6:04 am
stopping, waiting, sending people off throughout the morning and it's really going in spurts so far. and we expect at least some flow of traffic to continue as we get into the daylight hours. this is actually terminal c and we're told that more travellers, passengers make their way through this terminal than any other in the airport. we spoke with a woman headed to washington state this morning and she had this advice for other >> the earlier, the better or te less ideal time, the better. just try to beat the traffic and get through security as smoothly as possible and bring a book for the flight. >>reporter: and the rule again is to plan ahead. here's another live look at terminal c. this is actually the southwest terminal and airport officials tell us about 35% of all airport passengers travel through this terminal so if you're going to

6:15 am
>>dave: it is 6:15. let's go back. since october 1, we've really only had an inch and a half of rain and our november deficit well over an inch. it is so dry out we may finish this month with no rainfall. there's a last chance of picking up a shower early next week but to be honest, even that chance is still kind of low. november 9 the last time we had any recorded rainfall. not that .01 inch is anything to write home about. we talked earlier about how different it feels this morning. it's still light jacket weather. it's 52 in new tampa. 50 in brandon.
6:16 am
one, st. petersburg at 61 degrees. here is where the big difference is. crystal river at 54 degrees this morning. close to 20 degrees warmer than it was yesterday at this time. dade city, wesley chapel, loned o lakes, lakewood ranch all in the lower 50s. upper 50s for bradenton, for sarasota and i got low to mid 50s for inland locations. just a magnificent start to the day and look at the difference. look at the difference in temperatures. 10 chapel to brandon, 20 degrees warmer in crystal river. eight degrees warmer in tampa. even though you need a light jacket now, 9:00, it's gone. you don't need it. dew points are up. that's helping a little more moisture in the atmosphere. all that's going to translate into are a few clouds. no rain. and temperatures this afternoon should be very similar to yesterday. we may have 77, 78 for a high temperature yesterday.
6:17 am
again for today. this front is going to do nothing for us so we're gust kind of sitting here, status quo, back to the upper 70s. you have a very disorganized looking hurricane. it's drifting toward costa rica and nicaragua. it's going to move through central america. very odd to have this type of track but especially as we're getting into last week, officially of hurricane season, but it is going to move over eastern pacific where it dies out sometimes over the weekend. so obviously not a bother to the lower 48 at all. highs today, we're going back to 78 degrees. sunrise at 6:58. tonight you're going to wake up even warmer, right? 63 in tampa versus the 58 we have now which is great because i know so many people, thousands and thousands of people are running the turkey trots tomorrow, right? mild to start things off.
6:18 am
if your home thermometer says 80, don't be surprised but just in general, it's going to be a very, very, very nice holiday. east winds shifting to the northwest at 10 knots. low tide is at 4:08 this morning so high tide right around 10:00. here's the next seven. only one rain chance for the rest of the month. 20% next tuesday and maybe a hint of a cooldown for saturday and sunday. i just think that's still all in all a very nice forecast. >>vanessa: it is. we have sky fox checking out a new injury crash in the middle of an intersection. it's at 22nd avenue north and 28th street north and while you can see it is right there on that intersection, most of the traffic concerns we're seeing are to the westbound direction. i believe that's definitely the area to avoid. they have some driers being detoured through a parking lot so if you feel you want to head that way, plan a few extra minutes.
6:19 am
watching other traffic patterns, not really seeing any other big concerns getting through other than it looks like there's going to be detours in the northbound direction, what we just saw a second ago. that's happening at 22nd and 28th street in the st. pete area. this is carrying over from earlier hours. a crash in the englewood part of sarasota county. northbound outside lane blocked. we have electrical lines down to >>laura: developing in detroit, a wayne state university police officer is recovering after he was shot in the head while on patrol. officials say that officer colin rose is out of surgery now but not totally out of the woods. meantime, a man considered a person of interest is in custody. shooting comes after a string of ambush style attacks targeting law enforcement across the

mother is grieving the loss of her daughter while she waits for her two other children to recover in the hospital following a bus crash. five students were killed in that crash. the driver, that's 24-year-old walker, is charged with five counts of vehicular homicide. police issued a warrant to remove the black box from the bus and they're also investigating whether alcohol may have >>laura: donald trump arrived at his resort for thanksgiving. trump's stay will bring road closures and heightened security. how nasa is giving astronauts a taste of home this thanksgiving and looks like the cast of a next hollywood blockbuster but it's not.

