Cooler weather moving into the Tampa Bay area will bring some of the coldest temperatures of the season.

Over the next two days temperatures will decline gradually, eventually dropping into 40s overnight Saturday and Sunday in the Tampa Bay area, and the into the 30s in counties immediately north.

The cooler weather is the result of two fronts, the first of which moved into region Wednesday, bringing scattered thunderstorms.

Behind the rain is cooler, drier air that will drop overnight lows into the mid-50s on Thursday and Friday nights.

A second front will move through Saturday, ushering in some of the coldest weather of the season.

By Sunday morning, Hernando and Citrus counties could see temperatures in the 30s, with lows in the 40s in the Tampa Bay region.

The chilly conditions are expected to continue into Monday morning, with lows again dropping into the 30s and 40s.

By Monday afternoon, forecasters expect a warming trend that should return temperature to seasonal norms.
