Chilly, windy day to precede weekend warmup

Thursday's weather is looking familiar. So dress for the same breezy, brisk conditions Wednesday brought us.

Tampa Bay was in the upper 40s and 50s Thursday morning, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. Tampa was 59 degrees, St. Petersburg was 50 and Brandon was 45.

Afternoon temperatures should climb to the upper 50s, maybe touching 60, she said. Expect winds around 10 to 20 miles per hour.

Thursday night should be clear and cold with patchy frost. Most areas would be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

It's well below average for March. Marquez said the normal average high in Tampa for the month is 74 degrees.

"Low to mid 70s is what we're used to this time of year," she said.

Friday will kick-start a slight warming trend.

Friday will be sunny and less windy, with most of the bay area getting highs in the low 60s. Saturday's highs are expected to be in the mid 60s, and Sunday could hit the 70s.

The best part? Unlike the past few weeks, there's no cold front coming to spoil the work week.

"I think we'll be up to the mid 70s by Tuesday," she said.
