pro folks fegsal job. do they know how many guns were stolen? >> linda, right now we're hearing the number is 40. but right now investigators are actually in there doing inventory to see if that in fact the number of weapons that were stolen from the store early this morning. you can see they've booed boarded up the front of tampa arms company of guns and ammo. right now the investigation is really just gettin under way. and calling a brazen as we just did might be an understatement. check out surveillance video. again a truck or an suv rams through the fro company. and then as many as a dozen criminals run into the store. they all appear to be wearing same masks and same hooded sweatshirts. it takes them just 60 seconds or so to clear guns off the shelves and out of the cases. hillsborough deputies say like we said 40 guns are stolen before they all got out of there. investigators spent morning trying tri-iggy to piece together what happened and who might be involved. this say this was well thought out crime it was a quick operation. the owner understandably shocked

12:05 pm
>> so you have to pull this together. you've got a family. you don't have a house. what about insurance? >> there's no insurance. >> we were, we were in process of foreclosure on our home. so you know no insurance on it. okay. so investigation is really under way at this point. we don't have those kinds of details i want to add in one more thing. and that is that matthew is a navy veteran. also in front of his house he has american flag and flag. so not only happens when a young family but people that were very supportive of the military and of is the u.s.. back to you. thank you, ken. >> wow. developing this afternoon wildfires fueled by strong winds have forced thousand thousands to evacuate damaged hundreds of building in southeast. the fires have been burning for weeks in tennessee, georgia and north carolina. you're probably seen this video. it's from gatlinburg. about 14,000 people have been evacuated from that area.

12:21 pm
could manage for the entire montana. it looks like we're pretty much going to wrap it up with that 1 hundredth of an inch of rain visible satellite loop again today, you can see more of that southerly wind you can see how clouds just riding up from from south to north a bit on breezy side that wind starting to pick up yesterday because we've got relatively lower pressure to our north. ridge is working its way away from us. higher pressure. that squeeze play. that's helped to bring winds up curreny about 20 miles an hour down in sarasota. and there is some rain on skytower radar. problem is, it's about 5060 miles out into the gulf of mexico. in order not heading towards us basically working its way on to north. we will remain primarily rain free as we go through day again for today. look at the temperature at noon. we're already 83 degrees. the dew point is at 65. yesterday that was down into the low 50s.
12:22 pm
moisture over the state. humidity is currently at 54 percent. winds coming up south about 12 miles an hour. 86 right now over in brandon. wesley chapel 80. just look at the map and how many temperatures you see in the 80s right now. pretty amazing how big of a warm up we've had across the state. and then the dew points, which is the measure the amount of moisture in the air when these numbers get into the 60s, starts to feel a little more uncomfortable. you look down to our south places like wauchula point of 70. even up towards brooksville dew point of 70. that's a very moist air. that's why it really is kind of muggy outside right now. now we've got front to our north. this basically going to kind of continue to work et cetera way on to the east. just kind of run out of gas. but on the backside of this, you see this the shaded area here. that's an area that as we go through the rest of today. it looks like we will see more and more thunderstorm activity as yet another front is working
12:23 pm
see strong storms in that area. then they had the rain, some rain yesterday across portions of tennessee and through georgia. and they really need the rain. we've had really an extreme drought across much of georgia into eastern tennessee. back into mississippi, and alabama. and they will continue to be dealing with this really over the next several weeks or months. it's going to take some time to rebound from that. but good news is as this cold front comes through rain through these areas we go through next couple of days. watch front number one. that's the first front. just runs out of gas. fizzles out. another front pushes in to southeast. could see strong storms across much of the south. but as that front continues to work its way down over us, again, it's just kind of running out of gas. we will see yeah we'll see couple showers as we get into thursday. but really we could use much more than just a few showers. 85 degrees for today.
12:24 pm
on muggy side as well. it will continue to be mild night for tonight with low temperature of 69. again for tomorrow partly cloudy we stay humid. that daytime high of 83. on water winds are out 10 to 15 knots. moderate chop on the bay. high tide comes up 3:09 this afternoon. here's your seven-day forecast, even though we've got cold front coming through. really not whole lot cooler behind that front. we're drop temperatures a few degrees. but still probably going to running above normal all the way at least through the middle of next week, linda. all right, thanks, jim. there's a new deadly drug on the streets.
