Temperatures aren't expected to warm up much throughout the day, with highs peaking in the mid 50s.

Friday should get off to another frigid start, but temperatures should largely stay above freezing. Pasco and Hernando counties could see temperatures at or below freezing. Brooksville is forecast to see temperatures in the high 20s.

Highs should rebound Friday to the mid 60s.

Saturday and Sunday should be even warmer. Lows are forecast to stay in the mid 30s and 40s. Highs should be in the upper 60s.

Meanwhile, most flights out of Tampa International Airport were on time Thursday morning after three consecutive days of flight delays due to nasty weather around the country.
