the heaviest has been down to venice. there is another line coming. that will produce good downpours and put water on the roads that could cause hydroplaning. watch the i-75 corridor south of sarasota. we are looking at the spin in the atmosphere. that's our threat for today. a waterspout or an isolated tornado. i don't see anything near us at this point. see this line coming through tallahassee? see all these corkscrew things here? that's showing early rotation in the thunderstorms. that's the main line that will come through around 9:00. that's the threat. i want to point this out. see how this is bowing out? when that happens you get winds coming out of the storm. they could get on the gusty side. that will be the issue south of the line and in here through

today. grab your sunglasses. weekend looks good for saturday. sunday could have some issues. i'll talk about that coming up. let's head over to the traffic center and laura byrne checking in on hot spots. >> we are looking at i-275 around 5th avenue north in pinellas county. the trees show it is gusty outside. the roads are wet. this is a reminder for you to make sure you are driving extra carefully this morning and have both hands on the wheel especially over the bridges and sunshine skyway. i-275 and hillsborough avenue we are seeing volume pick up. if you are heading out the door speed sensors are in the green. this will quickly change in the next few minutes. hillsborough county has a new system to fight violence and keep you and your family safe. >> ultimately we'll arrest more people doing illegal gunfire. >> the new technology is called shot spotter to them fight
crime. it uses sensors to pinpoint where shots are fired. that means police can get to crime scenes quicker, which could save lives. 10 news reporter emerald morrow is live at the sheriff's office on 20th street. what is neat about the technology is math is essential to make it all work. >> reporter: all the days you set in algebra class wondering how math would help you in the real world this is a good example. there will be 80 sensors going up in the university and uco areas of tampa. these systems of sensors will have a spotter team who reviews an incident any time the sensors detect gunfire. they notify deputies immediately.
a map will tell them where to go. that means they can get to a scene in minutes when a shooting happens, even when no one calls 9-1-1. >> we hope to get a quick response to gunfire, which will allow us to get deputies to the scene quickly to look for victims and find potential suspects and arrest offenders doing illegal gunfire. >> reporter: here's an example of how shot spotter could have helped. this is video of a student in tampa caught by surveillance video. you can see two men walking down the street. then you see who other men handing off a gun and running down the street shooting at the first two men. deputies did not get to the scene until someone called 9-1- 1. by then the suspects were already gone. deputies say if they had shot spotter they could have gotten there minutes after the shots were fired possibly watching the suspects involved.
spotter will be another key to eye on crime evidences. you might be asking what about my privacy? this sounds too much like big brother is watching. well, that might be true but sheriff's officials say if that's what it takes to keep do. live in tampa emerald morrow 10 an investigation is underway after an amtrak train hit a car in jacksonville killing the driver. florida highway patrol says a tahoe was stopped on the tracks 7:00 thursday evening even though the lights were flashing and the gate was down. the train collided with the suv and the driver was taken to the hospital where he passed away. no one on board the train was injured. we first told you about this story on 10 news wednesday. 21-year-old eli bart was driving home on his motorcycle tuesday. that's when a detective pulled

linda won $1 million in wednesday's drawing. the first thing she did was donated blood in front of the kentucky lottery headquarters. she said in this u.s.a. today article it made sense. i had a million dollars fall out of the sky. she is a single mom with three kids ages ten to 17. they matched five numbers. not the powerball. she said her lifestyle is not going to change. she has no grand plans for spending all the money and she does not plan to quit her job. parents your son or daughter may have come to you before and asked for an advance on and allowance. this is from the dad savings and loan bank. dad responded with the line because apparently i look like i'm made of money. your lack of chores could come back to bite you. if you want to appeal this talk to your mom at the end of the day. the note was signed by the dad
savings and loan. i have the letter for you on my facebook page. the humor doesn't come right through. i hope he is a funnier guy than he seems. that's a lot of pressure on your kids. >> we'll see what mom has to say about it. >> here's $20. don't tell your dad. we want to make sure you are prepared for chance of getting severe weather today. >> we had a tornado in cape coral. the weather perameters are not as bad as they are now. there is a line that will come through. we could get gusty winds with it later this morning around 10:00. we are tracking it for just in case. it is not panic mode or anything like that. it is just storms coming through later this morning. right now this is all rain. it is getting heavier. this line is moving north.
