TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was soggy, with a few severe storms. We are left with lighter rain slowly ending from the north to the south. Temperatures will be in the 70s overnight.

You may wake up to the sound of heavy rainfall or the rumble of thunder- we have chances for a few storms along the coastline in the early morning hours on Friday. Friday is an Umbrella Alert Day because of the widespread downpours that will move across our area throughout the day.

Friday is an Umbrella Alert Day

Friday will be the rainiest day of this week. We start the day with a few scattered coastal storms moving inland. Waves of downpours will move onshore throughout the day. We expect rainfall totals to be between 1-2 inches across most of our area. Isolated hot spots will see 3-4″ of rainfall. Flooding is possible within the heaviest of the downpours.

As a result of the showers and clouds, temperatures will not make it into the 90s.

Elevated rain chances through the weekend for Tampa

The onshore wind pattern continues into the weekend, so the rain chances remain high. There’s a 70% rain chance Saturday, and the heaviest rain will be in the middle of the afternoon. We go down slightly to a 60% chance Sunday.

Highs remain close to average into next week, and morning showers are possible each day as well.

Our storms return to the afternoon late next week.

Thankfully, even though the tropics are quite active right now, no systems are threatening the U.S. coastline in the near future.
