Fog and rain will give way to warm, sunny week

Fog shrouds the buildings of downtown Tampa early Monday morning.

SKIP O’ROURKE | Times

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.

  4. New Graham-Cassidy health care plan stumbles under opposition from governors

    Nation

    WASHINGTON — The suddenly resurgent Republican effort to undo the Affordable Care Act was dealt a blow on Tuesday when a bipartisan group of governors came out against a proposal gaining steam in the Senate.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., joined by, from left, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., speaks to reporters as he pushes a last-ditch effort to uproot former President Barack Obama's health care law, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017. To win, 50 of the 52 GOP senators must back it -- a margin they failed to reach when the chamber rejected the effort in July. [/J. Scott Applewhite | Associated Press]
