A clear morning and stormy afternoon is the rule again today for the Tampa Bay region, with increased rain chances by Wednesday.

After a pleasant start, some areas could see rain around 1 p.m., with the stronger popup thunderstorms inland around 3 p.m., News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs will be near 90.

The storms could push toward I-75 and toward the coast later this afternoon into tonight.

Increased moisture in the air will mean increased rain chances on Wednesday.
