This morning a few showers are in the Gulf. Most will stay over water but coastal areas could see a brief shower this morning. Skies will be mostly cloudy and storms will be more numerous this afternoon. The SE to E winds will track storms into the Tampa Bay area late in the afternoon. Some will work back to the coast toward sunset.
Tropical moisture will fuel the 60% increase in rain chances Friday. Storms will tend to die out at night but some may last until 11 pm tonight.
We are locked in this pattern of afternoon storms through Labor Day so look for hot & humid with temps in the low to mid 90s.
A tropical wave in the east Caribbean sea has a 20% chance of developing over the next 5 days. It could move into the SW Gulf next week where it would have a better chance of organizing.
