Drier weather on tap for Monday forecast

Chance of rain will go down

ORLANDO, Fla. – What rain is around will continue to fade away Sunday night. We'll be left with partly to mostly cloudy skies and lows in the upper 70s. 

On Monday, drier air works its way into central Florida, allowing for rain chances to go down slightly.

Rain coverage will be right around 30%, so isolated to a few scattered showers are in the mix. Some could produce heavy rain as they pass by in the afternoon. Otherwise, there will be a little less cloud cover and more heat. Highs will reach 93 degrees, but enough lower-level moisture will keep it feeling about 5 degrees warmer than actual readings. 

By Tuesday, the rain chances ramp back up with the next midlevel disturbance moving closer to the Sunshine State. Late-day storms with heavy rain will continue until the end of the workweek. 
Rain chances will range from 40% to 60% each day. 

Tropical update

In the tropics, the area of low pressure near the North Carolina Outer Banks continues the northeast path into the Atlantic. Upper level winds should hinder most development, but the National Hurricane Center keeps a small chance (20%) of tropical development in the forecast for the next 2-5 days as moves away from the eastern seaboard.
