A bicyclist uses a blanket to stay warm Friday morning on 16th Street N just north of Haines Road in St. Petersburg.

Your weekend plans — yes, even your Gasparilla plans — are likely to be chilled by another cold front moving through Tampa Bay early Friday.

"That's going to make it even colder tonight," Bay New 9 Meteorologist Diane Kacmarik said.

Friday's high probably won't climb out of the 50s. And after three nights of near and below-freezing temperatures, lows Friday night will likely fall into the mid to high 30s across much of the area. That means northern regions could drop into the low 30s before dawn Saturday, and portions of the Nature Coast will be in the 20s, Kacmarik said.

Daytime highs will reach the 60s Saturday and Sunday, though, so afternoons should be more pleasant than mornings. There's a low chance of rain throughout this weekend, too, with partly-cloudy skies predicted through Sunday.
