Low pressure in the Gulf brings tropical moisture to Central Florida

Monday is looking to be wet all day, as tropical moisture invades Florida from the south. This trend is expected to continue throughout the week.

Low pressure in the Gulf is pumping Florida full of moisture pretty much all week. The pressure will gradually move into the Northeast Gulf, with a slight chance of development over the next few days. 

Fox 35 meteorologist Jayme King says that a band of vigorous storms firing off North of the lower Keys could enhance the low pressure a bit as it twists through the Eastern Gulf. Developmental chances stand near 30% over the next two days and 40% over the next five days. However, if the low pressure eventually transitions onto land, the threat of tropical development will end as it runs out of water.

The expected rainfall for Monday is in the 4"+ range across Central Florida.

With the rain and clouds come cooler temperatures, with highs near 78 and lows near 70 tonight.

Showers will continue into the evening hours with activity easing a bit late on Monday night.
