MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Drying out quickly this evening, fewer showers the rest of the week


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today’s downpours swept through earlier in the afternoon and as a result we will be drier a bit earlier this evening. Expect the cloudy skies to clear overnight as temperatures sink down into the comfortable mid 70s.

Some drier air in the upper levels of the atmosphere arrives tomorrow and limits the number of storms that form. Our rain chance drops to 20% in the afternoon. The timing of the more isolated showers will be later, with 2-4pm over our inland counties and 4-6 p.m. into our coastal counties. It will also be hotter without the more widespread storms. Highs will be in the low-mid 90s.

The rain chances remain at 20% on Friday and are only up to 30% on Saturday & Sunday. A few showers form each day, but they won’t be as widespread as we’ve seen the past few days. Highs stay in the low 90s.

Our more typical summertime chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms are back in the forecast beginning on Monday.
