TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today we dried out as a cold front moved through the area. Under occasionally cloudy skies we saw temperatures hover in the 60s. The wind will fade a bit overnight, but the clouds will be more persistent.

We wake up in the chilly 40s and low 50s, but will warm nicely into the mid to upper 70s during the afternoon despite cloudier skies.

Wednesday won’t be quite as cool during the morning, we wake up in the mid to low 60s under mostly cloudy skies. Expect very windy conditions, with sustained winds out of the south around 20 mph and gusts closer to 30 mph. Afternoon temperatures will be mild, in the mid to upper 70s.

A cold front will move through Wednesday night into early Thursday morning, bringing a line of showers and storms and a cool down to follow.

A line of storms pushes south with the front Wednesday evening and continues into early Thursday morning. Even cooler air follows this front.

Friday starts in the 40s, and highs only reach the low 60s despite plenty of sunshine.

Gasparilla Saturday starts out quite chilly in the low-mid 40s, but there will be a nice warm-up. We should be in the mid-upper 60s during the parade. That’s slightly below average, but not uncomfortable if you’re in the sunshine.
