Tampa Bay to experience cooler weather just in time for Thanksgiving

Mary and Walter Jones take their regular hourlong walk just after sunset along North Shore Park on Tuesday. As the evening cool set in after the rain, they wore jackets and carried umbrellas. “I got caught in the downpour earlier,” said Mary.

The coldest weather of the season is heading this way, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Daytime highs through the week will hover near 70 with overnight lows dropping to the high 30s in some inland areas.

Thanksgiving Day should be cool, breezy and partly cloudy as a cold front moves in, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker. Friday should be "a good shopping day," with sunny skies and temperatures in the low to mid 60s, he said.

Early risers will definitely notice a "feels like" temperature of about 40 degrees, partly because of cool northwesterly winds, Linker said.

Overnight and Saturday morning could bring the coldest temperatures with spots in Hernando County expected to be as low as 30 degrees, depending on the wind, Linker said. The absence of wind brings lower temperatures.

Coastal areas probably won't see temperatures below the 40s, Linker said. "It's tough to get really cool when you're that close to the water."

The rest of the day Saturday should be sunny with the same temperatures as Friday but less of a breeze. "It'll feel pretty good," Linker said.

Sunday will be more of the same, near 40 degrees in the morning warming up to the 70s in the afternoon.
