Weather: A wet, warm and stormy week ahead

It's Monday, and there's a bit of good news in the form of a forecast. The work week will start out drier than much of the weekend.

"We get a bit of a break for the next few days," Marquez said.

But don't get your hopes up just yet. By a break, Marquez said, she means that Monday will only carry a 40 percent chance of rain along with the possibility of showers and thunderstorms.


Luckily, the rain chance will drop to 20 percent Tuesday, and will stay there until Thursday, when it will begin to creep back up. By Friday, the rain chance will sit at 50 percent.

Technically, Marquez said, it still looks better than the last several days.

"Unlike what happened over the weekend, there will just be fewer storms over the next few days," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Highs will hover in the mid-to-upper 80s all week, with Wednesday and Thursday predicted to be the warmest days of the week at 88 degrees. Afternoons will be particularly hot. Lows will only drop into the 70s overnight.

It might look like a hot, gloomy week ahead, but for some perspective, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week:

El Paso, Texas: high 106 degrees, low 76 degrees

New York: high 81 degrees, low 62 degrees

Fargo, N.D.: high 78 degrees, low 53 degrees

Seattle: high 73 degrees, low 51 degrees

Lawrence, Kan.: high 93 degrees, low 63 degrees

    It must seem as foreign to Northerners as shoveling snow is to those of us raised in the Sunshine State: The very-Florida conundrum of having to choose between work and family — between paycheck and personal safety — when a hurricane comes.

    A hurricane helps the rest of us acknowledge the police officers, paramedics, hospital personnel, public works employees and others who stay on the job despite the storm.
