Increased humidity, afternoon storms for Tampa area

Published:   |   Updated: July 21, 2014 at 06:10 AM

High humidity will be the rule around the Tampa Bay region today, creating sticky conditions this morning and a higher chance of potentially strong afternoon thunderstorms.

Winds off the Gulf of Mexico, coupled with the increased moisture in the air, will generate the showers, which will start around noon and push inland this afternoon, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs today will approach 90.

The rain will taper off tonight, and a similar pattern is expected on Tuesday.
