Weather: cool today, but warming through the week

A cool start will give way to warmer temperatures by Friday, but skies should stay sunny throughout the week.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker said Monday will only reach the mid 60s, and overnight lows into Tuesday could dip near freezing in Hernando County.

A cold front moved through Tampa Bay on Sunday morning and brought the dip in temperatures, but by Monday morning a high pressure system was calling the shots, Linker said.

Tuesday will be slightly warmer, into the 70s, and temperatures will creep up until Friday, which will top out at 81 degrees.

"We'll slowly warm as we go through the rest of the week, generally staying sunny," Linker said.

He added there's a remote chance of rain over weekend but expects nary a raindrop will bother Tampa Bay until then.

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

New York: low 24, high 50

Des Moines, Iowa: low 17, high 44

Los Angeles: Low 48, high 80

Houston: Low 33, high 76

Honolulu: Low 63, high 82