a break in western pasco and hernando county. more rain will filter in. tarpon springs and palm harbor southward is where the heaviest rain is. it will continue to move northeast at 30 miles per hour. heavy batch in central pinnelas. north eastern hillsborough county has filled in. in the fish hawk neighborhood you have been on and off this morning. roads are wet. here comes another batch out of the fish hawk area. it will continue to do that for 45 minutes. i'm tracking heavier rain south of sarasota. that's moving in the area now. it will be in sarasota three minutes ago. lakewood ranch at 6:50. south bradenton area at 7:00. this is just more rain. it is nothing severe. a few gusty winds. lake placid by 7:00 and sebring by 7:15 you'll see heavy rain
come through. that there is the main thing we are tracking. that's the line of storms that could produce a strong thunderstorm or two. i'll tell you this. one of the threats is waterspouts or tornadoes. when that line is solid like that you tend to get more straight line wind occurrences versus tornadoes. if you get individual cells along that line you'll be more worried about tornadoes. it is good news to see it looking like that. that bow there means winds coming in. we'll watch for gusty winds as the storm comes through. there are severe thunderstorm warnings in the tallahassee area. nothing for us. and no watches for anybody including them. the reason we are tracking this closely is the wind at the surface will get windy from the southeast to southwest. at 5,000 feet it is 50 miles per hour. 20,000 feet it is 70 miles per hour.
it is up over 120 miles per hour around 40,000 feet. that type of wind changes with direction and with speed causes thunderstorms to rotate sometimes. that's why that there is going to be a concern for us. plus, they have dew points in the 50s in the panhandle. we have them in the 60s. they'll come up this morning. we have a little bit more energy to work with to make the storms. you'll feel the difference in the temperatures. 64 degrees now. you are going to feel the wind. the wind will be moving through through out the morning hours 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts in the low 30s. it is rainy through late morning then we'll clear out. here's what it looks like on the forecast model. 8:30 to 10:00 that's the best timing for the heavy showers. 12:30 it is clearing east of i- 75. then out of here by 2:30 this afternoon. grab your sunglasses. you'll need those. and low 70s this afternoon. tomorrow is beautiful.
i'll talk about your weekend forecast coming up. sunday morning is another problem. another strong line of storms will roll through 6:30 to 8:30 in the morning. we'll track that for you, too. you can catch our forecast in the newspaper. head back to the weather section to find the 10 weather forecast. here's laura byrne in the traffic center. >> if i-75 southbound and i-4 is part of your commute listen up. we are seeing traffic stack up around i-75 southbound and i-4. speeds 18 miles per hour. those delays are from i-4 up to fowler avenue. consider an alternate route if you are heading out the door or leave a few minutes earlier if you can. some other areas showing delays is i-275 southbound at fowler avenue. it is typical for this point in the morning. the roads are wet this morning from the earlier showers and
what we'll see from the rest of the morning, as bobby has been telling you. it is a reminder for you to drive extra carefully this morning and both hands on the wheel especially on the sunshine skyway. seeing a slow down on i-275 southbound and dale mabry. 39 miles per hour. this is where the lane shift took place on tuesday. drivers are adjusting to this area. if you are driving this area leave 20 minutes earlier to make sure you are getting there on time. we have a crash on veterans expressway. delays. it is around waters avenue. we are seeing yellow, that's typical slowdowns we'll see for the morning commute. looks like the slowest drive expressway. 18 minutes from the sun coast airport. still looking good on i-275 southbound from i-75 to i-4 where it is 20 minutes. and i-275 northbound from gandy to i-4 it is 19 minutes.
because of the lane shift. pinellas county looking good. no crashes there or major delays. manatee and sarasota looking good also this morning. live back to passe grille. we are seeing light rain in this area. if you look at that palm tree you are seeing the winds pick up. bobby was talking about the winds and how it will lead to potential for severe weather later today. if you are heading out the door keep in mind there are light
reports the bucs will pick dirk cutter to be the new head coach. when we get more information we'll update you on "10 news at 5:00" this afternoon and online at wtsp.com. if you live in a mobile home get to a building with a solid foundation if we get a tornado today. when it comes to your child's safety in school each school schools have designated places on campuses free from hazards. if you have a concern about the school and their plan reach out to the teacher. >> this is a good time to decide where your safe place is. it doesn't take too long. >> most of us will not have the problem. this is not a huge outbreak of tornadoes. there is a small chance. because it is an el nino winter
we want folks to be more aware. the line on the left-hand side is the one we are watching. it should weaken because the waters near shore are cool. i don't think it weakens enough and goes away. travel weather today if you are heading up the southeast coast this storm system will move up into the carolinas later tonight. most areas look nice across the region. guess what? we get to do this again on sunday morning. the gulf. that's early sunday morning as it comes through. today will be beautiful. sunny and low 70s. sunday afternoon the temperatures fall back down into the 60s and it is windy for the afternoon. >> it is getting busy on the roadways. this is i-75 southbound at fowler avenue. looking at our maps you can see where the delays are on i-75 southbound. it is from fowler to i-4 due to a crash in that area. plan to take a different route or give yourself extra time this morning. extra time is what you'll want
