Say goodbye to Tampa Bay's last cool morning for a while

Hope you enjoyed the cool morning, Tampa Bay.

It's about to get hot.

After a cool — if not chilly — Thursday morning that saw temperatures drop into the 50s and 60s, temperatures are expected to heat up into the mid 80s across the region, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

"This is really it," she said. "This is our last cool morning."

The warmer weather brings temperatures back around normal for this time of year after nearly a week of cool days.

Temperatures are expected to be even higher Friday, hitting 90 in some parts of Tampa Bay, Marquez said.

Saturday and Sunday should also see temperatures in the 90s and a noticeable increase in humidity.

The best chance of rain comes Saturday, when there will be a 30 percent chance of showers, Marquez said.
