A rainy commute

A rainy commute

After yesterday's rain showers, we know most of you commuters were wishing to just stay home today to avoid the same low visibility, wet roads, and parking lot puddles that came along with the much-need rain, as shown in the above photo, taken northbound on the bridge around 6:00 p.m. on Monday.

Luckily, 10 News meteorologist Bobby Deskins just reported that rain chances are down from 100% yesterday to only 40% today, Tuesday March 29, so you may just have better luck if you're a Skyway commuter.

Researchers to study cold weather and local citrus crops

Researchers to study cold weather and local citrus crops

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) -- Federal officials will conduct a special survey to determine how this season's cold weather has affected Florida's citrus crop.

According to a news release from the United States Department of Agriculture, researchers will cut oranges and grapefruit to record the extent of freeze damage. They will also assess leaf damage and administer maturity tests to determine internal juice quality from groves throughout the citrus growing region.

The survey is scheduled for release Jan. 18.

The citrus industry in Florida generates some $9.3 billion in economic activity.
