Rain and chilly conditions won't be putting a damper on the parades kicking off in Tampa and St. Petersburg Monday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
"It's not terribly cold and it's very windy, so it should be pretty comfortable," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.
Temperatures will remain in the 60s in the morning and move into the low to mid 70s by Monday afternoon, Marquez said.
The skies will remain a bit cloudy, but only a 10 percent chance of rain is expected, bringing light showers into some areas.
By Monday night, a cold front will begin to move into Tampa Bay, with temperatures expected to dip into the 50s.
On Tuesday morning, temperatures will remain the 50s, with some northern areas, such as Brooksville, forecast to see conditions dip into the mid to upper 40s, Marquez said.
