Weather: a rainy week ahead

Warmer weather is ahead, but Tampa Bay won't see an abundance of sunshine this week.

Monday started off wet with heavy, brief showers in many areas. Those downpours could continue through the day and will be heaviest south of Tampa, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said. Where it isn't raining, it will likely be overcast.

"It's gonna be mostly cloudy at times for the next few days," Marquez said.

The chance of rain will carry through most of the week. The highest rain chance will happen Wednesday after a cold front sweeps through late Tuesday night, Marquez said.

Temperatures will drop Wednesday after that cold front moves through too, Marquez said, meaning "kind of a raw, very chilly, colder day for Wednesday."

Monday and Tuesday will be in the 60s for most of Tampa Bay, and some areas will climb into the low 70s. Wednesday will be about 10 degrees cooler, with most areas reaching the high 50s. Thursday will reach the mid 60s, and by Friday, the chance of rain will decrease and temperatures will climb into the low 80s.

"If people want really nice warmer conditions, we'll have that Friday," Marquez said.

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

Des Moines, Iowa: low -6 degrees, high 35 degrees

Los Angeles: low 54 degrees, high 75 degrees

Phoenix: low 45 degrees, high 75 degrees

New York: low 10 degrees, high 38 degrees

Milwaukee: low -16 degrees, high 25 degrees
