Tampa Bay can enjoy another day or two of dry warmth before an approaching cold front jostles the region with some intense weather, according to the National Weather Service.
The Weather Service said a high pressure system extending over Florida is supporting some increasing warmth and humidity. Temperatures Wednesday should start around 65 degrees before peaking in the upper 80s by the afternoon and falling to 83 by sunset at 7:56 p.m.
It should be dry out Wednesday, but as that high pressure moves east, it'll bring the chance for more moisture and heat Thursday. It should be a bit more humid and a few degrees warmer, with the chance of an isolated shower to pop up in the afternoon.
The real shake up comes Friday, the Weather Service said. A strong cold front coming from the Mississippi Valley will swing through Florida on its way northeast, pushing a potent system of rain and storms ahead of it. Right now, Tampa Bay has a slight chance of severe weather swinging through Friday afternoon, but thunderstorms and a isolated tornadoes could be possible.
The good news, however, is the front will push through by Saturday cooling things to the middle and upper 70s and drying out for the weekend.
