Weather: The weekend will be downright HOT

Grab those beach umbrellas and slather on the sunscreen, because the weather will really heat up this weekend across Tampa Bay.

After a foggy morning that limited visibility to a quarter mile in northern counties, the work week will end on a sunny note. Temperatures have been steadily climbing since Monday and will top out around 82 degrees today.

Most spots will climb even higher Saturday, into the mid 80s, and Sunday will be the weekend's warmest day with highs in the upper 80s.

"Inland areas will be the hottest spots," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Overnight lows will only dip into the high 70s, and partly cloudy skies won't do much to cool us down.

The rain chance this weekend is low, Marquez said, although Sunday carries about a 10 percent chance of isolated showers. That will come ahead of a week of increasing rain chances, because nothing good can last forever.
