Forecast: Sunshine returns to Tampa Bay in time for weekend

Now that Tampa Bay is clear of any tropical development threat, weather should return to seasonal norms Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

The area of low pressure that brought Thursday's storms is still making its way up the east coast as it readies to turn back to the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center said it now has a less than a 10 percent chance of further development over the next five days.

Some showers will linger through the morning as it heads out, but sunshine is set to return by the afternoon, bringing the high temperature to a seasonal norm of 85. Any chance for afternoon rain remains small.

Saturday will also see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the middle and upper 80s. Sunday has a greater chance for some afternoon showers as a cold front front moves in. Temperatures should remain around normal into next week as an easterly flow supports the development of some afternoon showers and storms coming from the east coast.
