The Rain Ends for Most; A Warm Start to March

A line of scattered showers will continue to expand in parts of south Florida over the course of the weekend. Through Sunday, isolated rain, breezy conditions and cloudy skies will be mainly over the southeast Atlantic coast. Rain chances in West Palm Beach 40%-50%, Miami 30%-40%, Naples 20%-30%, Port St. Lucie 50%-60%. Afternoon highs in south Florida will remain near average from the mid 70's to 80's.

Along the I-4 corridor rain chances diminish, and conditions will be partly sunny and warm. Tampa's highs will be in the mid 70's to 80's with only a 20%-30% chance of scattered rain through the weekend. In Orlando, afternoon highs will reach the upper 70's with a 40% chance of showers.

In north-central Florida, from Jacksonville to Gainesville, temperatures will gradually warm from the 60's to the 70's. Skies will be partly sunny with lessening chances of rain in areas inland along I-75. For areas in and around the First coast, developing showers off the north Atlantic coast will bring increasing chances of showers from 40%-60% on Saturday night.

From Pensacola to Tallahassee temperatures climb toward the mid to upper 70's with only a 20% chance of showers through Monday.

Long term outlook
A gradual warm up will continue into next week, as well as diminishing chances of rain. High temperatures across the state are  forecast to be above average for many, along with clear conditions and mild overnight lows.