6:31 am
of the directions that were affected so plan extra time and please be careful as the cleanup continues here. live look here at 275 north end of the bridge. southbound lanes are heading away from us and all the tampa bound traffic is picking up. travel times should be good coming from pinellas heading to tampa side of the bridge. >>russell: a bad accident shut down a big portion of the brandon parkway. deputies say the driver of the car there's some heavy damage. one person inside of that car died. the roads are all back open now. >>laura: a common party trick nearly cost a 10-year-old boy his life. surveillance video shows this boy named josh playing with a balloon near a pool and minutes later it shows his parents frantically trying to breathe life in him. a combination of sucking helium and holding his breath likely

6:33 am
within a couple of minutes. no big deal, right? well, it was a big deal because there was another fire and then another fire so crews used a sledge hammer to actually break out the back concrete of that house and they realized the fire wasn't in the back patio. it was actually started behind the wall. meanwhile, the family was inside that house. they got out alive and they know how lucky they are this listen in. when we spoke to the father earlier this morning, they were telling us not only they lucky but his girlfriend, before that fire, she wasn't feeling well so she actually went to the hospital. thankfully she's okay but the good news here is that everyone is okay. clearly this could have been a lot worse. they think it was electrical fire as well. again, that started behind the wall. here is the thing. a neighbor called 911.
6:34 am
and actually told everyone inside that house, hey, get out because there's a fire in the back patio. you're going to hear from mark, the person inside the house who grabbed the baby and got out coming up in the 7:00 hour. back to you. >>russell: see you later. thank you. >>laura: florida forest service issued a fire danger warning as dry conditions fuelled wildfires throughout the state. >>russell: they're asking everyone to be early and avoid starting fires outdoors. counties with increased wildfire danger levels, in marked extreme. rest of tampa bay is high or very high and florida's official cause of wildfires, human carelessness with 20% caused by yard and trash burns. >>laura: turkeys are being shoved in ovens across america but two turkeys are getting good news.

6:37 am
astronauts. nasa is testing out food ideas for the crew of the owe ryan spacecraft. right now the menu consists of a variety of food bars. flavors like orange cranberry and barbecue nut. each one is about 700 calories. goal is to reduce weight while keeping the astronauts well fed. >>laura: better than the freeze dried alternative. a smash business in tampa but it wasn't the gold they were after. >>russell: and dave is watching the weather as well as weather that could cause travel problems up north and chipotle is under fire over how many calories are
6:38 am
6:39 am
6:40 am
>>dave: time now is 6:40. how is that for a beautiful start? now, every day has looked like this, but the difference today is that it's a lot warmer than it has been. we don't have the 30s out there.
6:41 am
everybody else in the 50s and you can see by the brookdale, bayshore camera, soon, 6:58 the official sunrise and it should be another stellar one as well. look at the difference. frost proof 56. sebring, you're at 58. granted, brooksville, you're at 49 degrees but that is almost 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. tampa at 58. st. petersburg at 61 and sarasota at 57. 15 degrees there you go. crystal river is 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. lakeland 13. i mean, wow. what a big, big difference. dew points are back up, a little closer to normal. we've scoured out the extremely dry air and we've gotten back into more of just a lovely, pleasant atmosphere. with that we may get one or two clouds mixing in with the beautiful sunshine today. and even though it's like 15
6:42 am
can't tack that onto the afternoon. the afternoon is literally going to be pretty similar with highs in the upper 70s but there are a lot of people, a lot of people travelling today. maybe a couple of issues, maybe around memphis where they have some rain coming down now. typically this isn't a big deal but as you go further toward the north and the rain mixes with snow, going to parts of michigan, especially the u.p., they're getting some snow. minneapolis with a little bit of snow and then as you go back out i know typically you go through the country to show you what's going on but it is a big travel day so i wanted to give you heads up on that. we have some snow around reno and the higher he will va -- elevations with rain down along the surface but i don't see anything that's so big, so impactful that you get a weather related cancelled flight but a couple of places might be slowed
6:43 am
weather. this front is not going to do much. the very first view is going to go to the north and just kind of whimper out. we're looking at great weather for today, for tomorrow and i'm thinking even by friday, we get this chance of touching 80 degrees. and then suddenly, this little front just kind of drops down and cools us off a bit for the weekend. when i say cools us off, meaning it just brings our highs back to the mid 70s so it will be like a five degree tpe be about it. but quiet and dry as we go all the way through this holiday weekend. we're going to go 78 today. mostly sunny, seasonable, with a gorgeous sunrise at 6:58 tonight overnight lows near 68 degrees. a few clouds, it will stay mild and for tomorrow, scattered clouds, a warm afternoon with a high temperature around 79 degrees. i'm telling you, boaters have been loving it. light chop, seas running a foot or two and water temperatures in
6:44 am
no rain to speak of, just that isolated 20% rain chance next tesday but that's about it. we'll go from 80 for a high on black friday to 76 for a high temperature on saturday. >>vanessa: thanks, dave. in the sarasota area, looks like we have some lane blocks reported westbound on university parkway following a crash at cattleman road. you want to plan some extra time or maybe even avoid that direction of university if that's along your route. moving around a little bit. let me step out of westbound university parkway. live look out the door, this is 75 in the area south of fowler avenue. looks like everything is truck ago long quite smoothly here. bruce b downs boulevard to i-4, only taking eight minutes. before we get to charley, we want to talk sports. nhl newest team has a team. vegas golden knights. the team's official name and
