Weather: Rain chance will creep up as week goes on

Tampa Bay will stay cloudy this week as a cold front stalls over South Florida.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said temperatures won't cool significantly until the end of the week, lingering in the high 60s and low 70s until a cold front brings a dip to the high 50s Friday.

"We'll end the week with some chillier conditions," Marquez said.

Overnight temperatures will dip into the 40s that night for most of the area, Marquez said, and could even reach the 30s in Pasco and Hernando counties.

Though clouds are likely, the chance of rain will be low early in the week.

"The rain chance will slowly creep up," Marquez said.

Thursday will have a 60 percent chance of rain and could bring thunderstorms as well.

For comparison, here are a few highs and lows predicted around the country this week:

Minneapolis: low -13, high 13

Dallas: low 29, high 65

Phoenix: low 42, high 73

Los Angeles: low 48, high 80

New York: low 20, high 39
