Rain gone, but chilly temperatures return around Tampa area

Published:   |   Updated: March 21, 2013 at 07:45 AM

A cold front has passed through the Tampa Bay area, leaving clearing skies and chilly temperatures before a weekend warm-up with increased rain chances.

Drier air is spreading to the south, creating the winter-like conditions with sunny skies and breezy northerly winds, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Today’s high will top out in the upper-60s – about 10 degrees below average – with lows falling quickly to the low- to mid-40s near Tampa and the mid-30s in northern areas.

Friday’s high will reach the mid- to upper-70s as winds shift back from the south, and weekend highs will approach 80 as a front brings a chance of scattered storms before another cool-down to start the work week.
