TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – After a dry start we saw building clouds and a few storms develop this afternoon. The inland downpours will fade this evening and temperatures will remain in the muggy zone. Expect overnight temperatures to only get down to 80°.
After a warm start in the low 80s, we warm up into the low 90s Tuesday. Afternoon highs will top out at 91°, feeling more like 102° when you consider the humidity. Expect partly cloudy skies to begin with and building clouds during the afternoon. A few afternoon storms will fire up along the sea breeze, expect most of the rain to be to the east of I-75 during the afternoon and early evening hours.
Wednesday begins in the upper 70s under partly cloudy skies. Expect to warm up to around 90° with afternoon downpours expected. Winds will be out of the southwest between 5-10 mph.
Thursday a westerly (onshore) flow develops. That will limit our potential for afternoon storms and push red tide and it’s effects up along our coastline. The onshore flow continues into the middle of next week.
Late this week into this weekend we will wake up around 80° and warm up to around 90°. Most afternoons we will see 30% chances for showers.
