Ready for a chill? High will be in 60s Wednesday

A cold front through the middle of the week could mean temperatures as low as the 40s in some areas Thursday morning, according to the Bay News 9 forecasters.

Monday was expected to be the week's warmest day, with a high of 82 degrees. A cold front was forecast to move through the area Tuesday, bringing a slight, nearly negligible chance of showers to some areas.

"It's almost not worth mentioning," Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker said Monday morning.

What was worth noting, Linker said, was cooler temperatures expected across the Tampa Bay area at midweek. Forecasts reached only into the 60s in most spots for Wednesday, Linker said, and a few northern regions of Hillsborough County, extending into Polk and Pasco counties, could drop into the 40s early Thursday. It was expected to be windy, too, but that cool breeze won't last forever.

"It's going to be a short-lived cold front," Linker said.

Thursday and Friday temperatures should climb back into the high 70s.

Rain chances were expected to increase into the weekend, though, with a 30 percent chance of showers on Friday.

For some context (and maybe bragging rights) here are a few weekly highs and lows from around the country.

Chicago: high 47 degrees, low 25 degrees

New York City: high 56 degrees, low 30 degrees

Los Angeles: high 89 degrees, low 57 degrees

Minneapolis: high 45 degrees, low 10 degrees

Austin, Texas: high 73 degrees, low 34 degrees
