TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – You can expect temperatures to slowly cool down into the mid to high 70’s. Areas north of Tampa, like the Nature Coast will enjoy lower humidity. Tuesday, we start the day with temps in the mid 70’s and a combination of sun and clouds. However, temperatures warm up quickly and we’ll reach the low 90’s. Tomorrow, our southern counties will see a higher chances of rain. Overall, we’re looking at a 30% chance.
The front stalls around the I-4 corridor tonight. This means if you’re along or north of I-4 tomorrow morning, you’ll notice slightly cooler and less humid air. Communities farther south will still feel humid.
The rain chance is 30% tomorrow, and most of the rain will be south of the front. Highs are still in the low 90s.
When the front lifts back north on Wednesday, the humidity returns across all of Tampa Bay. Rain chances increase to 50% Wednesday and 60% on Thursday. Most of the rain will be in the afternoon and evening.
An area of low pressure develops off the Southeast coast late this week, and that should help drive back in some less humid air for the weekend.
That area of low pressure has a 30% chance of becoming tropical in the next 7 days. We are also still tracking Nigel that has strengthened to a hurricane, but it should stay out to sea. Finally, there’s a tropical wave coming off Africa that has a 70 % chance of developing.
