Weather: A partly sunny, warm weekend ahead

We'll manage to squeeze in a weekend of pleasant weather before thunderstorms return next week.

Friday should be warm and sunny, with highs nearly reaching the 80s in most spots, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said. A few clouds are possible in the afternoon but rain chance is very low. Overnight lows will only dip into the mid-60s.

Saturday morning could bring fog, but the rain chance will stay low while temperatures remain high. A southerly wind developing throughout the day will bring a slight chance of afternoon showers, which will increase to about 20 percent Sunday.

Temperatures will be slightly lower that day too, with highs in the mid-70s, but Marquez said to expect some sunshine as well. A cold front moving toward north Florida could bring thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday, so enjoy it while it lasts.

"For most of us, it will be a partly sunny, nice weekend," Monday said.
