A few stray showers may develop late at night, but most of the area will remain rain-free until Saturday.

Saturday night into Sunday morning showers will increase in coverage and intensity.  Some of the showers will become heavy. Most of this action happens between 3 a.m. and daybreak in Orlando.

As the day goes on Sunday the front sags farther south and the rain clears away.

By the time kickoff happens in Tampa at 6:30 p.m. the showers will have ended in Tampa, and the game looks to be mostly rain free.

The temp at the beginning of the game will be 68 degrees with a light breeze.
