Blustery, drizzly Friday ahead for Tampa Bay

There's a saying that could apply today.

Something about April showers?

Friday through Sunday are expected to be full of scattered showers as a front moves over Tampa Bay on Friday night. The region has a 50 percent chance of rain, Saturday has a 50 percent chance and Sunday has a 40 percent chance, according to Bay News 9.

The front will keep Tampa Bay cloudy and breezy, but temperatures aren't expected to drop much, said Brian McClure, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

Temperatures are predicted to stay in the 80s throughout the weekend.

The front is expected to break apart over Tampa Bay on Sunday, and the region should start to dry out again.
