TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was warm & muggy, topping out in the mid 80s along the coast and the low 90s over inland areas. A few storms fired up along I-75 and moved inland. Those will fade or push out of our area after sunset.

Overnight temperatures will slowly cool, sinking down into the mid 70s under mostly clear skies.

Friday’s rain chance is also 40%, but the breeze from the Gulf begins to weaken in the afternoon. That allows some of the storms to linger in our area through sunset.

For the weekend, it’ll feel a bit like summer with highs near 90 degrees and a few storms forming in the afternoon and early evening.

We have slightly better chance for showers next week as we transition into the rainy season, and highs stay in the upper 80s.
