TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out in the mid 80s today, with gusty easterly winds. We are cooling down nicely tonight and waking up in the 60s Friday morning.

Friday will warm quickly under mostly sunny skies with building easterly winds again. It will be dry and warm.

The gusty winds will make it more choppy on area waterways. There’s a Small Craft Advisory posted through Saturday morning.

No rain is expected today, just a few passing clouds. It stays comfortable this evening with lows in the low-mid 60s.

The sun rises today at 6:59am, and sunrises get earlier for the next few months. The earliest sunrise happens in June at 6:33am. The sun sets are getting later too.

Another warm and breezy day expected tomorrow. Highs reach the mid-upper 80s, and the wind continues from the east.

Humidity increases slightly for the weekend, so there’s a 10% chance of an afternoon shower on Saturday. The rain chance is 20% Sunday, mainly for inland areas.

We get a little warmer this weekend as well. Highs will be in the upper 80s, and we could even hit 90 in a few spots.

20% rain chances continue into early next week. Models are hinting at a weak front arriving Wednesday into Thursday, so we will keep an eye on it.
