The cooler, dry weather we enjoyed over the weekend should spill over into a warm work week.
Tampa Bay residents can expect afternoon breezes, mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s and low 70s until Wednesday, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.
St. Petersburg was 59 degrees early Monday.
The winds were mild in the morning but should increase to 10 to 20 mph from the northwest later in the day, she said.
St. Petersburg and Tampa should climb to 68 degrees in the afternoon, which is still a few degrees shy of the day's average high of 76.
The evening will bring temperatures in the upper 40s and mid 50s.
Warmer and more typical March temperatures should come with the weekend. Saturday and Sunday should be in the mid 70s.
"At least that's back to normal," she said.
Rain could threaten the sunny forecast midweek. There's a 30 percent chance of scattered showers Wednesday and a 20 percent chance Thursday.
Marquez said no big storms are expected.
