Tampa area forecast looks a lot like the day before

Expect an encore of Tuesday's weather pattern today in the Tampa Bay area.

The means above-average temperatures in the afternoon and severe storms rushing through late in the day.

The summer storm pattern is the result of Florida's east coast sea breeze meeting a west coast sea breeze near Interstate 75, according to News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann.

Tuesday's line of storms brought damaging winds and power outages to parts of Pinellas County and a waterspout over Old Tampa Bay.

Regional highs will be in the low 90s, again with a heat index around 100. The lows will be in the mid-70s. There is a 40 percent chance of rain, according to Spann.
