TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was HOT and humid- topping out in the actual mid 90s but feeling more like 110°. Late afternoon storms fired up and will become widespread by sunset. The storms will fade quickly after sunset and we expect a dry and muggy night by 10 pm.
Temperatures will actually make it down into the 70s overnight tonight, something we failed to do most of last week, staying in the warm and muggy low 80s.
Tuesday kicks off a much drier weather pattern that will stick around for the work week. A rare shot of low humidity moves in Tuesday, almost eliminating our chances for showers and making for pleasant morning temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.
The afternoons will still be quite hot, topping out in the record challenging mid 90s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
We see our humidity returning to our forecast Friday, accounting for a very muggy afternoon and a few afternoon showers.
Over the weekend our typical, widespread chances for showers return to our forecast. Expect afternoon highs in the low 90s as a result.
