Familiar forecast: Hot, muggy, chance for afternoon storms

TAMPA - Hot, muggy with a chance for afternoon thunderstorms. It's a typical summertime forecast for the Tampa Bay area, so today's weather should be familiar.

"When you have a lot of moisture in the air you don't cool down that much," said News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann.

A humid morning will give way to a 30 percent chance for rain this afternoon, forecasters say.

Expect highs near 90 degrees and lows in the mid-70s - and expect them throughout the week.

Rains chances may diminish a bit later in week, Spann said.
