Warm and sunny weekend gives way to rain, cold front

After a warm and sunny holiday weekend, showers and breezy conditions this morning will usher in a cold front that promises to drop temperatures into the 40s by midweek.

The Tampa Bay area can expect the rain to start tapering off early this afternoon with some intermittent showers possibly lingering into the evening, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Brian McClure.

The front, moving in from the west, will bring cooler air that should push low temperatures into the 50s by Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are expected to be down to the 40s on Wednesday night into Thursday morning in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

"So it will be in the 30s from Hernando northwards," McClure said.

Highs Tuesday through Thursday aren't expected to climb higher than the upper 60s. A warming trend Friday should bring highs back into the low 70s, McClure said.

A small craft advisory will be in effect today, with winds forecast at about 20 knots and choppy seas at 4 to 6 feet, McClure said.

And with just days left before hurricane season ends Wednesday, there are no tropical systems in development, McClure said.
