Patchy storms developing in the afternoon | WFLA

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We have plenty of morning sunshine, so temperatures are warming up quickly. Afternoon highs will be in the low 90s, but the humidity will make it feel even warmer.

Look for a few temporary showers this afternoon. Storms typically move inland during the early evening hours and ease after sunset.


The late storms could last longer tomorrow night. We’ll still reach the low 90s Thursday afternoon, but the chance of rain increases to 40% and some inland storms will continue past sunset.

The chance of rain on Friday increases to 60%, and the storms that form will move toward the Gulf of Mexico instead of moving inland. With Hurricane Lee to the north, there will be stronger northeasterly breezes pushing these storms toward the coast.


Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll get a break from the humidity this weekend. The front will remain directly north of us on Saturday. Our best rain chances will be south of I-4 in the afternoon.

Rain chances remain high through the first half of next week.

In the tropics, Hurricane Lee is pushing further north and may bring strong winds and waves along the northeast coast. Hurricane Margot remains out at sea and a tropical wave is likely to develop in the central Atlantic. This wave could follow a similar path to Lee, but it’s still too early to know for sure.
