TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out around 90° with gusty easterly winds (again!) today. Expect a beautiful evening as temperatures cool nicely into the upper 60s.
Humidity values also remain low. While that makes it feel more comfortable outside, it also increases our fire danger. There is a Red Flag Warning in place today for much of the Tampa Bay area. Please don’t set anything on fire outside because it can easily spread in these conditions. The strong breeze also keeps a Small Craft Advisory posted for area waterways.
The weekend will be dry and comfortable. We start Saturday out in the crisp and cool upper 60s. Under mostly sunny skies we will warm up to around 90°. Saturday will be slightly less breezy, but just slightly- expect easterly winds between 12-17 mph with higher gusts. Saturday night will be lovely and comfortable, with a nice breeze.
Sunday starts out in the cool upper 60s and the winds finally relax a bit. Temperatures turn warm for the afternoon hours. The humidity remains low and we do not anticipate any chances for showers.
Next chance for rain? By the middle of next week we may see a few sea breeze showers.
