6:37 am
pwith the elevator which is a art that creates the lift on pthe aircraft got stuck in the pupward position. pthe f.a.a.'s investigation prevealed improper maintenance pcaused that issue but the agency psays it has satisfied the same pissues from happening again. pthursday's flight had dozens of assengers on board. pit was leaving from st. pete pclearwater to kansas city. pallegiant said that the plane pinvolved in thursday's emergency pwill be inspected. pallegiant flies about 95% of the assengers here at the airport pand it's responsible for the precord 1.6 million passengers plast year. p but the airline has experienced pa series of highly publicized roblems. pin one month last year, the pairlines made two emergency plandings, one on june 17 for the pairline called a ressurizization issue and panother on june 8, a flight made pan emergency landing eight pminutes after taking off after

6:39 am
6:41 am
phow it's
6:42 am
pwe're starting to see slow ptraffic heading southbound, pexpect delays from fletcher, preally down to hillsborough pavenue. pgive yourself 12 minutes from pbearss avenue to i-4. inellas county, a slowdown east plake at furloch road, a little psouth of keystone. pthis wreck has reportedly been pmoved off to the side but still pcausing a minor delay through pthe area. prailroad crossing repairs, peastbound state road 60 at pchestnut street in between pharrison avenue and myrtle pavenue. pthose detours in place through psaturday. p>>dave: 6:42 here. pwhat a difference in ptemperatures. pthis is absolutely a result of pthe warmer waters in the gulf pand then onshore wind helping pthings out a little bit. pnew port richey is 56. p59 degrees in st. petersburg. p54 in tampa. pthen you go inland and it's pchilly stuff. pin fact, look at bartow's ptemperature at 41. pmost of us, especially way from
6:43 am
pall going to be tomorrow morning pso we do have cooler, drier air psettling in. plow to mid 40s along i-10. pwarmest we got is down over the pkeys and it's a little cooler pthan yesterday in central pflorida. psix to nine degrees cooler poverall. ponce you look at this map, this pis our dew point map that pmeasures the amount of surface pmoisture. pdew points in the summertime are pin the 70s, right? pmuggy stuff. pwe drop below 50 and it gets pvery comfortable, very pleasant poutside. pthey're 46 now. pit gets real dry and i mean bone pdry. pdew points running 30. pthat's what we have in ptallahassee. pthe reason i point this out is pbecause this is the type of pdrier air that is headed psoutheastward so during the day ptoday, we're going to continue pto get a push of somewhat pcooler, somewhat drier air on ptop of our already dry air mass. pwe're drying it out even further
6:44 am
pthis little band of clouds pthat's moving through right now, pbehind it the winds are going to ick up out of the northwest. pit will be breezy and it's going pto drag that drier air that we phave up in the northern part of pour state down right through. pyou may feel a little bit of a pdifference. pit's going to be hardly pnoticeable. pagain, just a few clouds. p but the net result will be that peven if you're starting in the pmid 50s or starting in the lower p40s, your high temps today are ponly going to make it back to pthe lower 60s and then when the psun goes down tonight, it's a pdramatic drop in temperatures ptomorrow. pi'll tell you one thing, though. pit's going to be a pretty pweekend. pit's going to be a beautiful pweekend, a cool one, especially pwith high pressure just panchoring itself on top of us pand what that will do is give us pthe quite chilly mornings, yet pmoderating temperatures during pthe afternoon. pso while we get lower 60s today, pwe may actually flirt with 70 by
6:45 am
pour next chance of rain actually pyou can see it here, doesn't pcome through until likely pwednesday time frame and right pnow, a lot of energy from that pwednesday storm system is going pto be much further north and -- pthan even the last one and that pwill lower the chance of strong pstorms. pi'm talking about something pthat's five, six, seven days paway. pwait until we get closer. pmostly sunny skies, we'll go 62 pfor a high temperature today. pbreezy, kind of cool. pdon't forget that sunrise in pjust a few minutes. pi do love when the sun comes up pbefore 7:00 in the morning. pit's always short lived. pwe turn the clocks forward in a pfew weeks and that puts it right pback to near 8:00 again. p42 tonight. pthat's going to be in the tampa parea. pas you go east, you go north, pyou're likely to get temps back pin the 30s. pwhile that may generate a little pfrost, we're not expecting any pwidespread freezes or anything plike that so that's good.
