    Parts of Central Florida were drenched by heavy rain on Monday evening.

    There was a 60% chance of rainstorms with an average high temperature of 94 degrees.

    More than 2 inches of rain were reported in parts of Brevard County as heavy sea breeze storms returned Monday, chief meteorologist Tom Terry said.

    "We'll see more afternoon storms through midweek, then an even higher chance for downpours (later in the) week as a weak front stalls in North Florida," he said. "Overall, a busy weather week."
