Cold front forecast to blow in today
A cold front through the middle of the week could mean temperatures as low as the 40s in some areas Thursday morning, according to Bay News 9 forecasters.
A cold front is forecast to move through the area today, bringing a slight, nearly negligible chance of showers to some areas.
"It's almost not worth mentioning," Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker said. What was worth noting, he said, was cooler temperatures expected across the Tampa Bay area at midweek.
Forecasts reached only into the 60s in most spots for Wednesday, Linker said, and a few northern regions of Hillsborough County, extending into Polk and Pasco counties, could drop into the 40s early Thursday.
It was expected to be windy, too, but that cool breeze won't last forever. "It's going to be a short-lived cold front," Linker said.
Thursday and Friday temperatures should climb back into the high 70s. Rain chances were expected to increase into the weekend, though, with a 30 percent chance of showers Friday.
