Intense weather conditions are a part of life for Tampa Bay residents during summer because, though the climate is usually hot and humid, thunderstorms frequent the area throughout this season. Afternoon thunderstorms are usually caused by the interaction of the Gulf and Atlantic sea breezes; when these two elements converge, it creates a potentially destructive weather system that can bring strong winds and heavy rains, followed by lightning and thunders – hence called “thunderstorm.”
Now that we are in the middle of summer, thunderstorm warnings have been reported across the state of Florida. However, there will be occasions when a storm warning is lifted, such as this recent baynews9.com report:
A severe thunderstorm warning issued for northeast Hillsborough and west Polk County has been canceled.
But storms are still active around the Bay area.
A real flood advisory has been issued for Citrus County until 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Arthur is off the Florida east coast drifting to the north.
“We will have a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms today,” Marquez said. “We have drier air aloft, which limited some of the storms yesterday and again today.”
Arthur is expected to remain just offshore of Florida’s east coast through Wednesday, passing east of northeast Florida by Wednesday night.
Rain chances are expected to remain high in the Bay area into the Fourth of July weekend.
Notwithstanding the cancellation of the warning, the report still indicates the possibility of heavy rains to occur in the region.
