Weather: Storms and cooler weather ahead for the week

Look out for a cooler, wetter week ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

The early part of the week will be warmer, but likely rainy. Monday's high temperatures will be in the mid-70's, according to the Bay News 9 Weather Center forecast, and Tuesday will reach a high of 78 degrees.

A 20 percent chance of rain Monday will increase to 80 percent Tuesday when an area of low pressure developing in the western Gulf of Mexico begins to move toward the Tampa Bay area.

"Ahead of that low we're going to have some showers and thunderstorms developing," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Marquez said some of those storms could be intense, with strong winds into early Wednesday. The rain will move out by the end of Wednesday, but leave behind much cooler, breezier weather.

Thanksgiving morning will be in the 40's, Marquez said, and highs on the day will only reach 60 degrees. It'll be windy as well. Temperatures should warm slightly by Black Friday, with a predicted high of 68 degrees and expected sunny skies.

In case you're not feeling particularly thankful this week, here's a list of predicted highs and lows for the week from around the country.

Chicago: Low 22 degrees, high 37 degrees

New York: Low 26 degrees, high 56 degrees

Los Angeles: Low 52 degrees, high 75 degrees

Minneapolis: Low 11 degrees, high 36 degrees

Dallas: Low 28 degrees, high 58 degrees
