caused mudslides and flooding. and mike, you called it an enduring weather event with wavwave after wave of rain. >> the i best chance of seeing e rain is later evening and into the morning that to come. this is the hilton beach cam, the time lapse view, and you see the breezes at the beach and waves of 2 to 4 feet, and as the showers rolled on through, there were less and less people on the beach. here is how it looks on sky tower radar. that band of rain setting up off
making its way back. it's already raining out towards cedar key, and it would look like it would arrive within the next three or four hours or, so and so best chance for rain again tonight, again into the day on monday would be the farther north and west you go, and you look and see the moisture sitting out over the gulf waiting to make its way on shore. here is the waiter view,ll part of this area of low pressure. nontropical in nature but still a lot of moisture and even if this doesn't develop into a tropical depression, it's still going to bring in a ton of rain, and sure enough, parts of big bend have picked up 10 inches of rain in just the past couple of days. so here is how this plays out. the bands of rain come on shore,
then more rain on the coast extending toward tampa, and heavy rain pushing in tomorrow morning and into the afternoon, and then everything pushing farther south and east and that gives you to the south and inland a better chance of seeing that rain a little bit later on in the afternoon. and then kind of the shower return once again, and so we get a bit of a break and it looks like night and into tuesday. here is a look at the rain chances for the day on monday. the highest rain chances the closurcloser to the coast you gd then 60% extending down through sarasota and 50% north and east of that, but another day of elevated rain chances. don't pay attention necessarily to the numbers but where the
looks like the heaviest may just be out of our area but still hefty rainfall totals. 3, 4, 5, 6 inches of rain possible and once again closer to the coast over the next couple of days. here is a look at the highs today, because of the showers and the cloud cover, the highs you get hold it off to a bit later in the hap arcadia, and expect a similar break-down in temperatures tomorrow. current temperature, 79, dewpoint of 75. don't expect the temperatures to drop off a whole lot more heading through the overnight period. another warm and steamy night and the dewpoints are sitting in the mid 70's or so.
way of showers, earlier in the day especially closer to the coast, 84 and a little bit later in the day as you head a bit farther south and east, this is the pattern for the next couple of days. and then we watch the area of low pressure start to make its way out and i think we drop down to about 40% chance thursday, friday, saturday and sunday and then we'll see the higher rain chances a bit farther inland. lloyd? >> all right, there's a lot of controversy about the u.s. paying honey to o iran and whether or not it was random for u.s. prisoners. -- he is a long shot to make this club but he is making the most of his shot with the bucs. introducing dunkin's new cold brew coffee,
