Another cool morning greets Tampa Bay residents

Some of the coldest temperatures of the year greeted Tampa Bay residents Thursday morning after the mercury dipped into the 30s and 40s, meteorologists say.

The cooler weather should stick around throughout the day and into Friday morning before temperatures warm up into the low 70s, said Brian McClure, a Bay News 9 meteorologist.

"The warming trend really kicks in tomorrow," he said.

That bodes well for New Year's Eve festivities. Highs for Saturday and Sunday are forecast to be in the mid 70s, while lows will be in the mid 50s. The forecast calls for lots of sun.

But don't expect the warm weather to last for long.

Temperatures next week are expected to drop even lower than they did this week, McClure said.
