Dry spell crackles to an end

Lightning illuminates the night sky over First Avenue N looking west from the BayWalk parking garage in downtown St. Petersburg on Monday. A long stretch of dry weather came to an end Monday night as a line of thundershowers — some severe — moved through the Tampa Bay area. There were no reports of heavy damage locally, though the storm knocked out power to several thousand people in the bay area. The showers ended a spell that included one of the driest Novembers on record, according to Bay News 9. More rain is expected today. Motorists should use caution this morning, as forecasters said fog is likely. After the front passes through, cooler, drier air will arrive with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s later this week.
