MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Humidity and rain chances increase into the weekend


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We were warm and sunny again today, our temperatures topped out in the upper 80s. Expect a pleasant evening with a few clouds and a bright moon. Overnight the temperatures will sink down into the low 70s.

A front pushes south into Florida tomorrow, and it will help increase humidity and give us a 20% chance of a spotty shower. Most of the rain will be south of I-4. Highs will be back in the mid to upper 80s.

Saturday starts out in the low 70s, but warms up to near 90° for the afternoon. The humidity will be noticeable and we have a 10% chance for a stray shower, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours.

We finally see a decent chance for showers on Sunday- the front stalls and lifts back north, rain chances increase across our southern counties, accounting for 30% chances for rain. Expect a few more clouds and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Monday the chances for rain will be more widespread, expect chances for rain, even early in the day followed by drier conditions Monday night.

Looking ahead at the long range forecast, a strong front is expected to push through our area Thursday night into Friday morning- this will bring our next chance for rain and we are monitoring the possibility for severe thunderstorms. We expect cooler, drier weather behind the front- which means we could be cooler for Halloween.
