anything like that, you're in good shape. ladies, as far as putting your hair up as opposed to letting it go crazy because it will be breezy, that might come in handy. look at downtown tampa right now. not a cloud in the sky. we don't expect much of a change. as we head through the afternoon there may be a few high clouds, but overall we are in great shape. we are a little warm, but i don't think these temperatures are gonna climb much more. 84 in tampa. 80 degrees st. pete. also 84 clearwater. and we still got some 70s the mix. as the winds pick up, it's gonna suppress those temperatures from climbing much more. so we see a lot of low-to-mid 80s around the bay area. they are not gonna deviate much from where we are right now. we will heat up to 85 today in tampa. but notice the cloud cover we saw this morning, that's all gone. if you were east of i-75 and north of i-4 you probably saw a little fog this morning. obviously, we are problem free right now and we are not anticipating even rain chances with this front, although a
12:17 pm
winds. it's not gonna be a big shift in the wind direction that you will notice. you will almost immediately feel that drier air coming in, and we are really going to enjoy it this time. can't break down the rain chances completely, but only about a 10% chance of seeing a few sprinkles. there is that front coming through. about 8, 9:00 tonight that's gonna move through the tampa bay area. that's when you should expect to see an increase in our cloud cover. around dinnertime for the nature coast. that's where we wille chances for showers, but they are minimal and they will not be much more than sprinkles. head inside for ten or 15 minutes to wait it out. and then by midnight tonight that front is completely through our area and you can just watch it come through on this map. so 8, 9:00 on the doorstep of tampa bay and then all that dry air comes in and we see dew points that are down in the 40s tomorrow. 50s feel nice. 40s feel absolutely amazing.
12:18 pm
through the evening. notice how 8, 9:00 they are starting to fall. you're gonna notice a bit of a difference for our inland counties first and along the coast since the gulf moderates temperatures just a little bit. but overnight tonight look at tomorrow morning. we are going to see low 60s across the area. temperatures rebound but only into the mid-to-upper 70s and then sasarday night into sunday morning look at this cooldown. we are expecting 50s area wide. even some low 50s, flirting with upper 40s for paof nature coast. a little dose of fall with an overnight low of 62 degrees in tampa. it's going to feel really nice. a little bit on the breezy side. we warm up into the upper 70s to 80 degrees this weekend. sup morning that crisp cool fall start with the temperatures again down in the 50s. we are looking great. and we hold that trend into early next week. looks like monday morning around 60 degrees as well. but we start heating up a little bit more during the afternoon and by wednesday that
