TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The first thing you’ll notice when you walk outside today is the much warmer air. It is still cool, but it’s closer to average for late January.
Morning low clouds will give way to partly cloudy skies this afternoon. Temperatures climb into the low 70s. There is a 10% chance of a few showers, especially east of I-75.
It will be even warmer tomorrow with highs in the mid 70s. A cold front arrives late Friday with a 20% chance of rain. The rain ends in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday.
Saturday will only be slightly cooler with highs in the upper 60s with a light cool breeze. It should feel comfortable for all the pirates invading Tampa for the Gasparilla Parade that starts at 2pm.
Sunday’s highs will still be in the mid to upper 60s, and showers return Monday.
