Severe storms Thursday before 'winter-like' cold front arrives for Halloween

Fall weather will be here for Halloween, but there may be some spooky storms before that happens.

A "winter-like" cold front pushed through Florida on Thursday, preceded by a line of strong to severe storms.

Gusty winds – over 60 mph – and lightning were the main threats, but there were tornado threats throughout the day as the system pushed past the Bay Area.

The cold front had already produced tornadoes in Texas and Louisiana on Wednesday.

"It won’t be as potent as you see it right now, but there’s still that possibility that we’ll see severe weather as it works its way through," meteorologist Jim Weber offered.

Weber expects scattered storms Thursday morning before the main squall line arrives midday. It should clear out by the evening, still windy and cooling off.

Things will continue to cool down and dry off Friday into Saturday, leading into a stretch of cool, dry days. Tampa will see lows in the low 60s this weekend, with even cooler temperatures to the north.
