MAX DEFENDER 8 FORECAST: Showers fade after sunset, waking up to coastal downpours Tuesday


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The stray showers drifting eastward across our area will mostly fade after sunset. We can’t rule out a light shower wandering onshore overnight while temperatures sink down to around 77°.

Citrus, Hernando, and Pasco counties may wake up to an early morning downpour on Tuesday. Coastal area can expect a passing down pour to push past during the late morning to mid day. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s for the afternoon while chances for rain shift inland.

Expect a similar forecast for Wednesday, with coastal showers moving onshore during the morning to mid day and primarily inland for the afternoon and evening hours.

A tropical low with a small chance of developing heads north through the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday. The low should be near the Florida Panhandle Thursday and help increase our rain chances as it heads northeas

The enhanced chances for rain thanks to the tropical moisture makes Thursday an umbrella alert day- we expect heavy downpours, especially along the coast. It’s too soon to tell if the timing will make the Bucs Game wet, we will keep you updated as it becomes more clear.

In better news- looks like we will dry out on Saturday!
