Strong high pressure anchored north of the Tampa Bay area will keep sunny, hot and dry conditions over the region through Memorial Day.  The only exception to the rule is a slight chance of late day showers and storms across our far southern zones on Monday. 

 A tight pressure gradient will keep elevated easterly winds across the area, with robust surges at times.  Daytime highs will be in the upper 80's and low 90's.  Moisture moving across the peninsula from the Atlantic will give us a 20% chance of showers and storms Tuesday through Thursday. 

Potential development of an area of low pressure off the southeast coast of Florida could increase our rain chances toward the end of the week.
