Weather: Predictably hot weekend ahead

Another weekend of predictable weather is ahead in Tampa Bay.

It will be hot. And humid. There will be scattered storms, and the overnight lows won't feel low at all.

In other words, it will feel like August in Florida.

"No big changes through the weekend," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Temperatures will reach the low 90s throughout the bay area, with overnight lows in the high 70s.

An area of high pressure will stay in place all weekend, bringing light winds and a few showers in the morning. In the afternoon, a sea breeze will bring scattered heavy storms throughout Tampa Bay and inland areas.

Friday's rain chance will be 40 percent, while Saturday and Sunday's chances will hover between 40 and 50 percent. A higher rain chance is predicted inland.
