Tornado warning in effect for Hillsborough Co. - WRBL

Tornado warning in effect for Hillsborough Co.

Updated:

ALERT: A tornado warning is in effect for western Hillsborough County until 8 p.m.

Forecast:

TUE: 40% Rain Chance; Highs near 93

WED: 40% Rain Chance; Highs near 93

Details:

Just like we had Saturday and Sunday, we are going to see sunny skies give way to scattered showers and thunderstorms during the late afternoon and evening (especially along and west of I-75). The culprit for the evening storms is the collision of the east coast sea breeze and the Gulf sea breeze. This will occur between 5 and 9pm near I-75, then what ever storms do develop will drift into the Gulf of Mexico. Not everyone will see rain, but the scattered storms that do develop will produce heavy rain, frequent lightning, and even an isolated waterspout is not out of the question.

Overnight, skies will be mostly clear with low temperatures in the upper 70s. On Tuesday we will have a very similar day with a beautiful morning and scattered afternoon/evening t-storms. Skies will go from mostly sunny to partly cloudy around 1pm. Spotty showers will develop inland around 2pm and drift toward the Gulf coast. By late afternoon and evening we will see a 40% chance for scattered storms along the coast once again. High temps tomorrow will be in the lower to middle 90s.

Slightly drier on Wednesday, but we will still see a 30-40 percent chance for mainly coastal storms. A "TUTT" low will enhance our rain chances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
