ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Slow-moving storms will slowly die down this evening with partly cloudy skies returning overnight.

  • Onshore breeze
  • Storms move east
  • Beryl staying south

Lows will be in the low to mid 70s inland and upper 70s at that coast.

Saturday will start with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Scattered storms will build as the sea breeze moves in from the gulf, but there will not be as much coverage as the past few days due to a stronger onshore breeze from the west resulting in most of the storms moving more quickly eastward and inland.

The best coverage of storms will propagate inland east of i-75 during the afternoon with most of the storms on the other side of the state by the evening. The coverage in the coastal counties will be 30% to inland areas 40 percent.

Highs will be in the upper 80s at the coast and low 90s inland. Saturday night will be partly cloudy to mostly clear with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Sunday will bring mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with a 40 percent coverage storms. Some showers or storms will be possible along the coast early, but the afternoon will be more active inland.  Highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday will start sunny and dry with scattered storms increasing in coverage late that afternoon into the evening. Highs will be in the low 90s. The coverage will end up being at 50 percent late.

Tuesday and Wednesday will bring mainly afternoon scattered storms with a 40 percent coverage.

Next Thursday into Friday is still in question but as of right now it looks like moisture will increase as a batch of leftover tropical moisture passes by from the remnants of Beryl.
