Summer has gotten an early start here
The summer solstice officially begins early Friday, meteorologist Steve Jerve says, but the Tampa Bay area already is very much in a summertime pattern, with warm days and mostly afternoon storms. This evening may bring us a shower or storm and evening temps in the mid 80s. Overnight lows will be in the upper 70s. A morning shower or storm is possible near coastal areas. Thursday, expect sun and clouds with a 50 percent chance of storms, with highs in the low 90s.
