Why Tampa Bay Temps Have Never Hit 100 And Probably Never Will. OH yea it’s HOT. Hotter than a $2 Pistol! The “feels like” temperature can be at 100, but the actual temperature has never, ever, ever been above 99 degrees? Can that be right? Yep. They’ve been keeping records of Tampa Bay Temps since 1890 and not one 100 degree day. Here’s why…

  • 1. Sea Breeze

    It picks up every afternoon throughout the summer.

  • 2. It's A Water Thing

    The city is surrounded by it, and it keeps temps from going all crazy

  • 3. Daily Thunderstorms

    You know the “summer weather pattern” calls for a chance of rain every afternoon at about 3:17 right? Called the cooling effect.
