Humidity, afternoon rain will linger around Tampa area

TBO.com staff

Another hot, steamy day is on tap for the Tampa Bay area today as increased moisture creates higher humidity and afternoon chances for rain.

A few showers could move onshore from the Gulf of Mexico this morning, but the rain mainly will form inland and move west this afternoon, News Channel 8 meteorologist Julie Phillips said.

After some morning patchy fog, chances for afternoon storms will reach 50 percent — a day after some areas around Tampa received some heavy, soaking rain.

Highs will reach 90 today, and the rain will taper off tonight, with lows dropping to the low- to mid-70s.

Drier conditions will help drop the chances of rain this weekend.
