After heavy rains, Tampa Bay weather patterns returning to normal

ST. PETERSBURG — After several days of nearly nonstop rain, weather in the Tampa Bay area will return to a typical summer pattern in the next few days.

High temperatures will likely be 90 to 92 degrees Sunday and Monday, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Brian McClure. The higher temperatures will bring back a typical June rainfall pattern, with scattered afternoon showers both days.

Even with minimal rain the rest of the month, this week's storms were enough to break the record for rainfall for June.

"We could not get a single drop for the rest of the month and we would still already be way above average," McClure said.

Rainfall of more than 2 inches in 24 hours had been reported in Brandon as of 11 p.m. Friday, and Valrico received almost 2¼ inches in the same period. The 24-hour total at Tampa International Airport was just over 1½ inches, while St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport reported just under 2 inches.

    MINNEAPOLIS — The Rays sure made it interesting Sunday, taking an early lead, watching their beleaguered bullpen blow it, rallying to tie in the ninth, battling the Twins to take a lead in the 14th then giving it up again.
