6:16 am
it's just very pesky the past few days and i'm looking at the radar this morning and there we go. hernando county, pasco county, some heavier showers once again pouring onshore from weeki wachee down through spring hill. there's your moderate to heavy rain. that's not lasting long. the influence of this low beginning to wane as it moves further to the west. but still enough where we have along highway 19 some showers so actually it's around weeki wachee we've had reports of the last few days eight inches of rain. that's a tremendous -- a month's worth of rain so far. hudson, light to moderate rain going southward on 19 as we get into pinellas county. we're waiting for this to move onshore and this little heavier shower will impact port richey, new port richey and holiday over the course of the next half hour. other than that we're quiet. but you look out to the gulf and
6:17 am
it's not done yet because we're still pinwheeling little spokes of energy around the low combined with a tremendous amount of energy we've had. a couple of inches of rain possible, the flood watch continues, pasco, hernando, citrus, levy counties until about 8:00 tonight. then i think they'll probably drop it as the storm system itself starts to slide even further toward the west. away. pensacola to new orleans, it's their turn to pick up the big rains. now 77 in clearwater, 76 in st. petersburg. bradenton at around 77 and you just see all of this mess just sitting up here in the northeastern gulf but slowly this low is starting to trek toward the northwest and as it does, it's going to take all of this deep moisture with it. the end result for us is that
6:18 am
normal summer setup. the pattern will shift and that happens tomorrow. watch the future cast. again, this is painting itself pretty well this morning. some showers offshore, up to the northeast and you fast forward it and it continues to bring a few waves of rain in today, tonight and then notice by tomorrow at noon, it's backed off and we'll get more afternoon and evening tomorrow. so hopefully the last morning that we have to deal with this. by the way, i know for hill borrow county going back to school tomorrow, it would be nice to keep it dry. so scattered rains along the coastline and north this morning and then everything kind of shifts inland, 84 degrees for a high temperature. tonight we're back to 77. it will be damp, it will be muggy and then tomorrow afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. rain chances don't just drop.
6:19 am
a lot of afternoon and evening storms. we're just going to shift the timing of it all. so we'll get more thunderstorm activity thursday, friday, saturday afternoon and evening. rain chances going 50% and then eventually back to 40% for this weekend. >>vanessa: thanks, dave. we'll check out a look near the interchange. this is along i-4 and this is just before you get to that point downtown tampa. these are the westbound lanes picking up and of course, eastbound is coming towards us here on the screen. particular area. you'll notice a shine to the roadways we've been reminding folks dealing with the wet roads to slow it down and give yourself extra time to do so. five minutes is the time along i-4 coming from the mlk exit to 275. give yourself eight minutes to travel bruce b downs blfld to i-4 along 75 southbound and then southbound 275 should take 34 minutes from fletcher to the pinellas bayway. >>laura: thank you. have you ever tried falling just for fun?
6:20 am
an internet celebrity. but let's just hope she has some health insurance. >>russell: put down the technology and enjoy the real world. one woman just learned a introducing dunkin's new cold brew coffee, steeped slowly in cold water for small batches discover the craft of cold brew today and keep on. america runs on dunkin'. i got shot down over vietnam and spent eleven months in a pow camp. what donald trump said about our members of the military being captured is a disgrace. he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured. when you fly over enemy territory, the odds might be against you being able to come home.

6:34 am
written information about zika and they're going to be learning about it in class. teachers are going to be using the so-called teacher tool kits so they have the most current information available. head of our state's education department just made this statement. i quote, it's a great opportunity to utilize all the resources that are available and our educators to help our students and our communities understand what to do. this is not only a health concern. it's also a monetary concern. you know that florida really relies on tourism and that relies on our image. we don't want our image to be tarnished. experts are saying we want to get the zika thing under control before the winter tourist season. otherwise, this could mean losing money. back to you. >>laura: thank you. >>russell: rays are shopping around for a new stadium. they've been trying to leave the trop for quite a while. >>laura: they are not alone in

6:37 am
because the jamming devices can be used on almost all electronic devices. they say this gives the military too much power. you can get your olympic spirit on today at the glazer children museum in tampa. they're hosting summer olympic days the next two weeks. families can experience games and olympic inspired activities and it's all included with admission. prices are $10 for the kids and $15 for adults. >>russell: the fight against frki stop the controversial practice.

