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.

  4. To catch a poacher: Florida wildlife officers set up undercover gator farm sting

    Wildlife

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, state wildlife officers created the ultimate undercover operation.

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set up an undercover operation. They created their own alligator farm, complete with plenty of real, live alligators, watched over by real, live undercover wildlife officers. It also had hidden video cameras to record everything that happened. That was two years ago, and on Wednesday wildlife officers announced that they arrested nine people on  44 felony charges alleging they broke wildlife laws governing alligator harvesting, transporting eggs and hatchlings across state lines, dealing in stolen property, falsifying records, racketeering and conspiracy. The wildlife commission released these photos of alligators, eggs and hatchlings taken during the undercover operation. [Courtesy of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission]
