The humidity levels have been creeping back us and as you step outside this morning you will feel the difference. We do have less cloud cover around so skies will be mostly sunny this morning with partly sunny skies this afternoon. There will be more clouds south of Tampa especially from Sarasota to Fort Myers. Don't forget your sunglasses though as much more sun will fill the skies north of Tampa! The ENE flow continues today and with the humidity levels increasing we will see a few pop up showers and storms develop. Rain chance is 30% mainly after 2 p.m.
Similar conditions and forecasts will persist through Saturday with highs near 90 and rain chances 30-40%. By Sunday a cold front stalls across the area bringing a few more clouds and keeping our rain chances near 40%. Believe it or not, but a tropical system off of the coast of Baja, Mexico could bring extra moisture our way by Tuesday of next week. We will be tracking the higher rain chances over the next few days.
Today: Partly sunny skies with afternoon showers and storms 30%. Winds NE 10 mph with highs near 89.
Tonight: Partly cloudy skies and mild. Winds light from the NE with lows in the low to mid 70s.
