BRADENTON -- It's warm and humid across the Tampa Bay area Monday.

Here's what you need to know today:

Surface low pressure along the northern gulf coast will move northeast today. An upper ridge is over Florida.

That means it will be warm with partly sunny skies and a chance of isolated showers today.

Near record high temperatures are expected this afternoon with most of Tampa Bay in the upper 80s.

Southeast wind becomes southwest 10-15 mph.

Tonight, the low continues to move northeast while a front in the Gulf of Mexico moves east and stalls.

There will be partly cloudy skies tonight with warm and muggy conditions and lows in the low to mid 70s.

Tuesday will be partly sunny with a 20 percent chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures will continue to run above normal with afternoon highs in the upper 80s and morning lows in the 70s.

Wednesday will be similar with a 20 percent chance of showers and highs in the upper 80s.
