Kent Richard catches a fish off of a dock at Demens Landing Park, St. Petersburg, Friday, with his sons Sam, 13, and Jonah, 11. The group had been fishing for several hours, but decided to call it quits after a light rain began. "We just wanted to get out of the house for a few hours," said Kent Richard who was using live shrimp for bait.

Rain could dampen your weekend celebrations, but temperatures will still hover above normal.

Bay News 9's Diane Kacmarik predicted a 20 percent chance of rain Saturday ahead of a cold front. That system will bring heavy showers and a possibility of thunderstorms to Tampa Bay late Saturday and early Sunday.

"Especially north of Tampa will be a better chance of storms," Kacmarik said.

Temperatures will top out near 75 degrees Friday and could jump into the 80s Saturday, well above the normal temperature of 70 degrees.

Sunday will also reach the mid 70s, with overnight lows in the high 50s after the cold front moves through the region.
