Slightly less hot, humid in Tampa area today

A weak cold front passing through Central Florida has made it slightly less hot and humid in the Tampa Bay area, according to forecasters.

The National Weather Service still calls for highs in the low 90s and lows in the low 70s.

But the lower humidity means the heat index will be more tolerable than in recent days.

There is a 20 percent chance for isolated sprinkles today, the weather service said.

The cold front is also helping to push Cristobal, now upgraded to a hurricane, away from the U.S. East Coast.

Cristobal has moved away from the Bahamas, leaving a swath of soaked Caribbean islands and at least five fatalities.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said that by early Tuesday the hurricane was centered about 610 miles southwest of Bermuda. The storm was projected to gradually take an even more northeastward track.
