Warm, comfortable stretch ahead for Tampa Bay area
A seasonal pattern has finally settled over the Tampa Bay area, meaning warm temperatures and lower humidity that will result in near-perfect conditions. The result: cool mornings, slightly above-average afternoon temperatures but with minimal moisture, and sunny skies with virtually no chance of rain. After some low clouds dissipate early this morning, temperatures will climb into the low- to mid-80s under sunny skies and a pleasant breeze from the northeast, News Channel 8 meteorologist Leigh Spann said. Lows will drop to the mid- to upper-60s tonight.Similar conditions will prevail throughout the week.
