Forecast: Chill will give way to afternoon warm-up in Tampa area

Dress in layers, because this morning’s chill will quickly give way to a warm-up in the Tampa Bay area.

Morning lows in the region were in the 50s — the upper 40s in the northern counties. A breeze from the north of about 5 to 10 mph has made it feel colder.

But the temperature will bump up to the near 70 by noon, with afternoon highs in the upper 70s, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.

Another chilly night - lows in the upper 50s - gives way to possible showers Friday, with a 60 percent chance of rain in the afternoon and evening, accoring to the National Weather Service.

By the weekend, expect highs in the mid-80s, forecasters said.
