Rain, cooler temperatures ahead

Bask in this stretch of dry 80s weather while you can.

Tampa Bay highs should remain in the low 80s Wednesday and Thursday, but meteorologists say a cold front will roll in Friday, kicking the mercury down a bit and bringing the month's first chance of rain.

There is a 40 percent chance of showers Thursday night through Friday afternoon, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

Friday will be mostly cloudy with some showers and highs in the mid to upper 70s, she said.

Cooler air behind the front will settle over the area this weekend, but it will be dry. Expect mornings in the 50s and the afternoons to creep up to the 70s.

"It's still going to be a nice weekend," she said. "It's just not going to be as warm as what we've had."

The cooldown will hang around through next week. It could be Tuesday before the area sees 80 degrees again, she said.
