Heavy rain could hang on later south of Orlando.

The additional rain continues to impact the St. Johns River at Astor. The river is expected to reach moderate flood stage later Sunday.

A drying trend will come to Central Florida through the week.

Rain chances drop to 30% Monday and 20% Tuesday.

Minor coastal flooding also remains possible, not from the rain, but from a northeasterly breeze and high astronomical tides.

The first big cold front of the season could be on the horizon by next weekend. There is still some uncertainty as to just how cool it could get behind the front, but this is the time of year we typically see the first fall front move through Central Florida.

Tropics update:

Phillipe and Rina remain active to start October. Beyond those two systems, no new development is expected over the next seven days.
