Sun streams down on the plaza Friday morning outside the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater.

We're on our way to another warm weekend.

Temperatures will near record highs Friday and drop Saturday night for a more seasonable Sunday.

Friday's highs, in the low 80's, could creep toward the record high of 85 degrees set in 1947, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Those warm temperatures will linger through Saturday, but as a cold front moves in Saturday night, they'll drop. Sunday's high will only reach the low-to-mid 70's across the Tampa Bay area and will likely be windy, Marquez said.

Showers are possible Friday and Sunday, but Saturday should be sunny, according to the Bay News 9 Weather Center. Patchy fog could also plague the area Friday night.
