TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today we hit 95° just after the lunch hour, but showers developed just after that and cooled us quickly into the low to mid 80s. This made for a much more comfortable afternoon than the previous week or so. The cloudier skies will slowly clear this evening as temperatures stay steady, in the 80s overnight.
It stays fairly hot for the next couple of days with highs in the mid-90s and high humidity along with a 50% rain chance Tuesday.
Wednesday the chance for rain increase to 70%, the showers fire up early- in the morning hours along the coast. The showers track eastward during the middle of the day and east of our area by the evening hours, leaving us dry, cloudy, and not-as-hot for the evening.
Better rain chances and slightly lower temperatures will come in at the end of the week with more moisture moving in. Temperatures get even hotter once again for the weekend and early next week with the good rain chances continuing.
Out in the tropics, a couple of tropical waves are being monitored for development. Both tropical waves have a low chance of developing over the next several days at a 20%.
