eat moss from trees. a crystal river wildlife volunteer caught this guy using his flipper to climb high enough for the low hanging snack. by the way, the spring is open for swimmers and boaters today. but, that status may change tonight if more manatees move in. he is getting a nice afternoon snack there staying warm. for us, it has been a bit warmer overall. highs will be closer to normal this weekend. still a little bit below average, but not bad. we are tracking a weak front. but this is not going to have a huge impact on the weather. it mostly brings a few clouds saturday morning. the next storm system that brings us rain, an area of low pressure moves in monday night into tuesday bringing shower and storm chances there. this evening pretty quiet. beautiful blue skies. winds will be light out of the southwest. as we head into the afternoon
4:16 pm
upper 60s close to 70 degrees. we will make it into the 70s . notice the mostly sunny skies continuing. a gorgeous ending to the week. not a cloud in the sky. a few clouds with a little more moisture in south florida. we have dry air moving in. that is why we have had the deep blue color if you are stepping outside, you will enjoy it. this evening the clear skies will stick around for us. winds will be lighter through the overnight hours thanks to the high pressure sitting right on top of us. so as you wake up tomorrow morning, i would recommend dressing in layers because starting off in the morning hours it will be chilly still in the 40s . you will want a jacket. but by the afternoon hours, that is when we make it back up into the upper 60s close to 70 degrees. it will feel a lot more comfortable, even warm at times if you are in the sun. moving into saturday morning,
4:17 pm
not expecting rain. just clouds. the north winds kick in behind this system and the front is long gone. temperatures are going to stay mild in the upper 60s . it will be mostly sunny by then. valentine's day, it will be a little breezier. northeast winds moving in. looking at mostly sunny skies and great snuggle weather with temperatures in the upper 60s there. so the big question, when will it actually warm up? temperatures have been below average for a while. they will continue to stay that way for a little bit longer but there is some light at the end of the tunnel as we head into the end of next week. the ridge will build in. i noticed the temperatures jumping up over the line. we will reach into the mid 70s so the warming trend will continue as we head into next weekend. so, warmer temps will eventually move in. for now, we are looking at mild temperatures in the upper 60s through this weekend. notice our rain chances best monday night into tuesday morning. >> good news. thanks julie.

4:48 pm
you can share your photos with me on my facebook page or twitter. i always love to see when you are sending in the photos. the reason we are dealing with the clear skies, and the bright blue color is because some pretty dry air has moved in the upper levels of the atmosphere. under water vapor imagery, that red color is the dry air. right on top of us. that is why we don't have any clouds around today. you can see across the entire tampa bay area. it is looking clear as we take a step back. we have a little more moisture in south florida near the keys. we are tracking a little bit of cloud cover this evening but it is quiet across the southeast. temperatures this afternoon, definitely more comfortable. 70 in plant city. 66 in brooksville. up to 61 in crystal river. a little cooler along the coast. for the rest of this evening the clear skies will continue. the light winds will continue. temperatures are going to fall
