Ducks mingle amid morning fog Thursday on Lake Maggiore in St Petersburg. Overnight temperatures dipped into the 30s in Pinellas County.

Tampa Bay residents endured a second day of widespread freezing temperatures Thursday as the mercury dropped into the 20s and 30s across the region.

Hernando County and parts of northern and eastern Hillsborough saw some of the coldest temperatures.

As of 5 a.m., Brooksville had dropped down to 24 degrees while Brandon, Lutz and Citrus Park were all in the low 30s

"For most of the area the temperatures are about as cold as yesterday," said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

A freeze warning was in place Thursday morning for Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando counties.

More moisture has come into the area, bringing a better chance of frost.

Thursday morning's freezing weather should give way to temperatures in the mid-to upper-60s, about 10 degrees warmer than Wednesday, Marquez said.

Friday morning will be chilly with temperatures dipping into the 40s, but no freeze is expected, Marquez said.

Friday should warm up into the low 70s.

  5. Men have body image issues too

    Health

    I have lost and gained weight several times in my adult life. It wasn't a problem when I was younger and working construction. An "ideal" office job 30 years ago started the yo-yo effect. I don't have any more weight to lose, but the potential of gaining it back is always there.
