Sam Henry, 26, of St. Petersburg casts his net Wednesday morning while fishing for sheepshead on the seawall at North Shore Park in St. Petersburg. “Oh, yeah, it’s going to rain,” Henry says. “We pray for that.” Henry said the rain is good for getting the fish moving.

A rainy and windy Wednesday should give way to cooler temperatures across Tampa Bay after a pair of cold fronts sweep through the region, forecasters said.

Residents can expect showers and thunderstorms and winds up to 20 mph before the first cold front crosses through the region this afternoon.

Temperatures are expected to reach the low 70s today and Thursday.

Another cold front will pass through the region Thursday night and Friday morning, dropping temperatures more significantly.

"The end of the week is going to be a lot different than how we started the week," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

The highs on Friday and this weekend are expected to stay in the 60s with lows in the 40s.

Some areas of Tampa Bay could get down to freezing over the weekend, Marquez said.
