The view from St. Petersburg, with Tampa in the background.

It's shaping up to be a cool Christmas in the Tampa Bay area.

The arrival of a cold front Tuesday promised to bring the area's temperatures down to a more seasonal range, breaking the string of 80-degree days over the last few weeks.

Afternoon highs Tuesday will be in the upper 60s throughout the region, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker. Breezy conditions will persist through the evening before the temperatures turn cold overnight.

"The winds have picked up," Linker said. "There will be a lot of cloud cover in place and some sunshine later in the afternoon."

Lows on Christmas morning will be in the upper 40s in the bay area, with some northern counties seeing even lower temperatures, Linker said. The afternoon will see a return to highs above 70.

Later in the week will see increasing clouds and rain chances, according to the National Weather Service. Highs will continue to be in the lower 70s with overnight lows in the 50s.
