ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Skies will go between mostly clear and partly cloudy into early Saturday morning.

Temperatures will not be as chilly as the past few mornings, mainly stopping in the 50s with some upper 40s for Citrus to Hernando counties.

  • Warmer weekend
  • More clouds
  • Cold front next week

This weekend will be slightly warmer with highs back into the mid 70s Saturday afternoon. Clouds will increase, but there will only be a small chance of a passing light shower or sprinkle.

Expect partly cloudy skies into Saturday night with temperatures dropping into the 50s and 60s. Areas of thick fog will develop so visibility will likely be low in many areas early Sunday morning.

The rest of Sunday will be partly cloudy, with a 20 percent chance of a passing shower. Highs will again top out in the mid 70s and some spots will even reach the upper 70s farther inland.

Another cold front will slide through the area bringing cooler air back into the region for next week.

The cold front will come through almost unnoticed at first, but the gradual drop in temperatures Monday will be noticeable, with highs back down in the 60s.

It will be mostly sunny and nice from early to mid next week. But expect it to feel cool with highs in the 60s Tuesday through Thursday.
