Weather warming in time for weekend

Florida is expected to get back to its regular warm self this weekend.

Temperatures are predicted to climb into the 70s across Tampa Bay on Friday, and things will only get hotter from there, said Michael Lewis, National Weather Service meteorologist.

Saturday will bring more mid-70s weather, but it will be in the 80s inland on Sunday.

Nights will still be chilly, with lows of 40s and 50s, he said.

And for those heading to the beach, keep in mind that the warmer land temperatures haven't translated to the gulf yet. The temperature this morning off St. Petersburg, according to the National Oceanographic Data Center, is a chilly 65.3 degrees.

But another frigid cold front — and the rain that comes with one — isn't expected until Tuesday, Lewis said.

"It should be a pretty nice weekend," he said.
