Tampa Bay catches a break in the rain, but more is on the way Tuesday

A frontal boundary has stalled over Tampa Bay and is expected to hang around until Wednesday.

TAMPA, Fla. — After a stormy start to Monday, much of the afternoon and evening was dry for many in Tampa Bay. However, periods of heavy rain will become likely again on Tuesday.

A frontal boundary has stalled over Tampa Bay bringing storms and heavy rain at times Sunday night and Monday. It's expected to hang around until Wednesday.

Showers and some thunderstorms will continue to develop along the front, at times, through Wednesday. Storms that develop may become strong-to-severe. Damaging wind and large hail will be the biggest concern.

The latest weather forecast model projections suggest the Tampa Bay area could pick up another 1-3 inches of rainfall through Wednesday along and south of I-4. Locations north of that line may see an inch or less.  

Although thunderstorms are possible, the Storm Prediction Center isn't forecasting a widespread outbreak of severe weather.

A marginal risk for severe storms exists across the Tampa Bay area -- a level one out of five.
