No rain for Gasparilla, just pirates and sunshine

TAMPA — Pirates parading Saturday for Gasparilla will have a sunny day with no chance of rain.

"It looks nice. It looks mostly sunny tomorrow," said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

Before the 11:30 a.m. invasion, temperatures will still be in the upper 50s. By the time beads start flying and the afternoon parade gets going, it'll warm up to the upper 60s.

If you spend the day on a boat expect winds at 5 to 10 knots.

Saturday night should cool back down to the 50s and 60s. Sunday will start off in the mid 40s or low 50s before a cloudy afternoon reaches the 60s or low 70s.
