Cold front will bring rain, cooler temperatures by Tuesday

A cold front will bring showers and cooler temperatures Monday night, but warmer weather is headed to the Tampa Bay area by week's end.

Monday and Tuesday will bring a 40 percent chance of rain with thunderstorms possible Monday. The cold front that will bring in that rain is expected to stall over the area through the middle of the week, but the rain chance will drop to 30 percent on Wednesday and 20 percent on Thursday, and by Friday skies are expected to clear.

That front will also drive down temperatures. After a warm, humid, foggy Monday ahead of the front, Tuesday and Wednesday will reach only the mid to high 70s.

Morning temperatures will likely be in the 60s, Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said. But it's nothing compared to the cooling we saw last week, when lows in some inland areas dropped to the 40s. Temperatures will rise into the 80s again Thursday.

"It's really not a big cool-down this time as the front comes in," Marquez said.
