TAMPA — There will likely be no chance of rain and smooth waters for the Buccaneers Super Bowl Championship boat parade set for Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The waters of the bay will have waves less than a foot at 1 p.m., said Meteorologist Austen Flannery, which is when the parade will begin on the Hillsborough River.

There won’t be a need to cover up your Bucs jerseys with jackets and sweaters, either. Flannery said Tampa should be warm with temperatures at or just below 80 degrees. The forecast also calls for a slight breeze by the time the parade kicks off in the early afternoon.

“Overall, it is far from a terrible day for a boat parade,” said Flannery.

The only slight hiccup to an otherwise perfect day could be sea fog, Flannery said. Tampa Bay is expected to have some in the morning Wednesday, though it’s expected to dissipate by the early afternoon.

It was still unknown Tuesday afternoon where the parade is set to begin and end. The City of Tampa is expected to release more details about the parade on Tuesday night.
