bugs to restore the galaxy. >> i'm lindsey l ogue. let's head over to bill logan with the most accurate forecast. may the force be with you. >> it was with us yesterday until later in the afternoon when we got the force of some storms coming in. looks like that's going to be much the same today. absolutely clear right now on titan doppler radar. we'll widen the shot out, go back 12 how those storms built up. and then kind of pulled in toward the middle of the state. we did have decent showers in through hillsborough and polk county last night. right now like i said we are dry. 79 for tampa, 80 for clear water and st. petersburg. winds right now pretty much out of the east and northeast. we'll watch those winds shift later on this afternoon as we
6:02 am
91 degrees. looks like we'll got more rain in the forecast into the workweek, even more than those scattered afternoon showers we're expecting today. i'll explain about that when we come back with the action weather forecast in less than 15 minutes or so. lindsey. . new this morning, terrifying moments at a minnesota mall. police say a man wearing a private security company uniform stabbed eight people at a busy shopping center in st. cloud. an off-duty officer who was at the mall shot and attacker. police say the suspect made a reference to allah and asked if at least one victim was muslim. all of the victims are expected to survive. dozens of other environmentalists rallying here in tampa this weekend to spread awareness about two controversial pipeline projects. take a listen. >> what do we want? >> justice. >> when do we want it. >> now >> nearly 100 people out marching, chanting, holding
6:03 am
temple terrace yesterday. they were showing support for the people of standing rock, an area in north dakota where a massive pipeline is under construction. this week president obama ordered work to stop as a result of growing concerns about the disruption to native american lands. many fear the project is going to continue harming natural resources like water. >> it's been a long time coming bringing this much publicity to the efforts it down. now that president obama is reacting to our cries, he can really make a positive impact for our future and prevent this from happening. >> they were also speaking out against the sable trail pipeline which would run through florida. in polk county, mosaic property crews are cleaning up
6:04 am
morning. it's been leaking into an underground aquaphor in mulberry. and despite the cleanup many people who live in this area, they are still skeptical about their safety. on saturday people in mulberry took to the streets to make sure their voices and signs were noticed. they don't believe that crews have done enough to make sure that their water is safe to drink. right now there are pipes that are sucking radioactive water out >> this is something that could really affect this community, and i don't think any of us have any idea of the ramifications. >> mosaic is offering water quality testing to people for free. if you're interested we have that information on crews in gibsonton keeping an eye on a fertilizer plant after a barrier wall caught on
6:05 am
but we do know nobody was hurt. a polk county school employee accused of stealing from a co-worker. both worked at the learning services building. check out this video, deputies say it shows 47-year-old fontello jobahan rifling through her co-workers desk, taking out her purse and stealing money. the victim decided to set up surveillance on her work laptop after purse disappear twice this month. deputies have now arrested jobahan for grand theft. new information this morning after a huge explosion left 29 people hurt in new york city. authorities are now calling it an intentional act. but city mayor bill de blasio say there's no evidence of a terrorist attack. police believe the blast may have been caused by an explosive device in or near a
6:06 am
second device a few blocks from that initial explosion site. they say it appears to be a pressure cooker with wires and duct tape. we'll keep you updated as this story develops. this explosion in new york comes hours after a pipe bomb exploded in new jersey where thousands of runners were participating in a charity race benefiting the united states marines. runners were not in the area at the time of the blast. that's because of a start delay. investigators say if the 5k had started on time there would have been injuries. >> it's obvious it was meant to affect the run, the fact that it went off at 9:35. the race was canceled after the explosion. we know the device was set off with a timer but authorities have said nothing else. in jacksonville we're learning a father and son are both seriously hurt after shooting each other. officers say they found one person shot in the yard, the other shot inside the house. neighbors in the area say they
6:07 am

