Showers, scattered thunderstorms expected to soak Tampa Bay area

Rainy weather is expected to move in from the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the Tampa Bay, forecasters say.

Wednesday afternoon the rain will move inland, east of the Tamp Bay area where temperatures will be slightly higher, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

There is a 50 percent chance for rain and thunderstorms.

"It's when you are near those thunderstorms when things start to become a problem," Marquez said of residents planning activities outside.

The high temperature will be around 91 degrees Wednesday, but it could feel as hot as 97 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain chances will drop to about 40 percent as heat index values are expected to spike to 100 on Thursday, forecasters said.
