The scene on a rainy morning Wednesday on the campus of University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

Heavy rains pounded coastal areas early Wednesday, causing traffic delays and minor flooding.

Scattered thundershowers with some heavy rains are expected through the day because of a stalled front northwest of the Tampa Bay area, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Forecasters expect about a 60 percent chance of rain throughout the area.

Temperatures are expected to climb in the mid to high 80s.

Rain chances for Thursday are listed at 50 percent.
