TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — It has been warm and humid throughout the day today. Our high temperature in the bay area was 95 degrees. We had heat indices that nearly reached 120 degrees in Lakewood Ranch with many others in the triple digits as well.
Scattered showers and storms have begun for northern counties and will continue to move south throughout the rest of the evening. These storms will continue to bring lightning and thunder to the region until around midnight tonight.
While it will still be warm this weekend, high temperatures will be closer to average in the low 90s and the humidity levels won’t be quite as high.
A normal summer pattern will be in place next week with warm afternoons and showers and storms developing.
There is a medium chance of development in the tropics as a tropical wave moves across the Atlantic. We will be watching this as it travels west.
