Another record high in Tampa on Jan. 2. The high of 84 broke the record high of 83 set in 1982 and 1947.

  • Record high again in Tampa
  • Mild Monday night
  • Watching weekend cold front

This is our sixth record high since Dec. 1.

There could be some areas of sea fog moving in off the Gulf. A few showers are possible through Wednesday.

Then a weak front will move through around mid-week and bring a more northerly wind.

The cold air will miss us with this front to the north and our temperatures will only cool down slightly through the end of the week.

But moisture will return around Friday and Saturday for more shower chances, and eventually a stronger cold front could arrive over the weekend.
