TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Today was lovely, under sunny skies we warmed into the mid to upper 70s for the afternoon. This evening we will cool down through the 60s and into the upper 50s.

Before sunrise, a strong cold front pushes south into the Tampa Bay area. A line of showers and even a few thunderstorms will precede the front. Most of the rain will come before 8am with the last of the showers gone by 10am.

Behind the front, temperatures fall quickly tomorrow afternoon. We only reach the mid 60s around midday before we drop into the 50s during the afternoon with a chilly wind that makes it feel even cooler.

You’ll need a coat all day on Saturday. Highs stay in the mid 50s with that cool breeze continuing. The coldest night will be Saturday night as most of us drop into the 30s.

It won’t be as windy on Sunday, and it’ll be slightly warmer in the low 60s. The warming trend continues for much of next week.
