MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Much needed rain chances increase this weekend


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) -We topped out at 91° today with slightly more humidity than we’ve seen over the past few weeks. Expect a clear evening, turning comfortable at a decent pace this evening.

Friday starts out in the mid to low 70s with sunny skies. A sea breeze develops, keeping coastal areas in the mid to upper 80s while inland temperatures hit the low 90s. Expect a 10% chance of an afternoon shower tomorrow, most likely to the east of I-75 during the afternoon hours.

Saturday looks similar, starting out in the mid to low 70s and warming up into the upper 80s. There will be a small chance for an afternoon shower to fire up over inland areas during the afternoon hours.

As the humidity continues to increase, rain chances go up to 20% Sunday with highs in the upper 80s.

Our best rain chance in weeks is unfortunately on Memorial Day, expect a 40% chance for afternoon showers and storms as we transition into a more classic summer rainy pattern. Monday’s rain chances will not be confined to inland areas, even a few coastal showers are possible.

This weekend marks a turn to our rainy season weather pattern, as next week we see decent chances for afternoon showers and storms to fire up, which will significantly help our lawns out and also lower our fire danger.
