Fog shrouds the buildings of downtown Tampa early Monday morning.

The Tampa Bay area will be in the clear after a wet and foggy start to the week, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory early Monday in 12 counties, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Hernando, Pasco, Polk and Manatee.

Visibility also will be reduced by scattered showers throughout the day.

But much of the moisture in the air will be pushed out by an area of high pressure, bringing drier and "more pleasant" conditions by midweek, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Although there may be some fog again Tuesday morning, it shouldn't last long, Marquez said.

"This weekend, we kind of had a little bit of everything: some rain, some clouds, some sun," Marquez said. "But as the week goes on we're going to see mostly sunny, pleasant weather."

Temperatures will remain slightly above normal throughout the week, hovering in the mid- to high 70s, experts said.

Early morning temperatures are predicted to remain in the 60s.
