6:08 am
you carrying a bunch of cash. maybe arrangements to have someone there at your house if something is being delivered. whether it's a neighbor, family or friend, that way it's not sitting there for a long period of time. remember, yeah, it's black friday now. we just passed thanksgiving. a lot of people are shopping now but also come monday, cyber monday, a lot of people are going to be shopping. a lot of folks will have those items delivered to their homes. so b make arrangements, have someone or pick it up or do what jen and russell were talking about early this morning. have it delivered to the amazon lockers. that way it's always secure and never sitting around for someone to pick up. back to you. >>laura: all right. thank you. we'll check in with you in a little bit. >>russell: all right. and fox 13 has your black friday survival guide. for start times and deals, go to, look under

6:13 am
>>jim: it has been a very dry month. in fact, so far this month, we've only had .01 inch of rain. with no rain in the immediate
6:14 am
for the entire month. looks like as we get towards about wednesday, thursday of next week, we'll start to finally see that rain chance. we don't get any rain on wednesday, looks like we move into december to get some rain. it's a mild start this morning. 68 degrees outside. dew point is sitting at 62. humidity 81%. the winds very light, north-northeasterly wind currently at three miles an hour. a little cooler to our crystal river. low 50s, bartow at 57 degrees. lakeland, you're at 61. here in tampa, that's 68. downtown st. petersburg, 67. you work your way down to sarasota county, and you're at 68. bradenton sits at 65 degrees but we've had a warming trend over the past several days and we continue it again for today. in fact, you can see most areas running between about four, five, in some cases up to seven
6:15 am
time yesterday. so it's going to be another warm one for this afternoon and you start to notice a little bit of that humidity as well with the dew point climbing back up into the 60s. got a cold front back to our northwest. really doesn't mean a whole lot. these fronts that are working towards us, they're kind of running out of gas so we will eventually see them pushing through the area. it will kind of clear out the skies some over the weekend, maybe drop the temperature a few degrees. that's just about all we're you can see it's pretty quiet across most of the country. a little snow flurry activity across the northeast and then out across the pacific northwest in the mountains as well. there you see a few showers across michigan heading over to new york and once you get up to maine, you see a little snow in there and pretty cool temperatures across the northern tier states but really, a lot of cold air is staying locked up to the north as there's really nothing to push the cold air
6:16 am
through the next seven days. we're still talking about the tropics. very late in the season to be talking about this, but we still have what, almost a little over -- a little under a week left of the hurricane season. this made landfall across nicaragua yesterday with winds of 110 miles an hour. it's now moved out into the pacific, is now downgraded to a tropical storm but because it maintained that tropical intensity all the way across, it keeps the name even though it's moved the pacific. there's the latest coordinates on this one. winds right now are at 70 miles an hour. it will continue to work its way towards the west and eventually looks like it will dissipate as we get into the first part of next week. we're going to watch the fronts working their way across the state. just partly cloudy skies, warm afternoon for today with the daytime highs into the lower 80s but eventually here comes another cold front. that will clear the skies out, maybe bring a little bit cooler
6:17 am
so the forecast for today, not bad. partly cloudy skies. daytime high of 81 degrees. a little more humid as well. for tonight, scattered clouds, overnight low of 65. for tomorrow, a mix of sun and clouds, daytime high of 80 degrees. high tide at 12:11 this afternoon. extended marine forecast showing primarily that northerly wind and seas running two to three feet throughout the weekend. seven-day forecast, see the daytime highs in the upper 70s plenty of sun and we watch for maybe that slight chance of some showers as we get into the middle of next week. let's check on the morning commute. >>reporter: there is one accident reported along northbound 75. no reported delays here. traffic is getting by, up to speed. we do have reports that a left lane is blocked so do watch out for flashing lights on scene, but delay-free through the area. live look here at 275 looking to

6:45 am
winds flocked 110 miles an hour with a dangerous storm surge along the coast. thousands of them were ordered to evacuate homes along the caribbean coast. this woman says homes in her neighborhood are unsafe. she joined many others looking for fresh water, food and a safe place to sleep. it's a similar scene just to the north in nicaragua. storm predictors saying that otto will move and into the pacific. there's the possibility of flooding and mudslides. >>jim: we're watching otto. it's made its way into the pacific. winds of 110 miles an hour worked across central america, maintaining most of the
6:46 am
maintained that tropical storm or tropical characteristics, it does keep the name, even though it's moved from the atlantic basin into the pacific basin. here's the latest coordinates. still really far to the south. 10.8 degrees north, 86.2 degrees west. top winds at 70 miles an hour. it continues to work its way towards the west at 13 miles an hour. it will continue to somewhat maintain the intensity over the next, say, 24 to 48 hours but eventually as we get into the start to weaken and we'll say goodbye to otto well into the pacific. back closer to home, not bad. 68 degrees. the dew point continues to climb. that's why you step outside, starting to notice maybe a little more humid outside with that dew point of 62 making the humidity at 81%. a very light north-northeasterly wind at three miles an hour. 50s across the interior. bartow at 57 degrees.
6:47 am
cooler at 52 degrees but the 68 in tampa. downtown st. petersburg, 67 degrees. you head down into bradenton, 65 and sarasota checks in at 68 degrees. 50s up across the panhandle. pensacola, 61 degrees and very mild. once you get down across the southern tip of the state, down across the keys where marathon currently sits at 75 degrees, really all we're seeing are scattered clouds working their way across the state. northwest but really, these fronts aren't going to do a whole lot. we'll kind of push a couple of these through here, we clear out the skies and drop the temperature a couple of degrees over the weekend, maybe get rid of a little humidity. it's probably going to take yet another front which will eventually head toward the middle of next week, that one will give us a chance of a couple of showers and we could use it because so far this
6:48 am
of rain. this is the driest month of the year but it's been ridiculously dry so far this month. so we'll continue that warming trend again for today. eventually as the fronts come through, we clear out the skies and bring in drier air to start out next week. the forecast goes like this. for today, not bad but a little bit warmer outside. daytime high of 81 degrees. then for tonight, scattered clouds, overnight low of 65. for tomorrow, mix of sun and clouds. the rain forecast through the weekend showing primarily a north to a northeasterly wind and seas rubbing around two to three feet with the moderate chop on the bays and inland waters. seven-day forecast, 81 degrees for today and 70s through the weekend with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of a few showers with the cold front as we get into the middle of next week. let's check on the morning
