Tampa Bay forecast calls for a drier Sunday

The heavy rain that flooded some Tampa Bay area streets and canceled events is expected to move out of the area by this afternoon.

But even with the rain tapering, some events scheduled for today around the region were washed out. Hillsborough County's Fallen Heroes Memorial Ride was rescheduled for 8:30 a.m. Sunday. It will still start at McDonald Elementary School, 501 Pruett Road in Seffner. The annual Family Fun Day Festival planned for Saturday at the James B. Sanderlin Service Center in St. Petersburg was canceled.

There will be areas of light to moderate rain this morning but Sunday should be dry and pleasant, Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik said Friday night.

A flood watch is in effect until 4 p.m. today in Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee and Sarasota counties. Temperatures in the mid 70s are expected today.

"By Saturday afternoon, it should start drying out and cooling down a little bit," Kacmarik said.

Sunday will bring partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.

"We might still see a few clouds lingering around," Kacmarik said.

  2. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big


    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
