TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was quite chilly- starting in the upper 40s and low 50s and only warming into the upper 60s and low 70s. The calmer winds and clear skies will make for a more rapid cooldown this evening, diving down through the 60s and back into the mid to low 50s.

Wednesday begins on a chilly note with temperatures in the 40s and 50s in most spots. Despite abundant sunshine, temperatures will only slowly warm up. We’ll stay well below average with highs mostly in the upper 70s, a few 80° high temperatures are possible. Winds will be lighter and it will stay dry.

We’re in store for another chilly night with temperatures dropping back into the low-60s in our downtown spots, upper 50s and mid 50s everywhere else.

Thursday warms a bit more robustly, spending a few hours in the low 80s during the afternoon. Expect a few clouds to build during the day on Thursday.

While temperatures stay below average through Friday, it will feel milder with slighter higher humidity. A weak cold front will move through again Friday night with a few showers, and it will keep the weekend feeling great and fall-like.

Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 and lows will be in the 60s. Temperatures do turn warmer again next week.
