Forecast: High temperatures, scattered showers all weekend

Hot temperatures and afternoon showers are ahead in this weekend's weather forecast.

Thanks to an offshore wind, rain will pop up throughout the weekend and temperatures will be seasonably high.

"We're already seeing some scattered showers and thunderstorms this morning," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Friday's rain chance was 40 percent, and temperatures were expected to rise to about 92 degrees. Inland areas, from Polk County to Orlando, will be even hotter and could reach the mid 90s. Coastal regions, in turn, will tend to be cooler, Marquez said.

"It's a similar setup for this weekend," Marquez said.

Saturday's rain chance will be 30 percent, while Sunday's will be slightly less. Late-night or early-morning showers could also move onto the beaches and travel inland by midday, Marquez said.

Overnight lows will only dip into the high 70s, and temperatures should range between the high 80s and low 90s all weekend.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
