Humidity up, rain chances climb around Tampa area


Published:

Increased moisture around the Tampa Bay area will fuel higher humidity and increase rain chances today.

The moisture, associated with an area of low pressure near the Yucatan Peninsula that could develop into a tropical system, is spreading across the state from the south, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Rain chances are at 50 percent today, primarily in the afternoon, with highs above average in the low-90s with high humidity and lows in the low- to mid-70s.

The rain clears tonight, with the summer-like heat and afternoon storms continuing through the weekend.
