ORLANDO, Fla. — Showers have been intermittently crossing Central Florida, mainly from west to east. This same trend will continue overnight and rainbands stream in from the Gulf of Mexico.
The rainbands are associated with a low-pressure system that is tracking over the Gulf of Mexico.
The system will continue to bring unstable weather conditions, which will produce downpours moving over the entire Florida peninsula, especially during the early morning hours on Monday. There is a high risk of flooding in Central Florida.
Once this system crosses over to the Atlantic we could have total storm rainfall around 3 to 4 inches across parts fo Central Florida.
Between 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday rainfall estimates are not impressive, but very even across Central Florida. The area accumulated about 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain.
Models show heavier batches of showers and storms during the early morning hours on Monday. Make sure to avoid flooded areas if you are heading to work or finishing it up the preparations for the holidays.
