One more chilly night before a warmer weekend

You can shed the sweater and lose the boots this weekend. A warming trend is heading to Tampa Bay, just in time for this weekend's holiday boat parades.

"A brief warmup to look forward to," said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist. "We'll start to feel it Friday afternoon."

Thursday morning reached the 40s for most of Tampa Bay. Tampa reached a low of 44 degrees. St. Petersburg was 47. Brooksville, the coldest area, reached 38 degrees.

Thursday night will be in the 40s, and some areas north of Tampa will reach the 30s Friday morning. But Friday afternoon will reach 70.

Most of the weekend will be dry after Thursday morning brought less than a 10th of an inch of rain in most areas.

Friday night's low will be a more bearable 53 degrees. Saturday night will be about the same with a low of 55 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday mornings won't get colder than the 50s before giving way to pleasant temperatures in the 70s.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

Another cold front is expected Sunday afternoon along with some rain. Monday and Tuesday night will see near-freezing temperatures.

Wednesday could warm up to the 60s.

    The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least four of President Trump's golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

    A framed copy of Time magazine, dated March 1, 2009, that hangs in at least four of President Donald Trump's golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland, is fake. There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time. The real March 2, 2009, issue of Time featured actor Kate Winslet on the cover. But the issue makes no mention of Trump.
