Weekend weather: Cool mornings, warm afternoons

Here's the weekend dress code: Grab something with sleeves for the morning, but be ready to shed some layers come afternoon.

Temperatures should creep up to the high 70s each day before a cold front moves through late Sunday, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Most of Tampa Bay awoke to temperatures in the 50s Friday. Tampa and St. Petersburg were at 56 degrees.

Things should heat up for a mostly sunny and dry afternoon. Temperatures east of Tampa could reach the low 70s, she said.

Areas near the coast will be in the upper 60s, thanks to winds blowing in over chilly water.

The weekend will get progressively warmer from there.

After another morning in the upper 40s and low 50s, Saturday temperatures should climb as high as the mid to upper 70s.

"I still think it will be cooler around the coast," she said.

Sunday should be the toastiest, though there is a chance of scattered showers in the afternoon.

Areas east of Tampa could be at or near 80 degrees, with coastal areas a bit cooler, Marquez said.

As a cold front moves in Sunday night, the showers could continue through Monday morning. The front will bring Monday temperatures in the upper 60s.

And the rest of the work week? The forecast shows dry skies and another warming trend kicking off mid-week.
