Better coastal rain chances coming to Tampa area

Coastal areas around the Tampa Bay region will largely get a reprieve from today’s summer storms, but that could change come Thursday.

Some areas could see a stray shower early today, but the better chances start around noon, with those storms pushing east of Interstate 75 later this afternoon into tonight, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs will reach 91.

Winds off the Gulf of Mexico will generate better rain chances along the coast Thursday morning, again shifting east during the day.
