TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — We saw on again, off again showers moving through today, but the rainfall totals were not as staggering as Wednesday’s. We have a few scattered showers for the early part of the evening, but it will be more quiet and drier overnight.
Temperatures will briefly feel lovely Friday morning. Expect to enjoy mid 70s for a few hours around sunrise, before a steep warm up into the upper 80s and low 90s.
Friday will be ever-so-slightly drier, we still expect a round or two of passing showers during the day and into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and low 90s despite the rounds of rain.
The holiday weekend dries out a bit! We expect only 30% chances for afternoon showers as we top out in the steamy low 90s.
Out in the tropics, Larry is still expected to be the next major hurricane of the 2021 Atlantic season. However, it is expected to curve north before reaching the Caribbean and continue moving north, staying east of Bermuda. We’ll continue to watch it.
A tropical wave in the Western Caribbean has a very low chance of developing over the next two days before upper level winds would limit any further development.
The peak of hurricane season is September 10th. While we are halfway through hurricane season, there are still three months to go.
