Wet weather returns as we head into the work week, tropics remain active

ORLANDO, Fla. — After a taste of fall, with the coolest morning since late May, our summer wet pattern returns this week!

There is a high chance of rain as multiple weak impulses of energy pass and a front sets up nearby, as well as a return of humidity.


Storm chances will be high during weekday afternoons and evenings with a threat for areas of flooding where heavier rains fall.

Temperatures should drop back to the mid-80s for much of the week.
