MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Evening downpours drifting through, keeping an eye on a the tropics


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was HOT again, topping out in the low 90s but feeling more like the triple digits. A weak frontal boundary is sagging across the state and will make for a line of downpours drifting across us this evening into the overnight hours. Expect overnight temperatures to sink down into the upper 70s.

Saturday we wake up to a few isolated showers in our southernmost counties, but otherwise sunny skies. Expect a rapid warm up into the low 90s. We may see a few spotty inland and southern showers pop up during the afternoon hours.

Sunday will be sunny thanks to slightly drier air over us. Expect scorching afternoon temperatures around 93° with heat index temperatures well into the triple digits. There is a 30% chance for showers, most likely a few spotty inland showers during the afternoon hours.

An area of low pressure developing on Florida’s east coast helps pull drier air over our area for the weekend. The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on that low and giving it a 40% chance of developing tropical characteristics. It should just meander around the state for the next few days.
