Weather: Weekend forecast takes a break from the rain

We'll see a brief respite from the week's rainy weather in the weekend forecast.

Friday morning dawned in the refreshing mid 70s, and some northern areas even dipped into the low 60s, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said. What's more, the rain chance Friday will only be about 20 percent or less.

"We'll get a chance to dry out after all the rain we've had the last few days," she said.

The rain chance will increase throughout the weekend, but will still be lower than it was for much of the week, when heavy showers and thunderstorms caused flooding.

Saturday's rain chance will be about 30 percent and showers and thunderstorms will be most prevalent in inland areas. Sunday's rain chance will be 40 percent throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Temperatures should hover in the low 90s all weekend, with overnight lows in the high 70s.
