TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Time to break out the winter coats. Despite a sunny sky all day, temperatures will only climb into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees today. Plus, a north breeze will make it feel even colder.
It cools down quickly after sunset with overnight lows in the upper 20 to mid 30s. FREEZE WARNING is in effect tonight for northern counties (Citrus/Hernando) and a FREEZE WATCH has been issued for most of the Tampa Bay area AWAY from the coast. There’s a WIND CHILL ADVISORY out for everybody early Wednesday. With a breezy north wind, it will FEEL subfreezing early Wednesday even in places where the actual air temperature stays above freezing.
Be sure to bring the pets inside and take care of any sensitive plants!
Looks like another bright, breezy and chilly day tomorrow with highs near 60. It finally warms back into the low 70s Thursday as a front approaches. Friday will have a 30% rain chance with highs in the mid 70s.
The front is expected to pass early Saturday. At this point, most of the rain will be over before the Gasparilla Parade in Tampa, but stay tuned. It will be slightly cooler behind that front with highs near 70 Saturday and mid 60s Sunday.
