lots of deep, warm water, no sheer and no dry air to inhibit the intensification. here is the model today it. and it's pretty much in agreement. one spinning it a little bit to the west. what is happening earlier today, a noaa gulfstream 4 mission sampled the atmosphere around the storm and that information goes into the supercomputers and the foras that information is usually a lot more accurate. i'm expecting better forecasting in the next day or two. it should give us a better idea of where this storm is going. and the hurricane center has it has a category 2 approaching cuba, monday into tuesday, but i think before it reaches cuba, it will become a category 3. i agree with this track but notice the spread on the
still watching and any shift to the west would be troublesome for us but for now we are thinking a past east of our state. we'll fine-tune that in the next couple of days. check back with us in a couple of days and our wet weather continues into the first half of next week. i will see you again at about 10:20. >> we'll be waiting, paul, thank you. and just bring it back, that is the message from former coach after someone stole his high school jersey where where it was hanging for a candle lit vigil for the player who died in a boating accident over the weekend. coach landy faedo says some time

go someplace i just get in the car and go, and i can't do that anymore. >> difficult decisions about driving. the two things that experts say you need keep
in mind when you need keep in mind when talking to y i think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell you. i would bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go [bleep] themselves. get him out of here! get him out of here! get the hell out of here! priorities usa action is responsible
travel-related cases. president obama has signed the bill that contained 1.1 billion to fight the virus, and congressman david jolly came back from d.c. and said he doesn't see eye to eye with the governor on how the locations of the cases are being reported to the public. >> i would advocate for more information to the public. allow the public to make decisions themselves and their families and that includes the traveling public. >> when it comes to the new funds jolly says it's a good first step but he will fight to get more money if need be. >> now it looks like the city of st. pete is facing its first lawsuit over the release of wastewater during hurricane hermine.
filed a lawsuit and they say there is no guarantee the city won't have to release wastewater again during a heavy rain event but steps are being taken to try to reduce the severity. >> what we can do is be as prepared as we can, and if we have large volumes of water that we do every we can to treat that water for if there are any overflows or discharges that at least it's t water that overflows and discharge and that it is not raw sewage. >> the lawsuit calls for upgrades to the system and money for damage caused by the discharge. next week the city council will talk about the possibility of reopening the closed albert whitted water treatment facility. >> and either way, paul, we are likely to get something from
>> we may get something good, if it passes to the east, like lower humidity next weekend, but in the meantime, no low humid, humidity, this is pure tropical air. check this out, it's a tropical thursday. sunset on hudson beach with tall clouds, and check that out, sunset at dover. and the clouds brought with them bands of rain that have moved across the peninsula. we are still adding days to our 90-plus records. look at this. tampa has been 90 or above 102 days. the average is 73. st. pete, 55 days. the bay he helping here, and
the gulf not helping much. 112 days 90 or above and the long-term arrange is 58, almost double that, it's hard to do, it really is. and so today, west wind, lots of tropical moisture, and every once in a while some energy goes by. we'll see a lull tonight, and i think we'll see more west winds tomorrow, with rounds of showers and thunderstorms inland, most of the time it will be rain free, with y will be coming down good. that has diminished quite a bit but very heavy rain for our viewers in manatee and costal areas. rain by punta gorda, and we zoom in and it's not really much at all. north port and englewood, and storms off the coastline. one more stop is off the coast
small showers that will move on shore late tonight. judging by the satellite presentations and we'll get into advisories at 11:00, the storm is intensifying. we call this a central dense overcast and it's a sign of an intensifying stormers and as we said at 10:00, the forecast as it passes near cuba is to be a cat 2. thank is willing to may it should be at least a cat 3 before it gets buy the island, and so matthew is 14.2, 68.1, p top winds at 75 ad 98 pressure, probably lower than that. and it's going to spin around the this, that is why it's making a ar right hand turn.
are at risk and then we'll have to watch for the new data to come into the supercomputer models and we'll see if there is a shift to the west. right now there is pretty good agreement of a storm parallelling us and on the east side it's lo a lot worse than on the west side, and so let's hope this storm wide berth. this is thi thursday of next we, and the gfs model has the storm up in canada on saturday at 10:00, and the european model was monday, tuesday, wednesday and thursday has the storm over the bahamas.
is bahamas. you see why the forecast can be tough? you are dealing with models that are both very good but are all over the boards. and at this point next weekend, that is when the dry air comes in on the backside, and it may introduce a dryer and cooler air mass next week. we'll talk about that of course, when the storm goes by. first things first. costalho tonight and down to 78. tomorrow, one more day of a west wind. now, the wind p flip-flops over the weekend, as matthew impact the wind flow, and as flows go from east to west on saturday, there will be often storms sunday, monday and tuesday with rain chances fairly high for early october and then hopefully some dry weather arrives late
on. we'll have the 11:00 advisory coming up at like 11:00. >> funny how that works! all right, paul, thanks. and a possible break for breweries. >> if you love craft beers, you will love this. the plan that could ?? halloween excitement is back at dunkin' with 2 dozen donuts for $12.99. drizzled, decorated, and all dressed up for the season,
new at ten.. can congress >> new at 10:00, can congress agree on beer? craft brews in the tampa bay area are certainly hoping so. a proposal is gaining steam to cut taxes in half specifically for small breweries. >> evan, how jobs? it apparently would, right? >> well, yeah, mark. it's interesting. in the last two years this place has been open they have gone from having two employees to 28 and their ability to grow more may well depend on whether they are hire more people to pump out the beer. >> a craft brewery is a place where dreams -- become real, especially when you have started
>> for the last three years i have had more fun than ever in my life. >> they sell 10,000 barrels aa year, and he pays $7 a barrel to the federal government on the excise tax but who does it hit harder? him or budweiser. >> it hits them. >> and congress -- yes, congress could help. >> i would hire more people, some more brewers and try to make and sell more beer. >> three daughters brews in st. pete has 53 employees and sells 14,000 barrels of beer a year, and they could save nearly
one more sales person out on the streets. >> and in tampa bay, the number of breweries has grown to 63, and yet three daughters says less than 3% of all of the beer sold in tampa bay is craft, but any little opening helps them to live their dream. >> if we can get that bar outside of orlando to carry just one craft and see that there is value in what we are able to produce, the rest of us wil fall in behind. >> and you talk about the potential for by partisanship, industry lobbyists say that more than half of the senate is already on the record supporting this legislation. >> it doesn't surprise me at all. evan, thank you very much. all right, horror for a woman in los angeles. >> a kidnapping case is rocking the area.
