sunshine. that's our high for the day, currently 71, again the cooler drier air not quite here yet in the tampa area, but it's showing up in some of the northern spots, 66 inverness, 75 in venice. there's the north/south comparison. as we look at dew points, that's a significant difference between 52-degree dew point reading, drier cooler air to say 67 degrees down here in north port or 71 in venice. that's the humidity south. you can also see it on the water vapor. it's very dry high above in the atmosphere south and north of the front, so not much difference, did generate a few showers over the gulf of mexico. if you look at the infrared satellite imagery, you can kind of make out where the front extend out here into the gulf of mexico, but clearly as we saw on max defender not too much happening in the rain department at the moment. ucf and the huskies are playing up in connecticut noon on saturday, 52 degrees, possible
