ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — After some lighter rainfall this morning the sun is back out adding more energy to the atmosphere. We have plenty of moisture to work with and now that the atmosphere is recharging more storms will be possible this afternoon and evening.
Expect heavy downpours and storms this afternoon so keep the umbrella and rain jacket nearby today! It will continue to be hot, sticky and uncomfortable with areas picking up rain seeing some rain cooled air.
More scattered storms for the next few days should lead to a good amount of rainfall across most of the area. That will put a small dent in the drought conditions across the area.
It does look like the rain chances will start to fall this weekend but more so into next week. Drier air move and slightly lower humidity at the surface will be possible.
