High pressure anchored over the Southwest Atlantic will combine with an upper-low over the Gulf of Mexico to funnel in tropical moisture to the Sunshine State.
A dip in the jet stream moving through the deep South will send repeated disturbances through North Florida, which will help to enhance rain and storm chances for the bulk of the week.
Rain chances will hover between 70-80% percent through the week.
A widespread 3-5 inches of rain will be possible through Friday. Isolated higher amounts will be possible.
Be on the lookout for localized flooding, especially in poor drainage areas.
