Thunderstorms ahead this afternoon

The fog may have burned off around Tampa Bay, but the weather could remain tricky for the rest of the day.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said a cold front moving in from the Gulf of Mexico will bring a high rain chance by this afternoon. There's also a possibility that strong thunderstorms could develop through the afternoon.

Colder weather is on the way as well. Today will top out in the mid 70s, but Thursday will be nearly 10 degrees cooler and overnight lows could dip into the mid 40s. High temperatures Friday will be closer to the 70s, and overnight temperatures will be warmer as well.

Friday should mark the happy return of weekend sunshine, too.
