St. Patrick's Day showers expected; weekend will be warmer

Grab your umbrella: Light showers were expected to dampen Tampa Bay on Wednesday morning and remain through the cloudy afternoon.

There was a 50 percent chance of rain Wednesday, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Luckily enough for St. Patrick's Day revelers, the showers should be over by nightfall as an area of low pressure moves away from Florida, she said.

Like Tuesday, temperatures Wednesday afternoon should be around the 60s.

Thursday's highs should also linger below 70 degrees, and rain chances are 20 percent.

The weather should perk up Friday. Another cool morning will give way to a sunny and dry afternoon in the low 70s, Marquez said.

Things will only get warmer over the weekend. Highs are in the mid to upper 70s, "which is finally back to normal," she said.
