TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was lovely – perfect for enjoying our beaches or taking a stroll to enjoy the sunshine. We started out in the cool mid to upper 60s with patchy fog.  The afternoon was warm, in the low 80s, under partly cloudy skies.

Tonight is mild and quiet, with temperatures turning cool slowly. Expect to be down to 71 by midnight and to wake up to patchy fog and temperatures in the upper 60s. We will warm up quickly on Saturday, spending most of the day in the 70s, but topping out in the low 80s.

Highs stay in the low 80s Saturday ahead of a weak cold front that arrives Sunday.  Saturday we have a 30% chance for late afternoon and evening spotty showers over our inland counties, but the coast will stay dry. 

Sunday, a weakening cold front moves through, bringing a round of showers through our area. The best chance for showers is during the afternoon on Sunday.  We won’t see much of a cool down behind the showers, but we will enjoy lower humidity for a few days.

Those showers are ahead of a front that will lower our humidity on Monday and Tuesday. The coolest temperatures will be on Tuesday morning, when we wake up in the low 60s. The humidity, and the low 80s are back by the end of the week. All week long the temperatures will be in the upper 70s and low 80s for the afternoon. 

The next weak front is expected to arrive Thursday with a few showers. This front also does not look to bring much cooler air.
