TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was warm & partly cloudy, we topped out in the mid to upper 80s, with cooler temperatures along the coastline, thanks to a building sea breeze. This evening will slowly cool down after sunset, as an isolated chance for an inland shower fades.

Temperatures will sink slowly tonight, getting down into the low 70s by Tuesday morning. We may see some patchy fog by sunrise, but it will be short lived as temperatures will warm quickly under partly cloudy skies. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. There is another tiny chance for an inland shower to pop up during the later afternoon and into the evening hours.

Rain chances build over the next 5 days, peaking on Saturday.

Tropical moisture spreads north for the end of the week, and our rain chances increase significantly. We go to a 50% chance Friday and a 70% chance Saturday.

Scattered showers linger into early next week as well.

The extra clouds and showers help hold highs in the mid-upper 80s, but it will be quite humid when it’s not raining. Looks like we are transitioning into our rainy season, which typically starts around May 25th.
