late in the day today. a big band of rain coming on shore. rainfall today at tia just .39. the high today, nine degrees below the average. i mean, july the hottest july on record for us. so far in august many days below 90. we always seem to have a spell at some point every single summer we'll have three to five days where it's cloudy and wet. usually because of a stalled front or area of low pressure. that was the case this go just low pressure west of us. this was what happened similar to this last august. last august. o, a lot more en this go around not as much. but half as watch. wicki watchee at -- wicki watchi at 8.2. 5.1.
diminishing inland. i think there will be some showers in the eastern gulf late tonight. but i don't think it will be as widespread or as heavy as it has been past couple days because the upper-level low is moving away. so there will be showers near the coast but i don't expect it to be just a solid line of rain moving onshore. by thursday we'llk tns hine in the morning. then afternoon storms. that will continue into the weekend. the mercury 90. right now temperatures sitting in the 70s and low 80s. we've been between 77 and 81 degrees all day today. that's, yoknow,our dre teerature swin andhe high of 81 occurred around 9:30 this morning. 76 in brooksville. 82 weeki wachee. inland we've got 70's across the board. up every level low back here is slowly moving away.
influence in our weather. pure tropical moisture in red or rust. whatever color you think it is. you can see it's slowly move away. by the weekend notice the wind flow from the east and southeast. that will lead to afternoon storms and a more typical summertime set up this weekend. with daytime highs back up near 90. so just a long duration of cloudy weather is about to come to an end. partly cloudy tonight. showers in the tonight. but tomorrow the focal point for rain should be across our inland counties and not much or lesser amounts along the coast and 88. then on thursday sunshine in the morning and afternoon storms with the mercury back up near 90. and the weekend back to a more typical summer weekend. 90 for a high. 78 for a low. rain chances between 40 and 50 percent. back to you. still ahead, don't go away.
