Hot and steamy, even by Tampa’s standards

Tampa area residents should be used to hot and humid conditions, but today — and this weekend — are shaping up to be especially oppressive.

Some areas felt like the low-80s even before sunrise, and the temperatures today will surpass 90, under partly cloudy skies and with steamy conditions, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

There is a 40 percent chance of mainly afternoon storms, forming along Interstate 75 around noon and pushing inland.

Expect similar conditions through the weekend, as Gulf winds will produce possible early coastal showers and the added humidity.
