It'll be another pleasant day, with temperatures in the mid 60s rising to the low-to-mid 80s this afternoon, according to WTSP 10Weather. The beginning of the week should be sunny and dry, with a cold front moving through Wednesday.

• Marco Rubio didn't want to be on the nation's political radar — not this early in the presidential race, and not with so much time left for rivals to take aim at the big target on his back. Yet here he is, attracting larger crowds and more reporters and trying to make the most of it. This morning, read about his Las Vegas trip in the spotlight.

• Plan your week: This week brings us Monty Python comedy legends John Cleese and Eric Idle, as well as Mel Brooks screening what he calls his funniest film. We've also got the return of Clearwater Jazz Holiday and its new pop sensibilities with Sheryl Crow, Gladys Knight, Buddy Guy and the Avett Brothers. Look ahead and make your plans.

• The Lightning are on the road, but you can still watch the team play at a watch party tonight at the Guy Harvey Outpost on St. Pete Beach. How many other hockey teams have fans that can gather barefoot on the beach? Get the details.

• Tom Bassinger studies the film and breaks down how the Bucs took advantage of the Jaguars' mistakes to post a 38-31 victory Sunday. Look for it at tampabay.com/bucs around lunchtime today.
