Brief cold front to chill down Tampa Bay overnight

Mother Nature is calling again, and she's saying put on a sweater.

Another cold front was expected to sweep through the Tampa Bay area on Tuesday night, bringing temperatures in the 40s and 50s, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

She said this front should be milder than other fronts this season, and the weather will be back to its usual, warm state this weekend.

Tampa and St. Petersburg should be in the 60s on Wednesday, National Weather Service meteorologist Tyler Fleming said.

High temperatures in Pasco and Hernando counties were expected to be in the 60s on Wednesday, he said, but should dip into the 40s Wednesday night.

Commuters could see some rain on Wednesday, Marquez said. A line of showers was forecast to sweep through Wednesday morning, with a 30 percent chance of rain predicted throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Another cold front wasn't expected for the rest of the week, she said, and the weather should warm up in time for the weekend.
