Cold front starts week off with chilly weather, winds

High temperatures will struggle to reach the low 60s today as an unseasonably strong cold front parks over the area.

Lows this morning will plunge to about 40 around Tampa and St. Petersburg. Pasco and Hernando counties will have lows in the 30s. Winds also will be gusty today.

The low this morning could threaten the record cold temperature for the day — 42 degrees in 1956. The normal low for today is 60, the normal high 78.

Highs will reach into the mid-60s Wednesday and to near 70 on Thursday as a warming trend begins.

Afternoon highs will reach near 80 by the end of the week. There is little chance of rain all week and skies will be mostly sunny.

Travelers also will want to check to see if winter weather in the northeast is causing flight delays or cancellations. A handful of flights to and from Tampa to the northeast were canceled Monday.
