Feels-like temperatures around the Tampa Bay area

The skies are clear and there’s little-to-no chance of rain, but parts of the bay area woke up to freeze watches this weekend.

WTSP 10Weather metrologist Ashley Batey suggested a couple extra layers of clothing if you’re heading outside as temperatures Sunday hover below average.

"We are getting a lot of sunshine, even if it is kind of chilly outside, it’s beautiful out there," Batey said.

Although Hernando County was under the freeze watch, most of the bay area’s temperatures were in the low 40s early Sunday. Sunday’s high was expected to be about 60 degrees, Batey said.

The frigid temperatures will stick around: Sunday evening into Monday morning has a low 43 degrees. By Monday afternoon highs are in the mid-60s.

Things warm up Tuesday and are back into the low 70s before another rush of cold air brings lows down to the low to 49 degrees on Wednesday.

At least we’re not up north, where some areas reported upwards of a foot of snowfall.
