12:18 pm
hurricanes, category 3 or higher. and they've upped that chance of that being above average season all the way up to 35%. big reason why, el nino is basically done. we're seeing lighter wind shear in the atmosphere so conditions are all favorable that we could see big opportunity. we're talking about numbers here. that doesn't tell us anything about where these eventual systems could end up going. now, skytower radar has been pretty quiet through the morning hours. you can see with our radar we're looking at very quiet conditions over the tampa bay area right now. but it's going to get active. once again as we get into the mid to late afternoon hours. we'll see these storms which are right now over on the other side of this state. they'll be marching their way across the state. we're back into that more typical weather pattern where we've got that east and southeasterly wind. it meets up with the sea breeze here on the west coast and then we get those big thunderstorms,
12:19 pm
we're looking for once again for today. now, outside right now, we're at 86 degrees. the dew point is at 76 making the humidity at 72% and currently we've got a light northwesterly wind at 5 miles an hour so it looks like we're starting to pick up that sea breeze which will eventually bring those big thunderstorms -- remember, they'll typically start east of i-75 and as we head towards sunset a lot of these tend to roll back towards the coastline. brandon, you're currently at 88 degrees. wesley chapel 87. up in brooksville 84 degrees. ninety ritchey has an 88. and sarasota currently checks in at 89 degrees and look at the heat index, remember, we had a lot of rain over the past several days so there's a lot of moisture still in the atmosphere so it brings that humidity up. you combine that with the heat and we're seeing these triple digit heat in connections once again. 107 in is bringing down in arcadia, 100 feels like 96 here in tampa in new port richey,
12:20 pm
temperature at 99 degrees. there you see some of that moisture, showers and thunderstorms over on the eastern side of that state and with that east and southeasterly wind it'll help to pull that across the street state. and collide with those -- or the afternoon sea breeze and that will give us is big thunderstorms as we get in the afternoon that. wonder what happened to that area of low pressure. that gave us all the rain over the weekend. and the first part of the week, you could see it has not gone all that far away but really just enough to pull it us because you can see still seeing a lot of rain up into the panhandle and this continues the very slowly work its way onto the west but isn't it amazing what a difference just a few hundred miles can make? yesterday broke out into really some beautiful sun as we got into the afternoon hours and then we look for more of those scattered showers and thunderstorms. that's what basically florida is all about, isn't it? scattered showers and thunderstorms again for this afternoon. it on futurecast. there they are working their way across the state.
12:21 pm
overnight hours again for tomorrow. we're looking at that morning sun, afternoon sea breezes gives us the scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon, in fact, we'll carry that all the way through the weekend as well so that pattern continues into saturday where those showers and thunderstorms most prevalent here on the west coast as we get into the late afternoon and into the evening hours. now, those rain chances -- they'll be slowly working their way back down to a more typical lvel as we head into the weekend. back down to that which is pretty normal for this. for the rain, though, we're going to see these temperatures into low and in some cases going into the mid-90s. our forecast goes like this. for today, hot, humid scattered showers and thunderstorms, late afternoon daytime high, 91 degrees. storms wind down overnight lows, 78 again, for tomorrow we see the morning sun, scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon, daytime high of 91 degrees, winds will be turning more towards the westerly direction 2 to athlete
