As the subtropical ridge shifts south of the Tampa Bay area, our winds will turn westerly for our dominant steering flow.  This change of direction will result in a much drier weather pattern for us over the next several days. This will push greater rain chances from Sarasota to Arcadia and points southward. The bulk of the showers/storms that do develop in the afternoon will stay east of I-75.  Area beaches will see plenty of sunshine with high temps around 90.

When you factor in the humidity, along with the actual air temperature, it will feel like temps in the mid to upper 90's. The UV index for Tampa on Wednesday is 12, so make sure to use plenty of sunscreen with a high SPF number.
