Feels-like temperatures around the Tampa Bay area

Tropical moisture makes a comeback in the region resulting in a 50 percent chance of scattered showers and storms along with plenty of humidity, said 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Grant Gilmore.

Through the morning a few isolated showers linger along the coast, Glimore said, but a building chance of thunderstorms will develop and push inland during the afternoon.

Temperatures will be near normal throughout the day, despite it feeling more humid. Highs are forecast to climb to the upper 80s, Gilmore said, but it will feel closer to 100 degrees.

A few showers may pop up throughout the evening hours before dissipating and leaving a cloudy sky overnight. Lows will hover around the mid to upper 70s.

A similar setup is expected for Friday, Gilmore said, before rain chances dip slightly during the weekend.

  4. Pinellas County embarks on $19-million project to pull muck out of Lake Seminole

    Environment

    SEMINOLE — Environmental experts, always concerned about the water quality of Lake Seminole, are assessing how much Hurricane Irma may have stirred up the nearly 1 million cubic yards of muck that lay on the bottom.

    Despite the expenditure of more than $30 million over nearly two decades, improved water quality in Lake Seminole remains elusive. The muck that lines the bottom of the 684-acre freshwater lake keeps accumulating while the cost to remove it keeps rising. Having exhausted less drastic methods for restoring the lake, the county is about to embark on a six-year dredging project expected to cost $18.6 million. DOUGLAS R. CLIFFORD  |  Times
