Early rain, but late clearing for Tampa area

Wednesday’s widespread showers will linger into the morning, but drier air is on its way, reducing rain chances this afternoon and leading to a pleasant weekend.

Storms lasted into the overnight hours, and some areas to the south of Tampa will see rain as showers continue to stream in off the Gulf of Mexico and push inland due to a cold front stalled to the north, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs will stay below 90 again today.

Fewer storms will develop later this afternoon, and once the drier air in the atmpsohere arrives, rain chances will drop to 30 percent on Friday and into the weekend, with highs eclipsing 90.
