Weather: Get ready for rain, breezy conditions all day

The sun battles clouds over treetops in northeast St. Petersburg on Thursday morning as rain made its way in from the west.

CHERIE DIEZ | Times

The sun battles clouds over treetops in northeast St. Petersburg on Thursday morning as rain made its way in from the west.

Temperatures will drop and the rain chance will increase as a cold front moves through Tampa Bay today.

Afternoon thunderstorms rolled in yesterday ahead of the front, but temperatures remained in the 90s and barely cooled into the 70s Wednesday night. That won't be the case today, according to Bay News 9 forecasters.

The front, part of a larger system expected to affect much of the East Coast today, will make for a breezy day with a 70 percent chance of rain. The air will be humid and temperatures will reach the mid 80s.

By tomorrow, the front will push out humid air and make room for cooler, drier conditions. Friday's high will be 79, and skies will be partly cloudy with possible strong winds.

Saturday and Sunday should be beautiful, with highs in the mid 80s and sunny skies all day.
