Increased moisture means widespread rain for Tampa area

Chances are better today that more residents throughout the Tampa Bay region will see rain today.

An area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will create increased moisture, bringing a 50 percent chance of rain today, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

The rain, fueled by easterly winds, could start earlier, with the rain starting closer to noon in some areas. That could turn into more widespread storms later this afternoon into tonight, with some of them becoming strong and producing heavy downpours.

Highs will approach 90.

Rain chances decrease on Friday heading into the first day of summer on Saturday.
