TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was mostly dry, with only a few isolated showers making their way onshore today. Temperatures were HOT, topping out in the low 90s but feeling more like the upper 90s thanks to the humidity.
This evening we will slowly cool down as the isolated showers fade over inland areas. We will go to bed with temperatures in the low 80s and wake up to muggy mid to upper 70s.
Expect a sunny start on Tuesday and quickly warming temperatures. The first showers of the day develop near the coast around lunchtime. Then, the storms spread inland and increase in coverage. Expect a 40% chance of those afternoon storms.
It’s a similar pattern Wednesday, but just a tad drier with a 30% rain chance in the afternoon. Later storms build to the east, and highs will be back in the low 90s.
Chances for rain build a bit on Thursday and peak on Friday as a weak front approaches our area.
This weekend, some drier air works in, and it won’t be quite as humid. That will also limit our rain chances to just 30% each day with highs in the upper 80s.
We are still tracking Hurricane Lee and Tropical Storm Margot in the Atlantic. Both stay mostly out to sea, but we’ll watch for some high surf and rip currents along the east coast from Lee. Two other tropical waves have emerged off the coast of Africa.
