TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was cloudy and mild, but tonight the rain will start. We topped out in the comfortable 70s, and will cool slowly down into the 60s overnight. Expect widespread, light rain to spread across our area tonight into Wednesday morning. Rainfall accumulations will not amount to much, but it will be inconvenient , especially Wednesday morning.

The showers continue overnight and into tomorrow morning, and it should be drier by tomorrow afternoon. It stays warm in the upper 70s.

We can be thankful for a comfortable Thanksgiving Day forecast. Temperatures climb to near 80 degrees with just a 20% rain chance. I’m sure many relatives in town from other parts of the country will enjoy the warm weather!

It stays warm on Saturday before a cold front passes on Sunday, and there will be a 40% rain chance with the front Sunday. Temperatures will be slightly cooler behind the front.
