dunedin, down to indian rocks, brandon, over to ruskin, everything now beginning to fizzle out. by first thing tomorrow morning skies will begin to clear. temperatures will be cool but not really not much cooler than they typically should be for the middle part of november. upper 60s to lower 70s right now. at the airport skies are cloudy. we're clear in st. pete. temperatures upper 60s. we will be dropping down into the lower 60s by morning. there's the satellite picture. the reason we have the clouds and the showers, it's a front. that's not a particular strong front, but it is a cool front. as it moves through overnight what will happen is skies will clear from north to south as you can see they really already are in many cases. and with that tomorrow will be a beautiful day. we will start off in the low 60s. maybe a few upper 50s in our northern counties, then warm up to 80 degrees. so a nice cool morning, a very warm, pleasant afternoon with low humidity.
11:19 pm
we are going to get a little bit of a reinforcing shot of cooler air friday night into saturday, so i think saturday morning will be the coolest morning that we will see. a lot of 50s. highs in the upper 70s. rain chances pretty much nonexistent after we get rid of what is going on out there now. by the early part of next week the models are hinting at a better chance of a few showers especially on tuesday. and then back behind it we could see another round of cooler weather by the middle of the week. so every three or four days we are looking air but sort of setting us up where we should be, which is an afternoon high of 79. afternoon highs should be below 80. of course, they won't be tomorrow. they will be about 80 or 81, but at least we are not talking about mid to upper 80s like we had just about 10 days ago. now, here is that long range pattern i talked about. and by the middle of next week we begin to see a little bit of a dip so there is a chance we could see some cooler air but
11:20 pm
i really don't see much of a blast of cold air, and that likely continues right on into thanksgiving. now, there is a lot of big dips out to the west, so we will see down the road if some of those have an opportunity to move east. but usually our coldest air comes in from up here, not out in the pacific. the bottom line, kind of status quo right on through the next 10 to 14 days. northeast wind at 10 to 15 knots. the winds will come down in the afternoon. moderate chop on the bay 73 degrees. there are your tides. sunrise 6:48, sunset at 5:40. skies are partly cloudy waking up to mostly clear. sunny skies the entire day. we are going to top out at 80 to 81 degrees. here's a look at florida's most accurate seven-day forecast. 78 on friday and saturday. i do think saturday morning we are going to see a lot sphrifts. a great weekend for rib fest at the park.
11:21 pm
later on in the afternoon and evening, and maybe a few showers returning by the early part of next week. >> all right, thank you. bucs running back doug martin is back but is he ready to go sunday against chicago? t.k. has that story next in sports. before we go to break another live look at protesters marching in los angeles. earlier they burned an effigy of donald trump. also protests tonight in dallas where police are heavily you may remember a couple of months ago during a protest there were police shootings that turned into a terror event when a lone gunman opened fire. we will continue to monitor these protests and bring you any late breaking details as they become available. abc action news at 11:00
