Today will be soggy, but drier days are ahead

While temperatures fall in states along the mid-west and the east coast, Tampa Bay will be seeing a different kind of weather.

Monday will be soggy, followed by drier days the rest of the week.

A 40 percent rain chance was expected today as heavy thunderstorms move into the region, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Some showers were expected to dampen Tampa Bay in the morning, but rain chances will increase through the day.

Fog was expected to form through 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Storms, with winds as strong as 50 mph, will churn slowly through the region, potentially causing heavy rainfall.

Temperatures will reach into the high 80s.

In areas north of Florida, a cold front moving east chilled temperatures into the 40s, including in New York City and Washington, D.C.

"We're missing out on the colder temperatures," Marquez said. "But we do expect it to be drier."

A 20 percent rain chance was expected for Tuesday. But the rest of the week will be clear of rain and may even see a dip in temperatures in the mornings, Marquez said.

During the middle of the week, drier air will start to move down the peninsula as a high pressure front builds in northern Florida.

The average temperature expected in the mornings from Wednesday through Friday will be 70 degrees, while afternoons will remain in the 80's.
