A cool day, with a chance of sprinkles

Tampa Bay's second coldest winter is behind us, but its cooler-than-average temperatures will remain for another day.

Temperatures were in the 50s before dawn Monday. St. Petersburg and Tampa were at 58 degrees.

It should warm up to the upper 60s, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. That's about 10 degrees shy of the day's average high of 77 in Tampa.

Expect a 20 percent chance of showers coming in later this morning or afternoon, she said. Winds of 15 to 20 miles per hour or higher should also blow around Tampa Bay.

The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday for Pasco, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties. The winds could bring dangerous rip currents, Marquez said.

Monday night will be cooler, with lows in the 50s, before warming up a little bit Tuesday morning. The afternoon should reach the low 70s.

The rest of the work week will be even warmer. Expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 70s.
