wants to wrap all this convection around the center wich is over here but there's some drier air over here, and it's impeding it just a little bit so everything gets pushed to the eastern side of the storm. as it moves northeastward up to the big bend area today, all ofs in. now, if we hadn't had inches of rain yesty,erda it might not be that big of a deal but any heavy rainfall that we get today, and we'll get some late today, will aggravate a fresh water flooding setup for us. .clearwater beach reporting 21 mile-per-hour windsts. as o:00 a.m., t winds at 60
ea at t as we nouo t thein05vesacut hrou the lay in the waasrnin that they t tropical storm watch near jacksonville and made that a tr. ver towae river from e anc pasco county toev coty is is wtha we clal the wii.use d thesre 40 plus mile-per-hour winds. and the forecast brings them o into s by tonight and notice, cits unty, hernando,
getting into that 40 mile-per-hour wind, that's why the tropical storm warnings are ed. hillsborough, it's going to be windy. don't get me wrong. stronin wd gusts here tot go along with some rain as the storm makes its way she. ere's that lit sliverf rrhueorce winds. l verned into a small area if it does become a huicane later toy. so t potential impac of this storm on ourarea. we have advisory, right, fmro ts afrnoon at 1:00. until friday we may go through two or three high tide cycles running a couple of feet above normal. now, foran areas, that won't be a huge problem but some of you'll typically getoong, s above you may tt again toda so just b the rip cnow that you
three feet above the ground for later today. then as you go f nort o, hernand citrus county, there's your wind ile-per-hour gusts. even inland portion of those counties as well as you get further north, though, notice how your tides go four to six feet above normal. so that's where we may start to see the potential of some low lying flooding along the coast would be as you get further north and even fth to the norths well because look at the storm surge forecast. no matter what type of storm goes through there, they may be looking at 10 to 12 feet. you go further, citrus county and parts of pasco county, yo tu'rewoo four,o too, aloe co. we could get some indion but worse it wiend one to go, the three feet as we showed you in
oue notab ones, crystal river, 3:14 this afternoon and again, 3:41 tomorrow morning. so again, ts afternoon, tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, those three cycles and then things will probably start to die back a little bit. davis island is 2:44 this afternoon. 3 c. -- 3:32, one to two feet insaso. further n you go,he t higher etherhinge have ihe dwah. five to0 inches of rain n pickee ore r tnend thing to potentiall happen today and that's severe you t a storm heading towar the coastlinend a we' h you'll t lites here. of thoseds,
you can just tell by the way the maps are setting up that the further north you go, higher the impacts are going to be in general from this storm and the rainfall, of course, will throw a few inches at us as well. that's my main concern in the tampa area is all the excess rainfall coming off yesterday's rain which could definitely cause some flooding. increasing wind and rain squalls. we may see nothing until mid-afternoon but then things start to pick up because the storm gets closer and closer and approaches the big bend by friday afternoon, we'll see dramatic improvements around here and then over the holiday weekend, we'll start to lower the rain chances to the point that we'll get back to 40% on sunday and even 30% rain chances for monday. vanessa? >>vanessa: all right. thank you. we have an update now to flooding in the pinellas county area. looks like fhp has officially cleared this spot so that's good news at gandy boulevard. it should be good to go so that does mean our sole flooding spot out of pinellas county is mlk
mexico. doug has more for from washington. >> let's start with the numbers. these are the results of a few fox news pol showing if you factor in third party candides, this is just a point race now betweenlary innd that doesn't even take into account everything that happened yeerday. donald trump taking the stage i phoenix to talk immigration. serving up the kind of red meat that first put him on the path to the g.o.p. nomination.
insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours. and then flying home again. that is not how it works. >> as far as the border wall is concerned and who would pay for it, donald trump said the issue was not discussed with mexico's president. the president said he made it clear mexico would not foot the bill. >>laura: before meeting trump in arizona, running mate governor pence spoke tootersn the bay fter attending a private fundraiser in st. petersburg. he travelled to sarasota. a few hundred people met with him for a rally. >>russell: and timaine will t bominto florida today. heas going to make a campaign cksonvil., panama ci tropal i g stormoing to be keeping haway. no word when they will reschedule. >>laur a newols almost

