Briefs: Warm weekend expected to end Saturday night in Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay

Cold front to move through tonight

We're midway through another warm weekend.

Temperatures were near record highs Friday and expected to be in the low to mid 80s again today before a more seasonable Sunday.

Friday's highs, in the low 80s, crept toward the record high of 85 degrees set in 1947, said Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Those warm temperatures will linger through today, but as a cold front moves in tonight, they'll drop. Sunday's high will only reach the low-to-mid 70s and will likely be windy, Marquez said.

Showers are possible Sunday, but today should be sunny.

No one claims $16.6M Powerball winnings

The winner of a $16.6 million Powerball ticket purchased in Carrollwood will never earn the reward.

Florida Lottery Tampa district manager Mike Purcell said its owner didn't step up by the deadline of Friday at midnight.

The ticket was purchased at Carrollwood Market, located at 4550 W Village Drive back in May.

Eighty percent of the money now goes to Florida education funding and 20 percent to future Powerball promotions and prizes.

More names added to Jill Kelley privacy suit

Tampa socialite Jill Kelley has added a few new names to her lawsuit against the FBI and Defense Department on allegations they violated her privacy by leaking her name as the tipster who uncovered the affair between then-CIA director David Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell.

In an amended complaint filed Friday, Kelley added former CIA and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, outgoing FBI Deputy Director Sean Joyce and several others with the FBI.
