It should be a great day for Cinco de Mayo revelers, sunny and warm. The rest of the week also should be mostly sunny and pleasant, though on the hot side, at least in the afternoons.

South Florida's Monday forecast calls for sunny skies with afternoon highs in the mid 80s and overnight lows in the upper 60s. It also should be breezy.

Tuesday should be a degree warmer.

Cinco de Mayo marks the Mexican army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, during the Franco-Mexican War. It also is a celebration of Mexico's heritage and pride.

Central Florida's forecast: Sunny with highs in the uper 80s and lows in the mid 60s.

Refreshing: From weather expert Jim Lushine:

What a difference a day makes. Everyone must have felt the cooler temperatures Sunday.

Temperatures fell about 5 degrees from Saturday to Sunday, but it felt 10 degrees cooler when including the drop in humidity.

Humidity can make a difference not only in how warm it feels, but also influences how fast the actual temperature changes during the day.

With less humidity temperatures change more quickly especially near sunrise and sunset. Inevitably, humidity levels will increase and be near normal value by this weekend.
