ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — All the showers and storms will have a northward movement through tomorrow.
- More rounds of showers, storms Friday

Skies will be mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s through morning.
Tropical Storm Barry in the northern Gulf is moving away from us so it will not have any direct impact to our weather, other than rip currents. But it is close enough to keep lots of moisture in our atmosphere, which is why we continue to see high rain chances and lots of clouds. Barry will slowly drift northwest away from us up toward Louisiana.
As that happens we will eventually get back to a more typical forecast this weekend.
In the short term though, you can still expect more rounds of showers and storms moving through for Friday with mostly cloudy skies. That will again keep our highs below average in the mid to upper 80s. That will be the sixth straight day we have had below average temperatures.
This weekend is when we will finally get back to a more typical summer pattern. There will be more sunshine during the first half of the day Saturday with scattered storms Saturday afternoon-evening. Highs will get back to the low 90s.

Sunday will also have a sunny morning followed by scattered storms later in the day.

Next week looks like a very normal summer pattern of sunny mornings followed by scattered storms each afternoon to evening.
It will be hot and humid each day with highs in the low 90s.
Lows at night will be in the mid to upper 70s.
The coverage of storms will vary slightly from day to day but in general be around 40 percent each day.
