ORLANDO, Fla. – The wet pattern Central Florida has endured this weekend is expected to continue.
"The best chance for storms will be along the coast, with activity becoming more showery in nature late today," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said. "Cloud to ground lightning strikes, heavy downpours and wind gusts of 30 mph will be possible within any storm."

Because of the high water table and continued standing water in some areas, much of the eastern portion of Central Florida remains susceptible to flooding.
Some parts of Central Florida could receive 8-10 inches of rain, with higher amounts possible.
A flash flood warning was issued for Central Brevard County and is expected to remain in place until 2:30 a.m. Palm Bay, Melbourne, Indialantic, Malabar, Satellite Beach, Melbourne Beach, Floridana Beach, Merritt Island, Cocoa and the Barrier Island are expected to see flooding.
Palm Bay police issued a traffic advisory Sunday night after several roads encountered flooding. Those roads include Fallon Boulevard, Kingswood Drive, Water Drive, Hessey Avenue and some parts of US-1.
"Please do not attempt to drive on flooded roadways or go around barricades," the department said in a Facebook post.
Other roads in the county that have been shut down include West Eau Gallie and A1A.

Monday will bring a few hints of sunshine, but rain will continue to push in from the Atlantic Ocean. Temperatures will be slightly below 90 degrees.
Small craft warnings and high rip current threats are expected to remain in place through Thursday.
"Keep your umbrella handy for the week," Treanor said.
