Weather: A hot, sticky weekend ahead

Crank up the A.C. — it's going to be a hot one.

Temperatures will reach the low-to-mid 90s for most of Tampa Bay this weekend, an unseasonably high reading for this time of year.

And it gets worse.

"The heat index, what it feels like, will be around 100 for some of us in the afternoons," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

One notable exception will be the beaches, which will stay slightly cooler thanks to a sea breeze. Mornings will stay warm, in the upper 70s in most areas, and humidity will be high, Marquez said.

The same sea breeze that cools the beaches will also bring in afternoon thunderstorms, some of which could carry strong showers, Marquez said. An area of high pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will also bring light winds and increased humidity.

Over the weekend, an area of low pressure developing in the Atlantic is expected to drift south, and will be hovering east of Florida by next week.
