Strong storms possible for coastal areas today

The official start of summer is only three days away, so it’s fitting that the Tampa Bay region will experience a typical summer day today.

Skies will be sunny this morning, but clouds will build heading into a hot afternoon, when storms will fire up inland then push toward the coast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs today will be near 90, with the storms forming early this afternoon but becoming stronger as they push closer to the Tampa Bay area and west coast later this afternoon into tonight.

Rain chances again will be around 40 percent heading into the weekend.
