Weather: A beautiful, sunny weekend ahead

The moon floats over St. Petersburg early Friday morning, as seen looking southwest from the corner of Poplar Street and 16th Avenue NE.

A cooler Friday will mark the start of a beautiful weekend across Tampa Bay.

"It's about 10 to 15 degrees cooler right now than it was this time yesterday morning," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said just after 6 a.m.

The morning was in the mid-60s and clear, allowing the moon to peak out before sunrise. The only down side looks to be strong winds throughout the day.

Temperatures should stay lower today than what we've seen throughout this week. A cold front that moved through Thursday pushed out damp air and thunderstorms, leaving sunshine and dry air in its place.

Saturday and Sunday should be much the same, with highs in the mid-to-high 80s and overnight lows in the 60s. No rain is predicted for the weekend, and low humidity should make for particularly nice conditions.

"It'll be really pleasant and comfortable for this time of year," Marquez said.

That trend should continue through Monday, and a chance of rain won't return until the middle of next week.
