6:15 am
i-4 at polk parkway, that typical foggy morning here, and get those low beams on. take it a little slower than you normally would. no delays at all. back to our other camera on i-4 in tampa, this is where we're seeing a delay not because of fog. just our morning rush hour. you can see that as you head west towards the downtown interchange in tampa you have heavier traffic building. this is typical let's check the drive time. eight minutes from 75 to 275 along i-4 westbound. that's a normal drive time, but that will pick up, and it usually gets to 15 minutes during the peak of rush hour. the rest of the interstates for the green. that's the case for pinellas county. if you are traveling along east lake road or u.s. 19 in the next couple of minutes, you haven't picked up just yet. it really is a good time to get out the door if you are
6:16 am
maybe heading south towards clearwater. in sarasota county a new accident, and this -- i am sorry. this is manatee county with the line with sarasota. this is at somerset avenue in the bradenton area. south of there in sarasota there is a crash that i am on top of along northbound i-75 north of fruitville road. this is a hit-and-run accident. you do have police on the shore. if you have problems on the roads be sure to send me an email. i am your road warrior and i will help you with any af safety issues. email me @road warrior at wtsp.com. the fog looks better? it is in some spots. it has improved a little bit towards lakeland. now you can at least see your hand in front of your face, but not much more. be careful into polk county. we will see that clear out in the next few hours, but it will be replaced by at least slight rain chances.
6:17 am
to see a little bit of light rain moving into citrus county. so over near crystal river a couple sprinkles possible in the next few minutes, but the bulk of the rain will take an hour to an hour and a half to work its way onshore. we are starting to see the little spit-outs of the showers ahead of that main front. 69 degrees in st. petersburg. very warm. very humid. there is a lot of moisture for this front to work with. unfortunately, we don't see much in the way of rain out of it. we are getting the fog parked wesley chapping visibility -- wesley chapel visibility is patchy. it may be fine as you are heading out. by the time you get on the roadways, that could be thicker. give yourself a few extra minutes so you can slow down if you need to. shower chances progress to the south. we are not talking of this time around. a couple of showers in and out within five, ten minutes similar to the last couple of days, but just coming in from a different direction.
6:18 am
along the front. shower chances for the bay area start to get going after midday, and then by the time we head into the evening there is not much moisture left than drier air starts filtering in behind it, which means a cooler start to the day tomorrow. temperatures are dropping much more quickly as we clear things out overnight. now, with the cloud cover we still hit 80 degrees today because our rain chances are definitely on the low end of things and we are starting off so warm. this time tomorrow it will be cooler. so the more cold natured folks, you are probably goin a lot of 50s out there. 60 for the bay area. this isn't the only chance for rain we are tracking. we will watch another system coming in as we head into the weekend. we start tracking that through texas, louisiana, and then it looks like monday into tuesday it's going to bring more widespread rain chances back into our forecast. we are calling for at least a coverage of around 30% that may go up, especially for tuesday. this has been kind of backtracked in terms of timing a couple of times.
6:19 am
