After hitting 84 yesterday and tieing the record, we will likely break today's record high of 82 set back in 1972. I am forecasting 84 for a high today, 14 degrees above the average high of 70!

Skies will be partly cloudy and there is only a small chance for an afternoon shower. The stretch goes through the the weekend finally coming to an end late Wednesday as a cold front brings below average 50s and 60s for highs by the end of next week.

Today: Partly sunny and warm. Highs 80-86 with winds ESE 10 mph. An isolated shower will pop up mainly south of Tampa.

Tonight: Partly cloudy and mild with light winds and patchy fog. Lows will dip to the mid and upper 60s.

Thursday: Partly cloudy and warm, highs in the low 80s with winds SE 10 mph.
