Sunny, dry and cool in the mornings and evenings — a beautiful fall weekend is ahead for Tampa Bay.
Temperatures should reach into the mid 80s Friday, Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service, and dip into the low 70s each night.
Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said Saturday and Sunday morning will be cool, dropping into the 60s for much of the area.
"Because we had the cold front come through earlier this week, that's allowed the cooler and drier air to settle in over Florida, finally," Marquez said early Friday.
Days will be sunny and clear, afternoons will be seasonably warm and evenings will be nearly cloudless until Sunday night.
A north and northeast wind will push a light, pleasant breeze through area, and low humidity will mean comfortable conditions all weekend.
