It’s going to be a beautiful day, with lots of sunshine around the Tampa Bay area, News Channel 8 meteorologists said.

“It’s looking gorgeous outside,” meteorologist Bryan Bennett said. “It will be warm and humid, but there’s only a very slight shower chance throughout Saturday.”

The afternoon high is expected to reach 87 degrees with high humidity. There will be a few high clouds, but rain chances are less than 30 percent Bennett said.

Water temperatures in the Gulf are about 80 degrees today. “It’s still comfortable for a swim, but it’s cooling off,” Bennett said.
