TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was HOT with increasing humidity, we topped out in the low to mid 90s. With moisture beginning to increase in our atmosphere, we see a chance for showers returning to our forecast. Not many of us will get rained on, but a few showers and storms fire up over our inland most areas. The inland showers fade after sunset.

Tonight will be quite slow to cool. Warm westerly winds off of the Gulf keep us in the muggy low 80s at our coolest point overnight.

Friday will be HOT, possibly dangerously hot, with parameters being close to those of a Heat Advisory, with “Feels Like” temperatures around 110°.

Try to limit your time outdoors during the hottest times of the day. Drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

Friday’s rain chances fire up over inland counties during the afternoon hours and build out towards the coast during the evening.

Saturday’s storms start a little earlier in the day, so don’t be surprised to get a midday shower. This keeps it slightly cooler Saturday afternoon. Highs stay in the low 90s with a 50% rain chance.

Rain chances over the next 5 days.

The rain chance increases again to 60% on Sunday, and we will see some extra clouds around as well. Expect highs near 90 degrees.

Next week returns to a classic summer pattern with highs in the low 90s and a 50% rain chance each afternoon.
