As expected, today is really going to be the day we find out the path of what is likely to become Hurricane Idalia. Not much has changed since yesterday’s update. The storm is expected to make landfall in Florida Tuesday into Wednesday. Initially forecasters seemed to think this would only be a tropical storm. But now Idalia looks like it will become at least a category 1 hurricane before it gets to Florida.

As for today, it was all about the heat again. Temperatures in the Tampa area reached the mid 90s again. We are still a couple days away from any impact of what will likely become Hurricane Idalia. See the 5pm update below from ABC Action News.
