6:16 am
andreas fault hasn't ruptured since 1690. scary stuff. i have to give lindsay credit because yesterday she said there's a hint of fall in the air. it's a little nicer. i was like she's crazy. if you were in the shadows yesterday prenoon, i felt it. you were right. >> lindsay: in our southern counties they never got it. by the afternoon for us, humidity kind of swung in from the east. so this morning no fall, but next weekend will feel even better than yesterday morning. so i'm not crazy. i'm talking truth for next weekend. 75 this morning in tampa. we have a light northeast wind and dew points climbed literally 5 to 10 degrees. with it it's comfortable. we had big rain last night in some spots. we show you those rainfall totals as we look at our 4:00 and 6:00 a.m. temperatures. it's a muggy 79 in
6:17 am
chase. 70 is nice for you in brooksville. it's not as comfortable as yesterday at this time. it's 72 in arcadia, and haines city at 73 degrees. look at that dark green, which went from about here to here meaning all of our views area sl a little muggier out the door. tallahassee and panama city feels good. even gainesville and jacksonville feeling felt yesterday. instead of a light onshore wind, we have around east wind. i expect it to remain dry for the boaters. last night took most of the day for the storms to glide in from the east. in tampa you're saying what rain? lakeland 2, 3, 4 inches and into eastern hillsborough had severe storms near severe limits in anna maria last night. some areas had 2 to 3 inches of rain.
6:18 am
with the easterly component to want winds, a 40% chance of those storms will arrive. as they push west, where will they line up? at raymond james possible lightning delays. 87 degrees at kickoff with scattered storms developing. stay alert. this is a look at hurricane matthew. this is an unusual major hurricane. this is not the hurricane. that's a separate piece of convection. this is the hurricane itself. you can see hints of that cycles. it's slow to move. it's up only barely moving northwest. with the shift in the models mainly east of jamaica, i'm concerned with the amount of rain for portions of haiti and eastern cuba because of the mountain yus terrain and slow movement, landslides and mudslides are likely. 1 150-mile-per-hour winds at 5:00 a.m.
6:19 am
if this makes a beeline between cuba and haiti, hopefully the strongest wind is offshore. on the east side of the storm, some of our models predict over 2 feet of rain is possible for portions of haiti not to mention a big storm surge as the storm comes in from the south. then we talk about the bahamas, major hurricane over warm waters here. how close does it get to florida and the carolinas? most models east of florida but close enough for squalls on the east coast. so a sliver of our ste computer models getting more agre agreement. i'll show you the long rain. here's monday and tuesday, big problems for the caribbean where hurricane warnings in effect. this is the gray icon, but look at a couple of models, how they bring it really close to the carolinas, late week and possibly next weekend. can't rule out hurricane impacts in the u.s. just yet. as we discussed, we keep watching and waiting, we need to. there's a lot of complicated
6:20 am
a clear-cut forecast mid to late week. and 89 with scattered storms nd- developing. hot and humid, and stormy and summer summerlike. overnight we're quiet and back to morning sun on monday. rain chances the highest of the week monday at 50%. northeast wind is at 10 knots today. here's the seven-day forecast. if you like lower humidity it may move in late week, but it will be breezy. i'll ler gradually wednesday through friday. >> alcides: thanks, lindsay. a chance of a lifetime for those who served our country.

6:32 am
wauchula and 79 in st. pete. we have the east wind taking over and i'm not concerned with coastal rain this morning. in fact, most of the storms are well after 3:00 across the inland zones. lower humidity north of a front still hung up north of the area, and so we're in the muggy sector here. rain chances today about 40% to 50%. down to our south, all eyes on category 4 hurricane matthew. hurricane hunters will be out there later ts need them to help us fine-tune the forecast mid to late week. our greatest concern in the short term is for the caribbean. this is going to be a huge storm with lots of impacts for them. 150-mile-per-hour winds moving northwest at 5. pressure is low, really slow-moving hence the potential for just ridiculous paamounts o rain. yesterday the track was closer to jamaica and today it's closer to southeast cuba and haiti on the eastern side of where this
