More humidity, inland storms for Tampa area

A day after some areas received record rainfall, coastal areas could see one more day of a possible stray shower, before shifting winds produce mainly inland storms starting Thursday.

Highs will reach 90 again today, with humid conditions from winds coming off the Gulf of Mexico that could bring an isolated chance of rain near the beaches, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

More locations could see rain by noon, with more storms east of Interstate 75 this afternoon and tapering off tonight.

On Thursday, the winds will come from the east. That means storms firing up inland, and shifting to the west. Seasonal rain chances increase to 50 percent Thursday and heading into the weekend.

On Tuesday, Tampa International Airport received a record 4.5 inches of rain.
