Still chilly, but warmer temperatures are on the way

Post-sunrise temperatures on the St. Petersburg waterfront weren't as low Wednesday morning as they were Tuesday.


Post-sunrise temperatures on the St. Petersburg waterfront weren't as low Wednesday morning as they were Tuesday.

It was another frigid night across the Tampa Bay region but not cold enough to set any temperature records.

Winds gusting up to 15 mph Wednesday morning produced a "feels-like'' temperature in the 30s across most of the region and the 20s in areas immediately north.

"It's still a cold morning out there, but it's going to warm up today,'' said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Temperatures Wednesday should rise to the low 60s after two nights of freezing or near-freezing temperatures.

Here are the overnight lows recorded across the Tampa Bay area as of 8 a.m.: St. Petersburg, 41 degrees; Brooksville, 33; New Port Richey, 35; Tampa, 37; and Clearwater, 39.

Temperatures should gradually rise over the next few days, possibly reaching 80s by Saturday.

By Saturday evening, another cold front is expected, but it won't pack the intensity of the polar vortex that has gripped much of the country.
