Storm Team 8 Forecast: Rain chances coming down as Nestor moves away to the north


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tropical Storm Nestor brought heavy rain, gusty winds and isolated tornadoes to the area Saturday morning. A Tornado Watch was allowed to expire at noon Saturday.

Nestor will move onshore Saturday in the central panhandle. Most of the showers and storms are on the eastern side of the storm and have been pushed east of the Tampa Bay area. Nestor will continue to pull north and drier air will replace the tropical moisture.

Rain chances will come down but winds will stay breezy and skies will stay mostly cloudy through the day Saturday keeping temperatures in the low 80s.

Sunday will have a low chance to see a few showers but most areas will be considerably drier and we’ll see more sunshine.

Rain chances go back up Monday ahead of the next cold front. The front will pass through Tuesday to dry us out briefly Wednesday. Another front will approach towards the end of the week increasing rain chances again.

Temperatures in the afternoons will hover in the mid 80 and overnight lows will bottom out in the mid 70s each night.
