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.

  1. Looking Back: Have you ever heard of Goose Pond?

    News

    I've lived in St. Petersburg most of my life. After a brief spell in North Carolina, my family moved back to St. Petersburg for good in 1978. And in all that time I've never heard the area around Central Plaza referred to as "Goose Pond."

    1952: Factors which made the Central Plaza development logical can be discerned in this photo, by those who know the realty situaiton here. Low grade and a 55-acre school site in storage kept the 90-acre Goose Pond (upper center) almost bare until now.
