i have been reading the last couple of days, storm trails, the folks have downloaded it and it gives you instant notification anytime it is severe weather. we get a break from the severe weather threat for the next several days and the next week as we look outside. skies are rather clear from river gate and we are certainly rain-free and with the front coming in tomorrow morning, i think nothing more than maybe a couple of sprinkles north of i- 4. folks, that's it. maybe better chance on friday. temperatures right now, 50s to mid 60s after a high today in the low 80s in lakeland. 81 there and 80 in winter haven and mid-70s closer to the coast. outside right now, mid 60s across most of the viewing area. at least across the metro from clear water to tampa and back to st. pete skies are clear and the winds are light coming in off of the gulf. officially we hit 77. a few degrees above normal and we should be 74 this time of the year.
warmer than that waking up in the morning. another beautiful day. the first day of march every day as nice as the first day of february. we have a front coming in fact two, it won't bring us change and what is more important not a blast of cold air either way. so tomorrow morning 8:00, you start the day, or for that matter well in your day if you are an early riser. maybe a few sprinkles in the northern counties. by lunchtime, they are gone and what is behind it partly cloudy skies and a nice day on thursday. maybe three or four degree cooler. a cool front and not a blast of cold air. not by any stretch of the imagination. later thursday to friday. we get another front and this one has at least a decent chance of giving some measurable rain to the area. not on thursday but on friday. it comes on through. now, we are not talking anything significant, still light trace accumulations but
keep our eyes on and no threat of severe weather with either one of the fronts. i don't think any chances pop until the end of next week in the following week. that's at the earliest. in for a stretch of very nice and ultimately very warm weather. after we get rid of this. temperatures tomorrow afternoon, still on the coolish side. we will go upper 60s to low 70s. interior and especially east of i-75. you will be right back in the upper 70s to near 80s. the cooler air will come on through and you can shave a few degrees off of that by thursday. want to show you some of the long range weather. thursday, look where the cold air is. the front is coming through, we won't have to deal with it. we go through the weekend and then things are quiet. as we start to warm up again and look at this, all of that red color, that is bound to mean warmer air by next week. we will see 80s across most of
end of the week and next week, we see an area of low pressure developing at this point ten days out. sometimes it is like flipping a coin but i do think the rain chances begin to bump up in ten days depending on whether it materializes. but will be there warmer temperatures next week through the week. good weather for the strawberry festival. northwest winds at ten knots and water temperature 63 degrees. a look at florida's most accurate seven day, beautiful forecast. we stay in the mid-70s early on and maybe a few showers on friday. the weekend looks great, 75 and 76. the next week we are close to the 80s. all right. thank you, dennis. the lightning were hoping to head tomorrow to sole
