MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Scattered storms drifting westward across our area

Forecast

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) We topped out close to the mid 90s this afternoon, southern storms drifted westward across our area, building to the north slightly during the late afternoon hours. The showers and storms will be offshore or fading after sunset. Expect a warm and muggy night, with temperatures sinking down to 77°.

Tuesday starts with partly cloudy skies and warms into the low 90s. Expect 50% chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. The storms will fire up and be pushed westward across our area and off of our coastline.

Wednesday you’ll notice slightly more humidity, as tropical moisture builds across the state. Expect a few more clouds during the day and an enhanced chance for afternoon shower and thunderstorms. Expect to top out at 89° with 60% chances for shower and thunderstorms.

A similar day is expected Thursday, but the afternoon and evening rain chances are slightly lower at 50%. Otherwise, it will be quite hot with highs in the low 90s again.

The deeper moisture erodes a bit late this week into this weekend, making for hotter temperatures and more limited chances for showers over the holiday weekend.

Tracking The Tropics

A weak circulation developed enough to be named Tropical Storm Danny just offshore of southern South Carolina. Danny will be a rainmaker for South Carolina and Northern Georgia as it moves onshore tonight and dissipated tonight.
