Cold front brings lows in 40s to Tampa Bay area

Colder temperatures around Tampa Bay starting today are bringing things back toward a more normal range for this time of year, according to a Bay News 9 meteorologist.

Rain showers greeted many residents Sunday morning as a cold front pushed southward. But aside from a stray sprinkle, no more rain is expected today.

In its place expect cooler, drier weather, a break from the hotter-than-average temperatures in recent days, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker.

"It'll be a little cooler than normal, but's it's not a major cool down," Linker said.

Monday morning will start out chilly, Linker said, with most of the area seeing readings in the 40s. Some areas in Citrus and Hernando counties will see thermometers dip into the 30s.

Highs will reach the mid-60s, he said. Average highs for this time of year are in the mid-70s.

The cool snap won't last long. Another brisk Tuesday morning will give way to warmer temperatures through the rest of the week, Linker said, and highs in the 80s are likely to return by Friday and Saturday.
