7:10 am
pshifting to more of a southerly pdirection, how it will impact. prain is on the way tomorrow pmorning.
7:11 am
pabout how much rain we're going p>>dave: about 7:13 and there's pyour cloud cover from a pdifferent angle as we're looking pat the tampa cam and heading pinto the downtown area. panother shot of river view plooking back to the coast. pwe do have the mostly cloudy pskies, a lot of that just the phigh clouds filtering in. phere's a picture of the coast pand the bradenton beach where pwe'll be what, seven minutes or pso until the sun comes up and pthe cloudy skies but these pclouds actually helped us out. pthe wind is shifting around also phelped and the two combined to pbring these temperatures up 15, p20 degrees warmer than they were pyesterday in the 7:00 hour. pso while you'll definitely need pa light jacket this morning, we pdon't have extremes as far as pthe 30s or 20s out there. pwe have 50s. p50 in brooksville.
7:12 am
pfrost proof, sebring, back to pthe coast a couple of degrees pwarmer, tampa at 55. pst. petersburg and sarasota both pat 57. phere's the wide view. phere's the next weather maker, pcold front slowly working ptowards the south and the east. pyou see all of this moisture pstreaming out ahead of the pfront. pout here over the pwest-northwestern gulf we're panticipating a low pressure psystem to develop the next 24 phours and just start to slide peastward. plast time the low was much pfarther north up here, this time pit's going to be closer to us. pthat's going to mean for us the ossibility of some strong pstorms but also a better chance pof actually picking up some pheavier rain so the computer pmodels have been picking up on pthat with the low being closer. pwe're going to get more rain poverall. plook at all of this moisture pdeveloping, just being pulled pfrom the eastern pacific and pit's just all headed our way. pfor instance, here's the future pcast.
7:13 am
pit's quiet now and tuesday at p7:00 a.m. and then you'll start pto see how the clouds begin to pfilter in. phere comes all of that moisture pand then by wednesday, 11:00, pjust a line of showers and pthunderstorms moving through the parea. pbut because this front is not pjust going to come ripping pthrough here, you may get more pthan one round of storms pbetween, say, tomorrow morning pand thursday midday so that's pwhy i think we're going to get psome decent rainfall amounts paround central florida. pthere's also a marginal risk for psome severe weather, strong psouthward. pthat's where a lot or most of pthe energy is going to be and ponce again, the computer models. phere is one bringing us about p1.2 inches through, say, late in pthe day on thursday and then panother one which actually pbrings us a lot more rainfall, pbrings us over two inches. pi think the point is, look at
7:14 am
p2.45 inches of rain. pjust in general, we're going to pget heavier rain around here, an pinch or two beginning tomorrow pbut ending on thursday. pand i think that's a good note. pwe have the weekend coming, pright? pwe're looking at the weekend peven though it's just tuesday. pincreasing clouds, nice and pmild. pat least mild air around. p72 for a high. ptonight cloudy, mild, 63 for the povernight low and then for ptomorrow, we'll go rain and pstorms developing. prain chances tomorrow sky high, paround 90%. phigh temperature of 70 degrees. pget your boating in today, ptomorrow and thursday. prain and storms around. pby friday, though, you might be pa little cooler but it should be pnice to finish off the week and pthen you have the gasparilla arade on saturday and that's pgoing to go up without a hitch pweatherwise. pi think sunday we're back in the plower 70s. pjen? p>>jennifer: dave, 7:16. pwe're in the heart of the rush phour drive.
