Friday will be sunny and a bit windy. The afternoon will warm up to the mid 60s.

Tonight will be cold, but Saturday morning will feel colder. Tampa is expected to reach a low of 43 degrees and most other areas will be in the 40s as well. Brooksville and some other cities in Pasco County may get close to freezing temperatures, Marquez said.

The expected high temperature for Saturday is about 70 degrees. It'll be sunny and warmer, leading up Sunday's predicted high temperature of about 76 degrees.
