Chilly morning, warm afternoon for Tampa area

Early risers may need a sweater today, but not for long after a quick warmup this afternoon and heading into the weekend.

Strong northerly winds are contributing to the morning chill, as temperatures are starting out in the 40s, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

But temperatures wil warm quickly, with highs climbing in the low- to mid-70s under mostly sunny skies and winds shifting from the east. Lows will drop into the mid-50s.

The warmth will continue into the weekend. Winds will shift to the southeast, pushing highs into the upper-70s on Saturday and approaching 80 on Sunday.

A low-pressure system, pushing from the east, will arrive on Sunday. It will begin to produce rain chances Sunday night, and on St. Patrick’s Day, before it subsides Tuesday.
