TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was sunny and warm, with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 80s. Drier air limited, but did not eliminate our chances for showers this evening. A few downpours pushed westward towards our coastline during the afternoon, but rain chances are not expected during the evening hours.

Tonight will be lovely, with comfortable temperatures, a nice breeze, and slowly sinking levels of humidity overnight. Expect a bright moon to rise late this evening under mostly clear skies.

Waking up cool & crisp Tuesday in Tampa Bay

Tuesday morning will be only a tad short of spectacular! Expect cool temperatures in the mid to upper 60s and slightly lower humidity, feeling crisp for a short while. The drier air keeps our skies clear and sunny and almost eliminates our chances for showers. There is a 10% chance for a stray inland shower during the afternoon.

We keep the rain chance at 20% Wednesday, but it will feel different. Winds start coming off the Gulf of Mexico, and this onshore wind pattern brings in higher humidity. The few showers that do form will push inland and over to the east coast.

It’ll stay quite muggy for the end of the week with spotty afternoon storms forming.
