Frost advisory expires; temperatures to rise slowly

Tampa Bay may have felt frosty Wednesday morning, but actual frost isn't expected the rest of the week.

A frost advisory for the region was scheduled until 8 a.m. Wednesday, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

Wednesday morning, temperatures across most of the bay area were in the 40s and 50s, but in some parts of Hernando County they dipped into the 30s.

The lowest reported temperature, 30 degrees, was in Hernando, according to Marquez. Inverness was close behind at 34 degrees, with Brooksville at 35. St. Petersburg had the highest temperatures at 54 degrees.

Temperatures were expected to rise to about 60 degrees by the afternoon.

Frost wasn't expected the rest of the week, Marquez said, but it will still be warm jacket weather. Marquez said this is welcome news to some people, especially after the warmer holiday season.

"If they like the cooler weather, they'll probably like the next couple of days," she said.
