Expect rain today, chilly weather this week

The weekend's warm weather will stick around through Monday, but meteorologists say the clear skies won't.

There is a 60 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms starting Monday afternoon and night, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

The Tampa Bay area was dry and in the low 60s Monday morning.

Despite the rain, temperatures should climb to the upper 70s in the afternoon, she said.

The rain will end overnight as a cold front moves through, bringing more chilly weather for the rest of the work week, she said.

Tuesday should be slightly cooler than Monday, with highs around the upper 50s in the morning and nearing the low 70s in the afternoon.

The real cool-down won't start until Thursday, when highs will only be in the upper 50s and 60s, Marquez said.

"At least for today and tomorrow, temperatures should be pretty mild," she said.

This weekend is expected to be cool with highs in the 60s. That's about 10 degrees lower than what we had on Sunday.

The best rain chance should come on Saturday.
