6:11 am
pand even though you see that prain on the way, it's not going pto get here until tomorrow in pgeneral so i think today just a plot of cloud cover with high ptemperatures sneaking back up pclose to 80. ptomorrow yes. two million, four hundred thousand, fifty-three grains of sand. exactly two hours, for steak 'n shake's half-price happier hour. we'll never miss half-price, hand-dipped milkshakes again. but master, happier hour is from two to five now. pardon me? they added an hour. ...two mill - great, i've lost count. p happy hour just got happier. p get half-priced winter shakes,r now from two to five.

6:14 am
pstill starting like this, i have pmore 70s than 60s on the map and pall of that goes all the way to psouthern georgia. pthen it abruptly ends. psee the blue in the top pleft-hand corner of the screen? pthose are temperatures in the p40s so obviously there's a cold pfront between here and there and pit's slowly sliding our way. pin the grand scheme of things, pwe're running seven to 14 pdegrees warmer than yesterday in pthe 6:00 hour of "good day" plus pwe don't have the fog because of pthat southeasterly wind which panywhere from six to nine, 13 pmile-per-hour winds. pthat's high enough to keep the patmosphere stirred up and not pallow that fog to form. pnot only that but we don't have psea fog. pnow i have all kinds of good pnews for you. pit's mild and we don't have any pfog to contend with. pwe do have the steady stream of pmid to upper level cloud cover pwhich we're going to see move pthrough throughout the day ptoday.
6:15 am
pthunderstorms. pit's big ones, too, in alabama, pnow squeezing in towards pgeorgia. pthis part of a line stays to our pnorth so what we're going to get pis the bottom part of this line pof showers and thunderstorms and pit's slowly working across the pgulf and will be here tomorrow. pwe'll have to deal with that pround of rain tomorrow. pi know. pit's the first day of the state pfair. pi think a couple of years ago it praped on the first day of the pstate fair as well. pthen after this front moves pthrough, it quiets down for pabout 30 hours and then we're pexpecting another line of rain pto come through the area psaturday afternoon. pexpect the low to develop psomewhere down here and move pacross the southern part of our pstate, bringing with it more prain for us. pnow yesterday it looked like, pokay. pit will be a sunday morning pdeal. pnow it looks like a saturday
6:16 am
pdeal so we're just pushing the ptiming by 12 hours or so. p79 degrees for a high ptemperature today. pit's going to be breezy, it's pgoing to be warm. pmaybe one or two isolated pshowers. ut a rain chance today of 20% pso it's not great under mostly pcloudy skies. p60s. pand then breezy with showers and pthunderstorms likely tomorrow. pi think you'll see a line of prain move through the area ptomorrow with a high temperature paround 73 degrees. pboating today, moderate chop. pno sea fog to contend with but pseas running two to three feet, pespecially later this afternoon. phere's the second round of rain psaturday into sunday. pwe'll squeeze out of the deal pand with this fast, progressive attern, we may get back in the prain again by the middle of next pweek. pvanessa? p>>vanessa: all right. pthank you.

6:39 am
pthese are normal high ptemperatures which is so wacky pthis morning. p71 in bradenton, sarasota, pvenice at 72. pa little bit better, mid to pupper 60s, some spots in polk pcounty through highlands county pbut a very, very mild, much pwarmer start than it was pyesterday. peight to 13 degrees warmer for pthe most part than it was pyesterday. pand also, we had a little bit pmore wind. pyesterday the winds were very plight. pwe had all of that fog. pnow that we have some wind, pguess what? pwe don't have the fog around so pthat's good. pfog-free morning. pwe have winds five to 12 miles pan hour coming in from the psoutheast. pthat's the good news, right? pthe wind takes care of that. pnot so good news is that psoutheast wind also brings phumidity up so the dew points pthis morning are running sky phigh in the upper 60s to around p70 degrees. pas we wait for this cold front pto come through. pthe top half of this front preally brought some strong to
6:40 am
ptornados in mississippi, palabama, parts of kentucky. pthere are no watches out but we pdo have a tremendous amount of pheavy rain moving toward patlanta, southward going down to pmobile, alabama and southeast of pnew orleans. pas this line slowly works ptowards the east, it's going to pget hung up a little bit povernight. pi know what you're thinking pbecause it's already past new porleans, it should be here soon pbut the top half of the front is pgoing to go swinging through. pthe bottom half is going to lag pbehind and that's why i think pour rain doesn't come through phere until sometime late morning ptomorrow or early afternoon so pwe are going to get rain. pwe may get a round of heavy rain pto come through, but it won't be puntil tomorrow. pthat kind of leaves today in pthat warm, humid setup with ptemperatures back up close to 80 pdegrees. plook at this rain. pthis is solid but it's not snow. pthey had the snow yesterday in pthe upper midwest. psnow bank is really close to
