TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We saw severe thunderstorms and heavy downpours moving through this afternoon, prompting several tornado warnings. The strongest storms will exit our southern and inland counties this evening, but a round or two of pesky, but not severe, showers will push through.
Tonight will be windy, cloudy, and mild- expect temperatures to sink down to around 70° with spotty showers pushing onshore from the Gulf.
Cooler air moves in behind the front. Highs will be climb into the upper 70s Friday, but the cool wind will make it feel cooler. Expect gusty winds sustained between 15-25mph and gusts closer to 30mph. We still have a 30% chance of off and on light rain tomorrow.
Saturday looks similar, we won’t be bone dry- areas of light drizzle will be pushed onshore by gusty winds, accounting for 30% chances for rain. Temperatures will be cooler, waking up in the upper 60s and warming up into the mid 70s.
For Halloween, expect to wake up in the low 60s and warming up merely into the upper 70s under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures turn cool to chilly for Trick-Or-Treating.
Next week looks sunny, clear, and crisp. Expect overnight lows in the 60s and afternoon highs in the low 80s.
