"There will be more storms into the afternoon Monday as we heat up an unstable atmosphere," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "Winds up to 60 miles per hour, 2 to 3 inches of rain and excessive lightning will be possible."

High temperatures across the region will heat into the low and mid-90s before the heaviest rain moves in.

"Plenty of tropical moisture is in place across Central Florida as there is an area of low pressure off the South Carolina coast," Bridges said.

The National Hurricane Center said there's a 10 percent chance of tropical development over the next five days.

"Upper-level winds will keep this system from developing as it moves northeast and away from Central Florida," Bridges said.  "Storms will stick around in the Orlando area each afternoon this week."

Sunday night, strong storms ripped through the region, damaging homes in Titusville and causing the Coke Zero 400 NASCAR race in Daytona Beach to be delayed.
