TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — We started the day with a few showers making their way onshore. They continued inland and grew in coverage and intensity during the early afternoon. One plus of the earlier rain is slightly cooler temperatures- we only topped out in the upper 80s and the fact that we dry out earlier in the evening

Onshore flow means earlier showers.

This wind pattern sticks around tomorrow, so expect a few morning showers Friday. The coverage of rain is greater tomorrow. Rain chances increase to 60% with highs near 90 degrees.

Our best rain chance is Saturday afternoon and evening. Numerous downpours are expected, and the rain chance is 70%. The extra clouds and rain help keep highs in the upper 80s. Forecast models hint that Saturday’s rain could longer into the evening hours.

We bring the rain chance back to 60% Sunday and down to 40% for most of the next week. With mostly afternoon storms next week, it gets hotter with highs in the low 90s.
