Your Friday and Weekend forecast are full of summer heat and very little rainfall. Look for sunny mornings, and partly cloudy afternoons the next three days. High temperatures will be around 93 in Tampa, and even hotter farther inland. The Heat Index will run between 100 - 106 degrees, so stay hydrated, take frequent breaks in the shade, and check on your neighbors too!
Only isolated thunderstorms will be possible in the heat of the day, but for a handful of people that could mean a pretty strong afternoon thunderstorm with brief heavy rain, and frequent lightning, so be cautious in the late afternoon hours.
We are still watching this Low Pressure by the Panhandle as it is expected to drift north and get absorbed by a cold front on Saturday. Until this happens though keep an eye on it, and your forecast so just in case anything changes, you will be armed with the latest information!
