6:14 am
p>>dave: now 6:14. plet's talk about the radar here. pthis line of storms approaching pthe coastline should be here pwithin an hour or so. pyesterday the computer models, pthe reliable ones were panning pin as a late morning setup. pthis could be more of an earlier pin the morning type of setup but pwe're concerned about a couple pof individual cells. pyou see the ones here and then pthis one down here which is, pagain, probably going to papproach the pinellas county pcoast, the sunshine skyway in pthe next hour or so. pwe have the ability to, once pagain, look inside some of these articular storms and as they phave approached, every once in a pwhile, the radar has been pdetecting in the lower levels of pthe atmosphere a little protation. pthere's a potential there could
6:15 am
pevery time it starts to happen, pthen it starts to get a little pbit weaker or so. pthat may be from the influence pof the cooler waters as it's papproaching the coastline. pthe dynamics in the atmosphere pare there for rotation and pthat's why we're watching very pclosely. pnow, what you're seeing here, i pswitched modes for you on the pradar. pyou're like, what is this? pthis is the radar looking inside pthe storm and detecting winds. pkeep in mind, as the radar, as pthe radar moves out and away, it pgets back out over the gulf. pit's looking a little higher in pthe storm just due to the pcurvature of the earth. pso this out here may be 8,000, p9,000 feet high. pyou can see gusty winds here pwith some of this as it starts pto work its way back toward the pcoastline. pthat's what we're going to be plooking for if there's going to pbe any rotation, we would detect pit in here. pright now at this very second, pwhile we don't see it, we still
6:16 am
pthe showers work their way. pthese storms work back to the pcoastline. pthis is one cell. pnot only the way this is moving, pit's going to impact hernando pand pasco county in the next 45 pminutes to an hour. pat the very minimum, you get pgusty winds, thunder, lightning pand very heavy rain which in pcommute. pthat's why you still have a few pminutes if you walk out the door pnow and get to where you're pgoing but please, keep your pskytower radar app handy. pthis looks like a pretty strong pthunderstorm as well. pthis is further to the south. pbradenton, sarasota, st. etersburg, sunshine skyway, get pyour bearings here. pthis storm is also rapidly pmoving to the east and right now phasn't shown signs of rotation pbut it's very strong storm and ponce again, the dynamics and the patmosphere are set up this pmorning. pone or two of these storms could pbegin to rotate. pso at the very minimum, heavy
6:17 am
pbe detected as the storm moving pin the next hour to hour and a phalf. ptornado watch is out for areas pnorth of tampa and includes pbasically every county to the pnorth. pright up 75 going up through arts of georgia as well so pyou've got pasco, hernando, pcitrus, sumter county until p10:00. pthis is one of those watches, pthough, it's not going to last puntil 10:00 because once that pline moves through, it will pstart to drop some of the pcounties from the watch. pit doesn't mean you can't have a ptornado outside this box. pit doesn't work like that. pit just means that the best pdynamics are set up that in this articular spot is where we're pgoing to likely see one. p but the slight risk of severe pweather really goes from psarasota all the way up into the pcarolinas and where the pstrongest, largest storms are plikely to be today are going to pbe up in the northeastern parts pof north carolina so yesterday, pi'm sure you've heard there are preports of big storms in
6:18 am
pdeadly storms, i think that pfocus will be in the carolinas pthis afternoon. pwe still have that slight chance pfor severe weather early on ptoday. pi think our threat will be over pquick enough this morning, pmid-morning to late morning that peverything will then shift to pthe east coast. pthe other thing is, it's windy pand warm outside. pthose south winds are pumping in pand we're at 72 degrees out at ptampa international with winds panywhere from 10 to 20 miles an phour and we had wind gusts in psarasota of 33 miles per hour. pfolks, that's a pretty intense pwind out ahead of the front. ponce the front comes swinging pthrough, the winds are going to pshift back to the northwest and pthat's going to drag in some pcolder air. pso call it a one, two punch. pstorms this morning, a few of pthem strong. pthen this afternoon, cooler air pstarts to settle in and it's pjust going to get cooler and pcooler over the next couple of pdays until our temperatures are
6:19 am
pkeep your skytower radar app. pyou can you can't sit around all pmorning. pyou have places. pi get that. pso just know if there's warnings pissued, you can get them over pthe phone. pif you're at home, stay tuned pbecause we're not leaving you puntil the storm leaves the pviewing area. ptonight we'll turn much cooler pand continue breezy with a low pof 52 and then breezy and cooler ptomorrow with a high temperature pof around 64 degrees. pand you say, well, that's cool. pthat's friday's high ptemperature. ponly 60. pthen a slight rebound for psaturday, back up to 63 and peventually head back to normal pby the beginning of next week. pokay? p>>laura: okay. pand as we monitor the severe pweather that's headed for the ptampa bay area, we want to show pyou this. pit's what a town home in ensacola looked like yesterday. aul shared it on facebook pyesterday. pnow this is what it looks like. pisn't that something?
