6:15 pm
see a little bit of an onshore flow, and that will keep temperatures just slightly cooler for the immediate coastline. this evening those temps dropping down to only about 60 degrees at midnight. overnight low for the bay area 56 degrees, and winds light out of the east. we could see some patchy fog for areas east of i-75 with mostly clear skies, a little low level moisture working in from the atlantic, and also light winds. that typically is our setup for fog. i don't think we'll see anything by the beaches, but if you live in lakeland, portions of polk county and highland county you might see some fog. overnight tonight, fairly mild, 50 degrees for the crystal river. sunday gorgeous weather, high temperatures in the mid-70s. 76 degrees for tampa with winds out of the south. just a few mid and high level clouds from time to time streaming in from the ocean, quiet and calm for your sunday evening.

nature cove, it's going to be a great day to head to the beach or pool. 79 degrees in brooksville. cross the bay area, 76 clear water, 74 degrees in st. petersburg. mid-70s by the coastal areas, and manatee and sarasota county, 74 sarasota, lakewood ranch you're going to be warm, 78 degrees. lakeland around 79 and bartow checking in at 77 degrees. so during the morning, our winds will be light out of the east southeast. from time to time we might see a few mid and high level clouds moving across the sunshine state, but, again, nothing more than filtered sunshine. it's going to be a beautiful day. notice by the noon hour we have winds out of the east southeast across hillsborough county, but right there at the coast we have a little bit of an onshore flow as a weak sea breeze circulation sets up. that will, again, keep coastline temperatures a few degrees cooler than our inland areas but not by much.
6:17 pm
afternoon, head to the beach, air temps about 74 degrees. winds out of the east, southeast 5 to 10. let's talk about sunday, looking good, 76 degrees with a low of 56 so nice here and also nice weather for the daytona 500. good news shouldn't be any delays for the big race. now, things start to change a little bit. monday, tuesday, wednesday, and here is why. overnight monday into tuesday, we're actually going to have a little warm front lift across the area, which could bring some scattered showers. not a big deal. most of the moisture will hold off for us until we head into wednesday. so an area of low pressure stays to our north keeping the upper level dynamic favorable for storm development, again, to our north. so we're not really tracking severe weather with this system, if anything changes we'll let you know. here comes the front. wednesday afternoon into wednesday evening, in fact, until early thursday we expect some showers. the front moves through, and
6:18 pm
