Not much change in the forecast today.  Highs are headed back to near 90 with high heat index values.  Rain chances will be similar with the best chance east of I-75.

A pattern change will occur on Saturday as the surface winds will pick up from the ESE and not the WSW wind we have been seeing each afternoon.  That means rain chances will increase for Tampa and points west toward the coast.  Rain will be a little heavier on Saturday as a tropical wave passes over south Florida.  The best timing for rain will be in the later afternoon and evening hours.
