A warming trend just in time for the weekend

Friday morning was chilly, but not as cold as the day before. The weekend will be warmer, too. And next week will see a return to normal Florida winter temperatures.

Overnight clouds lingered until early Friday, keeping temperatures above freezing for most of Tampa Bay, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Tampa saw a low of 37 degrees while St. Petersburg's low was 43. Brandon dropped to 32 degrees. It was 29 degrees in Brooksville.

"The weekend looks warmer," Marquez said. "Those of us wanting to ditch the jackets will be happy."

By Friday afternoon, most cities will see temperatures in the upper 50s or lower 60s. Thursday temperatures never rose above the mid 50s.

Residents of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties will awake to temperatures in the 40s this weekend, with daytime highs in the upper 60s in most areas. Pasco and Hernando counties will be slightly colder, with nights dipping into the mid 30s. But it won't be as cold as this week.

Next week will start off warmer, in the 70s, with a chance of rain.
