The weather, currently.
Those showers turned up yesterday after all, and they look set to continue today. Tuesday morning will be a cool and cloudy 11°C with a very high chance of rain, and possibly a late morning thunderstorm. Light winds will tend southerly at 15 to 20km/h in the middle of the day, after which we will reach our high of 17°C. Showers are possible on Wednesday too, but things look drier for later in the week.

What you need to know, currently.
“Hurricane Ian is rapidly intensifying as it barrels towards western Cuba, then later, Florida, just north of Tampa Bay. Cuba is expecting life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds Monday night.
The storm may slow slightly as it tracks through the Gulf of Mexico — however this is not necessarily good news — as a slower storm has the potential to make flooding worse on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Major hurricanes hitting the Tampa Bay region directly, are fairly rare. In fact, only five major hurricanes have tracked within 50 miles of the area since 1851.”
