Storms fire up this afternoon

Updated:
"It should feel like a typical July day across the Tampa Bay area," said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Leigh Spann. It starts out with mostly sunny skies and warm conditions. Temperatures climb into the low 90s this afternoon.  "A few isolated storms start to pop up around lunchtime, and the coverage of storms increases as the afternoon progresses," said Spann. Today's rain chance is 40%, and most of the storms will be east of I-75.

The rain gradually ends after sunset with lows in the mid 70s. Tomorrow will be similar with mostly sunny skies in the morning and a 30% chance of afternoon storms. "A stronger southwest wind will develop off the Gulf of Mexico and push the storms closer to the east coast of the state and out of our area later in the afternoon," said Spann.

Storm Team 8 is tracking Tropical Depression 2 in the central Atlantic Ocean, but the forecast keep the system very weak as it heads toward the Caribbean Islands.
