6:17 pm
that has to be watched because i think some of these are going to get towards the venice area and southern parts of sarasota county towards englewood. a couple of sprinkles. man, could we use the rain. we have been very dry out there. clouds form today. they are falling apart as we lose the daytime heating. partly cloudy overnight. we will do it again tomorrow, bring more clouds out in the afternoon hours. a big line of showers and thunderstorms. like how thin that line is. right there that's the main line through the day today or tonight and into tomorrow as well and then kind of reload over the next couple of days. we are on the warm side of that, guys. lower 70s right now after topping out about 80 degrees. it's 71 still in riverview, 74 tampa. the sun has set. a beautiful day out there. we are going to have another beautiful one tomorrow. so far tonight falling back down through the 70s into the 60s, but not very far. mid-and-upper 60s for overnight lows.
6:18 pm
as today. maybe a little bit drier. not that we saw a lot of rain today, but we saw a few sprinkles. less than that for tomorrow. a couple will be out there. same thing on wednesday. then finally by thursday that big line of storms is back to the north and the west. here is all that's left of it by the time it gets here, and it will be falling apart. that's 2:00 on thursday afternoon. so i do think we get some cooler air with it. the good news of this is not necessarily for us, because that is the hard-hit area for the drought. look how dry it is from atlanta that is where they are going to get some of the heaviest rainfall over the next couple of days. you can see that on european model. look at this. this is our chance for rain, or at least the amount of rain on the european model towards thursday. it is slim pickings, folks. a 20% chance. let's talk about the weekend. saturday i think looks good. sunday creates a problem in the models. we always talk about the models. one is the gfs. another one we use is the
6:19 pm
tropical season. look what the european does. it kind of brings it towards new orleans. but the european has it all across the southeast. much quicker solution, i think it will be a little bit slower. so we are going to try to lean to the gfs at this point. what that means for the weekend now, saturday's fantastic. sunday i think is good for the most part. it will be cooler. we are going to be in the low 80s through thursday. close to 80 on thursday. mid-70s for friday, saturday. sunday is the ti i think we will be okay, but we have got time to watch it. so just stay tuned to the forecast right here on 10news and my facebook page bobby deskins weather. other than, guys, a good looking forecast. >> thank you, sir. this is going to touch your heart. just days after his father's passing, one bucs player provides us with a moment we
