7:16 am
questionable boating by late day as storms fill in across the interior. overlooking downtown tampa. some filtered sunshine this morning. couple of extra clouds kind of leftovers from rain near the coast last night. it is 79 degrees. winds are out of east. humidity is up. dew points are up. we feel that tropical feel to the air as we head into the workweek as well and that's where the best rain chance will move in. for the weekend, i want to stress, we really aren't going to see big impacts from tropical moisture. maybe a l classic florida sea breeze weather. 79 today. 78 in palm harbor. westchase, 7 7. 76 in land o lakes. inverness good morning at 73. 76 lakewood ranch. pop over to portions of polk county. haines city at 76. sebring at 78. moisture aloft is in place. the gray shade on water vapor. over the weekend i will see the rain chance both days at 50%. notice we are not seeing the influence or moisture to the south.
7:17 am
that's all to it today and tomorrow meaning late day, heavier downpours with lots of lightning. please, please stay weather aware. still need to watch this disturbance in the tropics. the computer models that are investigating. an area that we are watching for gradual development. even though we see a lot more moisture today where you see those pinks and reds, this is disorganized moisture thanks to strong wind shear kind of knocking that moisture east of whatever kind oce the odds of development city low the next two days. looks likely over the weekend that something will develop. 40% chance the next five days and we won't write this off completely. the odds of organization going down. because of it the computer models as we set this into motion show the west-northwest track. the portions of south florida. and kind of squally weather sunday and possibly early monday. by monday afternoon, if this holds together and makes it into the gulf, that's when we
7:18 am
the good news for models that more of them are tracking west. more showing a weaker system. even if low pressure spins to our west and weekly over our area, we will still see moisture and that is the bottom line. our rain chances going up. the question remains how much rain are we exactly going to see, and it is still not really set in stone until the moisture makes it into the gulf. on monday, we will have a better idea. the further south you live and near the coast, the best amount of rain. the best rain chance you will see an evening, these numbers pile up. so the numbers down from a few days ago, but still three, four inches of rain not out of the question in our coastal areas. it depends on where the moisture lines up. nearly impossible to predict that at this point. at least we know these percentages going up. today a 50% rain chance in tampa. 60% down in sarasota county, manatee county. these storms push west late in the day and do it all over again on sunday. we will be watching this as it
7:19 am
as it does on the east side, the moist side, that is why our main impact regardless of development which looks lower today will be extra rain early next week. today, though, scattered pm storms pushing west. we will hit 91. not 95 like yesterday. coastal storms ending generally by 8:00, partly cloudy overnight. back to morning sun. afternoon storms filter in west. 91 with a 40% to 50% rain chance. boating an east wind. seas 2 feet. a moderate chop today. a high tide pete pier. the forecast subject to change. the trend is rain chances going up to 70% monday and tuesday, dropping a bit late week, but still up there as we still could have lingering tropical moisture. a lot to watch this week. >> alcides: grab those umbrellas. lindsay, thank you. tuesday is primary day, republican senator marco rubio is being targeted by democrats. >> reporter: fox's phil keating hat the latest. >>reporter:if democrats are going to retake control of the

7:33 am
is west of our area, we are still in the path of pretty deep moisture. we will have to monitor what happens if this makes it into the gulf, but with the trend i am seeing right now, i am seeing no reason why we shouldn't up our rain chance to 70% by monday which is high, not to say it will rain all day long but with heating tampa south, locally heavy rain possible. we will talk rainfall totals from the workweek ahead coming up. >> alcides: you just heard lindsay. we expect a lot of rain next week. in south tampa, flooding. the stormwater fee is up for a vote. kimberly kuizon joins us live in bayshore with what councilmembers are hoping to accomplish. good morning to you, kim. >> reporter: good morning, alcides. we have seen it time after time again. this area of bayshore boulevard behind me. we have seen flooded out and this year tampa city council could be voting for a fee that could hopefully change things for the area. this is the second straight year that tampa city council has voted on creating a fee to
7:34 am
last year's city council voted yes to part of a plan to raise existing fees. that helped to pay -- to clean out ditches and unplug storm drains, but city councilmembers shot down mayor bob buckhorn's plans to create a new assessment to pay for drain improvements. some critics of proposed fee are worried it could hurt homeowners on a budget. this year the mayor's office have come up with a few changes to the plan saying they will also spend 20 million of the city's investment tax. they have also created a h hardship progr or disabled homeowners pay the fee, and they have made it easier for property owners to apply for mitigation credit to lower the fee. the fee will start at $45 for a medium-sized home and could go up to $09 over a period of six years. now this will only affect homeowners in certain parts of the city. those who have already had drainage improvements won't face the fee. mayor bob buckhorn went to twitter and facebook asking city residents to go ahead and

a potential double whammy from mother nature has put emergency officials on high alert. >> governor scott's office is concerned that strong winds and flooding water could help spread the zika virus. we asked dr. jo what people could do to protect themselves. >> dr. jo: good morning. you know, we always worry about standing water whether from storm or heavy rain, and we get lots of those here obviously in our area. for mosquitoes, they can hatch their eggs in as litt bottle cap of water. so when you have a storm, when you have a heavy rain, and you have water accumulating in areas where it normally may not accumulate, then do you -- you give those mosquitoes an opportunity to breed. now in order to spread the virus, of course, they would have had had to have bitten someone who was carrying the virus and certainly they love humans. so at that point in time. when you increase the mosquito population and increase the number of individuals who are bringing zika back from other
7:41 am
that we could then be exposed. after the storm, if there has been wind damage to roofs, to screens, certainly when you think of gutters, for example, where there is water standing in gutters. all of those things can contribute to the increased risk of getting bitten by a mosquito. if that mosquito has been carrying zikao or anything e else. it can increase your risk of getting it. so many things homes to discourage those mosquitos from breathing. obviously removing standing water this that could be number oe. anything from filling up depressions and holes in the yard to taking plants like bromeliad s that can collect watr and either spraying them with something like an oil base, i have heard even garlic oil, various things can be utilized. it can be very natural or using a dunk that you crushed up and
7:42 am
of flowers. those can be -- that can be helpful. other things you can do certainly is to wear repellent. make sure that all of your screens are in good repair. another thing that i think might be helpful to lots of folks is to just reach out to your neighbors. anyone who may be a little bit older. somebody who really can't do those things for themselves because, guess what, those mosquitoes can obviously go from their yard to your yard. just that helping hand is not only going to help them but >> and county officials adds that having a backup generator may be a good idea. in the event of a storm, people could be left. in the florida heat. the florida summer, many will open their windows to cool off allowing all those mosquitoes inside homes. and coming up after the break, the couple is saved while stranded on a remote island in the south pacific. >> their actions brought them to safety. and strap on your invisible
