MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Turning cool with lower humidity tonight, showers & storms expected Thursday


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out in the mid 80s this afternoon, expect a lovely cool down this evening, with less humidity and clear skies. Expect temperatures to sink down into the mid to upper 60s for an overnight low.

We wake up comfortably cool Wednesday morning but expect quite the warm up under sunny skies. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid 80s with no chances for showers.

Thursday is an Umbrella Alert Day, we expect a widespread round of showers and storms to push through our area ahead of a strong cold front. We could see strong storms- the primary concerns are gusty winds, lightning, and flooding. Right now it looks like we will wake up to the showers and storms pushing into Citrus, Hernando and Pasco counties early. The showers and storms will push into Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Polk counties during the mid day. The line of storms will push into our southern counties by the afternoon and into the evening hours.

While severe weather should not be widespread, some stronger storms are possible. Highs will stay near 80 Thursday.

Behind the front, it will be cooler and breezy. Highs in the upper 70s Friday and mid 70s Saturday. With a strong wind off the Gulf of Mexico, a few passing sprinkles will be possible both days.

Sunday should be comfortable with highs in the upper 70s, and it stays clear for trick-or-treating Sunday night. Lows will be in the low 60s.
