Scattered showers are possible for the Wednesday morning commute, while a few thunderstorms can’t be ruled out on Wednesday afternoon and evening. This is a result of a surge of energy arriving from a trough that dips through the Suncoast region. Winds will increase on Gulf waters at about 20 knots allowing for hazardous boating conditions along with the potential for rip currents on beach waters.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Wednesday as a result of thicker cloud cover and periods of showers throughout the day.
