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.

    TALLAHASSEE — A former Tampa police officer convicted in 1980 of murdering a security guard will not be released from prison after a parole hearing that Attorney General Pam Bondi said could have put her at risk.

    Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi arrives for an injunction hearing at the Hillsborough County Courthouse, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Tampa, regarding William Norman Wilkes, the man she alleges has been stalking her. On Wednesday, the Florida Commission on Offender Review is set to consider whether to let Charles Norman, a former Tampa police officer convicted of murder, will seek his possible release. Bondi says Norman has sent her threats. "He is a menace to society and needs to remain behind bars," Bondi said.   [Loren Elliott | Tampa Bay Times]
