A repeat of last week’s deluge might not be in the picture, but meteorologists at the National Weather Service say St. Petersburg residents should keep an eye on the forecast.
“We’re going to be trending wetter as the week goes on,” said meteorologist Robert Garcia.
Rain chances are in the 30 to 40 percent range for most of Tampa Bay at the start of the week, but they start to climb to 50 percent by Thursday and Friday, Garcia said.
Does that mean we’ll end up seeing as much rain as we did last week?
Garcia says it’s too soon to tell.
“We’ll have to see,” he said. “Keep an eye on the forecast.”
Temperatures are predicted to hover the in upper 80s and low 90s for highs throughout the week and between the upper 60s and low 70s for lows.
