Weekend weather forecast to be a little warmer than normal

There was a little fog and an increased chance of rain in Friday's forecast for the weekend, but for the most part the weather was expected to be warm and pleasant.

"A cold front in the Panhandle will stall across the state north of Tampa Bay, which keeps us on the warm side," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

High temperatures were expected to reach into the upper 80s through Sunday, a few degrees warmer than normal, Marquez said. Low temperatures were forecast to be in the 60s inland and lower 70s along the coast, where a sea breeze would bring up temperatures.

That cold front was also expected to bring a higher chance of rain — 20 percent on Saturday and 30 percent on Sunday. The most likely result was expected to be patchy late night and early morning fog.
