blast of cool air. what you will see is it will feel dryer and breezy and the mornings especially sunday will be cooler. you can see the front and as it comes through it will push some of the showers through the overnight from the northern counties right down to the southern counties. moderate rain from dade city and san antonio and zephyrhills coming your way and consider yourself fortunate. if you don't see rain this evening and the rain chances are pretty much nonexistent through next weekend. we are in a very dry stretch. for the folks visiting us for the snowbirds coming down for the winter i'm sure they are loving it and we need rain. it is dry and this is all we are going to see at least for the next week, maybe even longer than that. the showers taper off overnight. winds picking up on saturday. not necessarily windy but breezy right through the afternoon and for that matter to sunday as well. we will see a mixture of clouds
blue skies and not a bad day and rain chances remain extremely low right through next week end. temperatures now in the lower 70s and the dew points are rather high. temperatures will be dropping in the mid-60s maybe some low 60s up north and i think they are are about four or five degrees cooler by sunday morning. tampa, clear water and st. pete low 70s unpartly sunny skies and if you live close to the beach the rain chances lower than if you live like i said by sunrise this is a long gone moving down to the south and as quickly as this front comes in, the winds will shift over to the northeast and that brings us back to the same kind of pattern we have had of late. there is the dryer air. you can see it moving in from the north and it extend up into georgia and this is the good news in terms of the refreshing air and lower humidity and still with a northeast wind it will be around and you will see it with future cast and the
the west side. we have seen this lately. through the afternoon cloudy period and some sunny period and breezy weather. i still would not write off the chance of a sprinkle eastern counties but not many. on the east coast maybe, sunday, same deal. partly sunny skies and still breezy and a lot of sunshine and then at times some clouds. and maybe a sprinkle over on the east coast. not a lot of change in terms of the cloud cover. but you are going to notice the change especially sunday monday morning because it will feel cooler and a lot dryer with those breezy conditions. now overall the european model through next week. not a lot of rain less than a tenth of an inch. high temperatures on saturday, in the mid to upper 80s and 88 in sarasota and 87 in tampa. tomorrow we will be closer to the upper 70s and low 80s which is where we should be this time of the year.
downtown and i think the same ballpark again on sunday. for the voters small craft advisories. if you are thinking about taking the boat out. never a bad thing but it will be choppy out there. moderate chop and northeast winds up to 20 knots and water temperature, clear water, 73 degrees and the upcoming tides and the sunrise and sunset that goes an hour back tomorrow night. hour-by-hour forecast. partly cloudy skies and morning mostly sunny. in the afternoon we will see clouds from the east and the temperatures topping out in the lower 80s. here is a look at florida's most accurate forecast. breezy saturday and sunday and highs in the 80s. long range forecast with a strong front and a taste of cooler weather. this week seasonal. good way to describe it. highs in the low 80s and like i said tomorrow night you will get the hour of sleep back when

come back. hello.
the buccaneers have two players with concussions and two headed for injured reserves. mike evans in protocol and the same for penfile and evans expected back at practice on monday. the two players lost smith and jones. but quarterback jamesis winston is fine. for the bucks defense that's a real problem these past two weeks. john sabol has more on this. reporter: the last two buccaneers games some of the worse offensive football in the nfl against the raiders and the falcons thursday night the defense gave up a combined 73 points in nearly 1100 yards of offense. >> we just got to be better.
the stats are what they are. we got to get better and that is no secret. >> the question on the minds of bucks fans today, why is this happening? >> we are talking about communicating all of the time and making sure everybody is on the same page and we are not doing a good job. >> the defense should have upgraded but instead the bucks are one of the worse tackling in total defenses ranking at the bottom five in most yards and points given up this season. >> they beat us, we are giving up too many plays. >> the faith in the defense is question thursday night after atlanta did not get a 15-yard face mask penalty. it would have been the falcons on a 3rd and 22 instead atlanta then faced a 4th and 7 and opted for a 41 field goal an. cutter now regrets 24 hours
that's on me. and i don't have confidence, i do. that was a bad decision. >> if there is any good news they welcome the 2-6 chicago bears next sunday. the bears offense is the 3rd lowest scoring team so if there was a game the bucks defense could bounce back, this might be it. john sable action sports. let's hope the lightning has more jump in their step against the devils than these two goal deficits becoming unfamiliar. the lightning in a shoot out and getting a point but the two goal deficit thing has to stop. >> as the season goes on the teams are tougher and gets more defensive and harder to score and being down two goals in the season is pretty insurmountable. we have to do a better job of having a better start to get the first one for us and it's
league. if some were seeing upwards of 5 million people showed up for the cubs victory parade. i think that may be great hanging outside. there were a ton of folks and the cubs rolled down to grant park. i saw kids, moms and dads and generations of cubs fans
