TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) -The evening will be pleasant with temperatures falling into the upper 60s overnight. It will stay dry but there will be passing clouds and it will feel muggier.
The mugginess will not last long. A strong cold front will pass through Thursday bringing storms and then cooler air.
The storms associated with the front will arrive tomorrow morning. Most of us will get through the morning commute mostly dry, but you should bring your lunch to work, so you don’t have to risk getting caught in a downpour.
The line of showers and storms pushes south through the day. Embedded in these storms could be some strong gusty winds and an isolated tornado or two.
This is the same system that has produced many tornadoes across the Southeast. Thankfully, it will be weakening as it makes it to Florida.
Behind the front, cooler air arrives, and highs will be in the upper 60s on Friday afternoon. Friday night, we drop into the upper 40s and low 50s.
Saturday starts out cool and dry, but clouds increase and eventually showers return by the evening. Highs stay in the 60s Saturday. The rain hovers around Saturday night and Sunday morning before clearing out by early afternoon. Sunday will feel quite chilly with highs only in the low-mid 60s.
We are in an active weather pattern. Another batch of rain is expected to pass through Tuesday into Wednesday keeping temperatures below average, likely through the end of the month.
