After waking up in the 50s and 60s Monday, residents will see temperatures spike to a high of 84 by the afternoon with little to no rain and lots of sunshine, according to 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Ashley Batey.

Some humidity will work its way in as well, Batey said, but should only translate into some patchy clouds later in the day.

The warm conditions, fueled by southeasterly winds, will continue through the middle of the week until the next front arrives late Thursday, Batey said.

The front brings a 20-30 percent chance of rain on Thursday, Batey said, and drops temperatures for the weekend about 10 degrees with highs in the mid 70s.
