TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A cold front has stalled just to the south of the Tampa Bay area. A few lingering showers are possible south of I-4.
Less humid air will try to follow the front, so it may feel more comfortable for areas north of I-4. Highs will be close to the seasonal average of 84 degrees.
It cools quickly this evening, and overnight lows will be in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. If Tampa International Airport drops to the upper 60s, it will be the first time since May 17 we’ve had a temperature below 70 degrees at that location.
The cooler air does not last long, the front lifts back to the north Friday, so rain chances increase to 30%. Highs will be in the low 80s.
Potential Tropical Cyclone 16 has formed in the Gulf of Mexico and will strengthen to Tropical Storm Nestor as it heads northeast toward the Florida Panhandle by Saturday.
