After a rainy Sunday, skies should begin to clear up and temperatures will rise throughout the week in Alachua and Marion counties.

Temperatures will range from the mid-60s to the low-50s on Monday. A 20 percent chance of showers will linger in the area, but skies should be partly cloudy throughout most of the day.

Tuesday will warm up quite a bit as temperatures rise to the mid 70s, with a low in the mid 50s. A 20 percent chance of showers is also expected.

The rest of the week, from Wednesday to Saturday, will be mostly sunny with high temperatures above the norm. Highs in the mid 70s and lows in the low to high 50s can be expected for the remainder of the week in both Alachua and Marion counties.

Jason Hess, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said fog will likely hang over the area throughout the week as well.
