TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We topped out at 88° degrees today, tying our high temperature record for today at the Tampa Airport. We saw a few scattered coastal showers pushing southward through our coastal counties. The showers will push out of our area or fade around sunset.
Tonight our skies will clear as slightly cooler, slightly drier air moves in. Temperatures will cool down into the mid to upper 60s, feeling nice and crisp Friday morning.
Friday will still be warm, but the lower humidity will make it a bit more comfortable. Highs still reach the mid 80s. There is a 10% chance for a stray shower to get pushed across the state with our Northeasterly winds.
There is a 20% chance of an afternoon shower Saturday as the humidity begins to increase. Expect temperatures in the mid to upper 80s Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The rain chance remains at 20% Sunday- with warm afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s.
An area of low pressure may develop in the Atlantic early next week and drift toward Florida’s east coast. Depending on how close it gets to Florida, our rain chances will increase for the middle of next week.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Lisa has made landfall in Central America, and Hurricane Martin is transitioning into a post-tropical system in the cooler waters of the northern Atlantic.
The low pressure that may impact Florida next week has a 30% chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical system.
