FIRST WX-WX CNTR


Better rain chances on Monday

Spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue bubbling up along the US 41 and I-75 corridors this evening. Though the activity will remain fairly low in coverage, be aware that with these passing showers, they could provide a good dose of rain before weakening.

We'll have more moisture available in the atmosphere on Monday, and that should allow for a more widespread coverage of rain and thunder. Though the morning hours should remain quiet, past noon we'll be expecting to see some showers or storms begin to pop up, especially for areas along I-75 and eastward.

Temperatures look a little cooler on Monday, only topping out at 93 degrees in the afternoon. Though that is still warm, it is several degrees cooler than where communities topped out this past weekend.

A decent coverage of scattered showers and storms is expected on Tuesday with highs around 91 degrees. Return to index of stories...
