Ideal week of weather in store for Tampa Bay

The splendid autumn weather should continue this week with mostly sunny skies, low humidity and highs in the mid- to high 80s.

"Tampa Bay is in great shape. It should be a beautiful week,'' said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez.

Light winds from the north should keep the humidity low through the week.

Overnight lows will dip into the high 60s, with a gradual warming during the day.

A cool front later in the week could bring some showers.

And if you're the type of person who likes gloating about how Florida weather compares with what faraway friends and relatives are experiencing, you're in luck if you know someone in Edinburg, Texas, or Stanley, Idaho.

Yesterday's high temperature in Edinburg was 95 degrees; in Stanley, the low was 19.
