Gusts of wind today ahead of tomorrow’s front
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – With the conditions warm and humid, watch for low cloud or fog this morning. Once those clouds burn off, temperatures climb into the mid-80s this afternoon.
Winds will at times be gusty from the south and southwest. The chance of rain is only 10%, and mainly for the central regions of the state. The east coast is more likely to have afternoon and evening storms.
A cold front is finally moving south into our region tomorrow morning, bringing widespread showers and even thunderstorms. The rain starts north of I-4 in the morning and spreads south by afternoon.
Some storms can bring damaging gusts of wind. Most of our region is at a slight risk of severe storms. It’s a 2 out of 5 in terms of risk.
Clouds and rain make it slightly cooler with highs in the low 80s tomorrow, but the cold front will bring unusually cool air for Friday and the weekend.
Highs will only be in the 70s on Friday and Saturday, and a breeze will make it feel even cooler. The humidity will be low, so it should be a good weekend to be outdoors. We enter the mid-70s on Sunday.
The cool down is brief and we are back into the upper mid 80s next week. No rain is expected mid-week.
