Warmth in Tampa Bay is here to stay as temperatures continue to hold above normal each day thanks to some high pressure carouseling around the state from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic and back.

The high pressure is ushering in warm, dry air that'll keep skies sunny and temperatures near 80 through Friday. Following sunrise temps around 59 degrees, things climb to 80 in the afternoon. Morning sunshine should thin and push back lingering patchy fog.

According to the National Weather Service, the next few days should look fairly similar. Warm afternoons with overnight temps around 60 degrees accompanied be patchy morning and late-night fog.

The high pressure system is set to be pushed out by an encroaching cold front Saturday, but it should only drop temperatures by a few degrees, keeping them above normal. The front will, however, increase the chance for some rain. Saturday brings a 10 percent chance of rain while Sunday's is 20 percent.
