ORLANDO, Fla. – Sunday has been cloudy, but more sunshine is expected for Labor Day Monday.

Most of Sunday's rain will diminish overnight, but some debris showers may continue past 9 p.m. 

Overnight lows will be packed with humidity, making it feel even warmer than it is. Temperatures will range from 75 degrees in Orlando and Palm Bay to 70 degrees in Ocala.

"Morning sunshine will give way to afternoon showers," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.

There is a 40 percent chance of rain Monday and temperatures will reach 92 degrees in Orlando, 91 degrees in Melbourne and 89 degrees in Daytona Beach.

"The remainder of the week looks typical for this time of year, with temperatures near or above 90 and a chance of rain around 50-60 percent," Treanor said.
