Forecast: Warm weather remains, but cold front will bring rain to Tampa Bay

A warm weekend across Tampa Bay will carry over into the start of the workweek, after some morning fog burns off and before a front results in clouds and increased rain chances later this afternoon.

Feels-like temperatures around the Tampa Bay area

A dense fog advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. for inland areas and along southern coastal communities as visibility has been reduced to a quarter-mile primarily inland and to the south, 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Grant Gilmore said. That fog could migrate to the north and approach the I-4 corridor before burning off later Monday morning.

Highs on Monday will reach the upper 70s with more humid conditions as moist air streams in from the south, Gilmore said. Sunshine early in the day will yield to clouds around lunchtime and a chance for rain later this afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west.

The front could produce showers later Monday night, but the best chance of rain comes during the first half of Tuesday, Gilmore said.

Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 70s. Once the front passes, skies will clear and cooler, drier air moves in, Gilmore said. Temperatures will remain below 70 into the middle of the week before conditions warm and more humid again heading into the Gasparilla weekend, Gilmore said.
