Chilly start across Tampa Bay will give way to warmer afternoon

Tuesday's chilly start across Tampa Bay is expected to give way to temperatures in the 70s and low 80s in the afternoon.

"Even though you need a jacket this morning, you won't need one this afternoon," said Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez.

On Tuesday morning, it was 53 degrees in Tampa and 59 degrees in St. Petersburg. In Brooksville, which saw some of the lowest temperatures in Tampa Bay, it was 46 degrees.

Temperatures will creep up into the low 80s on Wednesday before a cold front sweeps through the area Thursday.

Rain is expected Wednesday night and Thursday in front of the cold front.

The system will drop low temperatures to the 40s and 50s for the rest of the week. Highs will be in the upper 60s and 70s.
