A cold front that brought some relief Thursday to the Tampa Bay region’s stifling humidity is lifting back to the north, bringing a return to moist air and rain chances heading into the weekend.
Much of the area should stay dry through lunchtime, but as the front shifts to the north, rain chances will increase — especially inland — News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.
Highs will again reach 90, with a 30 percent chance of storms.
By Saturday, the extra moisture will produce a 60 percent chance of mainly afternoon storms. By Sunday, those rain chances will be more widespread, meaning a better chance of rain throughout the day.
