MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Evening turns mild, Tracking storms moving in Friday


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Happy Wednesday evening! We topped out in the warm mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. We will turn mild this evening and eventually cool down into the upper 60s. Expect high clouds to filter in overnight, holding us a tad more mild, in the upper 60s overnight.

We wake up to increasing clouds on Thursday and chances for scattered showers later in the day into the evening hours. We will warm into the low 80s under mostly cloudy skies.

Friday is an Umbrella Alert Day for rounds of showers and storms, some of which could be strong. A low pressure crosses the state from the Gulf of Mexico, bringing the off and on downpours all day on Friday. Some areas could get as much as 2-3 inches of rain. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Even outside of the potentially strong storms we expect Friday to be windy.

The showers wind down Saturday morning as the system finally heads to the northeast. Cooler air moves in behind it. Highs on Saturday will stay in the low to mid 70s, and we drop into the 50s Saturday night.

Sunday will start out chilly, in the 50s and only warm into the crisp mid 70s despite the clear and sunny skies.

Don’t forget! It’s time to set the clocks back Saturday night and get an extra hour of sleep.

The cool, crisp weather sticks around through mid next week – enjoy!
