What you need to know for Friday, April 2, 2021

Good morning and happy Friday!

TAMPA, Fla. — Rise and shine! We made it to Friday. 

April showers bring... a blast of chilly air? 🥶

We get it, forecasting temperatures in the 40s for some parts of the Tampa Bay area might have seemed like an April Fools' joke. But, waking up this morning you'll see we weren't kidding! 

A late-season chill is in the air this morning thanks to breezy northerly winds and temperatures in the 40s. There will be plenty of sunshine today, but a continued northerly wind will keep temps below normal this afternoon with highs in the upper 60s.

Tonight into tomorrow morning will be a lot like this morning, with breezy and cool conditions as temperatures return to the mid-upper 40s. From there, temps will warm through the weekend with highs back into the mid-upper 70s.
