According to the FAA flight delay page, there's a ground delay program for arriving traffic due to the thunderstorms (as of 11:55 EST). You could check individual flights on either airline sites or one of the flight-trackers to see some individual flight impacts.

Air Canada 902 (YYZ-TPA) diverted to FLL. Landed there at 1505, and waiting to continue to TPA. Latest departure time from FLL is 1630, but it's been pushed back a few times. The sky here is getting a little bit lighter now, just in time for sundown......LOL

Airport spokesperson says 25 flights were diverted.
NWS reported 7.73 inches of rain for the day at TPA as of 4pm Eastern.
That's the fourth highest one day total. 13 inches where I live today.
There have been some evacuations because of flooding, and a good section of a store roof collapsed .
We have a break in the rain this evening, but more showers and thunderstorms are expected tonight as a cold front nears. While they won't train (one storm following another) rain with them is expected to be heavy.
Weather should improve Saturday afternoon...sunny and cool (62 degrees)
Sunday. But no shoveling required!
