Beginning Sunday, the high pressure shifts to southern Florida as a frontal trough settles in along the Gulf coast. This will set up an onshore slow pattern.
The trough settles into northern Florida by mid- week keeping a westerly flow. Plenty of moisture will be across the area for the work week, so rain chances will be a little higher than normal.
The wind pattern and plenty of moisture will keep the mornings on the warm side of normal and the afternoon temperatures around normal starting Saturday into the work week.
Expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms.
The showers and storms will start at the Gulf coast with the greatest coverage in the afternoons in the interior next week.
