Chilly weekend gives way to a warmer week

Chilly weekend gives way to a warmer week

The beginning of the week will mark a return to temperatures in the 70s, forecasters say — a warm relief to Tampa Bay residents after a chilly weekend. Today will still start with overnight frost in some areas, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik. But daytime highs nonetheless will climb into the low- to mid-70s. Tuesday looks to be the warmest day of the upcoming week, with temperatures reaching the upper 70s. A weak front will drop Wednesday's temperatures while also bringing the possibility of rain, she said.

ST. PETERSBURG

Man, 29, fatally injured in crash

Neither a seat belt nor hospital workers could save the life of a 29-year-old St. Petersburg man involved in a one-car crash on southbound Interstate 275 early Sunday morning, authorities said. Florida Highway Patrol troopers say the crash happened about 1 a.m. near Roosevelt Road. Michael Andrew Hano was traveling on the interstate's outside center lane when, authorities say, he failed to negotiate a curve and lost control. Hano's 2006 Infiniti G35 skidded across the outside lane and entrance ramp, hit a guardrail, vaulted onto the shoulder and came to rest on the west side of I-275. Hano was rushed to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died. Troopers said Hano was wearing a seat belt. The investigation was ongoing.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, it better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher it can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
