Afternoon storms yield to dry start to weekend in Tampa

Typical summertime storms will return to the Tampa area this afternoon, but drier air is on the way, creating pleasant conditions heading into the weekend.

Rain chances are 50 percent today, and a layer of clouds will keep highs today only around 90, News Channel 8 meteorologist Julie Phillips said.

The storms will form inland this afternoon and push toward the coast tonight.

Rain chances dip to 30 percent Friday and Saturday, before an area of deep tropical moisture in the Gulf arrives Sunday into Monday, making for a wet start to the work week.
