Weather: Tampa Bay will be colder today as south is slammed by more winter weather

The same cold front that slammed much of the south and gridlocked traffic and air travel beginning Tuesday brought colder temperatures and gusting wind to Tampa Bay this morning.

"It's one of those days where you're going to want your jacket with you all day long," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

After a band of strong thunderstorms brought heavy rain and lighting to the area Wednesday night, temperatures dropped. Wednesday's high will likely only reach the high 50s or low 60s for most of the area today, Marquez said. That's a big shift from the mid-to-high-70s seen earlier this week.

Light rain fell in some areas this morning, and it will be windy with a low chance of rain throughout the day. Temperatures should warm up slightly by Friday ahead of a much warmer weekend.
