Arrgh! There be rain in our forecast for Gasparilla

Saturday's grim forecast for dampened pirate festivities is still just that, forecasters said.

The chance of rain the day of Tampa's Gasparilla parade has crept to 70 percent, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

It's still too early to tell whether the rain will be over in time for the parade, which starts at 2 p.m., she said. Showers should be over by Saturday night, and a cold front will move through the area late in the day, she said.

Until then, soak up the sunshine for the next three days — the afternoons will only get warmer, she said.

"Every day is pretty much perfect," she said. "Except Saturday."

Tampa Bay residents Wednesday morning woke up to temperatures between the upper 40s and low 50s. Areas north and east dropped into the upper 30s, she said.

Wednesday afternoon should have lots of sunshine, with temperatures in the upper 60s, she said.

It will also be less windy than Tuesday.

"If you liked yesterday, you'll like today," she said.
