TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was mostly cloudy, with temperatures topping out in the low 90s. We saw slow-moving showers drift northward across our area. We will dry out a little earlier this evening, we will dry out starting in the southern/coastal areas and ending along the Nature Coast.

Wednesday we see similar chances for showers, initially along the coast and moving into our coastal counties during the early afternoon. The main chances for showers build over our inland counties during the late afternoon/early evening hours. A few showers may drift back out to I-75 after sunset.

This typical summer storm pattern is expected through the end of the week. Watch for late afternoon storms and highs in the low-mid 90s.

We have two tropical waves in the Atlantic that have the potential to organize and become the next tropical storm or depression. During the next five days, one has an 80% chance to form and the one closer to Africa has a 40% chance.

Most of the computer model forecasts keep the disturbance in the central Atlantic curving back out to sea early next week.
