, dade city, about 63, 64 degrees. a couple of spots sarasota and venice still above 70 at this hour and mid to upper 60s in polk, hardee, de soto and highlands county. now, you're looking again at the moderate humidity and it's been that way all week.
6:46 am
haven't had the dew points running above 70 degrees like we have over south florida for the past couple of weeks. so what's going to happen when this front actually comes through? i can tell you a few days ago, it looked like dew points were dropping in the 40s and it was going to be like this massively dry air mass. i don't think it's going to happen now. but watch the very end of this loop and we're going to loop it all the way through until the front is about to make its way through late friday and early into saturday and you'll start upper 50s. you see this saturday morning at 6:00. dew points in the upper 50s and lower 60s for everybody else. so we're going to slide them back to the upper 50s. lovely, lovely air mass. but not necessarily as dry as, say, last time around. so it's going to be a beautiful day. we do have just this tiny little bit of moisture, just a few
6:47 am
like yesterday, that may spark one or two tiny little showers and/or sprinkles. they're not going to be a big deal so i was driving yesterday. i think i got sprinkles for 10 seconds so that kind of deal working across the state again but in general, we'll have enough sunshine to warm things back up and we will make it back in the mid 80s for today. our normal high is around 81 and we're going to squeeze out, i'm thinking, another 85 degrees. tomorrow will be pretty highs around 83. then your front comes through and it starts to get less humid this weekend and really, it's going to be a gorgeous weekend. dew point is 55, 58 or even 60, it's still going to be a great weekend. 85 degrees for your high temperature today with a sunrise at 7:43 so at least we're less than an hour now from the sunrise. when i get in, it's like four or five hours before the sunrise. mostly clear, 68 tonight.
6:48 am
sunny skies. what i'm thinking for the weekend is we'll knock temperatures back down to normal or slightly below normal but the dew points also drop so it will be breezy, drier, nice. we're turning the clocks back saturday night to sunday morning so all in all, really a stellar weekend forecast. >>vanessa: looks like it. all right. thank you. it's 6:48. as we check on the roadways, enter statsz -- interstates are typical slowdowns on some of them. up to the moderate congestion range at 13 minutes between fowler and the leroy expressway. lake wales area, we do have a full shutdown on state road 60. sheriff's office says they're working a semi truck and vehicle crash two miles east of 630 so that's a little ways east of the indian lake estates area. if you're familiar with the
