Here's your Tampa area weather forecast for Tuesday evening, as well as a preview of Wednesday and the rest of the week.
- Warm Wednesday
- Rain chance Friday AM
- End of week cool blast
The front passed through, bringing beneficial rains to some areas, while others didn’t get a single drop. The rain is gone, as the front stalled just to our south. There’s no big push of cooler air, but it will be slightly less humid into Wednesday.
Skies will go from partly cloudy to mostly clear into early Wednesday morning. Lows will be more comfortable with most spots in the 60s, with some upper 50s in Citrus to Hernando county, and some spots not dropping below 70 right by the water.

Wednesday will start out very nice, but end up really warm again in the afternoon, with highs back up around 91. This is mainly due to the fact that our winds will shift again and come from the east, which will push the warmest air across the state to our side and not allow our cooler sea breeze to come in off the gulf.
Skies will be mostly sunny all day, with any stray shower chance south of the bay where the front stalled out.
Wednesday night will be mostly clear, with lows mainly in the 60s.
Thursday will feature increasing humidity, with winds shifting again and coming from the south. This will result in partly cloudy skies and a small chance of an isolated shower in the afternoon, mainly inland away from the coast. Highs will top out in the upper 80s.
A cold front is on the way Thursday night to Friday morning. It will bring a chance of rain with it as well as a blast of much cooler air for Friday into the weekend.
NATIONAL: A frontal system that has moved off much of the East Coast will continue to bring showers and a few thunderstorms to portions of New England, before moving offshore tonight.
Farther west, scattered showers are expected across much of the Great Lakes as an upper-level trough passes overhead.
An upper-level trough crossing the northern Rockies is forecast to move into the central U.S. later today. Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected, starting across portions of the southern and central plains late tonight, and spreading east into the Mississippi and Ohio valleys on Wednesday.
These showers and storms are expected to bring additional heavy rainfall to areas where the ground is still saturated from recent heavy rains. Thus, flash flooding will be possible for some areas. Severe thunderstorms are also possible on Wednesday across portions of the western and central Gulf Coast.
CARIBBEAN: Moderate trade winds prevail over the Caribbean. This general pattern will persist for the next day or so. Over Hispaniola, daytime is producing showers and thunderstorms over and just south of the Dominican Republic.
