TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We’re starting dry this morning with temperatures quickly rising to the low 90C.
Watch out for some scattered showers near the coast around midday, and storms will move inland in the afternoon. Overall, the chance of rain is still only 20%.
The chance of rain increases up to 40% tomorrow and there could even be some showers near the coast in the morning. Storms will push inland again in the afternoon and early evening. The earlier rains are helping to keep the highs closer to 90 degrees.
Over the weekend we have a 30% chance of afternoon storms with highs in the low 90’s. Seasonal humidity is to be expected, so humidity should not be too high.
The chance of rain remains at 30% for most of next week.
We’re keeping an eye on Hurricane Lee in the Atlantic. It will continue to gain strength as it moves north-west. It moves slowly, so there may be a chance that the current steering currents will change. At this point, the models turn the storm north before it hits the US coast.
