Weather: Sunny, dry skies on tap for this week

High temperatures were forecast to reach into the 90s as Tampa Bay enjoys a sunny week free of the rain that marked the weekend.

"It's just going to be nice. It will be a nice, warm week," Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Monday afternoon temperatures were expected to be in the mid to upper 80s across the area, with sea breezes keeping the beaches a little cooler for Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

The rest of the week was expected to be partly sunny, with temperatures a little warmer than usual and Thursday and Friday expected to be the hottest days of the week. Most of Tampa Bay should stay in the upper 80s, although some areas like Brandon and Wesley Chapel could see the low 90s Wednesday through Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, an area of high pressure was expected to move from the Gulf of Mexico eastward into the Atlantic Ocean, promising dry weather for the work week.

Rain didn't make an appearance in the forecast until the weekend, with a 20 percent likelihood of showers on Saturday and Sunday.
