Heavy storms to continue across bay area

TAMPA — Heavy storms that pummeled the bay area Thursday night are expected to continue through Friday.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said quarter-inch hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph were reported in parts of the bay area overnight, in addition to the couple inches of rain.

A lightning strike Thursday afternoon is believed to be the cause of a Tampa business fire.

Marquez said storms today are expected to be just as severe.

High temperatures are expected to be near 80 degrees along the coast and in the low 90s inland.
