9:19 am
muggy south of i-4. so 77 does not feel comfo comfortable. frostproof. venice at 79. but newport, crystal river. and dew point has dropped a smidge into the mid-60s. and 61. that is a low dew point in tampa. it haven't felt that way in many months, but it will only feel this way for a couple of showers because with an east wind already we pull moisture by the afternoon. south of the front the best chance today, but as rain develops we wind down morning coastal showers. tart inland and push west. sky tower radar not many showers. just offshore of venice and anna maria and the rain is really light. light to moderate hour south of sun city. this may clip ruskin northeast and see if that shower is still
9:20 am
rain chance 30%. sunday and monday they are up there am as they build west and monitoring perhaps a lightning delay if warrant during the buc game tomorrow afternoon. beyond wednesday, the rain chances may be dropping depending on where matthew heads and how strong it is. we are watching that northerly track when it happens. the same trough that brought a somewhat drop in our humidity this morning will help this lift north. if you look at matthew yourself it looks big. a little more lopsided this westerly shear. it is a little weak they are morning only because it is impossible for a category 5 hurricane which it wasn't yesterday to save that strong for that long. we have 155-mile-per-hour winds as of 8 a.m. the track i am showing you as of 5 a.m. all new information in about two thundershowers. moving west at 7. hurricane heners are out there looking for what the winds are like, what the pressure is like in the next update.
9:21 am
to happen some time on sunday. so here is late sunday into monday. here is jamaica. remember watch the whole am cone not just the center line it bringing them a lot of rain and strong winds. down to a 3 which is a mayor hurricane down a 2 and watch the magnitude of how this cone builds out. the margin of error any time we head five days out. gfs and all the models come together and the cone is so big. gfs model near jamaica closer to cuba and near east florida. very close to the carolinas and racing north and east next weekend. look how different this model looks. this is the european. this is this morning. we will call this track further east. more haiti impacts. further of the bahamas but east of florida and lingering late
9:22 am
so which one is correct? we just don't know yet and we need to watch the models and you the data from the hurricane hunters and watch that northerly turn to know how many impacts the u.s. will see and hopefully this stays east. we don't have that confidence. 88 today. a few thunderstorms developing and build west after that coastal rain ends. near 70 tonight. 75 is our average low. 89 is the above average high. rain chances above average at 50% pushing west in the afternoon. a today. winds have shifted out of the northeast and the wind brings back the moisture through monday. the good news if this forecast holds for matthew, we are on the west side which is the dry side. we will actually see pretty pleasant weather if it is true thursday and friday but it will be breezy. >> thank you, lindsay. coming up how a group of high school students will giving a dog a ok, so here are two cans of vegetables... this one i paid for, this one was free.