6:20 am
papart from the front steps, this pwas part of some town homes. p>>russell: tornado dropped over pi-10 tearing down trees and pshutting down the interstate. pthere are reports that several eople are hurt. psearch and rescue operations are punderway. pthe same storm system is blamed pon three deaths in louisiana and pmississippi. pdave is watching all of it. pwe'll check in with vanessa to psee if any road problems have palready begun. p>>vanessa: nothing big. pof course, we mentioned the pskyway bridge. pthat's being directly impacted pfrom the weather we're seeing pright now and of course, we're pgoing to watch it as the showers pmove in and see how the roads pfair but so far, so good right pnow. pwe're checking in on polk county pat this point, i-4 is where pwe're checking out kathleen proad. pit looks light as far as the pvoks out here and we are running pup to speed in that area. plooks like we're also running up pto speed if you're heading peastbound of i-4 in eastern phillsborough county, 75 to pbranch forbes road is sitting at pan eight minute ride.

p>>dave: top 'o the morning to pyou. pwe've been waiting all morning pfor a line of thunderstorms to pwait onshore. pnow we can see some of the pheavier rain in citrus county, phernando county, pasco county as pwell as a little bit of plightning and thunder along the pcoastline as well. pwithin this line, as you go back ptoward the west, a few miles off poffshore. pit's a little further to the psouth. pas this works onshore, at the pvery minimum you're going to phave heavy rain. pof course, lightning and gusty pwinds but the dynamics are there pfor the potential of rotation pwithin this line. pit includes pasco county, p10:00. pi hope it doesn't last until p10:00 but this is one of the

pclosely as these individual pcells begin to work their way ponshore. pthere's no good time to get psevere weather and i get that. pbut this is one of the worst ptimes because people are on ptheir deadline that they have to pget out the door. pi can tell you that your pskytower radar app can help you pout. pif you have to go, at least you pcan get the warnings on your hone. pif you have to walk away, you pknow, i completely understand pbut for those of you hanging paround, if you could wait panother hour or so, just let pthis line blow through. pweather conditions could improve pbefore that point. pthis is a very large pthunderstorm and i've been pwatching this very closely. pit's still a good maybe 70, 80 pmiles offshore so it does have ptime to weaken a bit but the pradar itself has been detecting pthe past 30 minutes or so just a psmidge of rotation within this articular cell and we know that pby looking inside the particular pstorm.
6:46 am
pthe radar to a different mode. pit's called a velocity mode. pwinds, red color winds moving paway from the radar and green pwill be toward the radar. pin the bottom left-hand corner pof your screen, there's a light pgreen color here. pthose are some strong winds, up pto 10,000 feet and it doesn't ptake much, especially when you pget the down drafts and the pthunderstorm to actually bring psurface. pat the very least, when this pmoves onshore, heavy rain, pthunder, lightning and gusty pwinds with that potential for an pisolated tornado so here is st. etersburg. pyou have bradenton, sarasota. pthis little bit waits offshore pbut it's rapidly moving to the peast and i suspect in the 7:00 phour, maybe late 7:00 hour for pthis cell to work its way ponshore. pone more time, your tornado pwatch includes areas to the
6:47 am
pand i think for the large part pof the day, the severe weather pthreat is going to be up in the pcarolinas. pespecially -- i mean, especially pto northeast north carolina. pthey run a moderate risk for pthat severe weather. pfor us it's going to be a quick pthunderstorm this morning, gusty pwinds, like the potential for psome severe weather but then pafter it moves through, the rest pof the day for us is going to be pokay. pit's warm, it's windy outside pright now. pno doubt there's some wind gusts pthat have been up to 30, 33 pmiles per hour. pthat's what we had in sarasota pwith that south wind. pafter this line moves through, pthe winds will shift to the psouthwest and then late today, pthey'll shift to the northwest pas we push the actual cold front pthrough the area and then pdramatic cooldown. pwe hit 80 degrees yesterday and pwe're talking about only hitting p60 for a high on friday so pobviously a big difference for
6:48 am
pmy big concern is this line of pthunderstorms getting ready to pmove through the area over the pnext couple of hours. pbehind it the weather does quiet pdown so morning storms, a few pstrong. pwindy in general, even behind pthis front as temps make it to pthe mid 70s. ptonight 52 the overnight low and ptomorrow, i struggle to make it pback in the mid 60s and i think pyou'll really feel the brunt of pthe cool air once we start pgetting into the morning hours pof friday. p49 degrees for a low. pthere's your high of only 60 for pfriday afternoon. pthen 44 on saturday, 45 on psunday. pagain, hang with us. pwe're not going anywhere until pthat whole line of storms clears pthe viewing area, vanessa. p>>vanessa: you'll be watching pthat very closely, dave. pthank you. p6:48 and right now we have a plook at 275 southbound. pwe have a driver reported paccident along busch boulevard. pwe haven't seen anything pofficial over f.h.p. and pscanning some fdot cameras of
6:49 am
pable to see anything in the way pof a crash but it looks pexceptionally slow for this time pof morning along southbound 275. p75 to i-4 is a 23 minute ride. pwe've been seeing travel times pfluctuate between yellow and pred. pit doesn't look like the delay pis letting up. pthe very least, you'll want to pleave early if you have to head pthis way, but it looks like you pshould see a few minutes between pthe stretch of bearss avenue and pbusch boulevard. ptake florida avenue in the psouthbound direction. pif you have to hop back on the pinterstate after that point, pthat will work well. pseminole drivers, reports of a pvehicle that's driven off the proadway and onto a pond. psounds like all of this is going pto be on the shoulder, certainly plaw. pthere are no injuries and the pdriver is out of that vehicle. pofficials with the tampa police pdepartment are saying that psomebody shined a laser into a ptimes.
