Weather: sunny skies this week, plus a brief break for rain

Except for a mid-week break for rain, seasonal weather and sunny skies are ahead for Tampa Bay.

Monday will reach the mid-70s in much of the area, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. The afternoon should be sunny, with overnight lows dipping into the mid-50s.

Tuesday will be even warmer than the day before, with a few clouds.

On Wednesday a cold front moving into Florida from the Gulf of Mexico will bring at least a 60 percent chance of rain through Thursday morning, Marquez said.

Temperatures will also drop after the cold front moves through. Thursday's high will reach the mid-60s, and lows into Friday morning will likely be in the 40s.

Although Valentine's Day will begin a bit chilly, it should be sunny by afternoon with temperatures in the mid-60s.

"Not bad," Marquez said, "considering."

More snow and sleet are predicted this week for portions of the South not accustomed to winter weather. In Atlanta, where two weeks ago a winter storm snarled traffic and stranded some drivers in their cars for more than 12 hours, snow and sleet are expected this afternoon.

The National Weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook, warning rain would start in north and central Georgia this afternoon and change to freezing rain and snow by night. The storm was also expected to last until Thursday and impact most of South Carolina and southern North Carolina as well.

In case you want to consider further, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week.

New York: low 16 degrees, high 35 degrees

Minneapolis: low -14, high 32 degrees

San Diego: low 53 degrees, high 75 degrees

Boise, Idaho: low 30 degrees, high 51 degrees

Indianapolis: low -6 degrees, high 31 degrees
