Temperatures drop into 30s and 40s across Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay residents bundled up Thursday morning as temperatures dropped into the 30s and 40s and stiff winds made it feel like freezing weather.

Wind chill dropped the feels-like temperatures to 30 to 35 degrees in most of the Tampa Bay area and 20 to 25 in counties immediately north of Tampa Bay. Temperatures climbed into the low 60s Thursday afternoon.

"People really need to dress in layers," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Brooksville saw some of the coldest temperatures early Thursday, with the lows dropping to 29 degrees about 5 a.m.

Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg saw temperatures dip into the low 40s along the coast and a few degrees cooler farther inland.

Today should bring more of the same.

Hernando County is under a freeze warning today. The Tampa Bay area is expected again to dip into the high 30s or low 40s.

The cold weather is supposed to last until the weekend, when highs reach the upper 60s or low 70s, Marquez said.

Early next week, another cold front will move in.
