Weather: After a cold night, we're set for a sunny Valentine's Day

Florida may be one of the only states in the nation without snow on the ground, but Thursday night's temperature was cold enough to bring frost and temperatures near freezing.

"Some areas like Brooksville and some areas north of there have been in the low 30s," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

The National Weather Service Thursday issued a frost advisory for much of Pasco, Hernando and Citrus Counties. Around the bay, temperatures overnight dropped into the 40s, Marquez said. Fog was also an issue in portions of Eastern Hillsborough County.

"For our area, it's just a cold start to the day," Marquez said.

But the day will likely improve after a cold morning. Temperatures will climb into the mid-60s and skies will be sunny. We'll also have a rest from the gusty winds brought the cold front over the last two days.

"Kind of a sunny but coolish Valentine's Day," Marquez said.

Another cold front moving through the area tomorrow could bring showers Saturday morning and winds Saturday afternoon. Highs will climb into the high 60s and drop into the 50s overnight. Sunday morning will be cool, but the weekend will finish warm and sunny with highs near the 70s in some areas.
