The National Weather Service’s Ruskin office says the cold front that pushed through the area yesterday, causing some heavy rains and gusty winds, is likely to create more storms on Thursday and possibly again on Friday.

Meteorologist Robert Garcia says rain chances diminish on Friday, but sprinkles are still possible.

Overnight Friday, things start to clear out, and Garcia says there’s a nice weekend in store for Tampa Bay.

Highs around the mid-60s are expected through much of the weekend. A cooling trend is anticipated on Saturday and Sunday before things heat up on Monday.

Lows in the overnight hours Saturday dip down to the mid 40s with a high on Sunday only expected to reach about 60 degrees. Sunday night is expected to be even chillier.
