Afternoon storms will ease overnight in Tampa area

Memorial Day was the unofficial start of summer, so fittingly after a hot and humid day, some Tampa Bay areas again were hammered by severe thunderstorms.

The storms are forecast to ease tonight, with lows around 73 tonight, and starting again Tuesday afternoon, News Channel 8 meteorologist Steve Jerve said.

The storms, which included reports of penny-sized hail in the Carrollwood area, sparked a severe thunderstorm warning in Hillsborough and Pasco counties late in the afternoon.

Tuesday looks like a repeat of today, with highs back near 90 and a 30 percent chance of isolated afternoon thunderstorms.
