@bn9weather: Juli Marquez: Friday’s forecast and a detailed look at the river flooding here:

ST. PETERSBURG — 

Partly sunny skies with scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and this evening.

Some of the thunderstorms will produce locally heavy rain today. Because the ground is saturated from Irma, heavy rain could lead to localized flooding in some locations.

Many area rivers continue in moderate to major flood stages. Most have crested or are near crest or will crest during the next couple of days. However, any additional heavy rainfall in those areas will worsen the river flooding.

High temperatures will be in the low 90s.

Scattered storms this evening then partly cloudy skies tonight.

Lows will be in the mid to upper 70s. 

This weekend features lower rain chances.

There will be scattered showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. The rain chance is 30 percent to 40 percent across the area.

Sunday features a 20 percent chance of storms.

Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s this weekend. Morning lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

River Flood Warnings:

The Flood Warning was cancelled for the Withlacoochee River At Holder.

TROPICS:

Tropical Storm Jose is in the Atlantic Ocean hundreds of miles east of the Bahamas.  It’s looking better organized this morning and will probably restrengthen into a hurricane today.

It’s not a threat to Florida but areas from North Carolina to New England will need to watch it next week.

Tropical Depression 14 is in the far Eastern Atlantic Ocean. It is moving west and will likely become a tropical storm today or tonight. The next name is Lee.

It will not be near any land through Wednesday but we’ll keep an eye on it.
