Admiral Farragut Academy ninth-grader Ian Schlifstein, 14, of Clearwater and seventh-graders Richard Dunleavy, 13, of Seminole and Zachary Fine, 13, of St. Petersburg work in the rain Friday as they help restock the school’s wetland marsh nursery as part of the school’s Bay Grasses in Classes program at the school.

The weekend should start out cloudy and rainy before a cold front drops down into the Tampa Bay area, bringing drier weather, meteorologists said.

The cold front was expected to swing through late Friday or early Saturday and the showers are forecast to end Saturday during the day.

Until then, we can expect to see showers, some of which could be heavy.

Friday's high was expected to be in the high 70s. Saturday and Sunday should be about the same, according to Bay News 9.

Sunday had the lowest chance of rain at 10 percent.

But the dry weather won't last.

"We're looking for that moisture to come back Sunday night into Monday," said National Weather Service meteorologist Ernie Jillson.

The forecast for Halloween calls for a 50 percent chance of rain.
