6:49 am
less than two feet. i want to point out it's not a good idea to hop in the water at the beach. the water is churned up. we have report of bacteria at the airport beaches. we are in the low 70s from brooksville. upper 70s from tampa to sarasota. no fog to show you. but because we're so moist can't rule out cloud cover. good visibility but mist on the windshields out the door depending where you live. we have a stalled front to the north. this is attached to hermine, which is no longer t nature. what is attached to it is still a deep plume of tropical moisture for tampa points westward. the further south you live near the coast today the lower the rain chances you will see. all we need to do is bring in heating and that will give way to 30-40% rain chance. storms are shifting inland. heavy rain means more flooding. good news for the northeast we have a very intense no longer tropical system east of the region, most of the rain with this is staying offshore. the problem is it will slow
6:50 am
days. so with that, the huge low churning and churning means the shift of the on shore winds. a lot of strong wave heights. coastal flooding. gusty winds. current wind gusts this morning are only near 21. as we head to monday, tuesday and wednesday the wind gust forecast with the strongest winds offshore. near the cape. look at this. overnight monday to tuesday, 50-mile-per-hour wind gusts. winds shifting on wednesday. then thursday the exit. check out the waves. feet. not a boating weekend or beach weekend by the area. by thursday shifting east. posttropical hermine moving east/northeast at 12. 65-mile-per-hour winds. then it gets hung up as we don't have much steering in the atmosphere. so approaching hurricane force monday and tuesday. then slowly shifting toward the east. this will get out of our hair. elsewhere in the tropics we are nice and quiet. i have a disturbance moving west to dry air.
6:51 am
local weather. what we'll see today will be extra storms. take the heating to move those in. they will be shifting inland this afternoon. 89 for the high. more heat today. any storms across the interio should wind down by 9:00 or 10:00. partly cloudy overnight. nice start to the day on labor day. more scattered storms pushing west. 90 for a high tomorrow with 50% rain chance. good news for the boaters. light chop two feet. let's head through the next seven days. lower rain chances on tuesday, wednesday, thursday. more afternoon storm coverage as well. we will be watching the anclote river as it will be cresting this afternoon near 25 feet. >> alcides: thank you. still to come, remembering a tampa icon. we have reaction from some of the thousands of people that
