TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Today was beautiful once the fog dissipated- we spent most of the day in the mild 70s, but warmed into the mid 80s during the afternoon.

This evening will be lovely and mild, with temperatures sinking down through the 70s. We will cool into the mid to low 60s and widespread areas of fog will develop after midnight. Expect the potential for reduced visibilities through 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning.

Friday will be lovely and mild, spending most of the day in the 70s with plenty of sunshine. Friday night will be fog prone again.

No rain is in the forecast through the weekend. Temperatures will be closer to average over the weekend but still slightly above normal with highs in the upper 70s.

Early next week, very low rain chances come into the forecast with a little bit of moisture returning Monday.

Forecast models continue to suggest a stronger front moving through toward the end of next week, which would eventually bring us a cool down.

However, the forecast models are in disagreement on when that front and cooler weather will arrive.

Either way, it looks like a big overall pattern change is coming to the atmosphere which will allow for more cold fronts at the end of December and therefore, cooler weather.
