Less humidity means comfortable Memorial Day weekend in Tampa
Tampa Bay area residents couldn’t ask for a better weekend to hit the beach or enjoy a Memorial Day barbecue. A cold front, which is poised to move into the area today, will not bring cooler temperatures, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said. But humidity levels will decrease, resulting in a refreshing change into next week. After some isolated fog and a mild start this morning, highs will climb to the low-90s today under sunny skies and virtually no chance for rain. Lows tonight will drop to the mid- to upper-60s, and highs will approach 90 on Saturday and drop slightly through Monday – with the lower humidity.
