Near-record heat expected through the work week in Tampa Bay

Near-record heat expected through the work week in Tampa Bay, While the temperature and humidity levels remained a bit below summertime averages in and around Tampa Bay on Monday, the overall weather pattern looked and felt like summer across the area.

High temperatures reached between 85 and 90 degrees, with dew point temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees. As the sea breeze moved in from the Gulf of Mexico, a few afternoon thunderstorms popped up east of Interstate 75, though most of these precipitation areas were limited to locations well south of the Interstate 4 corridor.

The almost-summerlike weather pattern is expected to persist across west-central Florida through the rest of the work week. Residents and vacationers can expect warm temperatures, moderately-high humidity levels, and isolated thunderstorm development over interior sections every day through Friday.

Work week weather for Tampa Bay

The forecast for areas in and around Tampa Bay for Tuesday through Friday calls for partly cloudy skies and above average temperatures. Thunderstorm development should be limited primarily to the inland areas through Thursday, though isolated showers and thunderstorms may develop closer to the coast as a front approaches the area on Friday.

After morning lows ranging from 65 to 72 degrees, highs will climb to between 82 and 92 degrees every afternoon.
