5:16 pm
they usually don't do too much in terms of overall damage. but, you have to keep our eye on it. it is a tropical picture and it looks like we always see this time of year, and sunshine and other parts. and the rain will continue from east to west. and, most of the action has moved offshore with the exception of a few heavier storms. and, there will be a few popping up. bad day, tomorrow not a bad day either. wednesday it goes downhill pretty quickly and i think wednesday night into thursday afternoon will be the time. you have to keep our eye on the possibility of this rough weather rolling in. the five in north you live the better chances you will see it. upper 70s to middle ages around the area, a lot of clouds and
5:17 pm
dropping this down after highs in the lower 90s clearwater 79, st. pete has rain and it is 80. no changes here, have been seeing this for the last three or four days east to west flow and there is a little bit of moisture and a lot more moisture out there and we have seen of late. so, here's the way this plays out regardless of whether or not, the system will get it back together we will see some moisture. the rain chances will be higher than if you live inland. this evening, is pretty much what we typically see. he will wake up the partly sunny skies, it will be up to a nice start to the day and by the afternoon, we begin to see these storms develop as the winds shift from the east and eventually to the southwest and
5:18 pm
in that's when the rain increases. you begin to see it on tuesday afternoon, tuesday evening. notice, you get this onshore flow and it starts to push everything over to the east side. watch what happens wednesday, the first thing in the morning we are all ready seeing rain offshore. still don't think that we have a wind issue on wednesday morning by wednesday afternoon that is lunchtime more moisture coming off the gulf and later wednesday we start rain roll in. and, again this is extremely disorganized. but even if it doesn't develop much, our models are pretty bullish on a decent rain event. the system friday 2 pm, 3 to 5 inches of rain along the coast may be a few spots a little bit more if you go east of 75 your rain totals are probably 2
5:19 pm
buzz and justifiably so, a lot of warm water out there. there is definitely the possibility of the next two days there will be an opportunity to strengthen. by wednesday afternoon this chances gone because the same thing that will turn this to the east which is what is going to happen, is also going to weaken it. the good news is, that this will cause the storm to level off or even weekend but it will -- weekend -- said, we are probably in a tornado watch most of the day thursday. and remember, i know that it's human nature to focus on the line, but you have to look at the shaded area because i think that that path can go anywhere. in my opinion, i would lead to the north because it is less likely to make a hard hook even
5:20 pm
is the latest track at 5 pm, winds are 65 miles per hour, certainly a possibility. this would likely be here, and i think leveling off or weakening as it approaches and our latest rpm model you look at this, and you see a lot of moisture but you do not see a lot of spin, right? well, these continue to move to northeast because of that during -- digging down but at the same time they weakening. for the boaters, the water temperature is upper 80s, in the east winds early on. -- and the east winds come early on. incidentally could be an issue late wednesday into thursday. hour by hour forecast partly cloudy skies not a bad forecast for us until wednesday. and, obviously wednesday night into thursday windy weather is likely. the rain will be heaviest

5:30 pm
notice this track compared to earlier today, a little bit more to the north. if this were to verify and i'm pretty comfortable with this, gusty wind, 45 to 50 miles per hour, four or 5 inches of rain along the coast not nearly the issue that it would be if this line in the center were closer to tampa. we are by no means out of the woods, but it does look a little bit better now than it did six hours ago. we are taking a closer look at that tornado possibility coming up. >> thank you. meanwhile tonight people living in this mobile home park are living out of options. they live in the middle of a dangerous flood zone. and lauren found out there is not much that can be done to protect their homes. >> reporter: the members of dangerous flooding a few months ago still hard jerome
