TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – We began the day at 42° and only warmed into the mid to low 60s despite sunny skies and lighter winds. We are in for a quick cool down tonight- expect temperatures to sink down into the chilly mid 40s early Wednesday morning.

Wednesday starts out cold, but finally warms back up into the mid to low 70s for the afternoon hours. Expect sunny skies and light winds out of the east/southwest between 5-10 mph.

It won’t be quite as cold Thursday morning, temperatures will be down into the mid 50s. Thursday will be the nicest day this week, we warm up into the upper 70s under partly cloudy skies.

The end of the week brings a complex system into Florida. The first cold front stalls just to our north Friday and brings a few showers late in the day. During the weekend, areas of low pressure develop along the front and keep our weather pattern unsettled into early Sunday. Exact timing of the rain through the weekend remains uncertain right now.

Once the system finally pushes south and east on Sunday, it will be cooler again. Highs return to the mid 60s to start next week. The overnight temperatures won’t be quite as chilly, starting in the low 50s. We don’t make it back into the 70s by the middle of next week.
