TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was hot, sticky, and breezy. we topped out in the low 90s but it felt much hotter when you considered the humidity, more like the mid to upper 90s. That’s well above our average highs for this time of the year which are in the mid 80s.
Expect a very slow cool down this evening with just a few clouds, and the humidity is still elevated. Lows only drop into the mid 70s.
We hit 90 degrees again tomorrow afternoon with just a 10% chance of an inland shower. A front finally arrives Thursday, so our rain chances increase to 30%. Highs will be in the upper 80s Thursday.
Behind the front we won’t see much relief in the heat, but we will get an exciting blast of less humid air, so the mid to upper 80s on Friday and Saturday will feel much better. We also expect the morning temperatures on Friday and Saturday to be lovely and refreshing, in fact on Saturday morning we wake up to mid 60s- most likely the last time we will see the mid 60s until Fall.
