ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A storm system tracking east across the country will bring a good chance of rain to Tampa Bay Tuesday night through Wednesday. The highest rain chance this evening will fall north of I-4, but some showers could filter further south late. Otherwise, expect a mostly cloudy night with overnight lows falling in the mid 60s. 

Our next best chance of rain and storms return Wednesday ahead of a cold front, allowing highs to still climb in the mid to upper 70s in the afternoon, but then begin to fall towards the evening as the front pushes through the area.

As the rain tapers off Wednesday night, cooler air will then begin to arrive. High temperatures Thursday will be in the low 60s with low temperatures dropping into the 40s for several nights.
