A blast of cool, dry Canadian air is blowing into Florida, but it won’t stick around long.

Temperatures in Tampa will dip down into the low 40s Wednesday night, and we’ll struggle to make it up to 61 degrees on Thursday, despite plenty of sunshine.

“I guess we could even talk a bit about wind chill.  You get a little wind outside and the sun goes down tonight, it will be a little brisk,” FOX 13 chief meteorologist Paul Dellegatto offered. “And tomorrow morning as you head out to work or school, it will be like, ‘Whoa, it’s cold.’”

As usual, the Bay Area’s northern and inland counties will be cooler, but as of Wednesday afternoon, there were no freeze warnings in effect.

Thursday night will be just as cool, but a quick warmup begins on Friday and temperatures will be back in the mid-70s for the weekend, before another cold front.

"It really is a roller coaster ride for the next five to seven days," Paul Dellegatto observed. "The thing is, I don't see any significant rainfall on the way."
