TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — It was dry and hot today. A few storms are still possible this evening, mainly east of I-75 but all storms will wind down after 10 pm. Temperatures will drop into the low to mid-70s by Monday morning.

Memorial Day will start out dry. Temperatures warm up fast, back into the mid-90s, but rain chances are much higher Monday afternoon. Widespread showers and thunderstorms will begin developing after 3:00 p.m. and drift inland.

By 6:00 pm most of our inland counties will be seeing showers and thunderstorm. After that, the storms will drift back toward the coast through 9:00 pm.

Rain chances will come down a little bit for the middle of the week, but temperatures will stay warm with highs in the low 90s.

Throughout the week, we’ll be watching tropical moisture in the Gulf of Mexico moving toward the state which could increase rain chances next weekend. Currently the National Hurricane Center is giving a 30% chance of development by the end of the week for this tropical moisture to organize into a tropical system.

We’ll be watching it, either way it looks like rain chances will just be going back up for next weekend.
