summer rain every afternoon | WFLA
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Higher rain chances are expected each day this week, with the heaviest and most widespread rain occurring in the late afternoon and evening.
Strong, gusty winds can occur during some of these downpours. The Storm Prediction Center has classified inland areas as at risk level 1 for severe storms.
A similar pattern is emerging for the next few days. The first showers will hit near the coast around noon, with the heaviest and strongest storms hitting further inland later in the day.
This pattern changes at the weekend. A low pressure area is strengthening off the east coast of Florida. With the counter-clockwise winds around this low, drier air is drawn into the state.
The chance of rain drops significantly over Memorial Day weekend. We’ll even notice slightly less humid conditions.
Due to the drier air, it will be quite warm in the afternoons, with highs of over 80 to almost 90 degrees.
With hurricane season only a few days away, the National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on an area that has a 10% chance of developing if it drifts north. It shouldn’t be a problem for Florida.
