The same cold front that is causing devastating flooding in the Florida Panhandle will begin to sink to the south, increasing rain chances Friday after another hot, humid day.
Highs again will approach 90 today, with a 40 percent chance of rain — primarily inland this afternoon — with high humidity and steamy, summer-like conditions, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.
Lows will only drop to the low-70s, with some overnight showers possible.
Rain chances bump up to 60 percent on Friday as the front sags into the Tampa Bay region and stalls. Some downpours are likely, and the rain will linger into Saturday.
Highs Friday and Saturday will only reach the low-80s, before ithings begin to dry out Sunday.
