Weather: Another hot, humid day ahead

Monday dawned muggy and warm across much of Tampa Bay, and we'll see more of the same in the days ahead.

"The work week starts out warm — or hot — depending on where you are," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Today's official high is 87 degrees, but as usual we'll see a range of temperatures across the bay area. Marquez said the hottest conditions will be east of Tampa Bay, where highs could top out in the 90s. Eastern Hillsborough and Pasco counties will be particularly warm.

Beaches, on the other hand, will remain in the 80s thanks to a cooling sea breeze.

Rain chance will be low at 10 percent Monday and Tuesday. A cold front will move in toward the middle of the week, gradually increasing the rain chance to 30 percent Thursday and 40 percent Friday.

That front will drive temperatures down, too, and highs will only reach the low 80s by Friday. Overnight lows should drop into the high 60s by week's end.

It may feel like summer here, but for some perspective, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week.

Indianapolis: low 46 degrees, high 70 degrees

Baltimore: low 49 degrees, high 75 degrees

Austin, Texas: low 47 degrees, high 93 degrees

San Francisco: low 51 degrees, high 89 degrees

Detroit: low 43 degrees, high 67 degrees
