MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Downpours drifting northward, then fading tonight


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We saw afternoon downpours developing as we topped out in the upper 80s and low 90s. Expect decent rainfall totals from today’s showers, especially over our inland counties.

The showers are drifting north this evening, and will begin to fade overnight after sunset.

We can’t rule out a few isolated showers popping up tomorrow morning, but the better chances for rain Friday afternoon build up after 2 p.m. The sea breeze will collide with the general southeasterly flow , making for the most widespread rain to the east of I-75.

Saturday is the wetter day of the weekend, with 50% chances for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Expect a partly cloudy and warm day, topping out in the upper 80s.

Sunday we will still see afternoon showers, but we don’t expect them to be as widespread or as heavy as Saturday’s downpours. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s, near 90°.

Monday kicks off a drier weather pattern for us, slightly less moist air moves over the state from the east, limiting our potential for afternoon showers to the 20-30% range for the work week. The drier conditions will make for hotter temperatures, topping out well into the low 90s.
