The storms will also move from west to east. The highs for Tuesday will be in the low 90s for Central Florida.

In the tropics, one tropical wave is moving into the Caribbean. Meteorologist Brian Shields said the system is very weak.

Another tropical wave is in the Central Atlantic and may develop further as it moves west. It is too early to know where this system will end. At the moment it is not well-organized and without a well-defined center of circulation, there is no model that will get a good grasp of its outcome.
