Expect these cold temperatures to hang around until the weekend

Overnight lows dipped into the 30s in much of Tampa Bay Wednesday night, and the trend will continue through tonight.

"It's colder this morning than it was yesterday morning," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

The same mass of cold air that brought sub-zero temperatures and more than a foot of snow to the Northeast this week swept through Tampa Bay beginning Tuesday.

Wednesday's highs only reached the mid-50s in the areas warmest regions. Frost and freezing temperatures were an issue overnight. A hard freeze warning is in effect in Brooksville until 9 a.m. and a freeze warning is in effect in New Port Richey until the same time.

Here's a list of low temperatures from around the area as of 7 a.m.:

Tampa: 39 degrees

Brooksville: 28 degrees

Zephyrhills: 28 degrees

New Port Richey: 34 degrees

St. Petersburg: 46 degrees

Clearwater: 39 degrees

Temperatures should warm slightly after sunrise, but the day will stay far below the average seasonal temperature. Another cold front will move through tonight, meaning temperatures Thursday and Friday will only reach the high 50s or low 60s and overnight lows will dip into the 30s as well.
