Here your Tampa area weather forecast for late Thursday into Friday morning, along with a look at conditions through the weekend and into next week.

  • Milder temperatures
  • Few passing showers
  • Nice weekend

There will continue to be clouds moving through tonight. There will be a few isolated showers that pass, but it will not amount to much.

There is a light breeze from the west that will continue into tonight, allowing for milder conditions than we have seen the past few nights. Conditions will be partly cloudy with a few isolated showers. Lows will be 50s to near 60.

Friday will have a continuation of partly sunny skies and a few isolated showers passing early, but then moving out by the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s.

A weak cold front will come through from Friday evening to overnight bringing in a brief shot of dry air. Friday night will be partly cloudy and cooler again with lows in the 50s.

In the afternoon the temperature will only be a few degrees lower than today -- in the low 70s -- for Saturday, but it will be just enough to make it feel very comfortable with low humidity also. There will be some low clouds in the morning, but skies will be mostly sunny in the afternoon.

Saturday night will be partly cloudy, with lows in the 40s and 50s.

Sunday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Monday will be sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the low 80s as a southerly wind kicks in.

Another front will get near us Tuesday into Wednesday. Highs will be in the upper 70s. There will be a few showers in the area Wednesday into Thursday.
