A total of 34 flights had been canceled early Monday at Tampa International Airport, officials said. About half each were departures and arrivals, with another four flights delayed.

Many of those delays were a result of a cold front that brought a line of freezing rain and snow from as far west as Missouri, with the heaviest concentrations in the mid-Atlantic states. The front also brought chilly temperatures as far south as Atlanta.

Despite flight delays, the severe weather up north didn't seem to touch the Bay area, with highs Monday expected to be in the mid and upper 70's near the beaches and in the 80's further inland, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

But the front will cause temperatures to gradually drop as the week goes on, bringing higher rain chances Wednesday and Thursday, Marquez said.

Temperatures will cool, but they were not expected to turn cold.
