TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was hot! We topped out in the mid to low 90s. The showers fired up later, keeping us warmer longer. The last of the storms should be offshore after sunset.

Temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s when you head to bed and we wake up in the upper 70s and low 80s. Expect skies to clear overnight and our humidity to be quite high.

Best chances for rain by area on Wednesday.

We wake up to sunshine and rapidly warming temperatures on Wednesday. We will climb into the low 90s by the mid day. We’ll have an isolated showers or two wander onshore with our early afternoon sea breeze. The main chance for rain develops late, in the early evening hours to the east of I-75. The line of storms becomes more consolidated and drifts towards the Gulf around sunset, making for coastal rain chances between 8-10 p.m.

All the rain will clear out overnight and this classic summertime pattern will continue through at least Thursday.

Rain chances over the next 5 days.

Some drier air moves into the state on Friday, this will limit, but not eliminate our chances for showers on Friday afternoon and evening.

By the end of the week a westerly, onshore wind will develop. This typically brings in higher humidity and the chance for showers along the coast in the morning with scattered thunderstorms mainly east of I-75 in the afternoon.

8 day forecast for Tampa Bay.

The onshore pattern looks like it could continue through the weekend and into early next week. This will make for slightly-less-scorching afternoons, topping out in the low 90s instead of the mid 90s.

The tropics remain quiet with no new tropical development expected over the next 5 days.
