Tampa Bay highs expected to top 60 degrees Wednesday

It's finally warming up.

While parts of the Tampa Bay area awoke to near-freezing weather Wednesday, highs are expected to be above 60.

That's a significant difference from recent weeks. The high temperature at Tampa International Airport finally reached above 60 degrees Tuesday — barely: it was 60.1 degrees at 1:40 p.m. — for the first time since Jan. 2, the National Weather Service reported.

Wednesday began at 37 degrees in Tampa, 44 in St. Petersburg, 24 in Brooksville and around the 30s in Brandon, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

The rest of the day should be warmer and mostly sunny, and that warming trend will continue for the rest of the week, Marquez said.

Wednesday night's temperatures are projected to be in the 40s around Tampa Bay, with just a few spots north that could freeze, she said.

Starting Thursday, the Florida we're used to — temperatures in the 70s.
