MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Overnight showers, drying out and warming up for the weekend

Forecast

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out in the lovely mid 70s today under partly cloudy skies. Thanks to building clouds, we will not cool down much tonight, only getting down into the low 60s. We do expect a round of showers to push through late tonight into tomorrow morning.

If you are headed to the Lightning game tonight, the temperatures will be comfortable this evening. We’ll be dry even through post game celebrations, as chances for showers do not grown until after midnight.

The showers push into the Nature Cost between midnight and 3 a.m. We’ll see showers in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Polk counties between 3-6 a.m. The showers will push through our southern and inland counties of Sarasota, Manatee, Hardee, Desoto, and Highlands counties between 6-9 a.m.

The front won’t bring us any cooler air. Highs on Friday will climb into the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies. Friday night will be quite nice, with temperatures sinking down into the 60s for the evening hours and ending up in the upper 50s to start our weekend off.

The weekend looks great! We warm up quickly Saturday with temperatures soaring through the 70s and topping out around 80 degrees. Expect partly cloudy skies and mild evening temperature in the 70s.

Sunday we start out in the mid 60s and warm up into the low 80s. We will see a slight increase in clouds late on Sunday ahead of a small chance for a stray shower by the evening hours. We’ll have to keep an eye on the radar for the Bucs game, which was moved from 1 p.m. to 4:45. There is a 10% chance for a stray shower at the game.

A stronger front arrives Monday with a better chance for showers at 30%, and this one brings back cooler air. Highs on Monday will be in the mid-upper 70s, but we’re back in the low 70s on Tuesday.
