Weather: A week of sunshine and clear skies ahead

A low rain chance and warm temperatures should make for a beautiful work week across Tampa Bay.

Monday will begin cool and cloudy, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said, but will warm into the upper 70s. Skies will be even sunnier by Tuesday as an area of high pressure builds in.

"Right now it looks like there is only a small chance of showers Thursday with a front that comes in," Marquez said.

That chance will hover around 20 percent, Marquez said, and the front will quickly blow out, meaning a return to dry weather by Friday.

Temperatures will also build steadily throughout the week. Wednesday's high will be near 80, Thursday will reach 82 degrees and Friday will top out around 84 degrees.

Nights will be fairly warm, ranging from the low 60s tonight to the high 60s overnight Friday.

"All in all, a nice week ahead," Marquez said.

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

Chicago: low 38 degrees, high 76 degrees

Salt Lake City: low 39 degrees, high 78 degrees

Boston: low 41 degrees, high 65 degrees

San Diego: low 56 degrees, high 70 degrees

Dallas: low 61 degrees, high 85 degrees
