Spotty showers as front approaches Tampa area

If Tampa Bay area residents aren’t dealing with today’s numerous spotty showers, they will have to deal with intense heat and sticky conditions.

A front that is dipping the south will produce small isolated areas of rain throughout the day, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

After a steamy start, highs will reach the low-90s, with extra clouds and quick-moving showers as the approaching cold front helps to drive additional moisture off the Gulf of Mexico.

Drier air will move into the area once the front passes on Wednesday, but with continued high temperatures.