6:40 am
?? ? ba da ba ba ba ? >>dave: lots of cloud cover this morning and yes, more rain on the radar. while we haven't had a lot in the tampa area so far, i'm watching as some of the showers are building in the gulf again and starting to stream onshore.
6:41 am
orks oes weaken and fall apart. west ofbrooville, i doave some light in. brooksll ye,'re about to get wet. it's not a big deal, just a little light rain ths where the heaviest o the rain has been fromn soh on down to richey, holiday, tarpon springs. all of this heavy rain is sitting off to the west of you but it's all streaming southwest to northeast. i think this part of pasco county is in for a lot more rain this morning. it's always one spot, right? and so we'll get maybe a couple of inches of rain. that's the potential. that's why the flood watch is out for pasco county, hernando and citrus county through 8:00 today as we're streaming
6:42 am
the other thing i'm noticing is that you're getting some rain over here. it's way out into the gulf. we'll be watching this as it approaches the coastline a few hours from now. i just think that we're not completely done with the influence of this low yet. not yet. by tomorrow we will start to shift the weather pattern and by tomorrow, i think the showers and the thunderstorms come in the afternoon which obviously is more normal for this time of year. there's t f tonight at 8:00. some of these spots under this flood watch in citrus county have picked up almost eight inches of rain so it wouldn't take much more to cause problems with some rivers, creeks and streams. 76 in st. petersburg. 77 in brandon. this is your culprit. again, just this mid level low just spinning around. one thing it's beginning to do, starts to move back to the west. obviously as it does that, and it takes away some of the
6:43 am
think will happen. our winds will begin to shift to a southeasterly direction and as you do that, then you'll start to sort of transfer the rain from the mornings, which we're getting now, to the afternoon and evenings. so i'm hoping this is the last morning that we have to deal with this. but it's almost like a routine the last three or four days. i want to you keep the umbrellas handy. i want to keep your skytower radar app handy, especially north up to hernando county where we're seeing most of the rain. heaviest near the coast and north of tampa. 48 degrees for a high temperature. damp, muggy tonight while we don't have a lot of rain overnight, you're still going to have a lot of that sitting water on the side of the road. you know some ponding. there's nowhere for it to go. everything is full. tomorrow morning we get some sunshine, bring it back to 88 degrees. we're still going to have enough moisture around for scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. marine forecast obviously today is going to be a tough one
6:44 am
coastal showers but with a south wind picking up at 15 knots. that's going to turn it up a bit so seas running two to four feet and a moderate chop. high tide at -- oh, now. i was going to say we had it earlier but no. it's like around now. next seven days, you'll see rain chances will drop back to more normal august levels. 50% for thursday and friday. 40% for saturday, sunday and for monday. vanessa? >>vanessa: thanks, right now and they're both on the majors. bear with me as i talk about this crash. i'm trying to pull the other one up on camera but the first one we'll let you know about is in pasco county, causing big delays. it's southbound 75. two crashes, one of them at state road 52 and the other one is about three miles south. both of them are causing some lane blockage. best work around here is to exit at 52 and you should be able to
6:45 am
instead, get back onto the interstate just beyond. i did finally get the shot for you. this is i-4, westbound direction. we have a crash reported, looks like this is in the mango road area. appears to involve maybe a couple of vehicles, one of them a jackknifed pickup truck and also a pickup truck. we don't know a whole lot about this. we had to call authorities and let them know to send a road ranger because it wasn't reported on any of their systems so we're not hearing ofny blockage. i'm not seeing any myself but it is causing some major delays. basically from this point almost all the way back to forbes road so that's pretty substantial. drivers can avoid the westbound delays by taking u.s. 92 and of course, we'll be following this one closely. we'll let you know once we learn anything else. looks like actually maybe the fire department just showed up so maybe they'll be reporting back short well more on injuries and lane blockages. we'll get that to you as soon as we can.
6:46 am
we'll check in with charley belcher. good morning. >>charley: "good day." how are you doing? busy couple of mornings for you. >>vanessa: yeah. the rain is not good. >>charley: it's so interesting how the rain and traffic issues just go hand in hand. two people busiest at the station, you and dave osterberg, no doubt about it. so thanks for keeping us safe there, vanessa. >>vanessa: my pleasure. >>charley: i hear your voice a little bit. how about yest i was really proud of yesterday. you probably never even made it out of the traffic center, did you? >>vanessa: i was supposed to but -- >>charley: i know. the original plan, i think you were going to be with me over in clearwater and then as the weather turned worse, they knew he needed to stay close to home and i was lucky enough to have jennifer epstein over there. i'll tell you what. we had a good time. we both were a little nervous going into it, not knowing if people would come all the way to the long center and if they would find us and the rain and
6:47 am
