TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Our weather improved throughout the day, despite the downpours that pushed onshore during the morning and mid day. Temperatures were mild, mostly in the mid to upper 70s, but some areas with a bit more sunshine saw the low 80s briefly.

This evening will cool rather slowly, sinking slowly down through the 70s, getting into the upper 60s and low 70s to start the weekend. Skies will clear slowly overnight.

Saturday will be a sunnier day with highs still in the low 80s. There’s just a 10% rain chance Saturday. A weak front passes on Sunday, so the rain chance increases to 20%.

It’ll be a little cooler Sunday and Monday, but the cool-down is short-lived. Longer range models show another front arriving in the middle of next week, but disagree on how quickly that front passes.
