Warmer weather should arrive in Tampa Bay Friday

Warmer weather is expected to arrive in Tampa Bay this weekend after two more days of unseasonably chilly conditions.

On Thursday morning, temperatures were in the 30s and 40s across the region, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. A frost advisory was issued for several counties, including Hillsborough and Pasco, until 10 a.m. Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

But things will begin to warm up slightly Thursday afternoon, Marquez said, with temperatures in the upper 60s and 70s.

"Temperatures will probably be about 10 degrees warmer than yesterday," she said.

Conditions will chill again into the 40s for most of Tampa Bay Thursday night. On Friday morning, temperatures were forecast to be in the mid to upper 30s in northern areas.

After that, Marquez said, "Finally, it feels like spring."

On Friday afternoon, temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s, followed by temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s through the weekend.
