Weather: warmer temps and sunshine in store this weekend

A bit of good news: it's Friday, and sunshine and warm weather are finally on tap for the weekend.

Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez predicts we'll have "nice weather for the Florida Strawberry Festival and all the other events going on this weekend."

Temperatures dipped into the 40s and 50s across Tampa Bay early Friday, but the day should be sunny and will warm to nearly 70 degrees by afternoon, Marquez said.

Friday night will be cool, but Saturday morning will be slightly warmer with temperatures in the mid-50s. Saturday's high will be in the mid-70s, and partly-cloudy skies are expected.

Sunday will top out near 80 in some eastern areas, Marquez said, and will also be partly cloudy. Lows that day will only dip into the 60s.
