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.
