TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was hot, topping out in the low to mid 90s with the rain holding off until the later afternoon into the evening hours.

Overnight the skies will clear out and temperatures will hover in the upper 70s and low 80s with muggy conditions.

Tuesday starts out with sunshine and warms very quickly. Expect very light winds and partly cloudy skies during the afternoon. A few showers will pop up after 2 p.m, but the best chance for storms will be between 5-9 p.m. The sea breeze may keep the storms east of our coastline, making for the best chances for rain to the east of I-75.

Wednesday and Thursday will be similar, with sunny starts, hot afternoons, and stormy evenings.

Friday and Saturday we may see rain chances a little earlier in the day, mostly thanks to light to nonexistent winds, or a slight westerly or southerly flow.

Rain chances will gradually increase throughout the rest of the work week as an increase in moisture arrives. The best coverage of storms will happen on Saturday and Sunday, mainly in the afternoon hours.

Sunday’s rain chances are back to the late afternoon/evening hours thanks to building southeasterly winds throughout the day.
