Winds continue to stream in off the Gulf of Mexico, generating early coastal showers that will move inland this afternoon.
Some areas in Tampa Bay could see a few storms along the coast, but more predominantly east of I-75 later today, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.
Highs will reach the low-90s with high humidity.
The rain will ease at sunset, but could return Saturday morning along the coast. Heavier rains are expected inland in the afternoon.
