TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The morning was miserable, with light showers and cold temperatures, but the skies cleared out after lunch and the sun finally warmed us into the mid to upper 60s.

Temperatures turn chilly once again quickly this evening, under clear skies. Temperatures will dive down through the 60s and 50s, getting into the chilly upper 40s and low 50s on Thursday.

Thursday’s forecast wins the “most improved” award as we warm into the low 70s by the lunch hour. Highs reach the upper 70s with lots of sunshine through the day.

St. Patrick’s Day is even warmer with highs in the low 80s. It may be a little breezy, but otherwise should be quite lucky for all your plans.

The next cold front arrives Saturday with an 80% chance of showers and storms. Try to make some indoor plans. The front stalls just to our south, so there’s still a few lingering showers Sunday. It will be a bit cooler on Sunday.

Much needed rain chances over the weekend for Tampa Bay

We are already tracking another front that arrives Tuesday with another round of showers and storms.
