Tampa Bay Weather
Morning rain possible in Tampa as moisture drifts off Gulf
The moist and humid air that has saturated the the Tampa Bay area in recent days could result in a wet commute for area motorists. Added moisture that is streaming east off the Gulf of Mexico is producing pockets of storms and stray showers, especially along the coast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said. The rain will continue through the mid-morning, ahead of another hot humid day with highs in the low-90s - a pattern that will last through the weekend. Our typical afternoon storms return later today, starting around lunchtime and most developing along I-75 and drifting east.Rain chances will lessen tonight, with lows dropping to the mid- to upper-70s.
