MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Warm & humid weekend with increasing chances for showers


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out in the mid 80, feeling more like 90° thanks to the increasing humidity. Expect a slow cool down this evening, getting down into the low 70s overnight.

The weekend starts in the low 70s with a nice warm up into the sticky upper 80s. There is a 10% chance for an afternoon inland stray shower or two. Over the weekend a mostly dry, weak front will stall out over our area. As a result the skies to the north of I-4 will be more clear and they will see slightly cooler overnight temperatures. We’ll see a few more clouds and warmer overnight temperatures to the south of I-4.

That front will help increase our rain chance to 30% Sunday and Monday. The rain chances will be more concentrated in our southern counties, especially on Sunday. Highs will still be in the mid to upper 80s with higher humidity.

Looking long range, there is a stronger cold front set to arrive Thursday. That front should bring us our best rain chance is weeks and a bigger cool down for Friday.
