Rain chances bump up throughout Tampa area

Published:   |   Updated: June 10, 2014 at 05:51 AM

While our typical afternoon summertime storms will fire up today, more area throughout the Tampa Bay region could see rain.

The storms, primarily east of I-75 later this afternoon into the early evening, could be strong, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Highs today will reach 91, with high humidity thanks to southwesterly winds off the Gulf of Mexico, and a 30 percent chance of scattered storms as the rain drifts back to the west later tonight.

Rain chances bump up to 50 percent on Wednesday and heading into the weekend.
