Dry air means relief from torrential rains in Tampa area

Finally, the Tampa Bay area will see some relief from the torrential afternoon downpours that have flooded some areas in the last couple of weeks.

A high-pressure system to the north is pushing clouds to the south, bringing drier air and gradually reducing rain chances throughout the week, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs today will reach 90 under mostly sunny skies, before those afternoon storms once again form inland today and drift toward the west coast tonight.

Rain chances today are 40 percent.

The region will begin to dry out Tuesday, as the high-pressure system reduces rain chances to 30 percent on Tuesday. Clearer skies will mean slightly higher temperatures in the low- to mid-90s.
