For early-risers, Wednesday morning will seem cool and a little foggy, but the Tampa Bay are will warm up significantly by the afternoon.

Expect clear skies and temperatures around the lower 80s later in the day and that weather should persist into the weekend, 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Ashley Batey said.

Feels-like temperatures around the Tampa Bay area

Thursday, a weak front may sprinkle a few light showers across the region but will quickly move up north.

The warm weather promises to produce a surprisingly good beach weekend with temperatures in the low to mid 80s and a small chance of rain, Batey said.

"Any rain we do see wonít be much," Batey said. "Besides with temperatures in the mid 80s youíll want to be around any water source you can. Itíll feel warm, especially for February."

Next week the chance of rain increases to 30 percent with showers predicted for Monday and Tuesday.
