Weather forecast | Morning of Friday, July 10

More rain today, maybe gone tomorrow

If you wanted to go to the beach today, you might want to rent a movie instead.

The National Weather Service is predicting a 70 percent chance of rain for the Tampa Bay area today. Scattered thunderstorms are expected for most of the day, which might lead to street flooding in some areas. Winds will be up to 40 mph with frequent lightning strikes. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s.

Odds are the wet stuff will start falling around noon, so hope you brought your lunch to work today.

But the weather's looking brighter for the weekend, said Bay News Nine meteorologist Diane Kacmarik.

"On Saturday we'll start to see it be slightly dryer," she said. "Showers and storms will still be pretty prevalent, but chances are dropping down to 40 percent."
