Atlanta cold front brings much-needed rain to bay area

Much-needed rain soaked parts of the Tampa Bay area Monday.

Thunderstorms drenched northern Pinellas County by early afternoon, and hail fell in Tarpon Springs and Holiday as winds gusted to 40 mph.

The severe weather was part of the same cold front that covered Atlanta in snow and canceled thousands of flights, said Mike Clay, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

"But we're not getting anywhere near what they're getting," Clay said.

Cooler weather will hit the bay area later in the week, but it won't be as cold as December's freezes. Wednesday's high will be in the mid to upper 50s, and overnight lows will dip into the 30s in areas immediately north of Tampa Bay.

    I don't want to make light of the misery and death that Hurricane Irma inflicted on Florida this month. A lot of it was ugly, and some of it was downright criminal. We saw greed and pettiness on display, and it brought illness and death.
