Some of Tampa Bay reaches freezing; afternoon will be warmer

Clear skies and little wind gave way to cooler temperatures overnight, but only a few cities around Tampa Bay dropped to freezing temperatures.

Before sunrise Wednesday, Tampa got as cold as 38 degrees. St. Petersburg reached 43 degrees.

The coldest readings in Hillsborough County came from Brandon, where it dipped to 30 degrees, and Plant City, at 32. Those temperatures could drop to the 20s at about sunrise, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist.

"So it is certainly cold this morning," Marquez said.

The coldest spot was in Hernando County. Brooksville was a chilly 23 degrees.

Some areas in Pinellas County dropped to the 30s. It was 38 degrees in Tarpon Springs.

The overnight freeze warning expires at 9 a.m. Tuesday's daytime high for Tampa was 51 degrees. St. Petersburg warmed up only to 52 degrees. Most areas could reach 55 degrees or a bit warmer by Wednesday afternoon.

Wednesday night won't be as cold, and there is no freeze warning in effect overnight through Thursday.
