No more Emily, so heat, humidity and rain forecast for Tampa Bay this weekend

The good news: Tropical Storm Emily is gone. For now, at least.

The bad news: Tampa Bay can expect more of the same hot, humid weather with a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

The heat index this weekend will range from 100 to 105 degrees, she said.

That's the result of high temperatures in the low- to mid-90s coupled with high humidity, she said.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Emily will not affect the forecast in the Tampa Bay area even if the system regains its strength, Marquez said. On Thursday, meteorologists said Emily could pull in drier weather to Tampa Bay if it passed along Florida's east coast.

Now forecasters predict a 50 percent chance of rain on Saturday and a 40 percent chance on Sunday. Marquez said the showers and thunderstorms would mostly come in the afternoons and evenings.
