Grab those jackets and pull out an extra blanket from the linen closest – this morning’s cold temperatures were just a taste of what’s in store for the New Tampa area over the next few days.
According to the National Weather Service, New Tampa residents should brace for a few more chilly days ahead before things start to warm up again going into the weekend.
Low temperatures overnight Thursday, Jan. 31, are expected to dip near freezing and today’s high will only climb to the mid-60s.
Friday’s weather is much the same with only a warming of a degree or two expected during the day and in the overnight hours.
Things do start to heat up as the weekend progresses. Look for highs in the lower 70s and lows in the mid-40s through Monday.
Rain isn’t in the forecast over the next few days, but the dry, gusty conditions have caused the National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning for the entire Tampa Bay area through 7 p.m. Jan. 31. This type of warning is issued when conditions are favorable for the rapid spread of wildfires in an area.
