you can see the beach pretty cloudy and there is definitely rain and thunderstorms out there. take a look at the radar. that is northwest hillsborough, and right on by the golf. there is quite a lot of lightning. let's take a closer look. there is everything in motion. everything coming in from the south and moving north. northwest hillsborough, you'll be picking up some of the rain over the next half hour. taking a closer look with neighborhood levels. down to seminal, some of the heavy rain by indian rock. down from eastlake back to palm harbor extending pretty light rain anywhere from dade city back down. also highlands and manatee county as well as sarasota county. bottom line we will be looking at this for a few hours and then tomorrow i actually think we will start to see more sunshine with that east flow /southeast floats still giving
temperatures hitting mid-80s because of the additional cloud cover. in fact upper 70s right now across sarasota county because of the rain. let's look at the satellite picture. it is the clouds blowing everything in. overnight tonight the heavier storms will be right along the coastline. southeast flow. tristar to tuesday. scattered storms working their way back towards the coast. it is october. starting to feel more like august. this however is more of a september/october issue when you start talking about a major hurricane in the caribbean. there is your i. a couple things with matthew. hurricane force winds 35 miles from the center. that is important. look at the model. all the way
carolina station that is something that is extremely interesting. this still could impact the east coast. maybe not florida but at the carolinas. check this out. this is from the international space station. this is live. there is matthew. do you see the i -- imac -- eye . it will continue to move to the north and eventually impact the state of florida at least on the east coast into friday. our impact? i do not think we see any. i really don't. immuno i think the track will come towards the west. i do not believe at this point in time we see anything here. we will still see storms this evening and tomorrow and in fact i take that back. we will see something from matthew by the end of the week. dryer, cooler air. we'll talk about that in the next half hour. it is that moment of panic . you see police lights in

also fusion from 2010. safety regulators have been getting complaints that the doors fly open when you are driving. in the power assisted steering can fail on the fusion. speaking of a ford they are up to a new trick when it comes up to police cars.>>
into the spoilers. you'll see the flashing lights -- it would help if you did not speed. four says by moving the lights to the back of the car it creates a better view for the officers. kind of a safety feature. >> when you think about it -- doesn't feel like the hollywood -- -- holidays sneak up on you earlier and earlier? >> i'm trying to get a lot done earlier but to no avail.>> people have started their holiday shopping already. one 1 million people have already finished.>> that is impressive. more than half of us we don't really finish until december. you are not alone if you cannot stand the overachievers. within 70% of people in a survey say they are annoyed by the early holiday shopping season but i say kudos to those people that get it done now.
see that many holiday displays should not even be up until around giving. but they are so people that say it is okay to see them around halloween. >> is actually harder to keep stocks shop -- shops stocked. stores are just reacted to what people want. they want to shop earlier. i say yes go ahead. enjoy the holidays. i don't want to be in the rush two weeks before we will be back the second half of the hour. you can expect live coverage of joe biden down in sarasota. we will let you know when he takes the stage emily does we will send you that way. plus development -- what we know about that little boy killed after police say a teenager

to the west. first of all this is actually a very small storm in terms of wind. they only extend 35 miles out in the center. once you get whatever the i is -- unfortunately i believe it will be the extreme western part of haiti -- that is where most of the devastation will occur if you get 40 miles outside and you are talking about tropical storm force wind. tomorrow morning -- by the way this probably will make landfall by sunrise tomorrow morning -- i don't the actual i approaches until tomorrow. tonight they will get the leading edge. for that matter they already are but the hurricane force wind in a red color. that will not be until tomorrow. and then it goes to the east side of cuba. notice one other thing hurricane force wind starts to expand after it goes into the bahamas. that could come into play not just for them but with the east coast of florida.

towards the western side of haiti. is no way around that. 35 miles out from the center is the harshest wind. first about look at where the code is shifted. over to the central part of florida. everything has moved west. but it is important to remember this track is still well offshore -- well to the east of florida. this is the official hurricane center track. some of our models are bringing it closer. not of our models present to the west coast of florida. that is important to remember we're planning our days for the next several days. the other big bang? hurricane center says it will make landfall in the carolinas sometime on saturday afternoon everything has shifted west. category 4 hurricane tonight. category 4 hurricane when it
now we have to watch this. remember with hurricane force wind only extending about 35 miles away from the center, this sent it would have to get very close to florida for us to have that kind of an impact. again what i say us ice mean the east coast of florida but it is important to remember that tropical storm force wind than 185 miles from the center so while this will not be much of an issue for us on the west coast of florida, if this track does get close enough to the western bahamas, anywhere from nassau, maybe east of nasa all of a sudden we are looking at the potential tropical wind from miami to melbourne and daytona. that is the latest advisory from the hurricane center. spaghetti model states look at what they we are talking about. right to the bahamas. you're right about here. not in our immediate viewing area and then landfall
