Forecast: A cold front, but no real cold, in this week's weather

This week's forecast will bring a rare glimpse of something we haven't seen in quite a while — a cold front moving in from the Gulf of Mexico.

A westerly wind will blow through Tampa Bay Monday and Tuesday ahead of the front, which will move into North Florida today and tomorrow.

"The front is going to move slowly southward mid-week," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

The bad news is that daytime temperatures will actually increase with the coming cold front. But it will also bring drier air, meaning less humidity and a lower rain chance Thursday.

Highs should be in the low 90s all week, and Thursday and Friday will top the week at 93 degrees. Overnight lows will be in the low 80s to high 70s Monday and Tuesday, but the cold front will bring cooler overnight temperatures. Wednesday's overnight low will be 74 degrees, and Thursday will dip to 75 degrees.

Rain chances will vary throughout the week, with Tuesday carrying the highest chance at 50 percent. Thursday's rain chance will be the week's lowest, at only 10 percent.

For some perspective, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week:

Phoenix: high 107 degrees, low 85 degrees

New York: high 82 degrees, low 62 degrees

Seattle: high 85 degrees, low 60 degrees

Detroit: high 76 degrees, low 57 degrees

Indianapolis: high 79 degrees, low 53 degrees
