Rain more widespread today through Tampa area
More Tampa Bay area residents are likely to see rain today as a few more storms will form over the region. The rain will be more widespread today, with highs reaching 90 and the usual afternoon storms most prevalent from 3-8 p.m., News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said. Rain chances will increase locally heading into the weekend, when Chantal is forecast to weaken as it passes through the Caribbean and could be just an area of low pressure when it skirts the east coast of Florida.
