After a night of freezing temperatures, yet another front will bring a blast of more cold air to Tampa Bay Friday night.
Overnight lows dropped into the 30s in many areas, and temperatures were below freezing in some, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said, prompting farmers to spray berry crops with water to create a protective layer of ice.
Overnight lows from the National Weather Service:
St. Petersburg: 48 degrees
Brooksville: 30 degrees
Zephyrhills: 30 degrees
Dade City: 31 degrees
Clearwater: 39 degrees
Tampa: 41 degrees
Plant City: 34 degrees
The cold front that comes through tonight will bring similar lows into Saturday morning, Marquez said.
"It does mean it's going to be windy and colder on Saturday afternoon," Marquez said.
Most areas will dip into the 30s and 40s Saturday and will top out in the low to mid 50s. Sunday will be slightly warmer, with highs in the 60s.
"That's going to feel nicer," Marquez said.
Though chilly, skies should be mostly clear for the weekend. Friday night's cold front could bring a slight chance of showers, but for the most part it's sunshine ahead.
