TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We were HOT and mostly dry today, topping out around 93° with only a few isolated showers firing up in our coastal counties and pushing offshore. This evening will be mostly cloudy and slow to cool. Overnight lows will be in the upper 70s.
Tuesday begins on a muggy note with a few clouds. We will warm up into the low 90s with only isolated afternoon chances for showers.
Dry air will continue to limit our chances for showers this week, but it’s not enough to lower our humidity. Wednesday and Thursday will be hot and mostly dry, topping out at 93° with only 10-20% chances for a stray afternoon shower.
The hot and dry conditions will drive our fire danger higher throughout the workweek.
The drier air begins to erode over the weekend, with increasing chances for afternoon showers on Sunday, building even more for Monday and Tuesday.
We are tracking one area in the tropics. A cluster of storms near Central America has a 20% chance of development before coming onshore in Nicaragua.
