5:46 pm
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. he wears it like a crown. "make america great again". but trump made his shirts in bangladesh. his ties in china. and his suits in mexico. in fact, the real donald trump outsourced his products and jobs to 12 different countries. so don't believe the hat. you can't make america great again, if you don't make things
5:47 pm
now your forecast with paul dellegatto. and models show a break in the rain later tonight and but for now we have a ways to go. there is rain still over the gulf and a lot of that is moving northeast over the bay area. and inland this is going to be the trend i think and all the way into friday with the rain near the coast and shifting north and goes in that direction. a lot of you are thinking about going to the bucs game tonight.
5:48 pm
the team. redskins are here. the game will be played. and it is not a great set up. the final pre-season game if you want to go check out the game be prepared for maybe a tough ride with areas of rain heavy throughout the evening. north and east. and a few and squalls, nothing dramatic. it is wet and there is widespread street flooding underway in pinellas and lesser amounts of rain. the models do indicate a break in the rain in a few hours and probably more rain arriving as the storm starts to parallel and get closer to the state. 10 inches.
5:49 pm
and i'm concerned with the line from the yucatan channel all the way around the center of the storm. this is on the east side. and watching this band. that t that gets over us, we can easily peck up another 5 to 10. that's the concern to be watching radar tomorrow and later tonight to see where this band goes it could miss us and come on shore. tough to be exact on that. can you see the weather is all on the east there is nothing on the west side. 1004 milli bars. 45 and picking up speed. moving east northeast. confident about the track. i don't think anything whacky will happen. going up to tallahassee where they near hurricane force winds. they had a hurricane up there and hurricane kate kind of
5:50 pm
and warnings are up from the anclote river. and inside that line. there is a hurricane watch currently in effect. here midafternoon and another cycle comes up tomorrow night and tides are running about 1 to 3 feet above normal. that's what we had during collin and a south and southwest wind. it will cause flooding. the highest likelihood is there could be flooding and along the gulf where it is shallow up in the big bend area. tomorrow increasing wind. the wind will be a big problem. there will be squalls around near the coast.
5:51 pm
83. left over tropical moisture this weekend. that means more showers the question is. will they use the pirate ship tonight? >> that may be the way they get out. welcome out here a very soggy night of football the fourth and final pre-season game the bucs taking on the redskins. it is a steady downpour. look a the crew here at raymond james keeping this protected. the sidelines have been draining well it should be okay. a little concern they are pulling the tarp off. this very exposed the field. and hopefully too much water does not build up because injuries are always a concern when you have the weather like this. this will be important one that
5:52 pm
starters for the bucs or the redskins for that matter. the guys in danger of getting cut, this is the biggest game of of their career. and position with the wide receivers ten players competing for six spots. among the challengers jonathan krause. you have bernard reedy and kenny bell. there in the mix. they will keep four safetys, smith he is looking to make an impression and in the return game a dirk koetter says the guys are always analyzed at practice he wants to see it transfer over on the game field. >> there is a different level and we have different tempos and you play pre-season. some guys can make plays in practice. don't make plays in a game. >> and top to bottom whether
5:53 pm

5:54 pm
storing and bradley junior doubles. and scoring another run. boston takes the rubber match and the series 8-6 is the final. back here we wanted to be down on the field to experience the element so that you at home and in the studio could experience it through us. they made us hang out here in the mercedes benz facility, you look so >> yes embroidered leather backed seats.
