Steamy day leads to stormy afternoon in Tampa area

The strong thunderstorms that dumped rain on some areas on Monday will return, along with the high humidity and steamy temperatures.

After a sunny start, the isolated storms will begin to form around noon and move inland this afternoon, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

There is a 40 percent chance of rain today, primarily later today and east of Interstate 75, with highs climbing past 90.

Rain chances bump up starting Thursday as a stronger southwesterly breeze forms off the Gulf of Mexico.
