A cold morning will lead to a quick warmup today, but we start all over again in the Tampa Bay area on Saturday as another cold front passes tonight.
All areas, except along the coast, are under a Freeze Warning until 9 a.m. as temperatures range from the low-30s to near 50 along the coast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said.
The cold conditions won’t last long, as highs today will climb to the mid-60s — still slightly below average — under mostly sunny skies and lows in the low-40s tonight.
Another cold front passes tonight, bringing a slight chance for rain overnight, but cooler temperatures again on Saturday for the Children’s Gasparilla Parade. Highs will only reach the upper-50s on Saturday afternoon but will climb again to near 70 on Sunday.
