Wind and rain to clear up by Thanksgiving

Jackets and umbrellas will replace shorts and flip flops on some days this week as a cold front sweeps through the Tampa Bay area, bringing strong winds and rain.

The front by Sunday morning had ushered in clouds and steered temperatures away from the normal high of about 75 and into the 60s, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker. Boaters are under a small craft advisory through Monday.

"It seems colder for two reasons: Because (temperatures until now have been) above average and because it's windy," Linker said Sunday. "We may touch 70 but most of the area will be in the 60s most of the day."

He said the overnight low was expected to dip into the 50s, then rise again to a mild mid-70s by Monday.

However, Linker said, Tuesday and Wednesday will bring a "good chance" of rain and thunderstorms, and possibly some severe weather.

While the storms will clear up just in time for Thanksgiving on Thursday, holiday revelers are still in for a taste of fall as the high settles into the low 60s and an overnight low in the 40s.
