Cold weather sends chills across Tampa Bay

The cold front has set in, and it's got Floridians shaking in their Uggs.

But trendy (or are they passe?) boots aside, temperatures around Tampa Bay mostly ranged from the mid 30s to the mid 40s Friday morning, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist. Most cities directly around the bay were in the 40s.

The coldest city Friday morning was Inverness at 30 degrees, and the warmest city was St. Petersburg at 50 degrees.

A freeze watch was in effect for Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties for Friday night, and temperatures were expected to dip into the low 30s, Marquez said. Inland areas north and east of Tampa should keep an eye out for frost, as well.

As for the weekend, it was expected to be sunny but nippy, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s during the day.

"There's definitely going to be a chill in the air, so you'll want a jacket," Marquez said.
