TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was sunny & hot, topping out in the mid to low 90s. We saw a widely scattered round of showers drift across the state towards the Gulf this afternoon, the chances for rain limited by drier air over us. The showers will grow as they approach our coastline when they interact with the sea breeze.
We should dry out this evening just after sunset. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s overnight.
Saturday is the slightly drier day of the weekend, we make it through most of the day without any rain, allowing our afternoon temperatures to climb well into the low 90s. A few scattered storms drift into our inland counties from the east between 3-5 p.m. The showers and storms build as they move into our coastal counties for the evening hours. We will dry out after sunset.
Sunday expect a few more clouds, and an isolated shower along the coastline during the morning and an inland downpour mid day. We will still see the best chances for rain during than afternoon and evening hours.
An onshore wind will develop early next week bringing back the chance for morning coastal showers and earlier thunderstorms in the afternoons. It will still be hot each day with highs in the mid-90s but the humidity will be a little bit higher.
