Tracking t-storms Friday, even wetter Saturday
Chief Meteorologist Jim Van Fleet here tracking thunderstorms from the Gulf all the way across to the Heartland with heavy downpours and frequent lightning expected in each round that develops and crosses over Tampa Bay.
Storms are slowly moving NE at 10-20 mph. With saturated grounds these storms could produce an additional .50" up to 4" of rainfall through Sunday.
Skies will be partly cloudy when it is not raining, with temps generally in the mid to upper 80's. Like the last couple days, breaks in the rain are expected throughout the evening.
A flood warning continues for the Anclote River in Elfers through Friday morning.
Models are increasing rain chances as we head into the weekend. A low redeveloping in the Gulf could once again bring flooding rains this weekend. At this point we are forecasting a 60%-80% coverage of rain for the weekend.
Keep checking back as some changes are possible to the long range forecast.
Severe flooding around Pasco, July 28
