2011 arrived wet and cool in Tampa with 6.28 inches of rain falling during January, making the first month of the new year the fifth wettest January since records began in 1890. A frontal passage on the 16th-17th deposited over 2 inches of rain and a second strong frontal passage on the 25th was accompanied by an active squall line that move southward across the state resulting in dozens of tornado warnings.
Although there where no confirmed tornadoes there were several several reports of strait-line wind damage in the greater Tampa Bay area.
The colder than normal trend in Tampa from December continued through January, however, it was not a severe. January's mean temperature in Tampa was 58.7f some 2.6f below normal. Temperatures ranged from low of 31 on the 13th to a warm high of 79 on the 25th (just prior to the passage of the strong squall line).
