ORLANDO, Fla. - Central Floridians are making plans Sunday and searching for solar glasses as they prepare for Monday's eclipse.

Lots of clouds and some rain rolled in off the Atlantic Sunday as moisture returned to Central Florida. More rain hovered offshore.

"Moving into the evening hours, some rain will continue in the interior areas as heat and sea breezes mix to produce a 30 percent chance of rain," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said. "Temperatures will be slow to drop, eventually reaching 76 degrees in Palm Bay and Orlando and 74 in Ocala."

Central Florida can expect more clouds than sun for the eclipse Monday afternoon, which could create viewing obstacles. There is a 20-30 percent chance of rain. Clouds coming from the Atlantic could also be an issue.

"Tuesday and Wednesday have fairly low chances of rain for this time of year, but extra tropical moisture arrives for Thursday through Saturday and pushes the chance of rain up to 60 percent," Treanor said.

The remnants of what was Tropical Storm Harvey are being monitored in case of regeneration.

Invest 92, east of the Bahamas, is bringing extra moisture to Central Florida. That system is also being monitored closely, as it could intensify as it reaches the warm waters of the Bahamas.
