Despite heavy rains Tuesday night, members of the St. Petersburg Half Century Softball Club were able to play two games Wednesday morning at the North Shore Park field in St. Petersburg. Games are held each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from October through the end of March. Friday's game could be chilly, however — a cold front is forecst to bring cooler temperatures late this week.

Our first real taste of autumn is on the way.

Cooler, drier air will sweep into west Florida throughout Wednesday, dropping overnight temperatures into the high 50s across the Tampa Bay region.

"Might want to get out that jacket,'' said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

The drier air follows a front that moved through the area late Tuesday and early Wednesday, bringing showers to several locations.

Through the day, the cooler air will begin to arrive, dropping daytime highs into the low 80s or high 70s.

By Thursday morning, temperatures are likely to dip into the high 50s across much of Tampa Bay.

Forecasters are calling for a splendid weekend, with daytime highs in the upper 70s or low 80s under mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows should be in the upper 50s or low 60s.
