Tampa Bay Weather


Forecast: Fall has finally arrived in Tampa Bay

Heading out of your home this morning, you'll notice a crisp, cool breeze has replaced the soggy humidity that persisted through earlier this week. A much needed cold front has finally washed over Tampa Bay.

Welcome to fall.

Wake-up temperatures on Thursday are in the mid 60s with the remaining rain from Wednesday night's storms dispersing as the sun comes up. By the afternoon, temperatures will rise just a few degrees, to around 72 with partly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight temperatures will fall to the upper 40s, nearly 15 degrees lower than what they were Tuesday night. By Friday morning, it will be time to pull out those thicker jackets as the skies will be clear and temperatures rise to only 66.

The cold front will continue heading east, leaving cool dry air that should linger throughout the weekend, and temperatures will return to their average values by Sunday. Expect Saturday to be as cool as Friday with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s, forecasters said.

As the cool weather starts to return to normal on Sunday, another weakened cold front is forecast to arrive, keeping temperatures at or below averge. With any luck, the days of hot, humid upper 80s temperatures are finished for the remainder of the holiday season.
