Showers and storms are in the forecast through Wednesday
Your work week will start off stormy! Meteorologist Ashley Batey here and we have a very unsettled pattern in place through Wednesday.
A frontal boundary will stall across the Tampa Bay area allowing several waves of low pressure to move across the area. That will keep showers and thunderstorms in the forecast through Wednesday evening. Monday is looking to be slightly drier than Tuesday or Wednesday, but scattered showers will impact 50-60% of the area today.The highest rainfall totals will be north of Tampa Bay along the Nature Coast,
We will see a little break in the action before another round moves through midday Tuesday through Tuesday evening. A final round of weather will push through during the day on Wednesday morning before a cold front finally clears us out by Thursday. Rain coverage Tuesday through Wednesday will be around 90%. We'll be watching the storms very closely for the possibility of severe weather and will alert you immediately if you need to take cover. Stay weather aware as Tuesday has the best chance of bringing us strong storms.
On Thursday, sustained northwesterly winds from 10 - 15 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph will bring a cooler and drier air mass to the area. High temps on Thursday will be near 79 degrees, with lows dropping into the mid 60's for the Bay area. Right now next weekend looks great with mainly dry conditions and mostly sunny skies.
