ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — It will be another cold morning as you walk out the door Thursday. 

  • Patchy frost
  • Slow warming trend
  • Weekend rain chance

Expect partly cloudy skies overnight into early Thursday.

The high clouds can make a big difference in how low the temperatures drop. When the skies are clear, the temperatures drop lower.

If the clouds stick around, the temperatures might not get quite as cold. Either way, it will feel chilly, but those clouds can obviously be the difference in if we get any frost.

The lows will be in the low to mid 30s in Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, eastern Hillsborough, and western Polk counties. As a result, there could be some patchy frost in those areas.

Elsewhere, temperatures will stay in the upper 30s to 40s.

Thursday will be partly sunny and cool, but not as cold as the past couple days with highs back into the mid 60s in the afternoon. The winds will be lighter also, which will add to a more comfortable feel.

Thursday night will be cool, but not as cold, with lows in the 40s and 50s.

Friday will be partly cloudy with highs getting back into the mid 70s.

Clouds will continue to increase this weekend, with a good chance of showers on Saturday passing through the area. Highs will be in the upper 70s.

Sunday will feature a lower chance for a few showers with highs near 80.

Next week will feature warmer, muggier conditions Monday and Tuesday, with highs near 80 both days.

There will be a small chance for a few showers Monday and then a much higher chance of showers on Tuesday as the next cold front moves down toward us.