6:13 am

6:14 am
cheesy things, it is nice to hear people say that they're working in a field that they're motivated to be in. >> doing something they love. >> it's not work if it's something you enjoy. >> it's not going to work, it's going to fun. >> don't say that to the alarm clock. >> sleep, what's sleep bill. >> still early if you're up with us and looking out at the river gate tower cam right now. maybe you're grabbing that second cup of ready for a great day. it's a lot like we had yesterday. looks like there's some sort of police activity down there by the old pirate ship. hope there's not some plundering going on. that would be out of the ordinary. all right, we're still about an hour away from the official sunrise, but it's going to be another gorgeous one because we get basically a replay of saturday, so more late day storms. some could be heavy, and we're
6:15 am
tropics, even though there's nothing really that much more to talk about. okay. there's julia still sort of sitting and spinning off the carolina coast, not doing much. carl looks like it will strengthen into a hurricane by thursday as it continues to make that curve up into the open waters of the atlantic, and this one which doesn't even have a name or number yet, still an invest doesn't look like it's going to get much more jackie sparrow gave us a really good look at some clouds organizing right around sunset on saturday. this is about the time we did have pretty good storms pulling through, and you can see them here as we back up our satellite and radar composite, 12 hours as they storms bloom up and pull back across toward the coast later on in the evening. right now the temperatures are started off mild, a little bit on the warm side. we still will probably drop another degree or two.
6:16 am
st. petersburg, 78 right now in new port richey, bradenton, sarasota, and then 77 just kind of fanned out all across the central sections from zephyrhills down to arcadia, or if we want to say a to z, arcadia through zephyrhills. lakeland's got 75 degrees. the dew point there 75, so we may see a little bit of haze and low lying fog because that dew point depression is down to zero, so we could see those clouds forming level. we'll see them forming right along the sea breeze boundaries by about 2:00 this afternoon, and then we'll watch as those showers sort of pull inland and combine by about 6:00 right down the center of the state, some pretty good boomers and some of those could produce maybe even some hail, along with strong winds. same thing sets up on monday but a little bit more moisture means that we get better coverage and those storms last a little longer into the
6:17 am
your sunday. a muggy start, calm wind, sun and clouds and warming give way to those inland storms as we hit the high of 91 degrees. 86 degrees is your gulf water temperature off of clearwater beach. seasonal average 1 to 2 feet, should be another great day for boating with winds going east in the afternoon after starting off out of the west. excuse me, out of the east. 4:07's your high tide. sun's up like i said just about an hour from right here's a look at florida's most accurate seven-day forecast. 40% chance of showers today. then we'll ramp that up to 50 to 60% chance of rain monday, tuesday, wednesday. we'll try and get back to more normal situations by the weekend. of course we'll keep you updated on the tropics as well constantly through the weekend. now for a look at your morning sports including that
6:18 am
performance. here's john sable. good morning, thanks for stopping by, tough test in the desert for the buccaneers. they take on the cardinals at 4:05. arizona will come out aggressive, especially on the defensive side of the football. expect the cardinals to put a lot of pressure on jameis winston, something he didn't see against atlanta. >> i think they'll try to heat jameis up a bit. that's worked for arizona in the past. ho pressure can work in two ways. it can be big for them and it can also be big for us. >> five teams ranked in the top 25 already lost a game, and it all started back in week 1. yesterday the highest ranked team was the latest to fall, no. 2 florida state. while many predicted the northeast to lose, nobody thought it would be by 33
6:19 am
injuries exposed that problem. look at the up tempo offense by the cardinals confusing florida state all first quarter. cardinals going on more jackson keeps himself, goes to the outside and lays a short into a defender and scores. florida state looking to cut that lead, deandre francois connects with a touchdown. 14-10 louisville. francois 7 of 18 for 101 yards. jackson outplayed the touchdown throw here in the 2nd. then he shows off his speed, 35- 10 louisville. cardinals shock the seminoles a blowout win yesterday. 5 total touchdowns and more than 350 yards of totals on in the cardinals dominates win over the second ranked seminoles. >> second half we never did get the momentum. we couldn't ever change it. you play with fire when you let
6:20 am
right there in the middle. it was the middle of the 2nd quarter on. hopefully we'll learn. got to create better habits. >> how rare was this blowout. well, it's the third worse loss by a team ranked in the top 2 in the history of the ap bowl. it's not the worst loss from a top 2 team. that honor belongs to army set back in 1945. next up for the seminoles next week at raymond james stadium. the bulls yesterday up north in syracuse. the bulls entered the afternoon undefeated in the carrier dome. last win came in 2011 but the bulls found themselves in a 17- 0 hole early but rodney adams brings them back. 20-17 lead, usf, 4 minutes later bulls run the exact same play except this time it's on the right side and it works
6:21 am
leaps over the sideline for the usf touchdown, bulls win 25-20 all after trailing 17-0. gators hosting the mean green of north texas, a rare 5- 0 lead. but florida changes that. that's jordan cronkite, finds the open space, 12-0 gators. it's 19-0 now. scary moment for the orange and blue, third quarter luke del rio gets hit low on his left knee. he left the game but was able it doesn't look like he's going to play next week. jordan scarlet adds the exclamation point in the win with this score in the 4th gate. gators win32-0 over north texas. how about miami on the road at appalachian state and like the fsu louis game this wasn't close. mark walton ran for two scores and a buck 30 on the ground. this was the first play for
6:22 am
yards to the house. the u dismantles app state 45- 10. the hurricanes are 3 and 0 on the young season. let's head to the diamond, rays and orioles, ricky shaeffer up in the 6 with the game tied at 2. shaeffer gives the ball a ride deep to center over the head of adam jones and off the wall. brad miller scores, rays take a 3-2 lead and they go on to win 5-2. tampa bay has now won six of their last eight season strong. rays will go for the series win this afternoon at 1:30. that's your morning sports

6:50 am
to feel a lot more like a summer day, the kind of day we get those storms blooming across the middle of the state and then pulling back towards the coast. that's what we had yesterday. that's what we're looking at again for today. 78 for sarasota, 75 in lakeland and bartow and brooksville to start us off. it's 77 in winter haven and brandon, tampa has 79 degrees, 80s currently in st. pete and clear water, 75 at mac dill. here's a look at your rapid refresh model. this is a really good indication of the most recent forecast model runs, watching about 2:00 as we start to see some of those showers bloom and then gradually they will build up and shift inland toward the east coast. do you see anything along the beaches. no, not at all. everything is inland, so it looks like today is going to be a good beach day.
6:51 am
center of the state looking for a high of 88 in seminole. 90 in hernando. we'll top out at 92 for apollo beach. 91 for zephyrhills and bartow, also tampa. here's a look at florida's most accurate day planner showing that we could see some of those storms begin to pop right through hillsborough county. by noontime, then they will shift inland, and again, this is only coverage so not a washout by any means, but if you do get stuck under one of these storms you could get pretty good rainfall amounts, maybe up to and including an inch. along the coast, very slim showers chances as we hit a high of 87 to 88 degrees. don't forget that uv index still in the extreme category at a 10. we'll bump the moisture up on monday and tuesday and
6:52 am
