A wet start for the weekend, then cooler temps

TAMPA — Friday morning began with scattered showers around the bay area, ushering in a cooler, pleasant weekend.

A cold front is expected to roll in after the rain, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez, bringing weekend temperatures in the 70s.

Marquez said the day will stay sunny and a little windy when the showers wrap up, with gusts of about 15 to 20 mph.

Friday night will be cooler than most nights this week, probably in the 50s. Saturday will begin in the upper 50s to low 60s, Marquez said.

There's a slight chance of rain on Sunday for the southern part of Tampa Bay. But for the most part, this weekend's weather will be mild.
