TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was damp and humid, with passing downpours. The onshore flow that has settled in will keep us warm during the overnight hours and increase our chances for showers. Expect temperatures to sink down only into the upper 70s. We have a few rounds of showers, especially for our southern counties this evening before we dry out after sunset.
Tuesday begins with some morning showers possible, and an overall rain chance of 40%. As we warm up throughout the day, the showers will drift inland. High temperatures will top out in the upper 80s.
Wednesday looks wet, with 40% chances for passing showers. Expect a hot and humid day with passing chances for showers.
Rain chances drop to 30% Thursday and down to 20% Friday. Hot and humid conditions continue.
An area of low pressure with the potential for tropical development should be in the western Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week. It should have little impact on our weather, but it has a 70% chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm later this week.
We are also tracking what is most likely to be the next named storm of the 2021 season, Tropical Depression Two is close to Tropical Storm strength. It will most likely become a Tropical Storm, taking the next name, Bill, later this evening. It won’t be a Tropical Storm for long, fading back to a low pressure tomorrow evening and never making an impact on anyone.
