TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was warm and breezy, with temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s. This evening will be dry, breezy, and warm. Temperatures will only get down to 77° at the Tampa Airport, but inland and northern areas will get down into the mid 70s.

Thursday starts off with showers and storms moving onshore in Citrus, Hernando, and Pasco counties during the morning hours. The passing downpours will spread southward across our area becoming widespread by midday through the early afternoon hours. Our southern and inland counties will see the showers and storms during the late afternoon into the evening hours.

Some of the storms may bring damaging wind gusts. Most of our area is under a slight risk of severe storms. That’s a 2 out of 5 on the risk level.

The clouds and rain make it slightly cooler with highs in the low 80s tomorrow, but the cold front will bring in unseasonably cool air for Friday and the weekend.

Highs will only be in the low 70s Friday and Saturday, and a breeze will make it feel even cooler. Humidity will be low, so it should be a great weekend to be outside. We make it into the upper 70s on Sunday.

The cool-down is brief, and we are back in the mid to upper 80s next week. No rain is expected through the middle of the week.
