the grass out that much. it is some light rain. it's gonna drift north across i- 4, dover to plant city. we are seeing the last of it now. this is moving from morrisville to los angeles franklin and further off to the north -- up to franklin and further off to the north. i think most of this will go over the 301 corridor. a sprinkle more to the east of you. in polk county we have a couple of showers left over, but mo polk city one little sprinkle left over and that is it. we are talking just enough to put the windshield wipers on for a few seconds or minutes at that point at all. fishhawk a couple sprinkles, too. they are falling apart in the riverview and brand-area. if you are headed out on 60 or heading into town you will run into a sprinkle here the next half hour. that's it. we had more in manatee and sarasota county earlier, especially eastern sarasota and
cap teva right now. some of this will move to venice. you can see a couple of sprinkles. i think most of it will fall apart before it gets to longbow key. i can't rule that out. that is about 7, 7:15 or so. a sprinkle is possible. can't rule it out. most areas will stay dry today. look at this. big-time storms in louisiana. tornado watches extend from parts of louisiana into mississippi. the southern part of this line has the best chance for weather. that rain so much needed in that area and into the carolinas, and those areas will get rain not only today, but a couple days this week. it's going to help out there. for us we stay relatively dry, mid-70s out there right now from tampa at 76, tarpon springs at 73, riverview at 74, and look at this sunset right now out over the gulf of
camera. mid-60s. that's it. did you notice the humidity? it's muggy. that's going to keep the overnight lows up. most of us low-to-mid 60s and eventually we will end up, i think, back out into the upper 70s to low 80s again tomorrow. we will start with a little bit more sunshine. i think we see some high clouds in the afternoon and some lower clouds developing as well, too. that's 3:00 and it's fairly quiet. 4, 5, 6:00 watch the model after 6:00 produce a sprinkle or two. the timing is off. we could see something to today, although i don't think there is much rain out there. next best chance for rain, this is wednesday night into early thursday morning. here is thursday at 10:30, 11:30. that's a weak front coming through and that will give us a 10 to 20% chance for rain. that's it. so the seven-day forecast warm and muggy in a couple days. the mornings will be warm, as well. if you are dressing the kids, it's shorts and short sleeves all day. the weekend, we will have that front come through thursday into friday. friday will be cooler.
can get almost for sunday and monday. so right now i am going with a small chance for a shower. that may go up, especially for sunday. i think right now monday we will have the best chance. i will alert you when we get a better chance. it's that time. get your phone, tablet or laptop out. we are giving you a chance to interact with us. head to wtsp.com/votenow. tonight's question is do you prefer a real or fake tree? you see the votes coming in. fake all the way so far. 10news reporter shannon valladolid spent the day with families loading up their christmas trees to kick off the holiday season. >> reporter: the sweet smell of pine in the air. >> smells good. >> reporter: means one thing for the woodside family. >> this one. >> reporter: getting to bring one of these home and continue
