Martha Bennett of St. Petersburg practices tai chi in the fog Monday morning at Vinoy Park. “I’ve been coming out every morning during this vacation time,” Bennett said. “I do it because it’s so pretty here. I like looking at the water.”

Humid air throughout the Tampa Bay area will give way to cooler conditions late in the week, forecasters said.

But first there will be fog. And rain.

Dense cloud cover hovered over the area Monday morning, obscuring visibility during rush hour, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker.

As the day goes on, forecasters said, the skies will clear and the temperature will rise — high 70s and low 80s were expected Monday.

The heat won't last long.

A cold front moving into the area will bring a high chance of rain, with thunderstorms expected Tuesday, Linker said.

The rain will lower temperatures and moderate conditions, bringing the area back to more typical winter weather by the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will drop late in the week to the high 60s and low 70s.
