MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Drier this evening, familiar summertime pattern sets in for the weekend


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We have a few inland showers and storms, but are otherwise drier than previous evenings. Expect a warm and muggy night with calmer winds. Expect overnight lows around 78°. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight.

We get back to a more typical summer pattern tomorrow. Friday starts out with beautiful, mostly sunny skies and we start out dry. There will be some late afternoon and evening thunderstorms, firing up along the sea breeze, mainly after 3pm. A later chance for storms lingers into the late evening hours for our southernmost inland counties. Highs make it to 90 degrees in the afternoon.

Typical summer thunderstorms develop through the weekend with highs in the low 90s. Saturday expect light and variable winds and scattered showers. The chances for rain wind down after 9 p.m.

Sunday will be sunnier and a tad hotter, with scattered chances for showers and storms building up after 3 p.m.

On Monday the chances for rain are isolated during the day (and during the Lightning boat parade!) but we do have better chances for showers and storms to develop during the afternoon hours as we top out in the low 90s.

No development is expected in the tropics in the next five days.
