Alex Killorn #17 of the Tampa Bay Lightning celebrates while driving a jetski at the Tampa Bay Lightning Victory Rally & Boat Parade on the Hillsborough river on September 30, 2020 in Tampa, Florida.

If you are off to Tampa to celebrate another Stanley Cup win with the Tampa Bay Lightning, be sure to have the Q105 app on your phone today so you can check the radar because although we’ll get off to a sunny start today, it is July in Florida and you know what that means.

Tampa Bay Lightning victory parade preview

Forecasters think the weather might get a little dicey as early as 2pm. The parade is set to start at 11 with the after parade celebration happening at 2 at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in Tampa. Lightning players are scheduled to speak and there will be live music. But Mother Nature could have the final say on that.

Greg Dee from ABC Action News expects no rain until at least 1pm. But after that, definitely keep an eye on the sky and have our app loaded up to check the radar. Greg says some storms could be severe. Temperatures are expected to be about 86 for the parade kick off at 11 and about 90 by 2pm for the Julian B. Lane post-parade festivities. Keep your fingers crossed and hopefully we’ll get the fun in before the weather arrives!

Lightning Stanley Selfies

No doubt camera phones will be put to use during the parade today. The Bolts were selfie’ing away on the ice at Amalie Arena shortly after the horn sounded.
