rain. we'll deal with the cloud canopy here over the afternoon and then tonight will not be as chilly, in fact, this afternoon, looking at some low 70s, and then for the early evening hours, temperatures dipping down into the 60s and here you are into monday afternoon and notice south of polk county into highlands and hardy counties, that is the area where we can see scattered afternoon showers around sebring. really not much rain going on over the next couple of days. today, the filtered sunshine, we'll see the temperatures along the coast in the upper 60s. mid-70's over the interior and the trend for tonight will be milder temperatures, notice, not as cold as what we're seeing outside. 62 for your low. still warmer over the days to come. upper 70s here, but i do think tomorrow into tuesday, some of the best days of weather this week. wednesday it will be cloudy and certainly thursday, windy and wet, and certainly friday we'll see the temperatures drop off through the days.
needed rest from the grind of the regular season. because the world is a cruel and unforgiving place. those who do their jobs best don't get time off. steven stamkos and ben bishop i'm sorry about your luck. the tandem represented the lightning in nashville. both competing in the skills competition. stammer having a hard time. he eventually got it together. bishop as accurate f00 feet away. check out the big fellow in the goalie goals portion. sticking a couple in the opposite net before dylan larkin comes by to lend a hand, if these two teams meet in the playoffs, this conversation will be different. first try, 98.5. pretty impressive. next attempt, 103.9. that is really, really good. but his top mark only stands for a matter of seconds because the next shooter is shea weber.
crack was 105.3 and then how about this, 108.1 miles an hour. that is fast. weber wins hardest shot for the second straight year. stamkos technically finished second. but not in his mind. >> shy will win every year regardless. so you see his mechanics and the size of him. it doesn't surprise us anymore how hard he shoots this thing. >> nothing to be embarrassed about. florida hosting nine ranked west virginia. first time these two have met since 2003 doesn't mean they like each other. perhaps the pregame shenanigans inspired smith. that is deep like an adele song. florida up 15 at halftime. early second. chris giaza to ebudu who put the mountaineers in the dunk tank. they never trail over west virginia, 88 to 716789 florida
close one until midway through the second half when the nols blow it open. beasley. nothing accidental about the oops. 16 points on the day but as any breakfast food will say. nothing is better than bacon. finally, the senior bowl. last chance to shine for college football's top prospects before next month's nfl combine. aaron greed is showing shade at the defense. the tcu running back, 23 yards untouched for a touchdown. the south's defense is standing fall. virginia tech daddy nicholas says who is your daddy. right into the arms of baylor shawn oak man. south goes on to win it. that is it for sports. i'm paul ryan. coming up, gas costs just 99 crepts at one of tampa bay's gas stations. we'll tell you where and who is
thanks for joining us this sunday. it is time to check in with meteorologist mark collins with more on what we can expect weather wise. >> looking pretty good here. we're dealing with the cool temperatures but the trend will be for warmer weather over the next couple of days and certainly as we head into the afternoon. but as we look outside. we have clouds, you can see the clouds looking out over the gulf of mexico and clear water beach. no rain out of the clouds but it will be a fairly, mostly cloudy day with these clouds streaming in. so emoji sleepy after all of the festivities at gasparilla yesterday. but as we head through the day, we'll wake up, the sunshine will invigorate us and we'll see a boost in the numbers this afternoon shooting for 73 today and as we head into tonight, not as cold. the trend though will be for some upper 70s as we head through the work week and even some rain comes back into the forecast but today, set yourselves in for dry weather
middle of the week, showers, possibly thunderstorms as you'll hear in the extended forecast later in the show. i'll see you then. >> thank you. we're following breaking news at this hour, a man is under arrest this morning for allegedly killing a motorcyclist while driving the wrong way in pinellas county. kenneth kabrill is accused of going northbound in the southbound lanes of county road 19:30 saturday night. he hit a motorcyclist head on in dunn eden he is charged with dui manslaughter. our other top stories, a family police officer continues to recover after he crashed his car during a police pursuit saturday. he spotted three men in a car stolen in a carjacking. police tell us the men are suspected in three robberies. the men took off after that chase and remain on the run this morning. the clock is ticking in iowa tomorrow is caucus day and presidential candidates are pounding the pavement to get more support.

gasparilla madness and bay shore is right next to the water and that is especially concerning to environmentalists because a lot of the trash that the thousands of pirates leave behind can get into the water and that is concerning for marine and aquatic life. gasparilla is certainly a fun and exciting time to be in tampa but the hundreds of thousands of pirate invaders don't always clean up after themselves. folks from the florida a care yum keep tampa bay beautiful -- beautiful. this morning. they'll be given a designated area of bay shore boulevard to clean up and this effort is especially important to the florida aquarium since bay shore is located so close to the water and all of that mess can harm marine life and even though the official clean up starts at 9:00 a.m. in the morning, we've collecting beads.
