Hot, muggy work week for Tampa Bay area
A hot, steamy work week is ahead for the Tampa Bay area, leading up to the official start of summer on Friday. After a muggy start, temperatures today will reach the low-90s. But high humidity will bring the heat index to near 100 degrees, News Channel 8 meteorologist Bryan Bennett said. Storms will develop this afternoon, primarily along I-75 and pushing to the east. Highs throughout the week will be in the low-90s with lows in the mid- to upper-70s.
