Summer may not officially start for another month, but it's definitely going to feel like it this week as highs this week could creep near record levels.

Sunny skies, sticky humidity, and just a remote chance of a stray afternoon shower will be the rule across Tampa Bay approaching Memorial Day weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Lows are starting off in the low to mid 70s, and highs will ease past 90 with the possibility of an isolated popup storm primarily inland as rain off the East Coast pushes onshore, forecasters said. The west coast seabreeze could produce a stray shower as well across Tampa Bay.

By Wednesday and heading into the weekend, the forecast high of 94 for Tampa would be just 1-2 degrees shy of the record for those dates.
