TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was warm- we hit the low 90s. A few scattered storms fired up during the afternoon, drifting eastward slowly. The inland showers should fade after sunset. It will be warm and muggy for the overnight hours.
We wake up in the 70s and warm up quickly into the upper 80s, low 90s. We start off with some short-lived haze. Expect partly cloudy skies and hot afternoon temperatures. We will see a few showers firing up along the sea breeze as it pushes inland during the afternoon and into the evening hours. The sea breeze should keep the coast dry again.
Tropical moisture spreads across the state as we head into the weekend. This will enhance our showers. There will be a 50% chance of storms Friday afternoon and evening. Highs will still be in the upper 80s.
Off and on storms expected throughout the day on Saturday. The rain chance is 60%, and the extra showers help hold highs in the mid 80s.
Looks like we are transitioning into our rainy season this weekend. The rain chances remain at 40% Sunday and Monday, and most of those will be in the afternoon.
We keep a 40% chance of afternoon storms in the forecast after that, and almost daily storms will stay in our forecast as we head into late May and June. Highs stay near 90 degrees each day as well.
