Worst of Tampa Bay area storms over

More rain is expected throughout the Tampa Bay area this afternoon and into Monday morning, but the worst is over.

Thunderstorms drenched the bay area with between 1 and 2 inches of rain this early this morning, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker, but the storms will lighten up heading into the evening.

"Across Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, it looks like the threat of widespread, heavy rain is over," Linker said.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely pop up throughout the rest of the day, with additional showers and thunderstorms Monday.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid to upper 70s, according to the National Weather Service.
