with fox 13 meteorologist jim weber. >> we've got a pretty strong esterly flow across the state over the past several days allows for very nice morning. 're seeing plenty of sun m foay wm afternoon. last couple afternoons we've up to 93 degrees, rain chances have been sliding down because we've actually been bringing some dryer air across the state. also, the windsbeen so strong, the storms race right out into the gulf of mexico. now skytower radar once again, just like the past ser you can see the storms developing first on the eastern side of the state. they make that march all the way across the state. just those isolated scattered showers have eventually come up larger. they look for afternoon sea breeze. and last couple of days pinned right along the coastline. we just get little small showers that roll through. not until not it gets on beaches basically we see big thunderstorms developing. now today, looks like that sea breeze should develop a little
12:21 pm
allow for more areas to get scattered storms as we get into the mid to late afternoon hours. right now heaviest rain is basically right along the florida turnpike eastern polk county. down into highlands county as well. you can see larger cells working there way toward you. so places like sebring down towards lake placid. probably next hour, maybe hour and a half, you're going to see storms rolling through that area. now right now temperatures still warming up quite a bit over in brandon currently at 91 degrees. here in tampa, 90. bradenton 91 degrees. you head down to venice currently 90. brooksville currently sitting a 87. that high pressure which has been sitting to our north giving good easterly flow across the state, that's going to start to shift a bit further to the south. as we go through the next couple of days. that combined with the dry air that's in place, that's going to start to drop those rain chances for us as we go through the next several days. and eventually as we head
12:22 pm
flow. so we kind of reverse that pattern. we'll have better chance of some some showers earlier in day. they will kind of work their way across the state. but because of that dry air in place, we're going to keep rain chances on the low side as we head through the weekend. but still seeing some of these scattered showers in and around the louisiana, obviously not the flooding type rains but the rain, on all flooding there, it's going to take some time to dry all of that up. because, various flat land there, a lot of land actually so going to take probably a couple weeks really to start really truly dry things out across the louisiana. for us today we're looking more of these storms during the late afternoon hours. daytime high of 92 degrees. then for tonight, a warm sultry night. storms wind down overnight low of 77. then again for tomorrow partly cloudy, just isolated storms as we go through the afternoon. daytime high of 92 degrees. here's your 7 day forecast, notice rain chances, they are dropping down to about 20
12:23 pm
it on the low side as we get into t first part of next only up to 30 pcent chance of showers and thunderstorms. linda. thanks, jim still ahead we will show you new approach to mentor i think everyone's home becomes a part of them or takes on their character. and you lose so much of that stuff in the flood that you just cannot imagine how much damage a little bit of water can do. and if i would have had to float the cost of repairs... ...i'd have probably lost the house. the flood insurance allows me to put my house back together.
