A front will move through the Pasco County area over the weekend with strong winds, isolated rainfall and temperatures falling into the mid to low 30’s Saturday and Sunday night. These conditions will continue through Monday morning and then begin a warming trend.

These low temperatures and wind chills are dangerous to anyone who will be outside for a long period of time. Children, the elderly, and pets are especially vulnerable to the cold and extra care should be taken to protect them. Make sure to bundle up and dress in layers to keep as warm as possible!
