Tampa Bay area residents can look forward to a pleasant weekend featuring cool mornings and warm, sunny afternoons.
Friday morning saw Tampa drop to 59 degrees while Pinellas County saw temperatures in the low 60s, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. Northern regions, including Brooksville, saw a dip into the low 50s.
That should be the trend through Sunday, with afternoon highs getting into the upper 70s and low 80s, Marquez said. Skies will be mostly sunny.
"This time of year, I always tell people to dress in layers," Marquez said. "Because while you might want to warm up in the morning, by the afternoon you'll want to cool down."
The cold front with gradually disappear as the new week begins. Highs will return to the mid 80s again later next week, including on Halloween.
