Kirk Milazzo, 18, of St. Petersburg skates at Fossil Skate Park in St. Petersburg on Monday morning. Pinellas schools were closed, and chilly weather wasn’t enough to keep everyone inside.

It's shaping up to be another chilly week, but a nice weekend could be on the way.

Monday began with temperatures in the 40s in parts of Tampa Bay, with Tampa at 42 degrees and St. Petersburg near 48, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. Clearwater was 39 degrees, and Bradenton was 36.

East of Tampa, around Brandon and Plant City, temperatures were in the upper 30s, but it didn't freeze overnight, Marquez said.

She said areas north of Tampa, such as Brooksville, might have had temperatures below freezing.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 60s later Monday, but another cold front will roll through this evening, bringing a 30 percent chance of rain.

It will stay chilly through Thursday, but Marquez said she's confident it will warm up for the weekend.

"All we have to do is get through the work week," she said.
