ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — There's a huge amount of moisture in our atmosphere right now so even in the middle of the night you can get a heavy thunderstorm in this type of pattern.
With that being said, expect variably cloudy skies into early Wednesday morning with some scattered storms still in the region.

Morning lows will be in the mid to upper 70s inland and near 80 at the coast.
Scattered storms will get a quick start again for Wednesday with many of them in coastal regions during the morning. They will then tend to spread and scatter inland throughout the day with the bulk of the coverage going east late in the day.
Highs will be held down slightly below average in the upper 80s due to abundant cloud cover.
Thursday will feature a stronger onshore breeze, so scattered storms will get a quicker start in the morning and move faster to the east that day.

Skies will be mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s.
Friday will feature the same pattern with storms moving eastward. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
Slightly drier air will move into our upper atmosphere this weekend. It will not be enough to remove our rain chance totally, but it will be enough to decrease the coverage down to about 40 percent.
