"Rain chances remain higher than normal Monday at 60 percent," Local 6 meteorologist Julie Broughton said.  "A stalled front to our north is keeping the atmosphere unsettled, resulting in periods of heavy rain and gusty winds, especially late Monday afternoon.  Storms will track to the northeast around 10 mph."

Areas that have seen heavy rain over the last few days could deal with localized flooding, Broughton said.

Daytona Beach on Sunday set a new rainfall record, with 3.54 inches of rain.

Afternoon highs Monday for interior spots, like Orlando, will reach 90 degrees.  Coastal communities will top out in the upper-80s.

"Slightly drier air moves in by midweek," Broughton said.
