Warmer temperatures coming after parts of Tampa Bay again hit freezing

Parts of Tampa Bay dropped below freezing for the third consecutive day, bringing more pain for area farmers fighting to save their crops.

Parts of northern and eastern Hillsborough County, Pasco County and Hernando County dropped below 32 degrees and were sitting in the high 20s and low 30s early Thursday.

But temperatures early Thursday were higher than the last couple of days for most of the region. And more good news: Freezing temperatures are out of the forecast through Wednesday.

"We're done with freezing temperatures tonight," said National Weather Service meteorologist John McMichael.

Temperatures should climb to the mid to upper 60s Thursday and only drop into the 40s and 50s Thursday night.

Friday and Saturday should have daytime temperatures in the 70s before another cold front sweeps in Saturday night. McMichael said the front lacks the cold punch that brought freezing temperatures this week. Low temperatures are expected to stay in the 40s and 50s through Wednesday.
