TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was warm, breezy, and dry with a few building clouds during the afternoon. The gusty winds prompted a high wind warning for the Skyway Bridge.
If you are smelling smoke we had a few small fires that were controlled, we are prone to fires with such low moisture content of the air and gusts of wind upwards of 20 mph.
We topped out in the low 90s, and our 10% chance for a shower to be pushed across the state by our easterly winds went largely unrealized.
Our small chance for a stray shower ends, and the evening will be very comfortable. Overnight lows drop into the upper 60s, which is slightly below average.
We should expect a similar day tomorrow with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees and a 10% chance of a stray shower or two. The afternoon will warm warm and breezy with partly cloudy skies.
High pressure drifts closer and brings us another round of dry air by the end of the week and into the weekend. Expect the low humidity to continue and our chances for rain to be nonexistent.
Through the weekend we will wake up in the cool, crisp upper 60s and warm into the low 90s. Easterly breezes will be elevated and gusty.
