Cold day, freeze warnings tonight for Tampa area


Published:

A cold front has passed through the Tampa Bay area, leaving a chilly morning and that will lead to an even chillier night around the Tampa Bay area.

Highs today will only reach the mid-50s under mostly cloudy skies, feeling much colder thanks to gusty northerwesterly winds, and Freeze Warnings will be in effect overnight until 9 a.m. for all areas except along the coast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Lows tonight will drop to near 40 along the coast and closer to 30 inland, prompting shelters to open in Hillsborough County on Wednesday and tonight.

Temperatures will warm slightly on Friday, before another cold front drives highs back to below 60 for the Gasparilla Children’s Parade on Saturday.
