TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today started out foggy, but cleared and warmed up nicely. Afternoon temperatures were mainly in the upper 70s, with some low 80s.

Tonight will be mild and clear, slowly cooling into the mid 60s. Fog will build after midnight, initially along the coast and spreading inland. The visibilities will be at the lowest between 7-8:30 a.m.

Once the fog dissipates, it will warm up quickly. Afternoon highs reach the upper 70s and low degrees on Groundhog Day.

A cold front pushes south on Friday. We should still have fog Friday morning before the front brings a round of showers and even a few thunderstorms for Friday afternoon and evening. The rain chance increases to 60%.

The front brings slightly cooler air but not a blast of cold air. Highs will be in the mid 70s Friday, and we drop into the low-mid 50s Friday night into Saturday morning. That’s close to average for early February.

The rain ends before sunrise on Saturday, and it will be breezy all day with highs in the mid 70s. We get a little warmer Sunday as the front drifts back to the north. The front helps create a few spotty showers, but it will not be a wash out on Sunday.

We return to 80 degrees by the middle of next week.
