More cold weather headed to Tampa Bay region

Another dose of cold weather is headed for the Tampa Bay area, bringing possible thunderstorms and temperatures dipping into the 40s or even the 30s in some areas.

A line of storms will start moving through Wedneday night, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Some time after 9 p.m., she said, the colder, drier air will start to move in.

Marquez does not anticipate tornadoes but some thunderstorms are possible.

Thursday morning will be chilly, with temperatures in Tampa, St. Petersburg and other bay areas in the low 40s. Inland areas such as Hernando County will be in the 30s.

High temperatures Thursday and Friday are expected to be in the 60s.

Other parts of the United States have seen more dangerous weather this week and forecasters are keeping an eye on a broad area of the south as the cold front moves through, creating conditions that could spawn tornado development.

"The energy that's causing all the bad storms up there isn't going to make it down here," said Jennifer Colson, National Weather Service meteorologist.
