Get ready for another weekend of hot temperatures and afternoon thunderstorms.

Friday will top out at 89 degrees, Saturday's high will be 90 and Sunday is expected to reach 89 degrees. Nighttime won't offer much respite, as lows will only dip into the high 70s.

The rain chance will remain high all weekend as well, at 50 percent Friday and Sunday and 40 percent Saturday. Unlike much of the past week, those thunderstorms won't roll in during the morning hours.

"Our timing will start shifting to the afternoon and evening," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Diane Kacmarik said. "Our mornings will be drier over the weekend."

Kacmarik said those storms could produce heavy rain, and are expected to move fairly slowly. By next week, we'll return to a pattern of morning storms with afternoon showers further inland.

    TAMPA — There was a time, not long ago, when Wayne Capaz would go for a stroll at night and Christina Rodriguez would shop whenever she wanted. Michael Fuller would go to his night job as a line cook, not too worried about his wife at home.
