Morning clouds should give way to sunshine today before a front moves through later this week, according to WTSP 10Weather. Highs should top 80.

• Hillary Clinton swings through Central Florida today, starting with a private fundraiser this morning at former state Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink's Thonotosassa home.

If all goes as planned, it will become one of the three largest indoor farms in North America. Times food critic Laura Reiley has the story later this morning on tampabay.com.
