Enjoy the sunny, calm weather before the midweek storm

Enjoy the pleasant weather before heavy rains, lightning and possibly even tornadoes are projected to hit the Tampa Bay area by Wednesday night.

Monday and Tuesday are expected to be clear and sunny, with temperatures the high 70s, according to the National Weather Service in Ruskin. But come Wednesday evening, a cold front will move from the coast of Texas across the Gulf of Mexico, bringing up to a 70 percent chance of rain with it.

"It'll be windy and will possibly cause coastal flooding because the tides have been running one to three feet above normal," said National Weather Service forecaster Tom Dougherty.

The storms could last through very late Wednesday and possibly into early Thursday morning, but are expected to clear by Friday as the cold front moves through the area.

Overnight lows will dip into the 40s Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 60s. By Sunday, the weather should be back to clear, sunny and mid-70s temperatures.
