Al Morel, tucked behind mangroves out of the wind, tries his luck while wade fishing with his fly rod in the Weedon Island Preserve Wednesday morning.

A cold front sweeping through Wednesday morning cooled Tampa Bay down to about 10 degrees less than Tuesday, bringing brief morning rain in its path.

The highs were expected to be in the mid-60s Wednesday, said Juli Marquez, Bay News 9 meteorologist. However, that temperature was predicted to climb into the high 70s over the weekend.

Tampa Bay was predicted to warm up gradually through the end of the week, giving reprieve from the sweeping series of cold fronts.

Nights may still be chilly, said Tyler Fleming, National Weather Service meterologist.

Wednesday night was expected to be in the 40s for most of Tampa Bay and in the 30s for Pasco and Hernando counties.

Another cold front wasn't predicted within the next week, Marquez said.

  3. Review: Jason Aldean fires up a country-dude party at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre

    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
