Weather wise, a passing shower is in the forecast with high temperatures reaching the mid 80s.

No. 1 – Miami Beach Police are hoping that a recently released sketch will help find a man wanted in an attempted sexual assault from this weekend. Police say the man broke into a woman's home and began assaulting her while she slept.

No. 2 – One person in South Carolina is waking up a billionaire after matching all six numbers in the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot from Tuesday night. There are 36 second prize tickets with four of those sold in Florida.

No. 3 – Utility workers in the panhandle say they're hoping to have nearly the entire region back on the power grid by early November after Hurricane Michael. Nearly two weeks after the storm made landfall, about 50,000 people remain in the dark.

No. 4 – The city of Miami Beach is holding a job fair for the homeless. The goal is to connect homeless people seeking work with employers who are ready to hire. It's happening at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens from 10am to 3pm in the Banyan Ballroom.

No. 5 – Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis and Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum will square off in their last debate for the midterms at Broward College in Davie at 7 pm.

No. 6 – It may not be Taco Tuesday, but you could soon earn a free taco. It's all part of a Taco Bell promotion during the World Series called "steal a base, steal a taco", and last night the Boston Red Sox stole second base against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The deal is good only on Thursday November 1st from 2 to 6 pm. Game Two of the World Series is tonight in Boston.
