Cold front brings showers, cooler temps

A frontal boundary north of Tampa Bay will impact the region, potentially bringing cooler temperatures for Tuesday.

One of the season's first real fall cold fronts has made its way through the Southeast, but is now beginning to lose steam as it sags south through Florida. That said, as it makes its way into Central Florida we will begin to feel some impacts.

Showers and storms that fired up along the cold front Monday afternoon have drifted south and will hang around the Bay Area through the first part of our Tuesday morning. Most of the rain should dissipate before lunch time leaving mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies. 

The cloud cover combined with some morning showers will keep temperatures down on Tuesday. We will start the day with temps in the middle 70s and then only warm into the middle 80s this afternoons. It'll also be a little breezye this afternoon with a northeast wind from 10-15 mph and gusts near 20 mph.

This afternoon a few scattered showers or storms will fire up once again with the heating of the day. The chance of rain this afternoon will be 40%. 

The front will dissipate as it drifts south through the Bay Area into Wednesday. There will be about a 30% chance for a few showers on Wednesday before drier air really begins to move in behind the front. High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the middle 80s. The second half of the week will be partly cloudy with high temperatures around 87°.

Have a great Tuesday!
