TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) – A band of showers and thunderstorms will cross the Bay area Tuesday.

A widespread severe outbreak is not expected, however, a few of the storms will be capable of isolated damaging winds, frequent lightning, and locally heavy rainfall.

Heavy rain may produce localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas as well as the ponding of water on roadways.

Building surf will produce an elevated risk of dangerous and more frequent rip currents along area beaches.