tomorrow morning and on that path tshould keep the tropic storm force winds to the north of tampa. that pasco, hernando, citrus county, you've got wind speed in your forecast for late today and tonight. maybe 30 or so in and around the tampa area. it's going to get windy. it's going to get squally with the weather for later today. some of those wind gusts forecast, this is for gusts, not necessarily sustained wind coast, especially around the big bend. we have allfrnndwh coming up in a few minutes. >>vanessa: thanks. i's 7:32 and we mtioned mlk an the st. pete area closed due to flooding. sky fox is checking thatout.th e south. yeah. a lot of water we're dealing

>>dave: we've been watching skytower radar all morning as these of rain just move up from south to nor and theve steday offshore for now but let me give you a little instance. when i first got in, this band o see how it's slowly by aer hours, i do anticipate we're going to getleh in the actn is n going toas ver. still think we' theimcts,ou yo rth of ay. tampa, pasco, hernando, citrus county, i'm specifically talking to you right now, tropical sto warning. wnds 39 miles per hour or greater. the best chance of that, i think it's going to happen tonight. late this afternoon and tonight,
that could go over 40 miles an hour. coastal flooding at high tide and the further north you go, the higher the tides are going to be. for instance, in citrus county, they could be four feet or a little more than that so that's something that you have to keep in the back of your mind. i know this is a tropical storm. ouldece ainim but theay the gulf is s up'r pog a t water ione le sonf il r above county as well, tornados. it would not least bit to have a wind gust over 30. it really wouldn't with some of the rain coming through later today. coastal flooding at the time of high tide. we're looking at tides to run one to two feet above normal and in some spots, some lower lying spots in pinellas, i know that's enough to cause some coastal flood soing be on the lookout
tide. isolated, fresh water flooding as well. meaning we've had so much rain, if we get a couple morenches ra,re's nowheort to go. by the way, i'm going tow sho you the tides in a second. the enhanced e, it's obviously elongated a little bit. this storm is strengthening. reconnaissance aircraft flying around inside this storm waiting the 8:00 advisory on this storm. but you see h everything is pushed for the most part to the eastern side of it? and it is beginning to
the east, let's say around saint mornin so on this path, your hurricane force winds, if this whereaxpfca would be from tao race off to the north and east. it may cause problems for forecasters in new york over the weekend. maybe some rain there but again, 're worried about this. tropical storm warning from anclote river. you have pass unty. you wouldn't think with a minimal hurricane, you would have a storm surge like this but the water just funnels into this area and the way it's coming in, you may see 10 to 12 feet, believe it or not. obviously in citrus county, maybe four feet or so and then lester -- lesser amounts, two to four feet, in and around tampa bay. here are the tides.
but wherever you live closest to, just get an idea when the high tide is going to be this afternoon and for tomorrow morning because we're going to have, i think, two, maybe three cycles of high tides that are going to be above normal before they eventually drop back again. so overall running one to three feet above normal. the greater storm surges in areas to the north. and really the impact of the storm will be greater the further north you go. so as the day moves along, increasing wind and some squalls, heaviest to the north. 82 degrees. we're looking at rain chances to actually drop. i do want to show you the seven-day forecast. you know, i've been working all week, talking about the storm. forget about the fact there's a holiday weekend coming. this will be out of here for the holiday weekend and by sunday and monday, rain chances back to 40 and maybe even 30%. vanessa? >>vanessa: good to hear. 7:50 right now. a crash we're seeing has some northbound lane blockage affecting u.s. 301 in the area of the selmon expressway.

>>charley: "good day tampa bay." i'm charley belcher from the florida state fairgrounds this morning for the largest labor day home show. kicks off tomorrow and goes through mo.ay with hermin in the gulf, it's important to keep our homes ready in case the next one comes closer to the tampa bay area. mike is here from serve pro and you're in the business of
