Chilly, clear weather in store — at least, for now

If you're sick of the rain, you'll love Wednesday's forecast.

"It's finally going to be a dry day today," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Still, be prepared to wait until Thursday if you're ready for a break from the chilly weather, too.

Wednesday morning temperatures across the Tampa Bay area were in the upper 40s and low 50s as Tuesday's cold front swept along the southern part of Florida, Marquez said.

Afternoon temperatures should creep up to the mid to upper 60s, which is below the day's average of 70, she said.

Similar chilly weather is expected Thursday morning, but the day should warm up to the mid 70s, she said.

But the rain isn't over. A new cold front heading east from Texas will bring wet weather late Friday until Saturday morning.

The weekend should be mostly dry and cool.

Saturday's highs are projected in the mid 60s, and Sunday's high is just 62 degrees, she said.
