It’s Gasparilla season in Tampa and the weather this time of year can go from frigid to tropical humid downpour in the same day. The Tampa weather gurus are pretty locked in for the weather forecasts for both the Children’s Gasparilla Parade tomorrow and the one for the big kids next weekend.
Children’s Gasparilla Forecast
Greg Dee from ABC Action News says unfortunately there’s potential for rain Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. So definitely bring an umbrella. The good news is temperatures should be comfortable. Greg thinks along Bayshore it’ll be about 73 degrees when the parade begins. It’ll drop down to the mix 60s Saturday night. Sunday we could see a few afternoon showers, but there will be periods of sun too with temps around 79.
Adult Gasparilla Forecast
So how will the weather be for the big kids? The good news is it looks like the chance of any precipitation is small. Weather.com right now says there’s only a 6% likelihood of any rain on Saturday, January 28. It’ll be on the cool side, but chances are the pirates will have the necessary adult beverages nearby so they won’t even notice. Looks like lots of sun with temps in the 60s Saturday and 70s on Sunday.
