    "That chance of rain is unusually high for this time of year," he said.

    Shields said some of those storms could be strong.

    That combined with a high of 93 is set to make for a steamy day across the area.

    Channel 9 chief meteorologist Tom Terry said those high rain chances are set to stick around most of the week making for a soggy start to the new school year.

    "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," Terry said. "Overall, a busy weather week."
