Tampa Weather Today: New Heat Advisory, with limited rain chances

Today’s Heat Advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Heat index levels in several areas might exceed 111, so we advise you to take breaks from the heat whenever feasible.

There is a 30% chance of afternoon thunderstorms, although the majority of the rain will fall south of I-4. In the late afternoon, the wind from the Gulf of Mexico pushes the majority of the showers to the east coast.

Tomorrow will follow a similar pattern, with highs in the mid-90s and a heat index exceeding 110. The chance of rain remains at 30%, but a few scattered showers may start early in the day.

The pattern finally breaks on Saturday, and the storm chances start to increase. We have a 40% chance, and some of those storms linger to around sunset in the center of the state. Unfortunately, the new pattern does not bring any cooler air.

This weekend’s highs will be in the mid-upper 90s. Storms will form primarily after the hottest part of the day.

Storms will approach the Gulf of Mexico in the evenings next week. That is where we require the most rain. It will remain scorching in the low 90s.
