The Tropics are Heating Up
Not one, but two tropical storms are currently churning around in waters far away from Florida. Gabrielle has officially reformed and she is joined by Humberto. At this time, neither storm appears to be a threat to Florida. Both, however, serve as good reminders to be prepared. Hurricane season still has a long way to go!
Rain Chances Rise
Scattered storms are once again a part of the forecast for Tampa Bay today, Sept. 11. There’s about a 30 percent chance of wet weather in the afternoon and evening hours. Expect a high in the low 90s.
George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is in the news once again. This time his estranged wife says George threatened her with a gun, according to the Tampa Bay Times. She called police, but later declined prosecution. Since his acquittal earlier this summer, Zimmerman has continued to make headlines. Is he still newsworthy in your opinion or is it time to let Zimmerman fade into the background?
