ORLANDO, Fla. – We are pinpointing a stalled front just to our north as Tropical Storm Claudette continues to move away from Florida.

The front will act as a focal point for more on-and-off rain Monday and for a good part of this week, leading to an unsettled pattern for Central Florida.

TRACKING THE TROPICS

A tropical wave located about 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands is producing a small area of thunderstorm activity.

The system has a 30% chance of development during the next couple of days before upper-level winds become less conducive for further organization.

The wave is expected to move west at 10 to 15 mph.
