Tampa Weather Today: Near record heat, with rain showers this week

The near-record heat will last through the first half of the week, with highs in the mid-90s expected across the region.

However, rain chances are increasing throughout primarily inland areas, which will aid to keep temperatures a little cooler in rainy locations.

Temperatures will rise into the mid-90s this afternoon, with temperatures feeling well beyond 100 degrees after noon. Midday, a few storms will form along the coast but soon move inland. Storms will remain scattered east of I-75 through the early evening hours before drying off for the night.

A few storms could drift back toward the coast Tuesday evening for the fourth of July but most storms should be winding down before 9 pm. A similar pattern will be in place through Wednesday with mainly dry and warm mornings, highs in the mid-90s and scattered afternoon storms.

After a busy start, the tropics have quieted down a little bit. Moreover, no new tropical activity is expected over the next seven days.
