TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — We are in a wetter-than-normal pattern for the next few days. A steady wind from the Gulf of Mexico pushes showers onshore even in the morning. We topped out in the low 90s despite the showers and clouds.
We are drying out this evening, it will be cloudy and muggy overnight with temperatures sinking down into the upper 70s and low 80s.
With this pattern, showers tend to end earlier in the evening, so rain chances are quite low by sunset. The clouds and humidity stick around, of course. Overnight lows will be in the upper 70s.
Watch for a few passing showers Saturday morning, and the rain chance goes up to 70% by the mid day into the early afternoon. Some heavy downpours are possible. It won’t rain all day, but be prepared for a storm at any time. Highs will be in the mid-upper 80s.
This pattern lingers into Sunday, so we could get a few morning showers, and the afternoon rain chance is 60%.
By Monday, we transition back into a more typical summer thunderstorm pattern with most of the storms coming in the afternoon and evening. We should get more sunshine, so afternoon highs return to the low 90s all next week.
