like that out. there that's scary. >> but a dolphin, huh? that's pretty crazy. also pretty crazy that we might have some active tropics coming up, huh? >> we've got a lot going on. where she a cold front that's going to arrive on thursday late into friday. a little cooler and drier in the morning and then the tropics are going to be a big conversation. maybe as long as the next two weeks that there will be a lot of talk. you're going to get sick of hearing the name matthew, i'm telling you. looking out, this is from the causeway, just a beautiful sunset. thank you very titan doppler radar, there it is all quiet for the time being. although that last night there were heavy rains along the coast about 2:00 to 3:00 a.m. that we would not be surprised if you see a few more of those showers. westerly wind, that usually means the heaviest storms are off to the central and eastern side of the state. by later on in the afternoon and into the evening. same thing for tomorrow. and for that matter same thing on thursday as well out ahead of the front. temperatures right now, you
plant city tampa, actually the hot spot as is st. pete at 80 degrees. we will hit 90 today, 89 in brooksville. 91 in winter haven. so outside right now, tampa at 80 degrees under partly cloudy skies. clearwater 78. st. pete skies are clear and also checking in at 80. so there is the satellite. as i said the last couple of days with the westerly wind now in the middle of july usually that means morning showers. then ber you don't always see that, but we've got some energy out ahead of the front that's coming in. so there is enough moisture and stability for showers and heavier thunderstorms where tonight most of that action was over in highlands and hardy county. overnight partly cloudy skies as you'll notice just a handful of showers along the coast. if you live anywhere from say hudson, down to maybe st. pete over to clearwater, you could hear a little bit of rain on
it could happen again overnight tonight. but otherwise the overwhelming majority of our area will be quiet, die, and clear come wake -- quiet, dry, and clear come wake up time. you'll see some showers over by the beach, then things will move inland. over on in the evening they're off to the east coast. now thursday we talked about this yesterday. there is a front that is going to be coming in. it stalls out right on top of central florida. so if you live in citrus or hernando or pasco, you're going to s s come saturday morning. if you live south of i-4, not this go around that it looks like we've got another front down the road that you'll hope for as they will not bring you any cooler air. showing you the long range in zero because they will try to bring some heavy rain over to the southeast side of the state. now, the reason that it is doing it, it's this. that there are going to be so many changes with this over the the next 10 to 14 days that it will probably make your head spin. but this is the way that it is playing out right now.
developing. it's going to develop. this will become matthew and move into the caribbean. now for the next two to three days it is probably going to take a lot of attacks together. i'm not so sure that it will develop at all. but once they hit right there with a lot of warm water and potential for some pretty quick development. now, where is it going to go? boy isn't that the big question, right? over the next four to five days we know that it will go into here. and so even by sunday it could be right about here, but eventually it is going to start to lift north and here or here or here, it is too early to tell. but it is something that we'll be watching closely because it could conceivably have an impact on the u.s. in fact the long range, they will bring it in to south florida as the hurricane in about 10 days from now. so it is something that we'll watch and by no means an eminent threat to the u.s. at this point. here's a look at their most accurate seven-day forecast and rain chances will pump up a bit before the front. and then this weekend, it looks good in the morning, low 70s back to the upper 80s in the
next week, all depends on what's going on with matthew. >> all right, thank you, dennis. the head coach john cooper and their tampa bay lightning that made their exhibition debut tonight. short of most of their stars. t.k. said that it showed their highlights coming up next in sports. now here is jimmy kimmel with what is coming up on jimmy kimmel live. >> feast your eyes on this. >> were you ever arrested? >> wow.
[ laughter ] >> not convicted.
hello folks. i wouldn't say it was a bad effort by the lightning, i wouldn't say it was a good one earth, but just rusty. first exhibition game out of the box most would expect some of what you saw tonight. i don't think that many expected the folks to get shut out for two periods by carolina, but that's what happened tonight. hurricane scoring one in the first, brody sutter under a minute to go in the period 1-0 after one. carolina would score twice in the second. lucas walmart leading mid way through the period. and just over a minute left, or
adam wilcox to make it 3-0. braden's point will go through for the lightning as did econgi. and carolina winning this one 3- 2 a. side note tonight -- a side note tonight, steven stamkos still remaining out there in canada. from tommy johns surgery. cobb giving up eight runs in three innings pitched tonight. three coming on this homer by garcia. a final of 13-6, white sox. okay, we have some interesting news today willy taggerd who is no longer with the team. he wouldn't elaborate on why ucla would transfer left. and the starting quarterback
the reason behind that, and that is why they were not at practice today. that they came yesterday. he welcomed his daughter in to this world. and they were doing well, the baby is doing well. with a new father and a different perspective in life now. and and you know you need to do a great job to be a great father and i know that he will. >> meanwhile up in gainesville. jeremy fully will soon step down. and that he was introduced in gainesville. that they would say it happened only because of florida's program that was impossible.
all right tomorrow morning looks quiet with a few storms in the afternoon. we will top out to 90 as we are obviously keeping our eyes on the tropics. the beach looks great with a couple of isolated showers. the water temperature still at 85 degrees. any rain will be between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. again this is what we are talking about with a lot of buzz with good reason. this is called an invest with a tropical wave. but i think that it will become a depression tomorrow becoming
road, one of their reliable models that they will bring it into
south florida as a major hurricane, but i'm not sold on that with a lot of change one way or another. but i'm telling you that there is good reason with a lot of buzz. >> we have continuing coverage on abcactionnews.com. >> have a good night. we'll see you back here
>> dicky: from >> dicky: from hollywood it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- j.k. simmons - from viceland, action bronson - and music from air. and now, if it's all right with you, here's jimmy kimmel!
