      Thursday will be mostly sunny in Tampa Bay area

      Wednesday, May 27 2015 3:21 PM EDT2015-05-27 19:21:57 GMT
      Fewer storms will develop this afternoon as drier air arrives in the Tampa Bay area. There's just a 20% chance of a late-day shower near the coast.
      A few isolated storms will develop this evening, but we won't see nearly as much rain as we saw Tuesday night. Overnight will be mostly clear and with drier air. It will also feel less muggy.

    Notes:
    Lawrence Frank is beginning his fifth full season as the Nets head coach, having been officially appointed on June 21, 2004, after being tabbed as the interim head coach on January 26, 2004. Prior to his initial head coaching position, Frank had spent three and a half seasons as an assistant coach for the Nets. Lawrence is currently the second-longest tenured coach in the Eastern Conference. Frank began his NBA coaching career in record-setting style, as he went 13-0 from January 27-February 24, which set a new NBA mark for the most consecutive wins by a head coach to begin a coaching career. The 13-game winning streak was also the longest winning streak of any coach in any of the four major professional sports to begin a career. During the streak, the Nets won six consecutive games on the road, which gave Frank the mark for the most wins by a head coach on the road at the outset of their coaching career. During the first full month of his coaching regime (February), Frank led the Nets to an 11-2 record, which earned him recognition as the NBA Eastern Conference `Coach of the Month.` The 11-2 mark also established a Nets franchise record for winning percentage in a month with an .846 mark. In 2004-05, the Nets recovered from a 3-12 start to make their fourth consecutive playoff appearance, notching the 8th seed on the final day of the regular season. The team finished the season winning 14 of their last 18 games, including an 8-2 mark during the month of April. The team`s season-ending performance earned Frank April `Coach of the Month` honors. During the 2005-06 season, the Nets tied a franchise record by winning 14 consecutive games in March and April (11 in March) which earned Frank NBA Eastern Conference ‘Coach of the Month’ honors for March. Frank became the franchise’s all-time leader in coaching victories (NBA) in 2006-07, compiling 157 career wins after finishing the season with a 41-41 record. Under Frank’s direction, the Nets closed the season with a 7-2 mark, earning Frank NBA Eastern Conference “Coach of the Month’ honors for April. A native of Teaneck, New Jersey, Frank spent three seasons as an assistant coach for the Vancouver Grizzlies under Brian Hill. Frank`s responsibilities with the Grizzlies included scouting upcoming opponents as well as practice and bench coaching duties. Prior to joining the Grizzlies, Frank served as an assistant coach at the University of Tennessee for three seasons under Head Coach Kevin O`Neill. Frank first worked with O`Neill as a staff assistant at Marquette in 1992 and during his tenure, helped lead the Marquette Warriors to two NCAA Tournament berths and a Sweet 16 appearance in 1994. Frank earned his B.S. in education from Indiana University in 1992, where he spent four seasons as a manager for the Hoosier basketball team led by Bob Knight. He also holds an M.S. in education administration from Marquette. Lawrence and his wife, Susan, have two daughters, Dillon Grace and Caitlin Elizabeth, and they reside in Bergen County, New Jersey.
