still along feeder band strung r the state, and we have lost the heating for today, but once in a while with a west-southwest wind there could be showers and thunderstormthunderstorms bumpie utonight, the models are still pretty aggressive predicting that, and so we'll watch but i would not be on tonight there are showers and thunderstorms bumping on shore, and even tomorrow. we wrapped up august on a very wet note. 12.71 for the month. 7.77 is the average. it's been kind of a whacky rainy season. afternoon thunderstorm activity, meh! kind of so, so, but these storms
for 48.87 and if it doesn't rain another drop for the year, we'll still be above last year. rainfall from the storm going back to wednesday, this is incredible. 22.36, and largo, 16.11. almost a baker's dozen in dunedin and the airport had and tia6.83. that is a lot of rain in a couple of days. here was invest 9 99l. we were tracking from this day one. you know that because you heard a lot about it. seemed like it was never going to get going and then finally in the gulf conditions were more conducive to development and this is why we are so concerned
our way, look at this little hook. if you imagine if it was more pronounced and heading east. think it was bad from a hurricane 200 miles west of us? imagine that hurricane making landfall in pasco or hernando, that would be c catastrophic, en at a cat 1. this storm is going to cause it is literally going to spin off of the midco midco mi midatt line, and this is the ultimate spaghetti model, one was back here and this one like this. the escape route out of the northeast breaks down because of the blocking eye, and it could
back to new jersey next week, that is a possibility. 80, dewpoint 76 and a south wind at 8. the rest of tonight? a couple of showers or thundershowers would roll in off of the gulf but not many, and tomorrow, 78. variably cloudy and clouds and sun, but still very soupy, we stay in the mid 80's and more sun, and fewer thunderstorms and that tend should continue on labor day as seven-day forecast, and next week there is actually zero signs of tropical trouble heading our way for the next seven to ten days. >> all right yay, thank you, paul. >> and some of the most memorable moments of hermine came from you. >> we appreciate all of it and

"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 in america. so this is weekend me.

street you see hundreds of people gathering for this protest. we do know the state attorney's office will determine if the deputy's actions were justified or not, but many of these people are calling for his arrest. riggins was shot only one and in the upper body and not in the back as many of the folks here believe. and the sherriff's office did not allow their press conference which is pretty uncommon. and came we were not, which is causing these folks to ask even more questions about what happened, and one other thing, mark, you want to point out. you see a jeep that is crashed near that dollar general, that happened an hour or so ago. not sure if it's related to what happened but we looked up and that car had crashed. no one injured and we know at
