TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was a little more comfortable, we warmed into the mid 60s during the afternoon. Our skies have cleared out and our temperatures are cooling down quickly.

Tonight is turning chilly, temperatures are sinking down through the 50s and into the 40s overnight. We should get down into the mid 40s under mostly clear skies.

Chilly- but not freezing overnight for Tampa Bay.

Expect a lovely warm up under mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. It will feel great outside by the lunch hour tomorrow, with temperatures around 67. The temperatures are chilly to begin with, but warm nicely into the low 70s by the afternoon. Expect sunshine and comfortable afternoon temperatures.

The warming trend continues for the rest of the week with high temperatures up near 70 tomorrow, and in the upper 70s close to 80 by Friday.

The warm temperatures will stick around through the weekend but a weak cold front will approach, increasing rain chances.

The only point of concern over this week is a potential chance for showers late Saturday into early Sunday, which could interfere with New Years Eve celebrations and fireworks. Right now the chances for rai Saturday night build up to 50% after 8 p.m. We even wake up to a few showers leftover on Sunday morning before we dry out for the day.  There won’t be much of a cooldown behind the rain. 

A few showers linger on New Year’s Day but temperatures will remain near 80 degrees in the afternoon to start the new year.
