STORM TEAM 8 FORECAST: Sky-high humidity continues for the next few days

News


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The humidity is as high as it gets in the Tampa Bay area. With highs near 90 degrees, it will feel like ~105 this afternoon for several hours.

Spotty morning showers are pushing in from the Gulf of Mexico. Rain chances increase to 50% this afternoon as the downpours spread east of I-75 by the evening. Extra clouds around as well.

It stays muggy overnight with lows near 80 degrees. Storms are possible again in the early morning hours of Wednesday, especially near the coast.

A similar forecast is expected with a 50% chance of downpours and highs near 90 for Wednesday and Thursday.

It looks like we may break out of the onshore wind pattern this weekend, and that will limit the morning rain and bring the humidity down slightly.

TRACKING THE TROPICS: Saharan dust continues to keep it quite across the Atlantic with no development expected in the next five days.
