MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Blinding downpours and storms drifting towards the coast


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A ragged line of heavy rain and thunderstorms is drifting slowly westward across our area, producing heavy rainfall and a few thunderstorms. The storms will produce around an inch of rain in the heavier spots and push off of our coastline around or just after sunset.

Expect a slow cool down this evening under mostly cloudy skies. Overnight temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Tomorrow’s rain chance is slightly higher at 60%, but the pattern remains the same with most of the storms happening in the afternoon and evening.

Overall, rain chances drop slightly into the July 4th weekend. There will still be some pop-up afternoon storms, but nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year.
