TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was unusual for us temperature-wise thanks to morning to mid day showers. We only topped out at 87°, which is below average, but we hit that high quite early, at 9:25am. Temperatures were lower than that during the day thanks to widespread showers and thunderstorms.
We are drying out now under mostly cloudy skies. Expect slow clearing after midnight and an overnight low of 79°.
Friday starts out sunny in the upper 70s and warms quickly. We expect a similar pattern, with coastal showers during the morning to mid day and inland showers during the afternoon. Friday will be slightly drier than Thursday was with fewer downpours firing up and pushing inland.
Saturday the forecast turns drier, with only 20% chances for an isolated shower. That does mean hotter temperatures, climbing into the low to mid 90s.
Sunday is only a tad wetter, with 30% chances for showers and afternoon temperatures in the low 90s.
The moisture in our atmosphere increases as we head through next week and our more robust chances for showers and storms return.
