Expect rain in Tampa Bay, followed by sunny skies later in the week

Cloudy skies and scattered showers were expected to cover Tampa Bay on Tuesday, but a cold front later in the week should lead to more sun and cooler temperatures.

A 40 percent chance of rain was forecast for Tuesday, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

"The areas of rain will be kind of scattered today," Marquez said. "There could also be some scattered thunderstorms."

Temperatures should remain in the high 70s and low 80s on Tuesday.

A 50 percent chance of rain was forecast for Wednesday, when a cold front was expected to stall across the region, bringing drier, cooler weather, Marquez said.

Temperatures were forecast to remain in the mid 70s Wednesday.

Once the cold front moves south of Tampa Bay, temperatures will cool some more, Marquez said, with temperatures in the 40s and high 30s Friday morning.
