ORLANDO, Fla. – Labor Day weekend is continuing with showers moving across Central Florida, bringing rain and clouds.

Easterly winds overnight Sunday and into Monday will continue to bring an occasional shower in from the Atlantic, News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said.

Rain chances along the coast will be 20 percent. Temperatures Sunday night will range from 73 in Ocala to 75 in Orlando to 78 in Palm Bay, Treanor said.

Monday features extra moisture from the straits of Florida, due to a developing tropical depression.

This will push the chance of rain up to 70 percent, with ​some thunderstorms as a strong possibility. It won't be a washout, but a backup indoor plan should be in place, Treanor said.

Highs on Monday will reach the high 80s.

The remainder of the week has a 50 percent chance of rain, and summer-like conditions will continue in Florida.

In the tropics, the low pressure system pushing into the Gulf of Mexico on Monday will end up becoming a Tropical Depression.

Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama already have a Tropical Storm watch Sunday night. TS Florence remains a fish storm.

There is a new wave coming off the coast of Africa that we will be watching in the upcoming week.

Sept. 10 is considered the peak of hurricane season.
