ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida is having yet another rainy day.

"A pesky area of low pressure sitting near the Big Bend area will slowly track across northern Florida on Monday afternoon," Local 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said.  "This low, which has brought rounds of rain for the last week, will do it again today."

Expect gloomy skies, with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Rain chances will be 70 percent for northern counties, like Marion and Volusia, and there's a 60 percent chance of rain for neighborhoods further south.

Clouds and scattered showers will keep highs in the mid- to upper 80s, about five degrees below the average of 92.

"This same low pressure system is also catching the eye of the National Hurricane Center," Campos said.  "They are giving this area a 10 percent chance of potential development within the next five days.

Forecast models show the low tracking over Florida before entering the Atlantic by Tuesday.

"Once the low exits our area, high pressure will rebuild back over the Sunshine State, bringing back a more typical summer time pattern," Campos said.  "Highs will return to the low 90s, with seasonal rain chances at 40 to 50 percent."
