Cyclists ride by the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg Monday morning. This week's weather forecast calls for clear skies and warmer temperatures.

A week of beautiful weather is ahead for the Tampa Bay area.

Temperatures in some areas dipped into the 30s early Monday, but will climb into the 70s by the end of the day, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

"Even though it's kind of chilly right now, it's not going be that way all day long," Marquez said Monday morning.

Monday will be clear and sunny too, and that pattern should continue all the way through Thursday. In fact, it will get even warmer as the week progresses.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will top out in the high 70s.

"Areas away from the water could make it into the low 80s Wednesday and Thursday afternoon," Marquez said.

Fog could be thick Tuesday and Wednesday morning, Marquez warned. And a cold front will move through the area Friday, meaning temperatures will drop and showers and possible thunderstorms will be an issue throughout that day.

For some perspective, here's a selection of high and low temperatures predicted around the country this week:

New York: low 18 degrees, high 51 degrees

Los Angeles: low 53 degrees, high 78 degrees

Indianapolis: low 21 degrees, high 53 degrees

Seattle: low 32 degrees, high 47 degrees

Phoenix: low 47 degrees, high 85 degrees
