Weekend weather to feature cool mornings, pleasant afternoons

Tampa Bay area residents can look forward to a pleasant weekend featuring cool mornings and warm, sunny afternoons.

Friday morning saw Tampa drop to 59 degrees while Pinellas County saw temperatures in the low 60s, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. Northern regions, including Brooksville, saw a dip into the low 50s.

That should be the trend through Sunday, with afternoon highs getting into the upper 70s and low 80s, Marquez said. Skies will be mostly sunny.

"This time of year, I always tell people to dress in layers," Marquez said. "Because while you might want to warm up in the morning, by the afternoon you'll want to cool down."

The cold front with gradually disappear as the new week begins. Highs will return to the mid 80s again later next week, including on Halloween.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
