Weather system to bring rains late Saturday

Part of the weather system that brought severe weather and tornadoes to the midwest this week will move through the Tampa Bay area late Saturday night.

The system will bring a 60 percent chance of rain, though forecasters don't anticipate the system will pack any tornadoes or destructive winds.

"It's the same front, just what's left of it, without its punch," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik.

The rain could start sometime overnight Saturday. The rain should push out of the area sometime Sunday morning. Partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures will follow, with a high Sunday of about 65.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
