Wave Watch: Partly cloudy and breezy with a low chance for showers this weekend


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Marine conditions can change quickly across the Tampa Bay area. So 8 On Your Side’s meteorologist Amanda Holly is tracking your Wave Watch for Tampa Bay, Coastal Pinellas, Suncoast and the Nature Coast.

The Weekend: A cold front is stalled out just south of the Tampa Bay area. This is leaving lingering clouds but cooler and drier air in place. There is a low chanced for a few showers Saturday as a secondary push of cooler air moves in Saturday. This will leave winds coming in out of the north at 5-15 knots.
