Additionally, meteorologists are monitoring the Yucatan for possible tropical trouble. An area of extra moisture is expected to develop into a rain storm by Sunday and then move across the Gulf toward the West Coast of Florida. A lot of that moisture will move into Central Florida by Sunday, increasing the chance of rain up to 60 percent with thunderstorms also expected.

The storm may become a tropical depression or even a tropical storm as it approaches Florida. Intensity and strength potential is unknown at this time.

By Monday, the storm will be crossing Florida and producing a 100 percent chance of rain. Heavy downpours, with possible flooding are in the forecast. With the twisting of the atmosphere, some tornadoes also will be possible.

Rain projections are still high for Tuesday as the storm pulls away from the area but continues to drag excess moisture across the state. Slight improvement is expected Wednesday and Thursday, followed by higher chances of rain Friday and Saturday.

Temperatures will average 91 degrees in the interior and 88 degrees along the coast during the day and drop to the mid and lower 70s Saturday night.

Tropical Storm Bonnie has been downgraded to a tropical depression and is no longer a threat to Florida.
