Weather: Wet mornings and afternoons in weekend forecast

You shouldn't have expected anything else from Friday the 13th.

Thanks to a southwest wind, Tampa Bay will see early morning showers Friday instead of just the usual afternoon storms. But even a 50 percent chance of rain will leave room for sunshine, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

"It won't be a complete washout," Marquez said. "Certainly some areas are going to see sunshine in the morning."

Afternoon showers will give us a second dumping of rain today, and the same rainy pattern will continue into Saturday. Showers could carry over into the morning, and a sea breeze will bring in afternoon showers as well. Sunday will be a little drier, with a rain chance of 40 percent, and the morning should be fairly dry.

Temperatures will be in the upper 80s and low 90s, with overnight lows in the 70s. It will feel warm and humid, Marquez said.
