4:25 am
even without methotrexate. rask your rheumatologist t about xeljanz. look at the difference in temperatures from where we were yesterday at this time. we're talking about a pretty remarkable difference here. 10 to 15 degrees warmer across the area. we do have quite a bit of cloud cover. that is part of the reason we're a bit warmer this morning as we're starting off the day the clouds acted like a blanket keeping us a little toastier. we have partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies across tampa bay. even encountered a few showers early this morning. it's been very light rain but something you may encounter as you head out the door. right now titan doppler radar scanning the skies, nice and dry. should say rain-free. you may have uncountiered a sprinkle. you see that little green that
4:26 am
couple of hours. a few showers still on i-75 and southern sarasota county. nothing that is going to be too widespread or too long-lasting. you can see here that the futurecast is showing that slight chance for a few showers, not necessarily showing up in just the right spot, but it is showing us that there's some moisture out there that could reach the ground as some showers. all the gray and white tones, that's the cloud cover. we're going to see a bit more of that today, through the day. again, not a lot of rain but chance for it. as i'm watching what is developing late this evening, some of this we see off-shore could develop into some fog, so again we'll keep a close eye on that overnight and early tomorrow morning. but at this time our visibility is good, the temperatures, so warm for this time of year, 66 degrees in tampa. 63 brandon. 61 bartow. 57 inverness. that's one of the cooler spots. we should be starting in the
4:27 am
our record 85 degrees. we're not going to be near records the next couple of days but certainly well above average for this time of year. starting the day tomorrow in the low 60s and ending at 8 odegrees. very low chances for rain today, tomorrow and wednesday. the next cold front approaches thursday giving us a good round of showers and a few isolated storms possible as well. it will all end very early on friday morning. we clear out and dry out for the weekend. the humidity comes down as well so we'll be comfortably cool with the highs in the mid to upper 60s. morning lows on target with average or at least really close to it. again those low chances for rain may be a sprinkle or brief shower but nothing that should be problematic for your weekend plans. again as we look at florida's most accurate 7-day forecast we have a significant warming trend over the next couple of days. with some below average temperatures for the end of the week and next weekend.
