TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We woke up at 71° in Tampa this morning, with some inland areas enjoying upper 60s for a few hours. We saw sunny skies and light easterly winds, allowing us to warm up into the upper 80s and low 90s. The humidity remains low, with even lower dewpoints today than what we saw yesterday. Expect a lovely evening, cooling nicely and feeling even better. Temperatures will sink down into the upper 60s and low 70s by early Wednesday.
Expect another day with low humidity tomorrow and plenty of sunshine. Afternoon highs will be back near 90 degrees again.
The humidity makes a slow return during the end of the week thank to a southerly shift in winds, but the rain chances remain less than 10%.
There’s enough moisture for a 20% rain chance this weekend. Highs are still close to 90 degrees.
In the tropics, Hurricane Sam is still a major hurricane, but it’s expected to stay out to sea. Two tropical waves have a 90% chance of developing in the eastern Atlantic over the next few days. We will watch those carefully to see where they head.
