Humidity on rise as front approaches Tampa area

Early risers will notice a bit more tropical humidity in the air, a precursor to another hot afternoon but building clouds and rain by Wednesday.

Highs today will remain above average, with some areas surpassing 90 with a small chance of an afternoon shower along the coast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Lows will drop only into the mid-70s.

Clouds will increase overnight, and there is a 60 percent chance of storms Wednesday primarily in the afternoon, ahead of a front that arrives Thursday.

Rain continues Thursday into Friday, but expect a clear, pleasant weekend with temperatures in the low- to mid-80s.
