Weather: Another hot week ahead

The coming week looks to be another warm and humid one across Tampa Bay.

Monday and Tuesday will top out near 90 degrees, with overnight lows dipping only into the mid 70s. Bay News 9 forecaster Josh Linker said afternoon showers are possible, but the rain chance will only be 20 percent on both days.

"Even if you get one, it wouldn't last that long," Linker said of the showers.

Those rain chances will increase throughout the week, reaching 30 percent Wednesday and 40 percent Thursday and Friday.

The cold front that brings those showers will bring a little relief, though, in the form of lower temperatures.

"It gets a little cooler toward the end of the week," Linker said.

The thermometer will steadily drop until Friday, when the high will be a frigid 82 degrees.

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

Chicago: low 42 degrees, high 86 degrees

Phoenix: low 63 degrees, high 103 degrees

New York: low 52 degrees, high 83 degrees

St. Louis: low 45 degrees, high 85 degrees

San Diego: low 61 degrees, high 91 degrees
