Weather: cold front brings high winds, chillier air to Tampa Bay

A mid-week cold front will mean cooler temperatures and windy conditions across Tampa Bay Thursday.

Wednesday morning saw showers and a few thunderstorms as a band of clouds moved over the area. By Wednesday night, the storms had moved on and a cold front travelling across the gulf of Mexico pushed temperatures down overnight.

Thursday will only reach the low 60s in most spots, and high winds will make it feel even chillier. But the chill will be somewhat balanced by mostly sunny skies, Kacmarik said.

"Windy conditions, but at least a lot of sunshine for us," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Diane Kacmarik said.

Thursday night will likely drop into the 40s, and could fall even lower in Pasco and Hernando counties. We won't see warmer temperatures until Friday, when temperatures will climb a full 10 degrees above Thursday's highs. Expect sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70s to kick off the weekend.
