7:19 am
pinellas county, you will start to deal with some shower activity and then by the afternoon, it will start to shift inland. we still have a lot of moisture in the atmosphere, and we are not going to go from the rain chance yesterday to nothing. we are going to slowly transition it back through the holiday weekend. a lot of mid- to upper avenues this morning. wesley chapel, new port richey, clearwater, st. petersburg, bradenton, sarasota. i mean, mid- to upper 70s not bad, right? we have 70s all the way through ta near 80 in pensacola. in the mid-80s as you are down into portions of the keys with, again, some cloud cover and that southwest wind just drifting those showers ever so close to the coastline. today will not be a washout; however, we will see a lot of cloud cover, and in general, those rain chances run about 60%. especially in our northern counties. it looks like -- you see this band of moisture. this is by the way thunderstorm, of course, h

moisture trailing back and setting up shop to the north of us. the northern counties have a better bet of some rain today and we will squeeze some showers across the state and slowly throughout the weekend begin to drop those rain chances. this storm by the way, it's going to lose its tropical characteristics, and right now it is moving at a decent clip, say 20, 21 miles per hour at a forward speed and will stall out south of southern new england, and sit there, and just do loops for a forecasting nightmare for the northeast because they are going to have clouds. they are going to have high surf, they are going to have beach erosion for days and days and days. head to and in the next half hour we will track it for you those headed up to the northeast for the next few days. meantime unsettled with a high of around 85 degrees. mostly cloudy and kind of damp and muggy overnight and our low near 77 degrees.
7:21 am
few storms tomorrow. and your high temperature around 89 degrees. moderate chop today, still a few lingering effects out here in the gulf but not too bad. light chop tomorrow. light chop for monday as well. and your next seven days show you. rain chances drop to 40% and eventually by the middle of next week, we will kick them back to 30%, jen. >> jen: all right, dave, thanks. president obama hags arrived in china for talks on climate change and global on the g-20 summit is expected to be obama's last trip to shaish as president. his focus on america's rel relationship to america's most populous country. >> alcides: fox's reporter has more from china. >> reporter: supposed to represent the global gathering of the economies. china's emergence as a world power. even president obama's validictoy tour. but the sum knit china may well

not on the official agenda at the meetings >> the chinese have scrubbed the agenda of anything controversial. south china sea, cyber, north carolina, you name it. so what i think the president is going to do is talk about the issue and on the sidelines of the event. >> reporter: but talk has yielded precious little when it comes to china. despite a un ruling that it is unlawful, the chinese has continued to expand claims in the south china sea. what began as the construction grown to include the contested scarborough shoals. >> an exchange about areas where we have significant issues. issues like human lives, cyber and maritime issues. >> reporter: that was the president back in march and little has changed since. experts say his tone won't change much in the g-20 but a newly forged relationship between the u.s. and india will give washington the upper hand long after they have left
7:23 am
about this and new dehli and washington will work very closely on the south china sea. >> this trip is really bringing together a number of the president's top priorities for the last seven and a half ye years. >> reporter: priorities including the ongoing fight against cyber intrusions. the leaders for both countries, cyber espionage in september of next year. those crimes not only drive up consumer cost. left uncheck american service personnel at risk. because often economic espionage is really just military espionage by any other name. name. let me give you another check of that. let's say a country, for example, decides to steal intelligence, proprietary information concerning commercial drone delivery systems. well, clearly that can also impact the military application of that technology.
