TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Spotty showers trudging westward across our area will push offshore or fade shortly after sunset. We are left with warm temperatures this evening and clearing skies.
We hit 90 degrees today and tomorrow, which is just one or two degrees from the current record highs.
Thursday we wake up in the mid 70s to the potential for some mid level fog, which should lift as we warm during the later morning hours. Expect sunny skies and near record heat again, topping out in the low 90s. There is a 20% chance for spotty showers to make their way across the state and into our area, with the best chance for a shower in our southern counties during the evening hours.
We dry out on Friday, with mild mornings in the mid to low70s and warm afternoons near 90°. Expect sunny skies and only a 10% chance for showers.
A weak cold front brings a 20% rain chance Sunday. Once the front pushes south, the humidity will drop slightly, which will be subtly, but most noticeable on Monday morning. Afternoon highs return to normal for mid-October, which is in the mid 80s.
