TAMPA, Fla (WFLA) – We hit 92° today after sunshine FINALLY returned to our forecast. We will have a few inland storms drifting through our area and fading after sunset. Expect clearing skies overnight with temperatures sinking down into the upper 70s.
Saturday starts out dry, but the sea breezes from the east and west coasts of Florida will push inland and create another round of afternoon and evening storms in the center of the state. Saturday’s rain chance is 40% with highs in the low 90s.
We go back to a 50% chance of afternoon storms for Sunday thanks to in increase in moisture in our air. Most of the showers will fire up in the afternoon along the sea breeze and push inland. It stays hot and humid with highs in the low 90s.
There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic right now. One in the central Atlantic that only has a 20% chance of developing in the next five days, but a stronger wave off the coast of Africa has a 60% chance to become the next tropical depression or storm.
